George Dohrmann: Michael Vick shouldn’t be allowed to play


Michael Vick, fresh off a 23-month federal prison sentence for financing and participating in the dog-fighting operation known as Bad Newz Kennels, should be banned from the NFL for life.

I say that even though the prevailing opinion among my colleagues at Sports Illustrated and other national voices, like William C. Rhoden of The New York Times, is Vick should be back in the league this season. They have written with conviction that when commissioner Roger Goodell reviews the matter, he should allow Vick’s return. Rhoden wrote that Vick earned a second chance “by virtue of his incarceration,” and’sPeter King wrote: “I think there is no good reason why Michael Vick … should not be reinstated to play in the NFL this fall. None.”
