Michael Vick

Pumps Up Nate Dogg's Son

12/1/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Mike Vick and Nate Doggs Son
Michael Vick just made another deposit in the karma bank ... 'cause dude inspired a young dogg -- Nate Dogg's son -- by reaching out to talk football and family this week.

Here's how Vick connected with Naijiel Hale -- a football stud at Lakewood High, outside Los Angeles.

Naijiel's mom entered him in a Vick giveaway contest on Facebook by telling the Eagles QB ... her son is a huge fan of his, and "a sophomore starting DB (defensive back) with awesome grades :)"

Couple days later Vick personally responded with an email to Naiji, saying ... "Congratulations on a good season and thank you for the support." Naijiel told his hero, "Its been a hard year with my dad passing," and added he and Nate Dogg used to watch Vick play every game.

A rep tells TMZ, Vick decided to contact Naiji after reading about his H.S. football success -- leading the league in interceptions -- despite his father's death in March.

In his last email Vick said, "Sorry to hear about your father but glad to see you're being strong and keep achieving."

Now, if he can just get back on the field for the Eagles.

Vick is s*** and he can never make enough deposits to undo the torture he put those dogs through. The karma will just keep on coming.

It kills me when I still hear people judging him over past offenses in which he served his debt to society. Yet, these same critics still approve of the slaughter of pigs,chickens,cows, etc.... to fill there fat ass bellies!!!! Fake - Ass Hypocrites!!!!

What micheal did to dogs was very wrong. He paid his debt to society and let's give him a second chance like we would want society to give us a second chance. He who has never sinned let him throw the first stone. Now if he messes up again...

"...Naijiel's mom entered him in a Vick giveaway contest on Facebook by telling the Eagles QB ... her son is a huge fan of his...". That is some mother the kids got, eh? Hey mom, you might want to reconsider the guidance you offer your child, in regards to role models. Idiot.

I don't care what "nice things" Vick is doing. He is still truly hated by millions for abusing defenseless animals.I do not and will not ever buy Nike products again as they continue to provide him with clothing. I say lets pull all of Vicks teeth out with no anesthesia then put a big steak in front of his face. What a monster!! Luckily, that poor innocent dog survived and now has a good home. No rehab for Vicks image!! Rest assured M.Vick you will surely see the fires of Hell when you die. No pearly gates for you!!

Vick has a VERY long line of disturbing and sociopath type behavior. Have any of you "fans" of Vick actually read the court do***ents? Have you read "The Lost Dogs" by Jim Gorant? This "man" knowingly have herpes to at LEAST one woman & she took his ass to court & he settled (BIG SURPRISE)! Vick was NEVER convicted of animal cruelty, if he would have been his sentence would have been closer to 60 yrs! This "man" has admitted to being lazy & complacent on the field, he screams & flips off fans, lies to detectives, coaches, fails a polygraph & fails a drug test while awaiting trial! WAKE UP AMERICA! This isn't someone who's "paid" a debt to society...he ONLY does court ordered speaking arrangements. This "man" is no role model, he didn't just run a red light, he tortured, beat, hung, shot & electrocuted innocent dogs that loved and trusted him...including his children's pets!!! If you still admire & forgive him after reading all of that, you are just as morally bankrupt as him!

I just looked at all the dogs that were rescued from this ********* property at Best Friends sanctuary. Read their stories, saw their scarred faces, and tried to imagine how any miserable excuse for a human being could be so cruel. You deserve to be tied to the back of a truck and dragged down the highway for about ten miles. You and every other sicko who enjoys the horrid cruelty of dog fighting.
