Last night outside Villa, Sapp said Vick has paid "more than enough" for bankrolling a dogfighting ring, and calls his release "A beautiful thing."

Vick will serve his final two months of his federal sentence on house arrest in his Hampton, Va. home.

Leave Mike Alone - You are really something. Im against cruelty to animals and PETA, due to their practices. Im white and my child is just fine. I don't own a gun (but something tells me you do) and Im not on meth. You are ignorant and probably just someone who hates white people, hates animals but loves football. How much about PETA do you know other than what you cut and pasted into your message? How much do you know about what cruelty to animals or humans is? You sound real ignorant, good luck to him for having such a loyal fan, moron. Shows what his crowd is all about!

Shame on you    

Warren, your approval rating has just dropped into the bucket. You are such a likable guy, why in the world you aline yourself with Vick? Better to have said nothing than to sympathize so strongly with him.

Would you have given your life to save one of these dogs?

Only marry foreign women    

ABOUT the same time as Vick killed a couple of dogs Mary Winkler was convicted of murdering her husband. She got a few weeks in jail for shooting her husband in the back with a shoot gun. Later the government gave custody of the kids to her.

Man bad, women good, pets good.

I remember Winkler - the husband killer. She went on Oprah too.

Is Vick going on the Oprah show? Maybe he was victim of abuse because he killed dogs.

Vick needs to do the right thing now, if he wants to make millions playing football again, he needs to spend millions helping all abused animals and help the organizations that support these animals, that will be the only thing that shows the public he's being held accoutable for the abuse and cruelty he did to his own dogs.

Very well said Kris. If he is truly sorry, let him spend some of his blood money to help unfortunate animals. He is not sorry about the abuse. He is only sorry he got caught. I'm sure he got great pleasure in performing and watching the torture.

"ENOUGHALREADY leave vick alone" ...you are a piece of trash! A sorry piece of trash. Just because you post some long diatribe does NOT make your point creditable. LOSER!

What Michael Vick did had nothing to do with race, he is just POS! Sorry, but anyone who intentally harms animals for their own sick and twisted pleasure has NO business being allowed back in the NFL! There are plenty of talented athletes out there who haven't abused animals, let THEM play! I highly doubt Michael Vick is remorseful for what he did, just sorry he got caught! If he thought what he did was ok then, I find it hard to believe he would change his tune now.

I like Warren Sapp. He's an optimist. I never heard him disrespect anyone. He's a great guy.
