The ongoing saga of Michael Vick and what his future holds in Philadelphia got more complicated this week when Marcus Vick decided to spend the extent of Monday Night Football tweeting a defense of his brother and saying he wanted to be traded. Marcus Vick’s entertaining rant, which put the blame on just about everybody but his older brother, led to Michael Vick later apologizing for his younger brother’s outburst. He said he did not, in fact, want to be traded, and he noted that the tweets were “something that I’m really going to have to address.” One can only speculate how Michael Vick planned to “address” the situation, but it sounds like someone told Marcus Vick he was out of line. The younger Vick was back on Twitter on Tuesday morning, apologizing for the whole situation. I love my brother and it’s hard as hell to watch him taking all those shots, but I’m sorry if I offended anyone and definitely didn’t mean — Marcus Vick (@MVFive) November 6, 2012 to put Mike in a tough spot. I’m not only watching as a fan, I’m watching as his blood — Marcus Vick (@MVFive) November 6, 2012 And by “watching as his blood,” Marcus Vick was hopefully referring to his family connection, not seeing his tweet get cut off before he went on to say something like, “watching as his blood … seeps all over the ground because the Eagles aren’t protecting him and should trade him!!!” Marcus Vick appears to have learned his lesson, although it’s worth wondering what part Michael Vick may have had in spurring the apology.

  • mIKE vICK IS STILL PAYING FOR ALL OF THOSE POOR ANIMALS THAT WERE PUT TO DEATH HT HIS HANDS. "crama" IS A STRONG THING. hE WILL BE DONE WITH IT WHEN "carMA" SAYS IT IS SATISFYED AND NOT UNTIL THEN. lETS HOPE THAT HE LEARNED SOMETHING. aS FOR HIS LITTLE BROTHER, HE IS JUST "syupid".....
  • yOU ARE SO RIGHT dAVE.
  • Dave's not here, man. ;)
  • please be quite......I get so sick of people like you always talking about Michael...I HOPE CRAMA comes to you..and you can't spell.
  • Somebody that says please be quite should not talk about somebody that cannot spell. And it is Karma not CRAMA
  • This whole idea is just stupid. They were dogs....whats the difference in slaughtering cows or pigs or shooting deer for fun. One form of entertainment is ridiculed over another. Do Do I agree withit no but neither do I agree with hunting deer. why is the killing of one animal considered sport while another is considered inhumane....whether I'm shot or bit they both hurt. 18mths is and millions of dollars is more than enough retrobution for some dogs. come on dogs. we still have statues of people that killed blacks. If I could save 1 just 1 human over 1800 dogs I'd do it all day everyday without blinking. I seriously think it would take some other people thought which is sad. We were created a higher order than animals

  • A good number of fans stopped cheering because of choosing Vick.
    And the karma thing ... oh yeah it's working full blast.
    Stupid owner Jeff Laurie, a dog owner, is getting divorced; Coach Reid's son od'd on heroin; and the Eagles suck big time.
    Many people picketed the Eagles, myself included. Love seeing Vick POUNDED, and cheering for their opponent to win, EVERY WEEK. A team with zero ethics. Was a life long fan, no more, they disgust me. Please no comments, he served his time, which was only for dog-fighting. I read the indictment, the many forms of TORTURE he personally used on these animals would make you throw-up. A psychopathic sadist.
  • Aparently, the parents raised both of them alike.
  • how do you sit there and attribute all these horrible things to what Vick did and then say "Please no comments?" If you dont want replies than keep your own comment to yourself. BTW, I dont recall a single person "picketing" the Eagles. Safe to say youre a smug idiot and most likely delusional. Bet youve never committed a wrong in your whole life, huh?

  • Karma is tough; dealing with family is tougher. Mike Vick, you rock! Marcus Vick, thank you for supporting your brother.
  • idiot
  • I created an account to tell you guys to just give it a rest, already. Mike paid his due. Stop hating.
  • shut up
  • So if an individual doesn't agree with you, they're an "idiot" and should "shut up"? Wow - your parents must also be proud.
  • He will pay is dues when he burns in hell, which I hope long enough to see.

  • Mike's brother is no better. They are both WORTHLESS. Worst role models. No morals. No backbone. Let the blood spill.
  • When you look at Marcus' college ball at WVU, he is a cut throat, backstabbing piece of *#!t. Must be some real proud parents.
  • Marcus went to VT not WVU, the rest is spot on, thug always in trouble with the law.
  • send him to K.C., we could use some excitement on the field.
  • Marcus went to VT you idiot
  • Everywhere Mike Vick goes they fire the coach... No one can believe that Vick can't live up to the hype. He is a "Coach Killer". Andy Reid has been there 14 yrs and half way through their first year with Vick as starter they wanted to fire the coach. Vick can't win football games because he's too stupid to "Effectively" read the defense. He reads the defense incorrectly then he changes the play and with it the blocking scheme. It's his own fault he's getting hammered. I don't believe Marcus Vick (Expelled from VaTech later Convicted for armed robbery) would tweet that on his own. Of course Vick said he wanted to be traded. He always blames everyone else for his shortcomings. Especially when his audience will agree with him no matter what he says ie; Family.
    He just didn't think Marcus would repeat it outloud. Duhh.
  • cmon we all kno mike vick paid his due, when is he gon get a break
  • when he burns in hell
  • you are all more despicable than Vick could ever be, on here making these disgusting comments...prob the same people that forgave teddy kennedy when he killed that girl cant get over what Vick did...phony
  • I not sure they had parents at least not the kind normal people had. They raised two sons with the morals of a tomato. Come to think of it the brains of a tomato as well
  • Thumper, you are a worthless piece of#@!& if you can talk about another human like that. Life has a way of coming in full circle. Dont be surprised if you get it back. Is your parents proud of everything you have done? And for all those who are talking Karma, be carful, because you all have to pay for something as well!!! I am sure none of you have been perfect! Keep pushing M. Vick, Keep Pushing!!!!
  • I am so sick of Michael Vick! He will never be able to pay for the crimes he committed against the Animal Kingdom. He has no respect for life! He continues to be allowed to play football and live like a King and be overpaid!!! Let him go to a third world country to fight for his life. Let's see what kind of Champion he is under those terms. I am sick of people overlooking criminals and glorifying Monster's like VICK!!!! Football would be better without Michael Vick!!!! Surley there are great football players out there who have better respect for life and are not sleezy criminals...REPLACE THAT MONSTER GET RID OF HIM!!!!
  • I would say Michael Vick has caused himself a big mess...by STINKING SO BAD!!!!!
  • a prime example of Vicks morality. Shortly before the "dog" problems came out there was a game in which a big fright on the field broke out. Vick was on the bench at the time. He put his helmet on, ran out on the field, Hit an opponent in the back of the head, then ran back to the bench and sat down. No matter what "dues" he has paid, he will never pay enough to rise above the level of thug.
