Also along the same topic on ESPN E:60 last night I lost all respect for Lisa Salters. Not that I had a lot for her in the first place, but I always give it up to women doing anything in sports. For her to say before the piece on Donte', " I hate to go there, but Michael Vick didn't kill anyone, he did his time......" Michael Vick did kill dogs on purpose, and on top of that he was gambling illegally, why do some not understand this out there and in the media? Lisa Salters needs to educate herself before speaking on a nationally televised show such as this. Acting like killing dogs is no big deal and STILL talking about it like its no big deal is unacceptable!!! They need to send her on assignment covering Parkour.

"Use me as an example for your dreams..."
That's what Michael Vick said to a group of kids at a Hampton University basketball camp. So the part about killings dogs violently and going to prison should be dreamt about by kids..talk about a nightmare! He then said " He let someone who didn't have my best interests at heart take it all away from me" Ok, so I have tried not to keep commenting because the inevitable is going to happen. He will play, he did do his time, there is not much that can be done about it. I read daily what is going on, what teams are interested, the reports go back and forth. But to blame a LIFETIME of dogfighting and more specifically the 6 years he was in the NFL and should have known better, AND was making INCREDIBLE money..he blames that on one of his boys!? Wow, talk about peer pressure. A man I've never met, yet highly respect, Tony Dungy has become a mentor of Vick's and believes he is remorseful. But is he really? I keep saying to myself talking to kids and using himself as an example NOT to dogfight or be involved in illegal gambling, was more around what I was expecting..but this is not it. This is depressing.
