SICK “QUARTERBACK” VICK
Michael Vick had a great quarterback career. Unfortunately he steered in the wrong direction and got caught in an illegal and brutal arena of pit bull dogfighting. The writing was on the wall that it would be Vick’s downfall.
It was in summer of 2007 that the Atlanta Falcons suspended Michael Vick after he admittedly stashed the cash from a dog-fighting ring held in the backyard of his Virginia property where blood stains were found around the grounds.
The first thing that comes to mind is anyone who abuses or kills an animal must be mentally ill. So what kind of a guy is Michael? He’s a powerful towering individual who has plenty of money and fame. Then why did he get involved in this dog-fighting game? I believe Vick thought he could get away with it. He certainly wasn’t making a lot of money from dog fighting. In the end, Vick’s dishonesty cost him everything.
Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months, spending approximately 19 months in federal prison with a probation obligation to speak or teach “at-risk” kids around the country on animal cruelty and brutality. Is this enough of a penalty for a dog’s suffering? What about the plight of other dogs that were killed because they failed to fight? Dogs have a right to live their life. They’re man’s best friend to the end.
Dogs barked, growled and snarled. If animals could only talk or squawk they would tell their tales of sheer hell.
Of course Michael Vick could be reinstated into the NFL after serving prison time if he showed remorse.
On August 13, 2009 the Philadelphia Eagles spread their wings. Michael Vick was picked as a home team player with a one-year contract because of his great quarterback tricks, but can he lick the shame over the dogs that were killed and maimed? It’s just insane to think that “Sick Vick” has “learned a lesson” even after his confession.
Well, people make mistakes and should be forgiven. Vick served his time in a federal prison. I’m not going into racism or that Vick did not know any better because of his upbringing. These poor doggies were treated inhumanely. Let’s not compare the killing of pigs and other poultry to house pets.
This all boils down to if the youth of this country is served by the words of Michael Vick, then we should not continue to keep beating up this tragedy with a wooden stick.
I am not here to bitch about Vick, only stating some of the facts on his cruel inhumane treatment of animals who were abused and killed. The disgrace and shame may overpower Vick’s fame. This is what Michael Vick will have to live with.
And they say, “Crime Does Not Pay.” I totally disagree. See Michael Vick’s upcoming BET reality show, “The Michael Vick Project.” Hey, this guy is gonna roll in dough. Whataya know the show did not do that well. It opened on February 2nd with over a million viewers and then fell to over 700,000 for the season finale. Vick said he turned down a second season on BET as it wasn’t that fascinating.
There’s a new twist to Michael Vick’s animal cruelty. Vick’s teammates applaud him for talking to kids about his mistakes with a special “Ed Block Courage Award” which PETA and protesters deplore. It’s definitely not appropriate to award Vick such an achievement.
NUDE PICS OF VICK
Nude pics of Michael Vick? Playgirl wants Vick to strip. The magazine will be profiting from Vick’s nudity while PETA gets a million dollar donation toward animal cruelty. We’ll have to wait and see if Vick strips.
On June 25, 2010 Virginia Beach police investigate a shooting one block from a nightclub where Michael Vick celebrated his “30th” birthday party. Prosecutors want to file charges, but victim is not cooperating. Vick who is still on probation has to stick to the rules after serving federal prison time for animal cruelty.
The Philadelphia Eagles who have commented on the shooting incident say it is definitely not true that they might be releasing Vick from his contract, but are waiting for a conclusion of the investigation. Now it seems that Vick was involved in some type of confrontation, but left before the shooting at his birthday party. Vick’s co-defendant was shot at the party and convicted of dog fighting. NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell who plans to meet with the quarterback voiced his opinion that Vick should be more careful in making the right choices.
This time the deck is not stacked against Vick as he’s been picked for the starting quarterback. 30-year-old Michael Vick shows the Philadelphia Eagles that he can lead their team to victory.

NO MORE SHIT FROM VICK
No more shit from Vick. It looks like his fans have forgiven him. Man, he’s working as hard as he can. Michael Vick turned things around with his two feet on the ground. Since leaving prison, he’s determined to win.
Now Vick would like to get a dog for a pet. Animal rights group PETA is very upset. They want him banned from owning a dog for life especially after his dog fighting. Under probation conditions Michael Vick will be allowed to buy, own or sell dogs in “2012″ as long as the quarterback proves he followed their rules. President Obama does not want to see Vick banned. Give him a second chance. Tucker Carlson animal-rights activist and conservative commentator for Fox News disagrees with Obama’s reasoning. Tucker believes Sick Vick should have been executed for causing dogs pain and suffering.
