The day has arrived folks!! Y’all know how I feel about dogs. You could get rid of every single one of them from Lassie to the Taco Bell chihuahua. I don’t give a DAMN I hate them needy ass bitches!! All this ri’ chea was pretty despicable, even in MY eyes. But homeboy did his time, so I won’t be out there picketing w/the wack jobs. Hopefully he sees the NFL again.Suspended NFL star Michael Vick’s federal dogfighting sentence ended Monday, freeing him to lobby for a return to the field.

Vick’s attorney Lawrence Woodward told The Associated Press outside Vick’s suburban Virginia home that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback had been released from federal custody as scheduled. That means Vick no longer has to wear the electronic monitor he’s had while under home confinement for the last two months of his 23-month sentence.

Freedom will allow Vick to step up his efforts to resume his pro football career. Vick hopes to soon meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who has said he would review Vick’s status after Vick completed his sentence.

Goodell has said he wants to sit down with Vick, but it’s unclear when that face-to-face meeting will take place.

“The review of his status is ongoing, but we are providing no other details at this time,” league spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday.

If Vick is able to return to the NFL, it won’t be with Atlanta. The Falcons released Vick in June.

Under the federal truth-in-sentencing law, Vick had to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence. He served the first 18 months in the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., before being transferred to home confinement in May.

While on home confinement, Vick — once the NFL’s highest-paid player — worked a $10-an-hour construction job for a few weeks. He switched jobs last month, assisting in children’s health and fitness programs at the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Vick will remain on probation for three years. He also is under a three-year suspended sentence for a state dogfighting conviction. [SOURCE]
