3. Michael Vick's 'Bad News Kennel'

One of the few sports controversies that may actually have a somewhat decent ending. 

Throughout the early-to-mid 2000¿s, no player in the NFL was more electric then Vick who would win games just as often with his feet, as with his arm.  

Vick¿s good times however would come crashing down in 2007 as he would be indicted and convicted of running a dog fighting operation that had been in existence since 2001.  

Electrocution, drowning and smashing the animals repeatedly on the ground were among the inconceivably cruel things Vick and his associates did to losing dogs.

Since serving a one-and-a-half year sentence that started on December 10, 2007 and ended on July 20, 2009, Vick has seemingly changed his life around. 

He is back in the NFL, playing quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. More importantly, Vick he has not only apologized for dog fighter, but he is now speaking against it and working with groups like PETA and the Humane Society in support of federal legislation to crack down on animal fighting.
