The Michael Vick bullshit

Filed under: Uncategorized — Bart @ 8:33 am

Apparently it’s OK with the NFL is he’s promoting dog fights, torturing dogs and then having the great fun of killing the loser. All the NFL is worried about is if there was any gambling involved, which is crazy.

Betting on yourself to lose should be the ONLY gambling crime the NFL should be concerned with. Why does the NFL take on this nanny profile when it comes to gambling?

Almost every state has casinoes* now, so what’s the “problem” with gambling, assuming the player isn’t betting on himself to lose?

Meanwhile, the judge who holds Vick’s life in his hands couldn’t care less if $50 was bet on some dog fight – why should the judge and the NFL see different outrages in this case?


  1. How we treat the most defenseless in our society is a reflection of what our society values.

  2. Michael Vick had it all and only squandered it, while Herman Mitchell was only a few months away from getting the opportunity to flourish as an adult after such meager beginnings!
