There you go confusing hatred for contempt. Vick is contemptible as they come. His greedy play hurt his team and speaks of poor character. His hiring body guards is not to avoid confrontation but merely more self preservation from a selfish individual. Vick refused to acknowlegde the dog pic shown to him by his confronter. His body gaurds clearly state ...[text shortened]... him up as a role model he should never be allowed to be. The man is a kiler, plain and simple.
Vick killed dogs. It ain't the highlight of his resume but why is such a big deal to you? Why do you constantly want to bash Vick and not others who avoid punishment for their crimes.
(1) It is because he killed animals? because we kill animals all the time. Some people hunt for fun (they shoot animals and leave them there -- our society does not even care enough to make it illegal). Billions and billions let others cook killed food for them in McDonalds. Some people actually eat dogs (it's food like chicken).
(2) It is because a made animals fight. Some people watch chickens fight (Pedro Martinez and Juan Marichal were said to have attended fights -- legal in their country). Not an activity I'd be interested in but much of the world does not even beleive it should be illegal.
(3) It is because he broke the law. Major league sports is filled with people who break laws. Some win awards after using illegal drugs (performance enhancers). Charles Oakley estimated that 80% of the NBA used marijuana an illegal drug. People commit DWIs all sexual assaults the time and come back play. The NFL has players who were drunk and killed humans (a far worse crime).
Iverson was pardoned of a felony so he could go to Georgetown.
I think you just have an irrational anger toward dog fightintg. Vick was punished; he served real time. Now he's back and making the most of it.
