Michael Vick and The Humane Society of the United States attacked in national media outlet.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
While Michael Vick is struggling on the field, an organization named HumaneWatch has gone to great lengths to criticize the NFL QB for now owning a dog, and the Humane Society for supporting Vick’s decision to do so.
They have taken out a full page advertisement in USA Today entitled HUMANE OUTRAGE (enlarged ad HERE).
According to HumaneWatch.org, their purpose is – Keeping a watchful eye on the Humane Society of the United States.
But, they are also counting people’s money which is no surprise because that is what ‘watchdogs” do.
They imply that $50,000 was given to the Humane Society by Vick’s “employer.” I assume they are referring to the Philadelphia Eagles, but because the ad is vague in this respect so they could also mean the NFL.
At any rate, from a freedom of speech p.o.v., they are free to express these views, but from a “get a life” perspective, this is old hat.
From a legal standpoint, Michael Vick served his federal time and continues to pay his debt to society, including maintaining a relationship with the Humane Society, and if any organization wants to donate its money to the Humane Society on behalf of Vick, so be it.
Michael Vick spoke to this on his Facebook page where he says, “I am proud to support the HSUS’s work to protect dogs…”
It is very likely that Michael will deal with this type of disdain for the rest of his days.

IRONIC ending to Vick’s career? Eagles/Falcons
Coming out of the bye-week the Eagles under Andy Reid have yet to lose a game. This week, the task of keeping that record in tact might be the most difficult of the Andy Reid era.

Without a doubt the Philadelphia Eagles are the most desperate 3-3 team the NFL has seen in recent memory.

It’s a volatile situation that has clearly fallen on the...

Like a lot of NFL fans, I am a big fan of the Madden NFL video game franchise. I recently let go of my copy of Madden 2004 that I had stubbornly held onto for eight years. Falcons fans everywhere remember the significance of that edition of Madden: Michael Vick was on the cover and he was wearing a Falcons jersey. Remember how good that felt? Everyone had to give the Falcons respect...

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles face another tough test in Week 8 when they take on the unbeaten Atlanta Falcons in Battle of the Birds Part II. If the defense can take away the middle of the field, they’ll not only win the game, but they’ll cover the one-point spread on the game as provided by SportsBetting.ag.
The Falcons have a dynamic, well...
The first half of the season is coming to an end, and a few key points have become abundantly clear:
Mike Vick is done.
Tom Caughlin hates fumblers.
Jerry Jones is the next Al Davis (in the bad way).
RG3 will have the shortest, most exciting NFL career.
Atlanta is finally good. For real.
Cam Newton isn’t the next RG3.
Having a coach is kind of important.

Since the firing of former Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo last week, we’ve been waiting for the corresponding shoe to drop on offense.
After head coach Andy Reid’s pronouncement that Mike Vick would remain his starting quarterback and that Marty Morhinweg would continue to call plays on offense, we knew that no sizable change were coming on that side...
