My Take On Michael Vick and his Dog Fighting September 4, 2007

Posted by screaminglunatic in Uncategorized.

There has been alot of knashing of teeth over Vicks dog-fighting stint, his suspension from the NFL and how in some way this is all really just a misunderstanding. Some have floated the idea that this is a cultural thing and that in reality it is no different than hunting, fishing or being a carnivore.

If this is a cultural thing, then banning it from our culture is a good idea. The reason that this is different from other sports mentioned here is, there is a strong sadist element to all of it. When you hunt or fish, ultimately it is so you can eat. What Vick did, was for the pure thrill of watching dogs kill each other and if they didn’t, he would step in and gladly do the job. Michael Vick is a sadist.

There is a lot of money in dog fighting. I think that is one of the main reasons it is as popular as it is.

I came here to add a Happy Birthday comment — sorry it has to be to this particular entry!!
