Michael Dwayne Vick is a former American football quarterback who played 13 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles. 

In August 2007, hours after Vick pleaded guilty to federal charges in the Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting investigation, the NFL suspended him indefinitely without pay for violating its player conduct policy. Vick's NFL career came to a halt in 2007 after he pleaded guilty for his involvement in a dog fighting ring and spent 21 months in federal prison. His arrest and subsequent conviction garnered Vick notoriety with the general public, which lasted throughout the rest of his career. He was released by the Falcons shortly before leaving prison.

Michael Vick already paid his debt back to society and haven't broken the law since the dog fights. He should be allowed to move on with his life the same way police officers who shoot unarmed black men on video are allowed to continue to living their lives. Not allowing Michael Vick to be a captain for the pro bowl is giving him a life sentence and I don't think that's fair. No human life was harmed, he should be forgiving from this.
