Now, When Michael says the court doesn’t make him speak out against dog fighting or work with the humane society, that much is true, but the league does, let’s keep in mind that the league, and more specifically, the “Eagles” are responsible for setting up The Michael Vick Project with BET network, in an effort to smooth out his reputation, they sank a lot of money into this train wreck, and they need to make him over so he is palatable to the general public again.
Do not be fooled by celebrity, and hype, when you feel yourself leaning toward the Vick train, always remember what he did, remember that this pillar of the community, strangled, electrocuted, beat, burned and shot some of the dogs with his own two hands. Remember the dogs that still have issues to this day, one can never be adopted out without risk, another cowars away from human contact, and another died while having surgery to repair the damage done to her by those same hands! Personally I am not convinced or impressed with his complete 180, we all want to believe in redemption, and the ability to change, well stop kidding yourselves folks, does a murderer all of a sudden become someone not capable of murder? Does a child molester one day change because he feels bad about it?
The answer is no, they don’t! Anyone with the ability to do things like that, has no capacity for real heart-felt change, I’m sorry the just don’t! So Michael Vick can talk all he wants about how he is a changed man, blah, blah, blah, it’s all just the con. The con to get you back to the game and spending your money, and that’s all!
