Yes, the punishment was perfect for the crime.
No, the punishment was too much for the crime.
No, the punishment was too little for the crime.
People personally attacking Vick should really relax...while I can understand the frustration and source of anger, Vick isn't 100% responsible for his overall actions (despite it being his own decisions). Vick was raised around dog fighting and around a culture of people who pushed the belief that dog fighting was ok and not some cruel sport. When you're raised around that influence, there is a strong chance you're going to keep it. That's why it is always inspiring or somewhat of a shock when a successful person comes from a terrible childhood situation...like a Doctor being born and raised in Compton. There is more likelihood he'd die from a gun shot or join a gang than he would read a book and finish school. Vick was in the same situation as that, except instead of gang violence being acceptable, dog fighting was...and he fell "victim" to that influence.
Obviously that is no excuse, but hopefully you get what I mean.

Vick did a very $#@!ty thing but he served his punishment for it. I do believe that whole ordeal was about more than the dogs though. Its just that it was the only thing they could make stick. I think something else turned them on to him and they stumbled upon that.
Michael "Slick" Vick seems to be taking it well since his release from prison, so I assume that the time that he did in prison was bad enough. One thing many people jumped to conclusions about was what Vick was charged with, which was bankrolling a dogfighting ring, not fighting dogs, if he was convicted of fighting dogs he would have had a minumum of 5 years. He got cut from his team lost endorsements, shoes, everything he had, served his time in prison yet he was still protested and booed when he came from the locker room for Philly the first time. Just because he was in the limelight and committed a crime he deserved to die, have his testicles shot off, etc.? Really? People in the limelight have been convicted of far worse things and got off with a slap on the wrist and are still praised as deity to this day. Ben Rapelisberger raped not one, but two women before he had the NFL and his team take notice...and he still plays for his team. Hell Ray Lewis killed a guy then came back and led his team to a Super Bowl victory in the same season and still played for his team. Vick is a changed man. There was an app (game)on the Google Play Store (formerly Android Market) called Michael Vick Dogfighting that Vick stepped in to have Google remove it. He lost out on his number two Madden cover to that injury-faking $#@! Peyton Hillis (sour Browns fan here lol). He recently got married. My point is that he did his time in a correctional facility so there's no need to continue to hate on him. Star athletes are human too.

Just because he served what a judge and jury decided he serve doesn't mean that I have to agree with his sentence.

I am pretty sure Dante Stallworth admitted he was drunk. Pretty hard to deny it anyways. And yes I know it has nothing to do with Vicks case. There is NOTHING that can be said about other crimes that are related to Vicks case. Just opinions as to why Vick was sentences too harshly.
Vick has an autobiography being published September 4th of this year titled "Finally Free."
