    The food chain just awarded Vick the Sportsmen of the Year award.

    You would be hard pressed to find someone in the USA who didn't know.

    NFL quarterback with Atlanta Falcons
    1st Pick in the NFL Draft

    Arrested for having a dog fighting ring
    Abusing animals
    Killing pitbulls.

    Served 2 years in Jail.
    Owes like 15 million.

    Supposedly turned his life around
    but
    many harbor a deep resentment for what he did.

    The Philadelphia Eagles Football team signed him and last year had a stellar season as the Eagles starter.

    As you can see from the comments on this thread, hiring him for endorsement deals is like drinking poison.

    Many football fans were very vocal about not wanting their teams to sign him, even though he was far more talented than many of the quarterbacks out there.

    Good player, bad person. Who saw the videos of him drowning and electrocuting losing dogs?

    What does his past personal life have anything to do with his sportsmanship on the field over the past season?

    Sportsmanship extends to life off of the field as well.

    Everyone needs to find the facts out 1st. Sponsors do not know who will win the award. Do u think any company would sponsor BET if they knew Vick would win the award? Dont blame Subway for something they dont and couldnt control

    Sportsman of the year. The dog fighting was years ago. Not only did he serve his time for it, but he came back in a big way against the odds.

    Rigggghhhhhttttt. Well enjoy your subway sports fan.

    But while we are at it. Let's reinstate Pete Rose's eligibility, and induction him into the hall of fame!

    His misdeeds are further in the past.

    Right?

    Just had the new "green lantern" turkey bacon avacado today, it was fucking delicious.

    Pete Rose's misdeeds directly involved the game and disrespected what it stands for; that is nothing like making mistakes in your personal life that are wholly unrelated to the game.

    That actually sounds delectable.

    I suppose using marijuana, trafficking marijuana, spreading herpes, fighting dogs, shoplifting, And making obscene gestures to fans just pales in comparison (in your eyes at least). To Pete Rose betting ON the reds as a MANAGER, not a player.

    Say whatever you wish, you'll not convince me that, while in possession of tremendous skills, that Michael Vick has any sort of true sportsmanship or any love for the game, other than money.

    Recreational drug use and sexual activity should have no bearing on how their conduct on the field and towards the game is perceived. Making obscene gestures at fans isn't acceptable because it is directly related to the sport.

    Pete Rose made a mockery of the principles of baseball by reducing it to a gambling routine.
