    When the Giants signed Burress to a five-year deal in September worth a maximum of $35 million, they had a right to expect at least three more productive seasons. Now, if Burress winds up in jail, the next pass he catches might be from Michael Vick after a play-action fake to O.J. Simpson.

    That was great. Let's make fun of someone who had his livlihood and freedom stripped away. When you break unjust laws, should we blame you or the coercive society who creates those laws? How about instead of the 10 millionth joke about Vick, a few more people write what needs to be said: dogs are property. Just because they are fluffy and have good personality doesn't mean that Vick should go to jail and the farmer down the road who slaughters pigs should be praised as the great American farmer.

    Any person who has ever cracked a joke on Vick's behalf should be ashamed of himself.

    Uh, stripped away? By his own doing.

    I love dogs at the same time. I think Vick has been exploited in many ways and this sentence he's serving is making him an example.
    Once he's through with his sentence, I say let the man enjoy his life.

    I agree, partially. Jail sucks and he doesn't deserve all the time he got, unless he was involved in more nefarious undertakings then has been made public, which is doutful.

    While he's being an example because of who he is, he got into the trouble he's in for the same reason.
  12. I'm as bleeding a heart as you'll find around here but this thread has taken a turn into the surreal. The guy committed federal crimes and lied about it. Now, it's somehow unfair to crack jokes about it? Holy hell, he's not a political prisoner.
