Only in America can a convicted felon arrested for running a dog fighting ring out of his home land a lucrative reality TV show. This is precisely the deal Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick inked with BET.

The tentative and overused titled is the ‘Michael Vick Project,’ and will celebrate his comeback to the NFL and delve into his back story which will include his 2007 arrest for running a dog-fighting ring and his 18 month prison sentence.

For viewers who prefer exploiting dogs for bloodsport over companionship, the series is scheduled to air in early 2010.

    Only in America is right. This dog-killing cretin should be ostracized from decent society for the rest of his life. Not rewarded with million dollar deals to play a child’s game before adoring fans and now this? There’s no hope for this country.

  2. TOM339 says:

    The fact that the reality TV show is on BET suggests Vick has been repatriated and embraced by the black community and is now a fully respected member of their community.

    I seriously doubt that Michael Vick would’ve been offered such a TV deal by TruTV, or MTV, or ABC, or FOX.

    He’s just too controversial.

    Michael Vick is garbage. He deserves to be fed to a pack of starving pit bulls and devoured alive.

    What?

    You’re saying Vick “has been repatriated and embraced by the black community and is now a fully respected member of their community”?

    I’m an African-American guy and I don’t support him. Maybe I missed the memo.

    Then again, if I’m responsible for Vick, does that mean that white folks are responsible for Glenn Beck? Or that nutjob that killed that security guard at the Holocaust museum? Or–never mind.

    I love reality TV. I’m an unapologetic addict.

    But it will be a cold, God damned day in hell before I ever watched a reality TV show starring this piece of human filth.

  6. McDaddy says:

    I hear the project is going to be more of a documentary than a reality show. I also hear that it’s going to speak the truth about the brutality of dogfighting and how he sponsored, which is worse than actually killing dogs themselves.

    I think people need to step back and see the project, or some of it, before being so critical. As a person who has worked with black inner-city youth, I can tell you that many of them have already embraced Vick, which makes him so important, in my opinion. If any of this documentary can be used– if Vick can be used– to point to sad, bloody tragedy of dogfighting, I say it will have been worth it.

    Vick has been doing well so far in working with the Humane Society in talking against dogfighting, especially around North Philadelphia. Maybe this project will be another way of reaching inner-city youth, a group that agencies like PETA and the Humane Society can’t reach.

  7. Peace Nick says:

    I wish Vick would just go away.

    His contract with the Eagles is an insult to young, talented, unsigned players who would give their eye teeth for a chance to play with the NFL.

    I’m sure a lot of people can look the other way and forgive but not me. His fans and defenders embrace a “they were just dogs, but people” mentality that is just lost on me.

  8. Joe in Colorado says:

    The culture of the NFL is defined by violence against women, rape, baby daddy-syndrome, drug use, drug dealing, pedophilia and illegal gambling. When I was a kid, the NFL was about football and competition. If I had a male teenagers today, I don’t think I would encourage him to look up to these players. Too many of them are street thugs — like Michael Vick.

    Maybe Sicko Vicko can tell everybody the best way to grab a dog by its hind legs and bash its head in until it is dead. Or he can teach all the youths of America, who will be watching him, the best way to rig a noose in order to hang a dog efficiently. He is a sick, sick fucker.

    Tom339,

    I don’t speak for the entire African America community nor do I speak for BET but, as a black woman, I have zero use for Michael Vick.

    My thinking is, BET saw a business opportunity and the jumped to it.

  11. Estacada says:

    Vick is a common thug and felon.

    He doesn’t deserve a reality TV show and he certainly doesn’t deserve a job with the NFL unless he’s cleaning the locker room and the bathrooms.
