Protestors: Vick's Sick

7/21/2007 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Animal rights protesters are angry over Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick's alleged involvement with an illegal dogfighting ring. Vick was indicted on Tuesday for federal dogfighting charges.

Around 75 animal-loving members of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals demonstrated in front of the NFL's New York offices on Friday calling for Vick's suspension, reported the Daily News. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to rule on Vick's status.

The Humane Society of the United States held a similar protest at Nike's Portland, Oregon, headquarters. Nike recently decided not to release its newest Vick shoe, though it has seven other Vick-related items in production.

Michael Vick's, what a sorry day the day you were born! Your mother must be so ashamed! So heartbroken and destroyed the day you were conceived; you would have been the perfect excuse for abortion! You are the epitome of critically deformed, soul less and without conscience. Truly evil!

Vick's you have set back your fellow brethen 100 years....confirming stupid "brothers" should NEVER come into to lots of $$$$$. Just cuz you can run fast and catch a ball doesn't make you respectable!

Money in your hands gave you power...unfortunately over dogs! Man's best friend, who trust you, love you, obey you no matter what! We all remember and loath Jeffery Dahme. Vick's you Dahmer waiting to happen! The worst of cowards and IMPOTENT too.

It's true, child and animal abusers are IMPOTENT! Michael Vick's takes out his frustration by abusing animals because he can't get it up!!! He get's a semi erection from watching his faithful loyal animals fight to the death and his final thrill ( ejaculation) when killing the loser! What a MAN! You da Man Vick's You da man!!

If you love football and football represents strength, power , honesty, integrity, AMERICA , put Vick's where he deserves to be. In prison where hopefully a "rape stand" will be "erected" by his fellow mates where he can daily realize all the fun and jolley's his prized dogs enjoyed. And when he whines hang him by his testicles, and when he groans soak him with water and electrocute him, and if he hollars toss him with all of your masculine strength against the floor.

But that's only to show your loyalty to such a coward. Keep him alive but barley. Chain him up close to a bowl of food and water, but not close enough to reach it for days. Make him hungry, make him humble, break him to want you to need you to love you. Then put him in a room of other pukes just like himself, at least three of his associates, and let them tear each others throats out! And if they don't....chain 'em up again w/o medical attention, if they survive show 'em real love and send 'em back for more!!

For smilesarefree hopefully you can receive some of the same treatment, you deserve it. If you have a mother or girlfriend or wife or children or animals I hope they can escape you NOW!! Run don't walk this coward is a danger waiting to happen ...or perhaps it's too late!

Michael Vick's you are a COWARD! An IMPOTENT COWARD! All the money in the world, all of the fame and adoration of the fans won't make you a man.

Falcon lovers if you love the game, if you truly respect the game, demand that this disgusting, pathetic waste of space be sentenced to the full extent of the law! Even if it means you lose a season. Cheaters never win...and winners never cheat!

I'm not a football fan but I'm from America and we all have the right to due process in this country. Before we go throwing Michael under the bus, why doesn't everyone just settle down until the judicial system has either found him guilty or innocent. I'm very against animal cruelty and IF he did it and he's found guilty, then throw him to the dogs (no pun intended). This is America, people. He deserves his right to be innocent until proven GUILTY.

Dear Mr. SMILESBYFREE,
Your the most ignorate person by far that has posted comments on this site, I hope that someone drenches you with water and puts a tazer on your balls to see what that feels like since animals are so stupid according to you, same goes for MICHAEL VICK. I hope the NFL Suspends him, minus well get rid off him and cancel his contract. Mr.SMILESBYFREE I hope you fall out of a boat and get stuck in sea weed and never surface. gcast49

I think the point here is this is not where we as a people should be in this day and age. Whats next, are we going back to tossing the Christians in with lions? Oh yes, I know some smarty will say we should, but that just proves my point. We as a nation should be better then this. We do not want to be like other who cut off heads, or torture or any number of vile things. And your right, why are there no 'famous' people speaking out on this more. We have too many un-wanted animals, and telling people to spay doesn't help. So many want to but are unable to. The cost is so high. The vets here make more than the family doc does! Thats not right, but there you have it. Untill enough people start making noise, this sort of sport will continue. Mr.Vick, has brought this shamfull sport to the public eye. It is sad that he is involved, but,in the long run, this may be a good thing for the poor animals used like this. This may be the way somthing good will come from somthing so very very bad!

Dog Fighting is a national disgrace. It goes on everywhere. It has taken a high profile case like Vick to bring it out in the open and to make everyone more aware. Some states still have very lax laws on dogfighting and we the citizens need to let our government know we wont tolerate dog fighting any more. We also need it to be a felony for everyone involved the fighters, the breeders, the owners and the spectators. I know everyone is innonent until proven quilty but just the evidence that has been released is hard to ignore. As a very active member of the Humane Society, I have seen firsthand how cruel animals can be treated but the worst usually are the pits. The sad part is if a pit bull comes to a shelter they are not considered adoptable. These animals if raised by a loving caring owner are the most loyal dogs ever. My son got a pit bull puppy and, i must admit based on their reputation I was very leery. Sammie is now 5 years old. He is the sweetest, most loving ,obedient ,smartest dog that I have ever seen. He is around many people, children, and other animals and there has never been any problem or any form of aggression. My son now has a female about 1 year old and she is also a doll. The public needs to be educated that this breed is not necessarily aggreessive, more often it is how they are trained. Mike Vick and his thugs should be punished but I wish we could throw them in the pit with dogs they abused so horribly. There is no excuse to treat any animal like these animals were treated. When he is convicted and he will be. I hope he receives the maximum punishment for his inhumanity. May God forgive him.

So they're ALL pleading not guilty. Dumb and Dumber. If he gets away with this because he's a so-called football star and therefore untouchable, oh will there be hell.

THANK YOU NIKE AND REEBOK!

"Nike suspended its lucrative contract with Michael Vick on Friday, while Reebok took the unprecedented step of stopping sales of his No. 7 jersey."

You can get the full story at msn.foxsports.com

This is a step in the right direction.

Yep, I'll make my next pair Reebok. For anyone interested courttv has a message board with more threads on this topic. Sports Illustrated has a poll, etc. I'm searching for other forums since TMZ seems to have gotten really bogged down with the "big three" pictured to the right of the screen.
