On this edition of The Versus Podcast, we’re joined by Justin Tinsley of ESPN’s The Undefeated as we discuss the weird obsession that fans have with seeing athletes like Michael Vick punished past the point of the time they served behind bars. Once the time is served, why were so many Steelers fans adamant about not wanting Vick, yet when the Oakland Raiders had the chance to acquire Aldon Smith, their fans were up in arms celebrating? Is it because it’s all about what value they bring to the team? We discuss.
