As I mentioned before people are all hyped over dogs but what about fish? What about chickens?
Your so right, my pet lobster Fred and I enjoy playing catch in the back yard all the time.

You gotta remember man it's the south we are talking here. A lot of these folks didn't like the reality of Michael Vick being quarterback even before this crap jumped off so any sort of excuse they can find to throw him under the bus is good for the Vick detractors. It just so happens that Vick shot himself in the foot with his stupidity.

Just don't ask them to feign any outrage over harm & abuse to human beings who are not like themselves.

What a heroic gesture indeed. Vick "showed support" for his alma mater after some nut killed a bunch of kids. That sure showed real character on Vick's part, that he would take such a controversial position....LOL

Just shows how us whiteys are so racist, forgetting as we did his magnaminous gesture.

What did Vick DO after the V-Tech strategy? Did he write a check? Did he help lighten the mood with some kind of campus event. Or did he just repeat words as typed up by his publicist?

Sorry, but this "modern American" refuses to understand, and is absolutely repulsed that we have people in society that feel this way.

What other violent behavior do you have NO problem with?
What?

I disagree. My grandsons idolized Vick and had Vick jerseys and Vick posters on their walls. We followed his career on television and at the Dome and the sports pages and were enthusiastic fans.

Vick was in no way a victim and he wasn't "thrown under the bus" by anyone other than himself. He had the world by the tail. His imprisonment was strictly the result of his own personal conduct.
