Will NFL viewers stomach Michael Vick as a Fox Sports analyst? – Chicago Tribune

Fox Sports hiring Michael Vick as an NFL analyst isn’t the worst idea in the world. Not with the potential to hire O.J. Simpson at midseason.

Simpson at least would bring network TV experience along with his baggage. Vick just brings the baggage.

This isn’t so much to rail against Fox for hiring Vick, whose NFL playing career was interrupted by 18 months in prison for his role in a brutal, abusive dogfighting ring he is unlikely ever to completely put behind him in the eyes of many.

If “Fox NFL Kickoff” viewers and those who stumble across his appearances on cable’s FS1 are sickened by the memory of what Vick went to prison for, the stupidity of Fox’s decision will be readily apparent.
