Let’s think about this logically. You are a person that is upset that Michael Vick engaged in a dog fighting ring, that murdered animals, so the way you express your frustration is by threatening to kill someone’s family. Now you tell me who is worst person? Joe Bartolo told me this afternoon the signing was postponed after he claims death threats were made against him, his wife Jamie — the owners of JJ Cards N Toys — and their family for organizing Vick’s appearance in October at a local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. Those making the threats were upset the Bartolos would bring Vick to the area. Vick served 18 months in federal prison for running an illegal dogfighting ring. Bartolo told me thousands of threats were coming in from all the country. He even had to shut down the store’s Facebook page. This is getting ridiculous, you don’t have to like Mike Vick, but threatening to kill anyone’s family because he is signing some autographs, make your a sicker person than Vick ever was.

  • I don't condone the death threats...but at least they were forewarned and were able to cancel the signing for his safety. The dogs however, never knew what hit them. One of the best stories I have heard in relation to what he did is how many of the dogs were rescued and are now in loving and caring homes where they are fed and taken care of. Not used like pawns in a barbaric sport where all human participants should rot in hell when they leave this world. I do agree however that those making the death threats are wrong and hopefully are caught and punished.

Michael Vick shaken up again, can he last the season?

Michael Vick needs to come with an extended warranty when he hits the field. Only once in his career has he managed to stay healthy for the entire slate of 16 games. And that was when he was playing in a much different offense. Under rookie head coach Chip Kelly, Vick is required to be more active in the backfield, rolling out and sprinting downfield with the ball. Vick recorded...

Michael Vick Allegedly Test Drove Lamborghini’s Hours Before Chiefs Game (Photo)

I’m not sure test driving sports cars hours before a big game can be classified as irresponsible, but if you’re the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, being photographed test driving cars can definitely cause an uproar. Crossing Broad is reporting that Michael Vick allegedly was test driving Lamborghini’s on Interstate 95 hours before the Eagles huge matchup against...

Marcus Vick Insults Fan’s Mother With Profane Tweet While Defending Brother Michael Vick Again (Photo)

Marcus Vick has been encouraged to stay off Twitter, if not to protect himself from making poor choices, then at least to protect his older brother, Michael Vick, from having to deal with extra silliness (or stupidity). But seeing the Internet attack the elder Vick again during a Monday night loss was apparently too much for Marcus Vick. After going off the deep end last year in...

Eric Berry Says He fulfilled A Dream With Pick Six Of Michael Vick

Michael Vick has been the guy a lot of young NFL players looked up to when they were growing up. Vick left Virginia Tech when a lot of the young players in the NFL were just early teenagers, and I’m sure it’s been a dream for most of them to play with or against him. One of those players was Chiefs star defensive back Eric Berry.  The former Tennessee Vol’s safety grew up...

Sit Em, Start Em – Week Three

Sit Em, Start Em – Week Three Michael Vick – By now it should go without saying that Vick should be an every week starter but many owners landed Vick as their backup QB in single QB formats perplexing the situation. We have Vick ranked as top five fantasy option this week and I will be trotting him out over QB’s I selected earlier in 12 and 14 team formats. Vick, McCoy and...

Chip Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles stock dropping fast

It didn’t take long for NFL defenses to figure out how to stop Chip Kelly. Actually, Philadelphia Eagles QB Mike Vick did it for them. Vick threw two interceptions, including one returned for a TD by Kansas City Chiefs DB Eric Berry. Vick was also sacked five times as Kansas City’s defense disrupted Kelly’s read-option offense. And Vick fumbled the ball away after being sacked...

Thinking 'Bout Thursday - Eagles vs Chiefs

Last night was a classic tale of a football team beating themselves.  The Philadelphia Eagles looked like the better team, offensively (for most of the night), but turnovers will kill you.  First Damaris Johnson muffs a punt and the Chiefs recover and turn it into 3 points, then Michael Vick follows that up with a Pick Six and the Chiefs jump out to a QUICK 10-0 lead.  The Eagles...
