Default What is up with love fest for vick.

There was what seemed like a half hour interview with him today on the NFl network.

The guy should not even have been allowed to play football again and they are trying to make him a hero.

I like how his comments were already changing too. The interviewer asked him what was he going to do when fans confronted him about what he had done.

He said, yeah it probably was not the right thing to do. But it only got this bad because the media blew it up.

Further more he has done NOTHING for the eagles. I think he has only played what 2 plays or something like that. I know one was as a WR.

Man what they will do for ratings.

Nothing has changed. Me and a buddy would always talk about how Vick was famous for those 9-22 for 120 yards passing days, yet ESPN would always show all 9 of those completions along with a few of his rushing attempts during the highlight segments and pretend like he had a superb day.

I wouldn't say he shouldn't have been allowed to play, he did his time...that is another issue.

I agree on the attention thing, between him and Favre...what else do they need?

Say what you want. He's an exciting player to watch and he deserves a second chance just like anybody else. The only difference is he's actually paid his debt.

I do believe he deserves his second chance and he is handling himself well, though he has been uneffective on the field.

What I object to is the sheer hypocrisy of the sports media. They all crucified the guy, and now there is zero mention of what he did, and and no end to the coverage and love. I get he is a story, but have some credibility for crying out loud. I wonder what Vick thinks of them?

Dude, not to be rude but he has done nothing since his return. Maybe they should have had a half hour on how Kolbs (sp) put up 300 yard fresh off the bench.

I think the media and fans are making too much of a big deal over Vick. His supports need to shut up, and his detractors need to shut up too! Let the guy play. I don't really see him making an impact as a player, so I laugh at people who say that McNabb should be worried. But he did his time so he has every right to make a living in the NFL. Seems like his detractors would only be happy if he was working a minimum wage job.

i don't mind 2nd chance, don't interview him so often as though he went in to fight in iraq or afgan and just returned back.

he did something wrong, he is back. just ignore him and don't make him a god. few weeks back they had a interview with charles rogers (former detriot top pick) he was flat out lying on the interview and you could say it from him eyes... and he was arrested and in jail after few weeks. why interview these idiots, who are bad and try to make them look good.

once vick does some good things or plays well.. i am ok, but not now

He's played one game to what amounts as a specialist. He's not the most accurate passer to begin with and hasn't played a regular season game since 06. Either way I am rooting for him to be a success story for several reasons. He's a Virginia Tech Hokieand a Virginian. I also believe he has the athletic ability to help a team win. He and I chewed some same dirt growing up and we are from the same area. Above all I believe in redemption. HE can do it provided he takes the right steps.

Good for him that he gets another chance. That being said, he will be an absolute non factor this year. Don't look for all of this attention in a few weeks, cuz it won't be there.

I think the increased coverage on Vick shows the media's obvious hatred for dogs more than any love for him.

There are crimes that people commit that some say are unforgivable. I would argue this is one of them. I don't know anyone could wite of 7+ years of senseless torturing and murdering dogs as just a mistake. All this coverage of him and this he's paid his debt attitude makes me sick. you guys pretty much suck

Am I the only person who can see Vick's foot-speed is WAY down on what it used to be? He shuffles more than he runs now.


A couple of times last month the media tried "too hard" to paint Vick as a changed man it cracked me up. "Vick has spoken to school kids about not getting involved in dog fighting ..." kind of obvious isn't it?
Made me wonder, if Plax will one day talk to kids "Advising them to NOT shoot themselves in the leg" soon to be followed by Donte's advice of "Don't get drunk, drive yourself home and run over jaywalkers!"


He's got a second chance, my thoughts on it really don't matter, what matters is that he gets his crap together, stays out of trouble and brings up his children to do the right thing.

I don't think dog killing is as unforgiveable unless it's my dog or your dog. It's a cultural thing right or wrong. In the end though, as WRONG as it was, those dogs were his property. They aren't human beings. Ray Lewis did something much worse IMO. And Ray Carruth got what he deserved. I can tell you this. Had he done that to my dog, his mother would have had to bury him.

we all love redemption stories but it amazes me people are not more outraged. Does he deserve a second chance at life sure, but a second chance at making boatloads of money I say no

The difference is you are stealing other peoples property where as Vick was doing what he wanted with his. But outside of all that...I bet we can go to places in Australia and find some kind of animal fighting for sport. Same in most countries. Go to the Phillpines and in many small towns in the center you'll find a cock-fighting ring.

The thing is I don't think he learned his lesson. His anwsers already have changed from i screwed up, it was wrong. To it was probably a bad choice and it would not have been that bad but the media blew it up.

He was one of the leaders in Dog fighting in America. He is scum. He did do his time, ok fine but don't make him a god over it. What does that teach the kids. You go to prison and when you get out the news will interview you several times per week and all is forgiven ??

Not arguing that either crime is better or that animal cruelty doesn't go on in other countries, what I'm saying is that "making excuses" for it is the problem. Using terms like "it's a cultural thing" is a joke, it makes a mockery of hard working people who do the right thing despite their upbringing/background to advance themselves in the world!

Vick didn't get jail time for the dog fighting - he got it for being STUPID. You are a $100,000,000 athlete ... when illegal activities are happening on your property and risking your career, you stop them.

It might not have been your dog, but humans were affected by Vick's actions. I don't see dogs as just human property, they have very real emotions and they feel pain. I want to say I respect your opinion but I really don't.

They ran a segment last week on the origin of the Wildcat, then a week later Vick calls himself the original Wildcat QB. What's f-d up is they all agreed with him, these morons don't even pay attention to their own programing.

It's really not a joke. We make exceptions all the time with respect to the cultures of others. Was he wrong? Absolutely.
