ESPN To Discuss Vick And Dog Fighting


On Tuesday, September 25, ESPN will hold a live Town Meeting in Atlanta that will discuss Michael Vick’s case and how it has drastically changed his life and society.

The program will focus on how Vick’s situation has divided Atlanta, whether he was treated fairly, if his apology was sincere, and his chances of playing NFL football again.

The special airing on ESPN, at 6 p.m. ET, on Tuesday will also feature live audience participation and comments. It will address athletes involved in dog fighting, the status of the investigation, the lessons that can be learned, and how Atlanta can move past this issue.

Other discussion topics will be the way Vick was treated by the media, how have the emotionally charged aspects of dog fighting influenced the public, what is the long-term impact for the NFL and did they react appropriately, and can Vick rehabilitate his image and reputation.

    I wonder how the suspected link between Bud Melton’s death in North Carolina and M.Vick will impact the town meeting?

    I wonder if ESPN truly thinks they can help Atlanta “move past this issue?”
    There are MANY folks in Atlanta who will never “move past the issue” as long as dog fighting exists!

    I couldn’t care less whether or not this guy can rehabilitate himself & get his life back together.

    Actually, we should at least thank him for the publicity now focused on this horrific bloodsport, and hopefully, the Vick case will forever serve as a horrible reminder of the cruelty that can be inflicted on animals.

    Is the ESPN discussion tonight Mon? or Tues. at 6 pm?

  4. Dee says:

    It was Tues. night. Can you believe that there were actually people there that thought that he deserved another chance? And that they were willing to look stupid enough to say it on camera?
    I’m here, and Atlanta IS split. There are stupid people, and then there are the rest of us.
