Here is the Michael Vick press conference and part of his statement, after he plead guilty to Federal dogfighting charges.
RICHMOND, Va. — Michael Vick apologized to the NFL and the Atlanta Falcons on Monday for “using bad judgment and making bad decisions” and vowed to redeem himself after pleading guilty to a dogfighting charge.
In a statement before the media, Vick said he took full responsibility for his actions. He concluded by saying: “I will redeem myself. I have to.”
Sentencing was set for Dec. 10 and Vick could be sent to prison for one to five years. Vick was suspended indefinitely by the NFL last week.
“First, I want to apologize, you know, for all the things that — that I’ve done and that I have allowed to happen. I want to personally apologize to commissioner Goodell, Arthur Blank, coach Bobby Petrino, my Atlanta Falcons teammates, you know, for our — for our previous discussions that we had. And I was not honest and forthright in our discussions, and, you know, I was ashamed and totally disappointed in myself to say the least,” Vick said.
“I want to apologize to all the young kids out there for my immature acts and, you know, what I did was, what I did was very immature so that means I need to grow up.”
When Vick says his acts were “immature”, I get physically ill! Who the heck is his PR person? Michael Vick’s actions were NOT immature…they were SADISTIC! By torturing his dogs, Michael Vick has put himself into a special category of lowlife. He doesn’t deserve another cent from the NFL, let alone the opportunity to play again. By torturing something, whether an animal or a human being, someone surrenders the benefit of doubt and forgiveness. He is a torturer of a dog(s) and deserves everything that he will get!
