08:03 AM ET 11.08 | With the help of his success in returning to the field, Michael Vick has slowly been rebuilding his reputation, endorsement by endorsement, public reparation by public reparation, and gentlemanly appearance by gentlemanly appearance. Is [Vick] back in the public's good graces? ... [Not] so fast. Vick has clearly made some public reparations over the past two years with his strong play on the field and gentlemanly behavior off of it. But these things have a way of taking time. The latest public surveys from Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research, a tracker of public perceptions of athletes and other celebrities, show that Vick still stands as the least liked player in the NFL.

He just signed a $100 million dollar contract. I don't think he cares.

Not every city is as dumb as Dallas to give him a key to the city.

Some things you just don't get over. Vic is one of them.

Sup Chico, lose a bet?

Maybe if he wasn't a criminal, had a brother who was a criminal, hung around with criminals, had a sense of entitlement, made millions of dollars but expected everyone and every place to give him more, he would be even more popular and loved than he is now. Personally, I don't care what anybody thinks of him. It's none of my business. I judge him as a football player in the NFL. He's done well since he got out of prison. Hope he stays out. I feel the same way about Plaxico Burris.

Not condoning what he did but Dante Stallworth killed a man. Killed him. He didnt get killed by protest groups he only spent a few months in jail and stroked a check to the victims family for a few million. Wheres the overwhelming outrage about that?

Cortland calmed down some since Andre Johnson whipped his **** on national television.

yep the punishment didn't fit the crime if you compare Stallworths case to Vicks case ..... I guess our juriditial system is going to the dogs
