IS VICK STILL DEION’S BOY?
Now that Mike Vick looks dead in the water, you wonder what Deion Sanders thinks now. Deion had Vick’s back months ago. Deion went as far as defending Vick and the culture of dogfighting in the Ft. Myers News Press.
Here are some of the highlights:
Deion talked about the money Vick will lose:
“He could lose millions worth of endorsements. Nike has already suspended the release of his new shoe. He could lose millions he was supposed to get from the Atlanta Falcons, if the club decides to cut him. That’s unlikely, but it could happen if he’s convicted or makes a plea arrangement. Or his reputation might wind up so stained that he’s never forgiven in the court of public opinion. That would be too bad for the 27-year-old superstar.”
This is my favorite. Deion explains Vick has a different love of dogs than you and I:
“What a dog means to Vick might be a lot different than what he means to you or I. Hold on, don’t start shaking your head just yet. Listen to me. Some people kiss their dogs on the mouth. Some people let their dogs eat from their plate. Some people dress their dogs in suits more expensive than mine, if you can believe that. And some people enjoy proving they have the biggest, toughest dog on the street. You’re probably not going to believe this, but I bet Vick loves the dogs that were the biggest and the baddest. Maybe, he identified with them in some way.”
Deion said look for the real criminal in this case. Maybe Vick is being victimized and a small player.
Why are we indicting him? Was he the ringleader? Is he the big fish? Or is there someone else? The fights allegedly occurred at a property that he purchased for a family member. They apparently found carcasses on the property, but I must ask you again, is he the ringleader?
Have you ever seen this story? When the story came out, the NFL Network flipped out. Normally, the network will give the column pub but they tried to bury this ASAP.
