Tired of Michael Vick Hype

Yep, you read that right! We're tired of hearing all the media hype about Michael Vick, including the praise that has been rolling forth from the "give the ex-dogfighting,now reformed animal loving Michael Vick the right to own a dog" HSUS. We can't stop people for idol worshipping him because he can play football, but we're not joining them. Maybe one day some die-hard fans will be able to see through the football jersey to the heart of the man they are now praising as one worthy of honor and a key to the city.

This video needs no introduction. Vick doesn't appear to care about the dogs he tortured. And we don't care about Vick!


If the video doesn't play, click here.

There are many men and women in the world who are honorable role models but they can't play football so they're real but unsung heroes. We would rather hear about them.

  2. We think it seems like a non-issue! If a person brutally abused and murdered several children, and then four years later wanted to adopt a child, everyone would think they were crazy! Are dogs that UNIMPORTANT that they're worth being put in danger just to give someone a chance? If he had, maybe, kicked a dog or yelled at a dog four years ago, maybe he'd deserve a second chance... but for this, he shouldn't get a second chance!

  3. I so agree we say this all the time. There are so many people doing so much good in the world but they dont play football and they dont get paid obscene amounts of money for it either. looking at the video this man does not deserve anyone to hero worship him. He should not get a second chance. Sorry for the rant...

  4. I had to google this guy and then stopped cos I got most depressed.
    :-(

    so I looked up The Daily Puppy and there were updates on the doggies rescued from this guy and now I feel much better. They're lovely doggies, friendly, highly sociable and it's appalling what was done to them.

    I'm just glad the doggies are ok and safe and as far away from their former life as ever!! Take care

  6. We would all be very happy if we never saw or heard his name again. He is just evil.

  7. I always say "what goes around comes around". One day he'll get his...maybe not in this world...but it'll happen.

  8. Anyone who re-thinks their attitude is to be commended ... but it seems a bit weird to make such a song and dance about it. You'd think he'd do this about turn quietly through shame and shyness...

  9. I do not think there is one thing interesting about Michael Vick. He is just an icky human being. I don't care what talent he has at anything.

  12. My mom feels the same way. She says she's just so TIRED of wasting any energy at all on somebuddy like that. And so she's just not gonna anymore.

    You know what she's decided about him being a big famous football star again? She decided that it turned out this way so he couldn't hurt anymore dogs. She figures that at least if he's under the spotlight, he wouldn't DARE be caught doing something like that again. But if he had just went back to being a normal person that nobuddy cared about watching, that maybe he woulda gotten back into dogfighting to make money. So maybe this is how it has to be for him not to hurt anymore doggies.

    At least that's what she tells herself so she can get some sleep at night.

  13. It truly makes me sick that people look up to this man & hail him a hero. He did his time, yes, but if anyone really thinks he's changed, they need their heads examined. I cannot believe they gave him the key to the city. He should never be able to LOOK at another dog, let alone own one!!

  14. I cannot agree more that I am sick of hearing about this thing (can't call him a person). He is scum and doesn't deserve any of the hype or even the job he has. I can't believe so many people have let him off so easy. It just makes me sad to think that people are acting like he is great when he is really scum.

  15. sooooo sick of the Vick adoration, and the fact that anyone can say he's reformed is just putrid. Ugh, I want to say a lot more but I just can't because it makes me too mad and sad.

  16. Once again, he shows he doesn't get it despite how much he claims to have changed -
