Man, I was lucky as crap last night. I went to my neighbors house for a SB party and NO ONE would bet me and I was giving the points. I would have lost my AZZ. Great Game. Giants played the better game, Their Defensive Line should have been the's they had Brady running for his life the whole game.
Don't get me wrong, I think animal cruelty is very disgusting, and the people that commit such acts in the U.S. are huge pussies because they are pitting helpless animals against each other to fight, but Vick was found guilty and is serving his time. I hope he still has a job with the NFL when he gets out, and I hope he rebounds from this life experience and changes his ways. But to completely condemn a man for killing dogs?
The roar at the bar last night, when the Giants won was amazing/hilarious/semi-disturbing, but hell, upsets are always fun! I went into that game not really caring who won, but once I saw the Giants turn it on, I was like, "Damn, this may be a fun game after all"
I guess all I'm saying is - that was a good game for being at a crowded college bar. Lotsa' entertainment! Lotsa' beer!!
PS: Still outta DCP
Also I bet you wouldn't support Vick much if it was your dog he had killed. Or your mom for that matter, you'd then have a whole different outlook. And leave Ted Bundy outta this, he's my hero...
im pretty sure this thread started with DCP so lets get back on track.
I LOVE DCP! and the giants
You're just searching for an argument. Are you that mentally retarded that you would think I wouldn't be crazy pissed if he killed my friend or family member, or even my dog? I don't get why the **** you would even ask that, it seems to show your lack of common sense.
In the U.S., dogfighting is looked down upon, because in this country, it's regarded as inhumane. But go to other countries, and it's basically a sport. Does that make the inhabitants of other countries inhumane and stupid? Hell no, completely different cultures.
I find dog fighting just as disgusting as you do. But I'm not going to hate or crucify a man because he killed a few dogs. With the way the media and PETA bashed Vick, you would have thought he went on a murder spree.
Mike Vick never took DCP.
Vick broke the law. He got caught and got what he deserved. He shouldn't be allowed to have dogs again. Other countries do it for sport, but we don't. It's illegal and inhumane here. It's part of some cultures overseas. It's done and over with. Sheesh. I'm sure he's a terrific athlete and did several good things, but dogfighting isn't one of them. We've all established that. Stop talking about murder, bashing one another's mother's, and so on and so forth. This isn't the 4th grade. No mom bashing.
y'all need to get off of mama's cause I just got off yours.
Just between his selection by the Falcons in the '01 Draft & early '07, here's a tribute to the great Michael Vick:
- In 2007, conflicting statements were made by his estranged parents about possible dogfighting activities in 2001. Michael Boddie, his father, who now lives in Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that around 2001, Michael Vick was staging dogfights in the garage of the family's home in Newport News and kept fighting dogs in the family's backyard, including injured ones which the father nursed back to health. Boddie said his son had been urged to not engage in the activity, but continued. He stated "This is Mike's thing. And he knows it." Within days, Michael Vick's mother, Brenda Vick Boddie, who now lives in Suffolk, Virginia, responded. She told the Newport News Daily Press "There was no dogfighting [at our home]. There were no cages."
- In early 2004, two men were arrested in Virginia for distributing marijuana. The truck they were driving was registered to Michael Vick. The Falcons coach Dan Reeves recalled that he lectured Vick at that time on the importance of reputation, on choosing the right friends, on staying out of trouble for the good of his team. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quoted Reeves as having told Vick: "You are an Atlanta Falcon...Whatever you do is going to be a reflection on all of us, not just you."
- On October 10, 2004, Vick and the other members of his party including employee Quanis Phillips were at Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport on their way to board an AirTran afternoon flight to Newport News, Virginia. While they were passing through a security checkpoint with Vick, a security camera caught Phillips and Todd Harris picking up an expensive-appearing watch (either a Rolex or a fake) which belonged to Alvin Spencer, a security screener. After watching the theft on a video tape, Spencer filed a police report. However, he claimed that Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, known as the Falcons "fixer", interfered with the investigation.Although Vick representatives declined to make him available for an Atlanta police inquiry, six days later Spencer did get the watch back from them, according to the Washington Post.
- In March 2005 a woman named Sonya Elliott filed a civil lawsuit against Vick alleging she contracted genital herpes from Vick, in the autumn of 2002, and that he failed to inform her that he had the disease. Elliot further alleged that Vick had visited clinics under the alias "Ron Mexico" to get treatments and thus he knew of his condition. On April 24, 2006 Vick's attorney, Lawrence Woodward, revealed that the lawsuit had settled out of court with an undisclosed amount. Many fans bought custom jerseys from NFL.com with Vick's number 7 and the name "MEXICO" on the back, as a reference to his lawsuit. The NFL has since banned customizing jerseys with the name Mexico.
- November 26, 2006, After a Falcons loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Georgia Dome in apparent reaction to fans booing, Vick made an obscene gesture at fans, holding up two middle fingers. He was fined $10,000 by the NFL for his obscene gesture, and agreed to donate another $10,000 to charity.
- January 17, 2007, Vick surrendered a water bottle which had a hidden compartment to security personnel at Miami International Airport. "The compartment was hidden by the bottle's label so that it appeared to be a full bottle of water when held upright," police said. Test results indicated there were no illegal substances in the water bottle and Vick was cleared of any wrongdoing. Vick announced that the water bottle was a jewelry stash box, and that the substance in question had been jewelry.
I could go on but there's no point, peace.
boys, take it elsewhere, this is a thread about the new york giants winning a boatload of dcp
