Few jailed athletes, even convicted rapists and murderers, faced the heat that has burned Michael Vick since 2007. That year, of course, he pled guilty to federal felony charges stemming from the dog fighting ring he funded at his Virginia home, and promptly served 21 months in prison, as well as two months house arrest. For the harrowing crimes he oversaw against dogs, including their deaths by electrocution and drowning, Vick paid dearly, and not simply in terms of nearly two years behind bars. The then Atlanta Falcons' pro contract was voided, his endorsement deals severed and the resulting losses pushed the once wealthy quarterback into personal bankruptcy. Vick is back in the NFL, even winning the league's Comeback Player of the Year award in 2010, though he is just now beginning to wash himself of the stink brought by his reprehensible criminal actions.
