Michael Vick brings cock fighting to Knoxville, gets Nike endorsement back

NIKE has officially re-signed Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick to endorsement deals.  “We feel that our actions dropping Vick four years ago, might have been rash,” say NIKE officials, “While we don’t condone his behavior, we feel that he has made positive changes to better himself off the field.”

About his 21 month stint in prison, Vick says, “You meet a lot of people in prison. Lots of them have really good ideas. I’ll be putting some of the better ones to good use.” His next venture? A Knoxville-based cock fighting ring. It’s not a felony here in Tennessee, more of a form of tourism. People come from all over to watch, they stay at local hotels and eat at local restaurants. “I’m really doing Knoxville a favor, bringing all these people in. I’m helping to boost the economy,” states Vick, “Yeah, some people don’t like it, they think it’s inhumane, but what the heck?” When asked how NIKE felt about his new endeavor, Vick said, “Don’t ask, Don’t tell. That’s what NIKE advised me to do. They don’t ask and I don’t tell. We’re all good.”

  1. Is this for real…I thought it was a sick joke. You got to be kidding. Nike, what kind of morals do you have??? I have not bought any Nike products since you resigned that low life and will not in the future. I used to be a Nike fan. Michael Vick is continuing to treat animals inhumanely and that’s ok with you. The company will pay for it’s stupidity.

  2. Nice going Nike.Typical corp greed at work.Vick would still be involved in dog fighting today if he never got caught.Never admitted involvement.His apology was self serving.He is a POS and always will be.

  3. It may not be a felony, yet, but it is a misdemeanor. So, it is still an illegal activity. If this is for real, it shows Vicks true colors.

  4. This guy is such a piece of sh*t! Way to go Nike! And way to go Knoxville, way to allow this garbage into your city and let him act like he’s doing you a favor. This guy is pathetic!

  5. Dear Nike,

    I hear that Vick didn’t perform so well in his last game. Perhaps he isn’t going to be the golden ticket you thought he was going to be. Now this is going to get out, and well….oh so sad. All I had to do was put a nice little threat to bring the pit bull rescue people along with their dogs down to the store where I had recently purchased my Nikes and they gladly refunded my money. Hmmm…I wonder how many pitbull rescues are out there could we do an Anti-Nike day infront of your businesses? Perhaps rotating? The power or social networking and all. Hmm…and bring all those pit bulls that are locked up in cages waiting for homes, they’d be happy to be on the picket line. I would also suggest that you let “Mr.” Vick know that if he doesn’t play any better, you may have to soak him down and attach a car battery to his ass. (oh just in case you don’t know what I mean, like what he did to his dogs when they didn’t perform, electrocute them). Sometimes we have to spell these things out for people who make inane decisions to support a thug and put him in role as a model for our kids to look up to. I encourage any player on any other team to take this BAS$*#( down whenever you can. Make him bleed. Because scum like him will get it in the end. He may be all “cocky” now, but it will bite him in the ass one day and he’ll wind up in jail perhaps he could become roomies with OJ. I wonder what Wayne Pacella from HSUS has to say about this new endeavor of his. I’d be very interested in knowing.

  6. i no longer wear nikes nor do i eat subway since they both think his behavior is ok buy giving him more $ . i just wanna ask nike, why is it ok for vick to kill dogs but not ok for tiger to screw around with a bunch of chicks? also how can the nfl be ok with shunning oj for crimes he did after he was no long playing but give vick millions for crimes he did while he was pretending to be a role model for our kids?

  7. Nike should be ashamed to say the least~The NFL also~This THUG should be Stopped once and for all~BUT Why would he, he is still making the big bucks…I can ONLY hope he gets spurred in an artery like another man did not so long ago~Bless these poor animals~

  8. he is not rehabed. he is just as bad as ever how does the human society think of his new thing. he is gross and so is nike will never buy another pair.

  9. He should be fired from football as well. This just teaches whatever young people that choose to look up to this kind of scum that you can get away with cruelty. He can’t be much better to the people in his life.

  10. As long as Nike and the Eagles continue to feed the scum bage big money the will continue to use animals for his pleasure. The sad pert, some of the kids that watch sports think he’s a hero.
    I was a Eagle fan but no longer also I’ll never buy NIKE foot wear again. There as bad as Vick.

  11. Once a thug, always a Thug, a Leopard can’t change its collars, and neither can the Scum “Vick”
