Roger Staubach has stated in interviews the most strenuous thing he did in 'Nam was play touch football. His biggest challenge, other than procurement and shipping ammunition and supplies to Marine bases in South Vietnam, was boredom.

Agree he was more isolated than today's soldiers, but when people bring up Staubach's war record, it's almost assumed he was catching bullets.
Not dissing him, just saying.

He did have several close friends and classmates killed during the War.

I hear what you're saying. Thing is if you're in country your in harms way, no matter how Roger wants to spin it, that is why they get combat pay.

Straw man. Vick didn't accidentally kill all of those dogs, and Stallworth didn't kill that guy on purpose.
People who think killing dogs is unforgivable, yet make excuses for people who DRIVE DRUNK and kill PEOPLE should be subjected to immediate capital punishment, no trial or jury, just to prevent them from spreading their seed on and making the world a more intelligent place.

Well if Vick wins it, I can just see Roger Goodell taking credit for it. It'd be a PR to show that he turned Vick's life around.....then great PR follows as the league enters lockout.

He got to practice for a year, whoopty ******* doo, the fact that he played as well as he did so quickly is ridiculous.
Except that I have, not that it has any relevance to subject at hand.

And I'm sure because you played high school football it's comparable to what practice is like at an NFL level. Training camp and practice holds huge value in all professional sports, and it's how most coaches decide if a player is ready or not.

It's more than just practice too. Vick had plenty of time to run, lift weights, read the playbook, and prepare himself for the NFL. Not to mention he decided to stop being lazy and actually find some work ethic by his own admission. My guess is his new found work ethic had more to do with his success than anything else.

I'm not saying what he's done isn't very impressive, but compared to somebody coming off a serious injury who has to not only battle time off from the injury but the pain, setbacks, and limitations that come from an injury are just as difficult, if not more so than not playing football for 18 months.

This is pretty awful too. First, I imagine the Hitler comparison was at least somewhat tongue in cheek. Second, your assessment of Hitler and Vick are pretty off base. Hitler had a purpose (albeit unconscionable) in killing, it's a big misguided to suggest that he did it for the fun. Vick also had a purpose; obviously he enjoyed the spectacle of dog-fighting while running a business. So, like Hitler, you certainly can't take "fun" out of the equation entirely, it's a little too charitable.
