Michael Vick of dogfighting infamy was visited in the penitentiary by retired Colts coach Tony Dungy. Vick will be on probation at the end of this month but may look forward to being reinstated to professional football only if he “show(s) genuine remorse and demonstrate(s) he has changed.”

What in the world are these people (coaches) thinking? Oh, I forgot – ticket sales and winning. How did the ticket sales and winning in the fighting ring help the dogs that Vick and his crew sacrificed in the name of sport?
