I Agree (Sort Of)

NAACP Leaders Urge Fairness for Vick

Mr. Vick should not lose what he has rightfully achieved until he is found culpable: this means guilty in criminal court and/or liable in civil court (two very different burdens of proof). I am referring to his NFL contract only. This he achieved on his merits. His endorsement deals were built on reputation and reputation alone. He lost his reputation; he lost his deals. I have no issue with this sequence of events. Still, I watch with sadness as yet another talented athlete is unprepared for success.
