NAACP Leader Says Vick Should Be Allowed to Return to NFL In Future
The head of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP is urging the NFL to allow Falcons quarterback Michael Vick to play in the league again after he serves his sentence for pleading guilty in his dogfighting case.
"As a society, we should aid in his rehabilitation and welcome a new Michael Vick back into the community without a permanent loss of his career in football," said chapter president R.L. White, according to the Associated Press. "We further ask the NFL, Falcons and the sponsors not to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to fans all over this country."
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is considering what disciplinary action the league will take against Vick, whose lawyers announced Monday that he'd agreed to plead guilty to federal dogfighting charges.
