Default Stay Classy, Eagles (Part II)

Eagles players honor Michael Vick with award for courage

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl,210601

Quote:
Today, the Eagles announced that Michael Vick was the 2009 winner of the Ed Block Courage Award, an honor given to a player who shows courage in the face of adversity. Vick's teammates voted for the award, thus demonstrating how tone-deaf and out-of-touch NFL players are with reality.
Quote:
Apparently Philadelphia players confuse Vick handling dogfighting questions and booing with a measure of class as some sort of courage. That Vick only got a chance to show this mild courageousness because of the extreme cowardice it takes to murder helpless animals isn't something that crosses their mind. They confuse Vick's desperation with some sort of integrity.

Courage must = lying in the face of your former boss about everything when questioned by him. I'd love to get a quote from Arthur Blank about this.

"I've had to overcome a lot, more than probably one single individual can bear," Vick said. "Take a look at what I've been through. You ask certain people to walk in my shoes, they probably couldn't do it. Probably 95 percent of the people in this world -- because nobody had to endure what I've been through, situations I've been put in, situations I've placed myself in, decisions that I've made -- whether they were good or bad."
Hahahahahaha no you can't have my sympathy you ****ing douche nozzle scum bucket.

What a joke.

A side note: This is an award every team gets right? Who did the Broncos choose?

On topic: The Vick deal is absolutely retarded.

I live an hour from Philly, I could probably get tickets . . . but it will be too darn cold, they will probably lose, and Elway and Floyd Little are no longer on the team!

Here's what I want to know:

Why does the NFL even have a courage award to begin with? I mean, do any NFL players really face adversity in their everyday life like normal people? I mean, I know these guys are human. I know some have kids with disabilities, family members who die, etc. I know it's not all roses. But still, do millionaires really need a courage award?

Picture is a year old, oddly enough my hair is still that long this time around. Gotta keep the hair long for the cold Fargo winters, Mr. Kevin James.

And if you are offended by my comments saying "Move on." -- fine by me. I'm not condoning his actions, it is just time for people to stop b****ing about them. Fighting dogs isn't right, but there are a whole lot of things on the "moral list" that he could have done that would have been considered worse.

He did his time. Whether or not he is a changed man is not for me to judge. Especially when I do my own fair share of questionable things.

No amount of "courage" awards are gonna keep Vick outta hell for killing defenseless creatures. The only way he avoids that fate is a 5 year stint with the Raiders, or for those who are fans of irony, the Browns.

Society falls victum and tends to recommit our errors time and time again. As evidenced by this stupid ****ing award he was given.

Take your pity party back over to broncos forums... oh wait they banned your ass.

Must not have much of a backbone (or anything) if you are boycotting a football game because Vick is playing in it. What are you, six? Christ man, grow a pair.

Pair of socks? A pair in poker? Come on now. But seriously. How childish are you?

You are going to boycott an NFL game because Vick is playing in it because he fought dogs, yet somehow are able to tolerate watching other NFL games with players who are involved in drug trafficking, drug usage, domestic violence or have committed other serious offenses?

I bet you stopped drinking Mountain Dew when they switched up the label too.
