So a news story that i waited to unfold to post my opinions is the Micheal Vick dog fighting thing. I usually wait till all info is out there before i state how i feel on certain topics. I am a huge believer in animal rights, They can't speak for themselves so some people gotta do it for them, i know hippie talk, but still!
You know the idea of Dog fights, i won't lie are pretty bitching, two dogs just goin ape shit on each other, it has to be somewhat entertaining much like a boxing match. What drives me nuts is the fact he brutally killed dogs, hanging them with barbed wires, he had rape post to breed more dogs and that he really didn't feel remorse, until he got caught. In fact he blamed everyone else before he took any responsibility for his actions.
I was reading a paper the other day that stated that "Vick feels remorse, and for the most part we should all forgive and forget." That right there is the benefit of having a good publicist to spin stories in your favour. Had he not been caught, would he really have stopped, would he have put on this grade A regretful act...hell no he would still be doing it. I don't see how anyone can really forget this.
The only people who can forgive and forget are people paid to do so, we call the GMs.
At the end of the day, Vick is a talented QB in the NFL so like it or not as soon as he is free, many teams will be quick to dish out contracts, and at the end of the day he still makes more money than most of us will see in a lifetime....
the system works...
