    Vile, especially with how he described how they electrocute the dogs. I have zero respect for Vick. Even if he wasn't involved, you damn well better be sure what's going on at your homes, that's for sure. Irresponsible punk.

    No offense, HB, but I hope no one reads that.

    Just sick. I never want to see it or hear about it again, it is against humanity.

    In Sam Sheridan's book "A Fighter's Heart," he devotes an entire chapter to the dogfighting culture. It's interesting, but it turned my stomach a couple of times.

    If the evidence against Vick is anything like what is supposedly being hinted, Goodell has to drop the hammer on him.

    Take a year off, Ron Mexico. Without pay. Yeah, you heard right. Without pay. That is, $13,000,000.00.

    And the first person who suggests that Vick should make PSAs for humane societies, etc etc, needs to be violently flogged. Nobody needs to hear Michael Fucking Vick's thoughts (LMAO) on animal cruelty.

    And that $13M should be donated to anti-dogfighting groups.

    Isn't it blood money, though? In theory, it's a great idea. But doesn't the thought of $13 million coming from Michael Vick seem like a way to bribe to get back in marketers good graces?
  9. It's not blood money if it benefits those who were exploited from it. Rescue groups could do a lot with that money, though it will never happen.

    I almost clicked on this link.

    But I just can't.

    I saw enough on the espn.com OTL piece with the blacked out/slurred speech source. That was enough.

    a) $13M is $13M no matter where it comes from;

    b) If Vick, as from all current indications, is shown to have been knowingly and actively involved, he's gonna have to pay a lot more than $13M to get back in marketers' good graces.

    Aggravated animal torture is probably only a bit ahead of pedophilia and cannibalism on the marketers' list of favorite behaviors.

    Same here. I just can't bring myself to click on it. OTL did enough for me.
