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.
