SORT BY Relevancy
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will ask the questions, why can't NFL fans and animal lovers forgive Michael Vick after all these years. After serving 19 months in prison and it being 6 plus years since his relesase, hasn't he paid his debt to society? We all make mistakes. Why can't he be forgiven? Do some people have more love for animals than peope? Is Michael Vick being treated as fairly as his white counterparts? Tonight on Thursday Night Football, Michael Vick starts as quarterback against much protest. We will be watching to see how much our society has grown. Some of the same people want black people to forget 300 plus years of slavery, but can't get over Michael Vick and the mistakes he made in his early 20's. If we exiled everybody who made mistakes in there teens and 20's, how many of us would be left? We'd like to know what you think on this subject.

On this edition of The Versus Podcast, we're joined by Justin Tinsley of ESPN's The Undefeated as we discuss the weird obsession that fans have with seeing athletes like Michael Vick punished past the point of the time they served behind bars. Once the time is served, why were so many Steelers fans adamant about not wanting Vick, yet when the Oakland Raiders had the chance to acquire Aldon Smith, their fans were up in arms celebrating? Is it because it's all about what value they bring to the club? We discuss.
Plus, we discuss Derrick Rose and the Dallas Cowboys and how it makes Tinsley quite sad.

The Steelers' decision to sign Michael Vick is already receiving some serious backlash in Pittsburgh.
Over 15,000 fans have put their name on a petition calling for the team to get rid of Vick, who signed a one-year deal with the Steelers on Tuesday.
From the petition:
Michael Vick is a convicted felon and no-class piece of crap. He is also a terrible QB which is why he has no team. Let's united as Steeler fans - as NFL fans - and stop him from playing on our team! Steelers fans united! Sign to keep Vick from ever wearing the coveted Steelers uniform!!
As of 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, 15,463 people had signed the petition.
The fans are upset because of Vick's past: In 2007, the former No. 1 overall pick wassentenced to 23 months in a federal prison for running a dogfighting ring in Virginia. Vick served 21 months of the sentence in a Kansas prison before spending the final two months under home confinement.
