A large majority of the team’s faithful fan base are extremely upset over this dog-killing quarterback being on the Jets roster. This past spring, Vick inked a one-year 5 million dollar deal with the organization signing as a free-agent after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles. As reported by the press he will compete with Geno Smith for the starting signal-caller job.

Heading into training camp this summer the Jets’ look to improve last seasons campaign of 8-8 after missing the playoffs for the third consecutive year in 2013. Jets owner has explained to the press that his team must improve in 2014 because 8-8 just is not good enough.

Fans in the Big Apple who are loyal to Gang Green are angry over Vick being on the team’s roster. Some long time faithful fans have commented on the Jets Fan Page and Facebook that they will not support or follow the team as long as Vick’s a member of their team. Some fans have even turned their season-tickets back in to the orgaination in protest of Vick being part of the 2014 squad.
.
It seems the Jets missed the memo on Vick back in 2007 issued by the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons dropped Vick like a bad disease off their roster after  a court  convicted him on federal charges of financing a dog-fighting ring on the property of his Virginia home.
Even if he is sorry about what he did I don’t think they should let him back in the league . He had plenty of money, and what he did was just cruel. Sure, he can have a second chance at life or what he wants to do, but the NFL no. These are people who we look up to and although we all make mistakes, not everything is fixable with “I’m sorry, and I’ve learned my lesson.” He paid only part of what all those animals paid. A life is a life no matter what, and those dogs felt great pain. Plus it’s not worth it for the NFL to take him back. Too much negative publicity around him and his age is not going down.

New York signed Vick  this spring, however a petition is circulating attempting to prevent him from taking part in Jets training campus of SUNY Cortland. This petition has over 26,000 signatures (and counting) on the petition to keep Vick off the college campus because of his dog-fighting past.

“I love SUNNY Cortland, and cannot abide welcoming this sociopath onto our campus with open arms,” The Change.org petition read (WARNING: There’s a photo of a mutilated dog on the site). “We need to stand by what is right as a university by barring him from the grounds. I don’t want him anywhere near my beloved college or community. We MUST send the message that we won’t be party to the torture of animals by conveniently forgetting what he has done. If we welcome Vick onto our campus, we are complicit in his crimes.”

It’s addressed to Erik J. Bitterbaum, Cortland’s president, with the goal set at 35,000 signatures. It was discovered by various sites including FoxSports.com after being posted.

The Jets need to go back to the drawing broad on this player decision. This QB is poison to his current team and the league itself. Vick’s career is   over as he should have gotten banned for life for his actions and role in the dog-fighting attempt he was a big part of.

It sad to see the Jets sacrifice their fans for Vick, just to keep the team under a media microscope and focused on the organization. Maybe one day hopefully soon the organization will realize what a bad choice, signing Vick really is. Winning is important at the professional sports level for organizations and coaches but not at the cost of departing fans who promise to never follow your team again. Get a grip Jets and come back to reality and dump Vick while you still can.

The fans have spoken loud and clear without stuttering so be smart and listen up before the franchise looses all the loyal fans and the team is playing to empty stadiums. The message is crystal clear the fans dislike Vick and do not want him on the team.

  14. I for one continue to avoid seeing his smug face on TV. Shame on the NFL for allowing him back in. Athletes are role models for young people and he falls sadly short. He knowingly tortured, abused and killed animals for profit and would still be doing it if he had not been caught. No he should not be forgiven so easily. He has not paid nearly enough for his crime

  15. I can at least remember when the Jets were a workmanlike (if not necessarily always good) football team under Herm Edwards.
    Since then in the Ryan/Tannenbaum era there have been these big moves (Favre, Plaxico Burress, Tebow, and now Vick – not to mention Ryan’s antics themselves) to grab headlines more than win games. Which is unfortunate.

  16. I agree that Michael Vick should not be allowed to play. Isn’t there a morals clause or something? I disagree with the people who think this is a race issue. We are all God’s children and should behave as such. Killing helpless animals is not a nice thing to do. Let’s do to Michael Vick as he did to those dogs.
