I'm actually planning to buy a new pair of Nike Air Force Ones after this announcement.

Do all the boycotting and protesting you want but this has been going on for nearly two years and none of those dogs have come back to life have they?

If you're boycotting, don't just stop buying Nike, tell them why you're not buying. They need to know why people have stopped buying their products.

I saw this thread maybe 5 minutes after it came on the board. It had 3 views at that time. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to the OP as I'm 95% sure they have not posted on football before.

People have until the end of the day to vent. Then it gets closed. Two years ago there were several threads on Vick on a couple forums that eventually run their course over the 2009 season. Last year it was hundreds, I take that back, thousands of posts over different forums; Football, Sports, Pets, Great Debates, P/OC, Philadelphia, Georgia, Atlanta. And even though this thread zeroes in on Vick's association with Nike it won't take much time for people to go off topic and eventually start MFing each other because of differing views. I won't allow that.

A few weeks later (if we have an NFL season) I'm going to add some items on one of the "stickies". I haven't decided yet if I do like I did last year to "sticky" hot button subjects such as Vick and let people vent.

Thread is open until midnight. If there is a TOS violation it will close sooner.

This is exactly why you are no better than the person you are condemning, by wishing ill will. Get off your high horse and do something else productive with your time. Nike will do just fine and maybe even better. I can assure you that their bottom line will not be impacted

The members of that hate page on facebook all seem like angry white woman who appear to have this strong attachment with dogs. I dont know, maybe they are not getting love from men, or there is some other motivating factor that is driving them to just hate. In any case most people do not feel the same way you do, and that is the best thing about America. If a person paid his debt to society he can go out and make a living for himself. America is a place for second chances and you, not I, and definitely not you have the right to judge anyone.

Can we please stop with the "Kill Mike Vick" stuff?

What he did was wrong, but the way I feel about it, he didn't plan a hijacking of a plane to blow up the World Trade Center.

Please stop with that, ok?

So many athletes that worthy......who won't create as much buzz and attention as Mike Vick. Nike is a business and if you wanted to get attention for your product a very controverisal person would be the one you would want. Nike's ultimate goal is profit and Vick is likely to create plenty for them.

He did his time and changed his lifestyle. Why not give him another chance?

What is it with you people?!

I don't think everyone is convinced he "changed his lifestyle." I think most of us who think that, myself included, think he "changed his lifestyle" in front of the camera, to save face, to get endorsements. I believe if he hadn't been caught when he did, he'd still be doing this, and would continue until caught, if ever. I personally won't be surprised if he gets caught again some day doing the same thing.

I believe he had no choice other than to look like he changed to get the other side of the issue off his back.

Too bad.
