Compounding the further disgrace of awarding this scum of the earth animal torturer/murderer millions of dollars to sit on the bench, Philadelphia Eagles players have unanimously voted michael vick to be this year’s Eagles recipient of the Ed Block “Courage” Award. The award is given annually to a member of each NFL team, who is considered to best exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.
“Sportsmanship and courage”? “Sportsmanship and courage”? Sportsmanship and courage in getting CAUGHT running a for-profit criminal enterprise, causing pain, suffering and DEATH to untold numbers of helpless dogs, over a period of years, being sent to PRISON, and then being rewarded with a new contract for MILLIONS OF DOLLARS? Since when does being caught committing numerous felonies and then stepping back into a world of privilege and adulation constitute courage, let alone sportsmanship?
Remember, this award was voted on by the players, who gave it to vick unanimously. What kind of idiots do the Eagles have running around in those uniforms?
As aptly stated in a PETA Blog post, if there were an award for Cruelty, give that to vick, unanimously.
