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.

Going to the Eagles is one more bad decision.

Had he done even a little research, he would have realized that Philadelphia is the LAST place that an animal abuser would be accepted.

Is there anything this guy could do in Alaska?

By signing Vick Eagles is saying that killing and torturing a living this is okay. Is that what we want to teach our children??? A murderer is a murderer in my eyes....I'm no longer an Eagles fan.

You freaking Vick-haters KILL me!!! You act like the man killed Mother Teresa in her sleep!!! Are you serious? Posting numbers to boycott? "He's the worst person alive and should be locked up for life??"!! CMON people!! Open your silly-ass minds....if you want to crucify someone, how bout you crucify someone who killed a HUMAN!! As I said before, I don't condone what Vick did, but damn, he served ALL of his time and he is trying to find his way back to society doing the only thing he knows - football!! It's not like Vick was caught actually KILLING dogs, he funded dog-fights on his property (in a house that he didn't even live in at the time!!)...I have yet to hear OR see where Vick was actually caught KILLING DOGS!!!

You freaks want to pretend that VICK is America's Most Wanted, but there are murders, rapists and people of the like roaming the very streets you want to PROTEST!! Get a freaking LIFE, why dont you?? Geeeezzzzzz....

Andy Reid has sympathy for criminals because both of his sons are criminals and drug users and dealers.
Michael Vicks does not deserve any forgiveness and should work at an animal shelter shoveling dog poo
for a leaving!

There's no punishment severe enough for someone who kills dogs FOR SPORT! 18 months? House arrest? Give me a break. He's a cold blooded killer. Vick should be thrown to the lions (or dogs), not rewarded with a $$$ contract. The Philadelphia Eagles should be ASHAMED! Unfortunately, this speaks to society as a whole these days - anything for money. I hope the Eagles lose more than just games this season!

Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer made some bad decisions, too. Anyone capable of such horrific cruelty is not someone who deserves a second chance. And he's can't be rehabilitated because evil can't be.

The Eagles richly deserve Michael Vick. They've blown more opportunities to either get into the Superbowl or even win it. I live here and after hearning this news today and so very proud not to be from here. This is the kind of city that could hire Vick for their team. And there are fans (including several of my co-workers-shudder) who think this is great, and that he's done his time-blah,blah,blah routine. I not a fan of some of PETA's techniques, but I'll be cheering them on when they will no doubt protest this lame excuse of a sports team. Oh and don't forget when the fans threw ice/snow balls at Santa, or when the fighting in the stadium was so bad that a city judge-Seamus McCafferty donated,donated his time to run a Sunday trial court in the stadium, during the games, so that the knuckle heads being arrested could be prosecuted ASAP.

All you MV haters just go out and join the army in protest. Take your football tickets and give them to the homeless. Instead of going to games go down and protest in front of your congress mans office about the poor conditions at the local VA hospitals in your state which the returning Iraq and Afgan war veterans have to use. Also go and talk to those vets injured who no have to live without those limbs etc. Show how much you hate MV by doing things like this.

Vick-haters and Eagles-haters...get a LIFE!!! How bout you worry about these child-murderers and rapists out here? They live right under your nose, but you ignore them and focus on a guy who funded dog-fighting?? Does anyone else see the ignorance in this?

You could have signed 100 petitions ONLINE trying to get justice for actual PEOPLE who have been murdered and abused!! Instead you waste your time calling 1-800 numbers trying to protest something that you don't have the intelligence to know is not going to be overturned. The Philadelphia Eagles made the decision to give Vick another chance, and they knew what backlash it would bring. But guess what, you retarded azzholes?? Vick is a fantastic football player....HE'S making money...and will make the Philadelphia Eagles ALOT of money in the next 2 years and maybe even SUPER BOWL champs. What the hell are YOU doing??

Oh, I forgot, wasting valuable time commenting on TMZ about a man who could care two rats' asses about you instead of actually DOING something for HUMAN victims!!!
