You may be right. but as I've said we really don't know and perhaps I'm being some what overly optimistic as to Vick's conduct outside of dog fighting.
But the Bull fighting thing IMO opinion is right on. It's the same thing, an Animal gets killed for sport just like with dog fighting. the only difference is Bull fighting is legal in Spain as Cock fighting is legal in Puerto Rico, but dog fighting is Illegal in the USA. In all cases animals are exploited and killed.
Animals are exploited in nearly anything they're involved in for entertainment purposes. The circus, the Zoo, roadside animal attractions, tv and movies all exploit animals to one degree or another.
Also, I was referring to cock fighting in the U.S. not in Spain or South America. I just don't see the level of barbarism in Bull fighting that I see in dog fighting, that's not to say I agree with Bull fighting.
Dog fighting is as barbaric an endeavor as I've ever seen, heard or read about. I never knew it was as bad as it is or as widespread as it is. The things I've read recently are horrific. Did you know that some of the dogs they use to train the dogs are stolen from people's homes and yards? That's right, these thugs steal people's pets to be used as prey for their dogs.
Vick played it smart by agreeing to a plea, if the general public actually heard first hand testimony of the things Vick did to those dogs then he'd never work again. He'd be ostracized forever.
The only way Goodell will ban Vick for life is if the gambling aspect of dog fighting is proven. If they get Vick on gambling Goodell will have his means of banning Vick, if not then Vick will eventually be reinstated.
