I guess that answers your question then, Musky. Michael Vick hates white people so much that he murders the dogs that they breed.
I wasn't too sure how to respond to that one, so I left it alone. It seemed to take this three page thread a little out of context.
Sounds like Michael Vick, whether he's white, black, or purple, is going to plea bargain, if he hasn't already. I heard on two separate radio
programs today, that stories of him personally killing losing dogs were so graphic they could not be described on the radio.
He's going to do some time. How much is yet to be determined. He has become a nonperson as far as the NFL is concerned. His jerseys and other
memorabilia are no longer offered on the NFL and Atlanta Falcons sites, and Nike no longer offers his footwear.
These sanctions are warranted. It would make more sense to me, however, if the NFL and corporate sponsors took the same hard line when it came to
athletes that beat or raped women.
I think what Vick did is despicable, and indicates a real personality deficiency. The earning power made available to him by his skills and
employment in the NFL should be taken away. It should also be taken from others. Don't be surprised, however, when he's playing again for someone
in two or three years.
I love football. When he's back playing I will love it a little less, just like I've loved it a little less when numerous others have come back
after other despicable acts. Dogfighting, while more prevalent than the general public can comprehend, is just so weird when brought to light, that
it generates a horrible outrage.
If you read how I started this thread, I found it so weird that I wondered if anyone could explain how a person could be involved with such an
enterprise. Hence my questions. Since then, I have heard there is a sub-culture in this country that numbers from 40,000 to 60,000 people that fight
Since I'm listening to a Greg Brown CD as I write this, all I can say is, "Who woulda thunk it."
