Vick is a dog lover, apparently.

Vick At Mercy Of The Pack?
post #2 of 12
I seen the comment about him being a dog lover last week, it made even more people send their Vick jerseys to local shelters to be used to muck out dog pens

This article was just insane. It's only been up for an hour and already over 140 comments. The reporter actually said `surely he has suffered enough'.

Yeah, SURE he has.

Yeah there are a lot of crazy articles about him out there, defending his actions that 'they are only dogs', 'it is just a sport' etc, its sickening

Moreso than the idiot who wrote that column, apparently. That man is exactly the jock-testosterone-driven idiot who gives all sports fan and athletes a bad name. As if we needed to look any further than Vick himself.

this guy actually gets paid to write articles for a news source?? What a moron! this is the best comment:
It's a likely bet that Vick loves his dogs the way trainers love their fighters. He likely puts them down, by whatever brutal means, for the same unfortunate reasons that rodeos kill passive bulls and trainers shoot injured horses.
um, yeah, sure, he fights the dogs to their death and brutally puts them down because he loves them?? I think I'm going to be sick

Not only are reporters excusing him, but now some celebrities are too! Check this out:

“It’s a cultural thing, I think. Most brothers didn’t know that, you know. I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time. I didn’t know that was Fed time. So, Mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star. I know that cruelty to animals is bad, but sometimes people shoot people and kill people and don’t get time.†- Jamie Foxx, lending his opinion to the ongoing Michael Vick dogfighting scandal. (Found in http://dlisted.com/node/14206)

Is he saying that its ok to fight dogs if you are African American? Somehow I don't think many would agree that this is a common cultural practice.

ESPN showed a timeline of things they've aired. One was a "Things you don't know about Vick" and he said he was an animal lover....couldn't help but notice the dog he was petting was a pit bull. Although he must have gotten a non-fighting one to look good on camera with....

I guess that fact remains, that even though there are so many idiots out there excusing and justifying this, he is still going to jail, he is still going to be punished, he is still losing his career over it. So, even though there's idiots out there who still support him, in this instance - for ONCE - what's good and right has come out on top.

I really want to believe that Foxx was being facetious and that comment was taken out of context
post #11 of 12
Wow, I don't think I've ever read an article that was a bigger load of in my life!

I still maintain, an eye for an eye. Let's put Vick in the dogfighting ring & when he looses, "put him down, by whatever brutal means, for the same unfortunate reasons that rodeos kill passive bulls and trainers shoot injured horses."

So....now we need a handbook to teach an adult how to act or are these athletes and stars just dumb? What other excuse can they think of next
