It does not say anything...but it is still bad...now again, Vick is innocent till proven guilty...IMO they made themselves look childish by selling this stuff...now..if Vick is found guilty...then I get it.


Sensationalism. Those PETA folks are good at it. First-class wackos.

Good for PETA.

Sometimes I don't know why agents allow their clients to hang out with thugs considering how much money they will lose on stupid acts like Vicks.

I was looking on PETA's website last night and...


Are you normally on PETA's website? :huh:

As a vegetarian/animal-rights supporter, I find myself in agreement with a lot of what PETA has to say, but not in how they do it. Quite often, such as in this case, they will jump the gun. From their vantage point now is the ideal time to strike. They can't lose. Should Vick be acquitted, they will already have sold all the T-shirts. Should he be convicted, they'll print more.

The "brick through the window" activism turns a lot of people off rather than make them think about the agony those dogs went through.

Peta uses the shock technique but rarely do they ever think before they speak. :wacko:'s

Anyone ever see the "Got Prostate Cancer" billboard?

I think PETA is also selling that stuff in an attempt to convince the NFL to suspend Vick indefinitely while the whole issue is sorted out.

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....

Waa? He's supposed to be the NFL's big new star. Money >>>> Morals. The NFL will re-instate him the day the police let him go. I mean, all he did was let dogs bite each other until they bled to death. It's not like he did something serious like smoke a joint.

Seems like you're confused. On the one hand, you say that the NFL puts money over morals, and on the other, they've ended the career of an incredibly talented running back because of his marijuana addiction.

Vick's supposed to be the NFL's big new star, but he never had the on-field success that many had hoped - he's an average QB.

Dogfighting is reprehensible. Vick should be punished by the law and the NFL - but being robbed of his livelihood entirely because of it, I disagree.

I would be confused if I believed that smoking marijuana showed bad morals any more than, say, drinking a can of Mountain Dew per day shows bad morals.

No matter how bad Vick played, the media would laud him with praise for "playing outside the box". He could go 5-11 and they'd still be kissing his ass. Minus this incident he'd still be one of their poster boys.

the media would laud him with praise because he's exciting to watch - just like people enjoy base-stealers even though base-stealing really doesn't help a team win very much at all.

i liked watching him too and it's a shame he won't be playing this year.

Michael Vick (Photo Getty) Michael Vick pled not culprit with the charges relating to the participation of combat of dogs. Vick was presented in court at 15h00 in a commercial vehicle black sport. It was hooted by the hundreds of people present. Vick and three other individuals were shown to have violated the American federal laws against the combat of dogs, to have provided and have involved pitbulls with an aim of leading them to fight, and of having carried out these activities in more than one State. More details to come
