I was at the Eagles preseason game on Thursday when the news spread. It was weird, everyone started getting texts and it was like a wisper throughout the crowd. About 50/50 of “Holy shit we might win the Super Bowl!” and “Holy shit we have a dog killer on the team!”
I sell season tix, I’m interested to see how this effects my sales.
Yeah, damn those criminals who serve their judicialy decided upon time in prison then return to the common workforce from which they left upon being sent to serve their jail term. Nobody who has ever been to jail should be allowed to return to their general type of employment after getting out, nor should they get out. We should through them all into a pit and whoever claws their way out should get a bird-shot blast to the grill.
Icecycle, I see your point. He did serve his time, and unlike most convicts, who will be denied work once they disclose they’ve been convicted, he’s got a top job that’s been held warm for him the whole time.
However, as a teacher, I would never in a million fucking years be allowed back in a classroom after running such an operation as he did. (Same for the numerous other crimes sports stars commit…) And as a sports star, he carries way more influence than I do.
There is a major race division going on with in the reactions to this case, which really scares me because I live in a racially mixed , very poor neighborhood where pits are walked with chains around their necks and small dogs can’t be left outside unsupervised or they’ll be snapped up as bait for training. My students at school have dogs to fight in their families, and they’re highly attuned to who’s in prison and who’s getting out. Vick’s getting out to make millions more dollars and dogfighting is as prevalent as ever.
Yeah, I’ll accept his release, but not his return to a million-dollar career.
I agree with Paul and Listy on this one. He served his time, but the NFL and the Eagles should hold character above profit. He will never live this down, nor should he. He should be lucky to mop the floor at a 7-11.
Serving time doesn’t make a person less of a piece of shit, just means he got caught – just sayin.
The NFL is full of convicted felons and criminals who just haven’t actually been caught yet.
I don’t think the NFL should have banned him, his crimes were completely unrelated to the game.
I believe it was each individual team’s right to decide whether they wanted to employ him, and I’m disgusted that the Eagles chose to do so. I would have preferred to have him unofficially blackballed, but the Eagles franchise must have a lower moral compass than most.
Icecycle – At no point did I say I hate him because he is or was a criminal. Are you suggesting that just because he went to jail for a little while he is magically no longer a huge pile of shit? Great, he served his legal duty, but as a human being he hasn’t even come close. Of all the people to defend and get behind, Michael Vick? Really? Have you ever seen a photo of a dog after a dog fight? FUCK Michael Vick and any other piece of shit useless motherfucker like him. Yeah, and FUCK the Eagles while your at it. I hope he gets a career-ending injury on the first play of the first game.
while we’re on the subject of shit pieces, just saw literally 6 seconds of guy fieri’s show, he placed a hot oven pan on “his face”. he has a little thing to place hot shit on you know, and it’s his fucking face. his face.
I also think Vick is a douche bag. I think anyone whose greatest contribution is playing a game is a tool. These are all the people who should get paid nothing to do what they do. He won’t change, he will just be better at what he does. I simply find it odd that you select this particular criminal at this particualr time to add to the list. There is only one evident reason that he made at now. In reality any scum bag and any paid entertainer (synonyms?) should be on the list, not just when the are released from a prison sentence after comitting a crime of any kind and then returning to their asshat occupation.
I dunno Listy. Granted, he is a piece of shit. But, this is an opportunity to bring a constructive spotlight to this deplorable “hobby”. I read a great article that said since Vick’s arrest, dog fighting has gone deep underground. Fights are being held via webcams and in the back of semis to evade the cops. Vick is a monster, but I’m willing to give him a change to fix this mess. If he is genuinely remorseful of his actions (as he espouses) then perhaps he can make a difference in educating a certain segment of society on just how cruel, inhumane, and fucking sick dog fighting realyl is.
Munchies – Yes. I suppose I could write about other criminals who make me mad. That darn Hitler, he really is a douchebag!
Creature – It’s nice to see you back on the site by the way. I totally understand what you are saying but sadly I think the only thing he is remorseful about is getting caught. If he was to literally dedicate his life to ending animal cruelty I would support him, but I don’t think his conviction will stop a single dog fight. If you are the type of person who could participate in an activity like that, you are by definition too stupid to ever see the errors of your ways. Those people literally do not have the mental capacity necessary to see why it is profoundly wrong. Jesus himself could burst through the wall with two flame-throwers and doves flying out of his butt and these people would still not change their ways. They are sick, sadistic, ignorant, useless pieces of shit. I wish he could make a difference but he probably won’t.
Ha, have you seen the video of his pathetic apology. Sorry he got caught, indeed.
The apology made me dislike him even more than before.
I’m sure his new 2mil a year salary took some of the sting out of all the $$ he lost over this, and I’d bet my entire life earning potential that the $$ is the ONLY thing he’s actually sorry about. Fucking tool.
Prosectuing animal cruelty is the real problem. People like Vick are a dime a dozen on this planet. Hopefully his celebrity status and need for redemtion/ clear his conscience will make a tiny iota of difference. I doubt it, but what else is there to hope for? It’s all about Hope, right?
I am not surprised that we as a society allow this souless miscreant, (that’s piece of shit) to continue influencing our youth. I agree with whoever said we have a double standard in this country. Just because Vick is black, we think we need to tread a little lighter. When are we going to stop making excuses for black criminals? Slavery was 200 years ago, nobody alive today participated in it! Stop making excuses for blacks, especially blacks like Vic, who need to die! We as a society are all suffering because 200 years ago some rich white folks needed their cotton picked. Today, it’s like all whites owned slaves. Nope that’s not true. Only the very rich, like say Donald Trump could own slaves. A slave in 1830 would cost about $1500.00. That’s like $50000 today. And that’s just one slave. Also, I’m sorry that their ancestors suffered, but do the American blacks know how lucky they are that they are in this country at all? They need to thank their lucky stars that they were brought over here in the first place. Also, and blacks never say this, but it’s true. Who do you think was trading slaves in Africa? It was other blacks, baby. They were selling their enemies to whitey. They’d capture their neigbors and sell them to slave traders, yep it happened! And has any body been to Africa lately? It’s one fucked up continent and who’s running most of the countries where there’s no productivity and people are starving? It ain’t whitey. In fact, whenever the blacks succeed in kicking whitey out, they stop being a productive country and begin to starve. Rhodesia comes to mind, it’s Zimbabwe now and everybody’s starving. How about that. I say we send Vic and all the other blacks in this country who hate whitey, and I think it’s probably most of them, back to Africa where they belong! I wish I had a time machine, I’d go back and stop any whites from capturing slaves by any means necessary. So that all the blacks in this country wouldn’t exist! Then piece of shit, black fucks like Michael Vic wouldn’t exist. It’s because of selected breeding in slavery, you know, that fucks like Vic exist at all. His ancestors were bred to lift bails of cotton. They were bred dumb as dirt too. That’s why you can count all the black scientists in history using your fingers. So blacks, especially those like Vic, you’re all good as “spouts” because of whitey. How about that!
Like I said, I wish I had a time machine. Our quality of life today is directly influenced by the unfortunate greed of a minority of rich whites of the past.
This is all just to say, fuck you with a jack hammer, Michael Vic you piece of shit dog killer.
Well, the reality is that dog fighting is a part of “black culture” in America. No blacks, no dog fighting. No dead dogs. No blacks, no racial issue with blacks. But you should know, it is a racial issue. Vic got off easy because he’s black. Many blacks support Vic and don’t see what he did that was so bad.
Vic and folks like him, shouldn’t be in the US at all. Vic should be using those great running skills of his to avoid being eaten by lions or hienas or running around in the hot, unforgiving African bush with a loin cloth and a spear looking for grubs to eat and picking fat disease-infested flies off his ugly, stupid, black ass. Like I said, if I could, I’d go back to 1619, I’d sink that Dutch trader that landed off of Jamestown with the first African slaves, and I’d sink every other slave ship that tried to make to our shores too. I’d bring a fully armed US battleship and torpedo those motherfuckers right out of existence. The end.
Michael Vick got nothing more than a light slap on the hand for what he did. The greedy fucking NFL should have never let this piece of human garbage return. The philadelphia eagles SUCK! He will get his. . . .someday!
Micheal vick? he shouldnt be allowed to play football a crime against mans best friend is as low as you can get its a fuck u from a guy who thinks he is the shit well shit stinks and he should be put in a ring with a pit bull a fightin one that can bite and rip. Dog fighting being black? Its started by them but who fueled it the mob and gangs. it isnt just black he got off easy its becuz of a secret payment to the judges fund for campaigning he should be shot in the knee end made to walk a mile Fuck the fact he is back in the nfl he should be dead dog fighting is wrong ive been in a gang and wel thet held one and a dog died the owner cried and put a stop to it no more now thankfully just becuz he is blackont mean shit he did a crime that is unforgivable to do color has nothing to do with it actions do and his actions were dead wrong
