Michael Vick appears on 60 Minutes As the Apology Tour Continues

Tonight Michael Vick was interviewed by James Brown of CBS Sports.  What is becoming more apparent is there really is nothing Vick can say to satisfy his critics. For the rest of the football season he will be asked the same questions and he better not flinch when he answers.  The other thing that I have learned is if you say Vick has served his time now let him work you too are also accused of sanctioning his acts of cruelty. So when Brown sat down with Vick one had to wonder would he simply ask questions or would it be another opportunity to see if Vick was truly remorseful or was his remorse generated by the need for money? Brown immediately questioned whether Vick was sorry about the loss of his career or what he did to the animals?Vick claimed he was more sorry about what he did to the animals. Even Brown had to do a follow up on this one. Vick lost a $135 million dollar contract plus a lucrative endorsement with Nike. So when he said he cried many nights in prison we can logically conclude some of those tears were for the loss of income. Vick has apologized for his actions and promised to work with the Humane Society as they tour schools educating children on the care of animals. Brown asked whether he was speaking from his heart or were we hearing Team Vick. Team Vick is comprised of lawyers, image consultants and agents. Vick assured him that he was conveying the sentiments of his heart. I hope that is true, but I am glad he now has a Team Vick. If he had received good counsel years ago instead of surrounding himself with a posse of adoring yes men he might never have gotten himself into this situation.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    I hope that Vick has learned from his mistakes and just focuses on rebuilding his career.

    I think that Michael Vick should now be judged on what he does from this point forward. He has served his time in prison, he has community service to do and only his future actions will validate weather he’s learned a lesson.
