People say "everyone deserves a second chance...it's time to move on" and "everyone makes mistakes". Vick did not make a mistake; it was a conscious and calculated decision that he knew was wrong. Does he deserve to profit off of heinous and unspeakable crimes against animals. Those of us who speak for animals will not "move on" as Vick is emblematic of a larger problem in a society that shows disregard for the welfare of animals and believes lenient sentences and fines equate to justice. They do not when they led to profiting further from reality shows and more profit.

If people want to idolize him, cheer for him from the stands and wear his jersey, they can do it. We draw the line with a reality show that allows him to profit from his felonies. Let us send a clear message -- if you brutalize helpless animals, you will not be accepted back into society and return to fame and wealth without opposition. Our silence allows the opposite message to be sent. Complacency breeds acceptance. Acceptance leads to continued violence against animals. We do not have to accept things as they are and we will not. The First Amendment grants us the right to oppose and we will exercise that right.

Please help us send a message to the sponsors of this show that we will boycott their products until they end their support of the program. You can click "Share" on this note and post it to your profile page to spread the word. Thank you.

On behalf of the dogs Michael Vick fought, kicked, shot, hanged, electrocuted, drowned, and tortured.

Thank you.

Signed and noted Thanks Simone.This Sick S.O.B should never be allowed to promote himself anywhere ever again after the sickening way he treated animals.Those who persist in this Glorification of A Monster really need to open their eyes to the reality of what they are doing.He was, is now and always will be a disgrace to his profession.

This poor excuse for a "man" has already drawn attention to his character by abusing animals for profit...lets not give him the chance to abuse people for profit.

Thanks for the story Simone. What I find embarrassing is the fact that in 2 days only 18 people have signed!! Activists, where are you? Do we want Vick to profit from his crime of killing and torturing dogs?? Yes, people do deserve a second chance, but he has NEVER shown real remorse for his crimes. The only reason he is sorry is that he got caught.

VICK IS VENOM!!!!!! Where is the second chance for all the animals,( at least the ones we know about,) that he savagely slaughtered.? He deserves a quick kick in the ass off this planet. I hope he gets what he deserves, and it is not fame and fortune. MICHAEL VICK IS A MONSTER DOG KILLER!!!!!! HE IS A COWARDLY, MACHO ,EVIL, SADIST.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vick is nothing more than a piece of "s---" and I can't stand when people feel sorry for him or try to make him a hero! He most definitely is NOT a hero and certainly does not deserve any pity or praise!!!! HE KNOWS WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG AND ONLY FEELS BAD BECAUSE HE GOT CAUGHT!!!

My God, it's too easy for people to get on TV these days. All you have to do is act a fool or do something retchid and the reality show people come running. There's no way in hell this guy should be getting anything, let alone money for a stupid show. He's an evil, selfish, self centered jackass who altho he has plenty of cash, wanted even more from animal cruelty. Now that should really be on tv...

I may have to forgive him but I sure don't have to like him, condone his actions OR WATCH HIM ON TELEVISION! I will NOT allow this jerk or his sponsors make a penny off of me if I can help it! Actually I WOULD pay to watch him ----defenseless in a ring of angry pit bulls who haven't eaten in a while! OOOPS!

I would hate to think that any TV network would even consider paying this man and putting him on TV if even half of what I read about him is true. There have to be standards of some kind. I have noted and signed.

Noted & signed with comment......Michael Vick is looking after 'himself' same as before. But these advertisers are playing into the hands of someone that has been cruel beyond your imagination. He should be donating ALL his money that he gets from this to 'Non kill shelters' Thank you. Thanks for the message Karen B. Also for the story Simone.
