    So basically if you are a special person you deserve more chances than others? OK...Vick play a game nothing more than that maybe because we have so many star stuck people we have that put these individuals on a pedestal and above others. He is a ball player nothing more his playing does not do a damn thing for anyone of consequence.

    This is America. You get as many shots as someone is willing to give you. You want to argue about celebrity culture, feel free but it won't change as long as people are willing to shell out hundreds of dollars to see these players.

    Yes it is American which means some people will stand up and disagree with that and yes protest it too it is their American Right to do so. Hopefully one day people will wake up and stop acting like these players are more special than other people they are not. Some of these athletes are no more than street thugs with the physical ability to play a game

    Well that would be ideal, but are you willing to give up the Cowboys and Football to prove your point? Money is the only thing the NFL will listen to.

    Well, that branches off into boycotting the whole shebang, bringing up an interesting question. Are you, (or anybody else) willing to give up on Cowboys games? The only thing giving the impression that they are special is the willingness of people to pay ridiculous amounts to sit in a stadium and watch them. As long as people are paying, nothing is changing. Money has clearly trumped morals and the want for this entertainment has also.

    Does this mean the Klan will be marching in support of Matt Jones?

    I'm a bit puzzled by the choice the NAACP has made on this issue. While Vick has served his time, he's back, gainfully employed as a football player and states that he wants to get on with his life. He's not a paricularly good example of someone who has suffered as a result of racial discrimination.

    Having a "massive" rally wouldn't seem like good strategy at this point. There are likely concerned folks who help animals who are also supporters of the NAACP. How do they feel about this? If he didn't encounter some difficulties as a result of his past from animal rights groups, I'd be surprised. It would not surprise me if the rally fizzles to some degree and I would hpe that folks could get back to the buisness of football. I do hope that Vick gets it together and at lest tries to mitigate some of the damage done.

    I think it's safe to say that none of these NAACP types would want Vick living next to them if his last name were "Smith."

    hahaha. Matt Mosley said that the NAACP MARCH was actually just 12 people at a table with some signs. Way to go, NAACP.
