PETA supporters have spoken, and they don't want Michael Vick on the cover of Madden NFL 2012. In the final round of ESPN's video-game cover contest, Vick lost out to the Cleveland Browns' Peyton Hillis.
Hillis' win is a victory for everyone who didn't want to send the message to the millions of children playing the game that someone who has fought dogs is acceptable cover material.
To continue taking a stand against dogfighting, please contact the Android marketing team and ask it to stop offering the cruel Dog Wars app.

I concur with everyone's comments on Michael Vicks position at being convicted on dog fighting. But what I don't understand is why you guy's don't want Michael Vick to make a Living. He has to support his family as well as himself some type of way, & if playing football is the way so be it. I personally don't like the sport myself I can't stand it and I Truly HATE Whenever it comes on T.V.
If Madden choose to place Michael Vick's image on the cover of the 2012 or 2013 or **** even 2014 edition so what it's what they want it's their game must I remind all of you guys that we don't have to buy it. EVERYONE & I do mean EVERYONE does deserve a second and sometimes a Third Chance to make their wrongs RIGHT don't you agree???

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
