Tell them your name and state, and inform them that you will not be purchasing Nike products, nor will you invest in the company as a shareholder, until they drop Michael Vick as a sponsored athlete.


You can also e-mail them. Go to Nike.com
Click on Customer Service at the bottom of that page. Then go to Contact Us. Go to the bottom to Nike USA Consumer Services.
Click on Email us.
In the first drop down box click on Nike - The Company.
Then click on other in the next drop down box.
Put Michael Vick as the subject and type your e-mail.
We have called Nike as have all of our friends ----
they need to remove him
all companies need to look at their sponsored athletes and clean house -- the American people are getting pushed to their limit and we need to not support those companies that are advocates of this behaviour...
SO Kudos to NJKATE - for providing the information

Agree!!! Tired of these grossly over paid no talent buffoons.
It's a no wonder some kids are the way they are today....no more heros to look up to....

Also tired of paying high prices for things like sneakers so companies can afford to pay idiots like Vick huge salaries cause we know the little Viet Namese lady making those nikes is being paid peanuts

These beautiful dogs never got a trial.
I read about this a while back and at that time gave him the benefit of the doubt but I was afraid this was going to happen. I just don't understand how a sucessful athlete with adoring fans making a lot of money has to stoop so low to even be involved in this dispicable behavior.
What happened to morals clauses in contracts?

Remeber NIKE had on an add last year with a Pitt and Rott in a ring.......underlying message was obvious. NIKE does not give a rat's ass, because they see dogfighters as part of their customers. The ad was absolutely appauling, and after huge protests from pittie people, they pulled the ad.

This counrty is upside frikin down. In the pit for Vick I say-POS.

Finally saw it on the news.

I may be a Steelers fan, but that, in no way, gets between me and my moral upbringing and would definatly NOT taint my view, should someone on that team do something I truly despise, from getting the book thrown at them.

If something isn't done to Vick and everyone involved.....

I beleive it was Ghandi that said, "You can tell a lot about a country by the way it treats its animals".

It is so sad - not only for animal lovers - but for humans themselves - that this is encouraged - that it is found to be entertainment
these pro ball players are supposed to be examples to the youth today - BUT there always seems to be one"bad apple" in the mix - that thinks they are bigger and better than the almighty up above....
send them all to jail and tear up his career.......


I completely agree!!! What a waste...And to claim that he had no idea!!! PLEASE!!!! GMAB!!

I sent them an email, speaking on behalf of my family.
Here's hoping nagging and complaining and pitching a fit will actually produce something positive this time
