Default Dungy meets with Vick in Prison

Ok, this isn't about Michael Vick, but of how strong a person Tony Dungy is ... to lose a son to suicide and for him to go on and be a mentor for other young men must be tough ... although i didn't really like the Colts, I always like Dungy ... I guess his faith in God has been his strength for doing stuff like this ..........

Dungy meets with Vick in prison
Michael Vick and Tony Dungy met Tuesday at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., where the former star quarterback is imprisoned.
"It was a private meeting between Mike and coach Dungy and a positive meeting," said Vick's agent, Joel Segal.

Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for bankrolling a dogfighting conspiracy. He is to be transferred May 21 to home confinement in Hampton, Va. Vick is to stay in Hampton through July 31. He'll work a $10-an-hour construction job as part of his probation.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has said Vick must show genuine remorse and demonstrate he has changed if he is to have a chance at reinstatement.

Dungy retired as the Colts' coach in January, two years after leading Indianapolis to a Super Bowl title. He has long been involved in prison ministries.

"Where my heart is, is really with our young men right now," Dungy said when he retired. "We have so many guys that didn't grow up like me, didn't have their dad there and that's something I'm very, very interested in."

Dungy is the man. I've always had a ton of respect for him.

I know, but every time Dungy gets mentioned I just can't help but think of this interview. I remember when it first aired during last season's playoffs and me and my buddies were like "WTF did he just say?!"

I too like Tony Dungy, he is a strong man of faith and isnt afraid to show it!

My family are huge Colts fans!!!
Met Tony at the Colts training camp.....he took us right up to Peyton Manning and Adam Vinateri (however you spell his last name)...

Dungy is a great guy with a big heart!!!

Someone will pick Vick's contract up after they reinstate him because we all know they will.

Somebody will pick him up, but it will likely be for the league minimum, and I doubt he is a starter. I think Vick has basically set the standard for "damaged goods" in the modern-era of professional sports. He was never that great of a quarterback, so running back may be a decent option for him to consider because of his speed, but if his conditioning is not up to par he could end up getting injured.
