I saw an interview with Michael Vick around the time this story broke. I tried to see some remorse or actual sign that he truly was sorry for what he had done. Too me, all his answers were dry and rehearsed. He talked about the work he was now doing with the Humane Society, but I just could not feel any passion in his voice or demeanor. He kept blaming everything on the culture that he grew up in and dog fighting was a part of that. I just don't see how anyone who cares about animals can intentionally inflict pain on them and think that it is ok.
I do believe in second chances, but in this case, I don't believe that Vick is sincere. He knows that if he wants to play football and make money, he needs to makes us all believe that he is sorry and reformed.
If he is sincere, I hope he puts his money where his mouth is and uses some of those big bucks to help out the animal shelters.
