Thread Name: BS: Michael Vick, dog-fighter, is an Eagle
Subject: RE: BS: Michael Vick, dog-fighter, is an Eagle
I just finished watching Michael Vick on "60 Minutes" and during the inerview he mentioned about 7 things he was sorry for having done... One of the seven was the crime... The other six had to do with the aggrivation that being caught has caused him...

His eyes darted back and forth during questions about animal cruelty...

Okay, I'll be the first admit that alot of folks belong to a culture where this kinda of behavior/entertainment is okay... We have it right here in Page Country, Va. with cockfighting... It still goes on here inspite of the former sheriif being busted for allowing it to occur...

Yeah, Vick is who he is and people don't really change that much... They just get more so... I don't know what is in Michael Vick's heart but from watching his facial expressions and listening to his words during the interview I doubt very much if he really gets it...

But that is his problem... The fact that he can play football shouldn't be seen as the only thing on the planet he could do to make a living so I don't buy the argument that he should be allowed to "make a living"... There are millions of other folks who get up at 5 ion the orning, catch a bus and do what they have to do for very little money... He should have had to do a little of that, too, before being considered for the big money... Had he been a backup linebacker, the NFL would treat this very different...

I am disgusted by Vick and I am disgusted by a culture that values a guy who can throw a friggin' ball over it's moral fabric...

The End
