Michael Vick

My Doggone Life

3/29/2009 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It looks like former Atlanta Falcons QB and current dog-killing inmate Michael Vick is following in O.J. Simpson's footsteps -- he's shopping around a book about his life and crimes.

The proposed memoir of Vick's rise from poverty to stardom would likely be an attempt to show the NFL that he's sorry enough to be let back in the league. You know, sorry about the dogs, dog fighting and dog imprisonment, but also sorry for going to jail for 23 months. Remember, this is the NFL... it's almost impossible to get suspended forever. They still like O.J. and he killed his wife got imprisoned for stealing memorabilia.

The book will likely be a mixture of the "Da Vinci Code" and O.J.'s "If I Did It." Except with more dog torture. And 100% ghostwritten.

Whoopie Goldberg said it best on the View. Apparently, we just don't understand his upbringing. He comes from the "deep south". (According to her Virginia is the deep south.) Racist bitch. As for OJ, would his defenders have had the same feelings if he had killed his black ex-wife? I think their tune would have changed. White, Black, or whatever, punish the guilty.

You see, animals don't have choices, people do. Animals depend on our empathy and charity. So most people see animals as innocent as babies. But anyone that does what Vick did to animals, will not be good with women or children. So Michael Vick is a preview of OJ. Blaming culture is like blaming the stars. As humans, we still have a choice over culture or stars.

SPANKY, YES, I could NOT agree with you more! You said it best...
maybe this idiot will walk through an airport and no one notices him or who he is! He should wear a sandwich sign that says, "I abused animals and all I got was a little jail time." Kind of like OJ.. who the he _ _ would rent from HERTZ these days?

Just saying....

#91 Are you not getting off the subject a little? This dicussion is about cruelty to animals not if we should play football. Personally I don't want kids hurt either, but that is probably up to their parents . I like football myselfbut would leave if they played football with swords. Are we a paintywaist?

There's something seriously wrong with black's in our society. They see no wrong with someone that's so demented that he totures and murders dogs for fun, but this is also the same group that celebrated the digusting "O.J. is innocent" b.s. back in the early 90's. He viciously murdered two innocent people like a barbarian and the majority of blacks in this nation were over joyed. There's absolutely ZERO doubt which segment is the most racist and hate filled in this country. We need to stop walking around on eggshells because the liberal media has convinced us if we make any HONEST observations or assessments about blacks then that means we're the ones that are racist. It's time these "people" are put into their rightful place and confronted head on. Until then, they're going to keep rasing their children to be mindless bigots and the HATE & BLAME WHITEY campaign will continue.

LOOK, THE MAN HAS DONE HIS TIME, HE HAS APOLOGIZED FOR HIS WRONG DOING TO ANIMALS AND PEOPLE, WHEN WILL PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT AND MAKE THOSE PEOPLE THAT FIGHT CHICKENS APOLOGIZE AND DO THE SAME, MAKING ANIMALS FIGHT IS WRONG, BUT HOW MANY OF THE PEOPLE THAT GOT ON BOARD THIS WAGON REALLY CARE TO SAY AT SOME TIME THEY MADE THE SAME MISTAKE IN THEIR LIVES, BUT NEVER HAD TO SPEND A DAY OR HOUR IN JAIL OR NEVER GOT ANYTHING TAKEN AWAY FOR THE SAME THING, ANIMALS ARE ANIMALS, ITS WRONG TO FIGHT CHICKENS AS WELL AS DOGS!!!!!!

14. #11 justsaying.....while I agree with your analogy about dogs vs people, your anger seems to be directed at white people, cause they outnumber minorities, therefore, more powerful. If you gave that some more thought, you might realize that the reason whites have more power, is because minorities can't stay out of jail long enough to be productive.

Comments like this (unless it's just a very bad joke!!) is what makes society what it is today-to a certain degree. There are plenty of white people in jail/prisons too, so why do you have to make a ignorant racist statement like that to begin with??? A crime is just that-a crime despite whatever race the person is who committed it. End of story. But when people feel the ignorant and/or racist need to bring a person's color into things that are simply NOT relevant, that shows me a lot of what is in that person's heart and character. And it's NOT flattering to them at all. So you want to make your opinions/beliefs known?? Go for it! But you'll be taken far more serious if you leave the race card out of it completely unless it is imparative that it need to be known. This world could be a far more better place-one person (their attitudes, hearts and minds) at a time-beginning with ourselves instead of first pointing the finger at others!

LIssa, sorry hun, but the numbers speak for themselves. If we're supposed to believe blacks are only 12% of our population (LOL!!!!!) but yet they make up the majority of violent offenders in prision, that's a little hard to ignore. You're the racist if you can't discuss the facts without throwing out empty labels and insults. Blacks, by ratio of their supposed population, lead all the categories of violent crimes, teen pregnancy, drop out rates, etc. Instead of being angry at those people that dare to state the truth, why not direct your engery towards trying to solve these problems?

People need to boycott this loser from writing any book! He should be working in an animal shelter cleaning up dog poop for the rest of his life. Vick is a loser and a complete waste of space on this planet. Dog's are god's creatures, he did not put them on this planet to be abused, starved, maimed, and killed by sick people like ICKY VICK.

I have a dog, and I love dogs. This guy did his time, and he will lose a lot more in the coming weeks with his bankruptcy proceedings. It's time to forgive him for his past acts. This is America, the land of opportunity. Let this guy move on with his life. Stop bashing him. I see people let Marthe Stewart, Keifer Sutherland, Paris Hilton, and a host of other celebs move on after they served their time. You may not think their crimes were not as serious but they were. Martha, insider trading. Keifer and Paris, could have killed people while driving under the influence. Time to let Vick move on.

To #104- F some dogs? F you with a CAPITALF!!! There are people in this world that do love their animals. It seems to me that you would not know how to take care of a defenseless animal much less your kids. Do you live in a world where you make up your own rules? Also why don't you learn how to spell!

I have seen child molesters get better treatment than what Mike Vick is getting for being stupid. I am a born animal lover and I do not condone anything that is done against animals; however, I just can't help but wonder why is everyone on the "crucify Mike Vick tip", but others that have done far worse seem to go unnotice. Why the double standard?? Also, seems as though most people would cry their eyes out about an animal, but cannot muster any compassion for a human, its ridiculous. Some of you stand by and watch a man beat a woman down, but where is the outrage at that, it sure is not the outrage that some of you have toward Mike Vick. Some of you are just upset about Fido, but could care less about what child molesters are doing to our children. I just wish I heard the same moral outrage when crimes are being committed against humans, but sadly, that is just not the case.
