Did Michael Vick serve a fair sentence for his crimes?

I saw a picture of Michael Vick on the Yahoo home page today and it made me mad and sad at the same time. I realize that he's served his punishment but I can't help but wonder if it was a fair sentence. The fact that the NFL has reinstated him irritates me. On the one hand he served his time and should be allowed to work in his chosen profession. On the other hand, what he did surely can't be condoned by the NFL and I wouldn't want him working for me with that kind of background. What do you think?

I think the NFL is caught in a hard place. The court has already ruled on his crime and punished him. If they further punish him they would be taking the law in to their own hands so to speak. I think Michael does show remorse and personally I don't have a problem with him playing ball again. He's not that good anyways and will be out of the league soon enough. What he does after that is anybody's guess. I will certainly not be hiring him.
