There was a column on the Sunday sports pages in Bay Area News Group newspapers headlined, “Vick could be a dynamic fit in the Raiders’ offense,” and a sports story just below the column, “Could ex-Falcon Vick join Raiders out of prison?”
Both thought Vick would fit right in and be a “dynamic” addition to the Oakland Raiders pro football team.
There’s even an on-line poll at http://www.ContraCostaTimes.com asking “Would you like to see the Raiders acquire Vick?”
I wonder what the volunteers at the hard-working non-profit pit bull rescue organization, Bad Rap — http://www.badrap.org — would have to say about that? Or the other pet rescue organizations in the Bay Area? Or the people in the Bay Area who care about dogs and the humane treatment of animals?
Even as we speak, Bad Rap and a few other organizations are still trying to find homes for the very pit bulls Michael Vick abused in his dog fighting ring.
They have a lot of time and effort and love invested in these dogs … and I don’t think they’d take too lightly to having the man who abused these fine animals being brought to the Bay Area, signed up for millions of $$$$ to play for the Oakland Raiders and then lavished with attention and adulation because he knows how to throw a ball.
It will be interesting to see what happens if all this comes to pass.
I’m not sure even Al Davis want’s to step in the middle of this one … but then again, you know Al Davis … he’s always stepping into stuff … and not always by accident. /Gary
