Michael Vick

'I Made Bad Decisions'

8/14/2009 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Michael Vick "Please Don't Pelt Me with Objects" tour began today as Vick addressed the press for the first time as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vick said all the right things -- like "I won't disappoint," "Playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right," and "You only get one shot at a second chance" -- but he's still got a long way to go to win over the fans of Philly. 

Remember, these are the same people that booed Santa Claus.

To all of you that say that Vick deserves a second chance--what about the innocent dogs that he hanged from trees, electrocuted, drowned, and tortured for a period of six long years??? When will they get their second chance? The only thing they were guilty of was not being vicious enough to win a dog fight. Another thing--it is known that those who abuse animals are likely to abuse humans as well. What a fine upstanding role model to play for the Eagles! Do you want your kids to be just like Vick?

Michael Vick has served his time.

What bothers me is that none of us are perfect. What he did was despicable but what if everyone who is posting on this board had the curtain pulled away from them? What would we find behind that curtain? Would we find child molesters, domestic abusers, what?

Vick’s misdeeds are revealed for all of us to see but remember, thou who cast the first stone. We all have skeletons in our closet but usually those bones fall out of our closet in private – not public.

There is more hatred for Vick than Bernie Madoff who ruined generations of lives. Furthermore, the some of the hatred toward Vick is related to his potential to earn a living in a very high tax bracket. If he worked in a warehouse earning $12.50 per hour, the disdain for him would be less.

Over $100 million dollars lost and two years in prison…Vick has paid a huge price, let him be.

If he had not been a celebrity, he would not have 'done time' at his MANSION! Give me a break. That's not doing time. Any man who can do those things to an innocent animal is not a real man. He's sick. And not capable of remorse. Boycott every single corporate sponsor.

Code -- Oh come on. You would have to look long and hard to find anyone capable of doing what Vick did, no matter how many curtains you pulled aside. MOST people you meet are not criminals. What he did was so BEYOND THE PALE, a lot of people are just not ready to forgive him. Money has less to do with it than you think. It was the NATURE and SEVERITY of the crime that people cannot forget.

I believe in second chances. I believe people learn from their mistakes, but to drown, electrocute, and hang innocent dogs for underperforming is sick. People like Vick murder people. He didn't need the money because he was the highest played player in the NFL. He did this purely out of enjoyment. He is a sick person. I have owned dogs all my life and they are the most loving creatures that provide unconditional love. These pit bulls he murdered were trying to please their master and in return he kills them in the most heinous way. Not only did he kill these innocent dogs in the most brutal and heinous way he didn't need the money. This guy should not be let lose into our society. He's a despicable human being and I will never see he as any other way.

ho hum    

Vick's behavior was from faulty character, not "cultural". Torturing and murdering animals for the amusement of pathetic so-called men, doesn't deserve to be reward by multi-million contracts to go back to playing football. If he got a job cleaning out kennels for the rest of his life, it would be more impressive. Coudn't give a rats how much time he served.

The last few pages of current posts here looks like 'Vick's paid posters' are out in droves now.

The first pages of responses made a whole lot more sense.
Vick is an a-hole!
