    I don't think you need to be an elite player to be a team leader.

    He's clearly one of the team leaders over there.

    Someone in Florida got 20+ years recently for a big ring thing. But yeah, Vick was made an example of, for good reason. Here's some info on various state laws, if you're interested.

    No, you don't have to be an elite player to be a team leader, but it doesn't hurt.

    Clearly he is not.

    If young players aren't respecting him, then they don't see him as their leader. Pretty simple concept.

    It would be, if all the young players didn't respect him.

    When you chose to take one quote from Vick and take it as the unwaivering truth, i can see how you could make this mistake.

    I wonder if it's because he's prolly gonna be gone next year or if it's because he sucked last year?

    Every QB who stepped on the field last year for the Eagles "sucked".. which tends to happen when you have an OL that specializes in "look out" blocks.

    Doesn't matter - he'll be hurt within the next few weeks anyways and frankly - if they keep giving Shady the ball over 30 times per game - he'll be out as well.

    Carry on. :)

    Some kill dogs as a hobby.. some kill deer.. some kill fish.. some kill rabbits.. some kill birds.. some kill squirrels.. some kill ducks.. some kill whales, etc, etc..

    Are all these people horrible human beings?

    Killing animals for our enjoyment and recreation is done all over the country..

    Killing & torturing dogs as sport shows me you're not only cruel but mentally you're not right.

    Anyone that does that cannot justify it in my eyes.

    He's got something wrong with him to have been that cruel.

    Why is it different from killing any other animal?

    Are all hunters and fishers mentally "not right", as well?

    You're really going to compare dog fighting to deer hunting and fishing? Are we really doing this?

    Yes it is different & anyone torturing dogs for fun is not right mentally.

    In both cases, the animals suffer and then they are killed.. are they not?

    The difference? Society has raised you to believe one is more socially acceptable than the other.

    Both make animals suffer and then die for human recreation and amusement.

    Fishers generally don't make it a practice to electrocute the fish, when they try they tend to get fined or arrested (it's illegal). Deer hunters don't typically hang deer. In both cases the deaths are far quicker and less painful than the months or years of mental and physical abuse that fighting dogs go through before they're finally killed.

    If you fail to understand those distinctions then I have nothing further to say to you.
