Jets Fan Sells Season Tickets to Protest Vick Signing

Written by Alisa Mullins | March 31, 2014

Sad Pit Bull Melissa with Face ScarsMichael Vick may have thought that people were starting to forget about his 19-month stint in prison on dogfighting charges, but judging by the reaction of fans to his trade to the New York Jets last week, people who care about animals have long memories.

Not once during any of Michael Vick’s carefully orchestrated interviews since his release from prison has he ever shown any emotion or remorse over the torture that he inflicted on the dozens of dogs he forced to fight to their deaths. In fact, he lied to PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk‘s face about how much he “loved” his “family pets” before it was later revealed in government documents that he took delight in tossing those same “pets” into the pits with fighting dogs and laughed as he watched them being torn apart. His only regret, when pressed by a reporter after saying “None,” was that he’d had to serve so much jail time!

Now that fans are howling with outrage—one protest petition has more than 5,300 signatures so far—the Jets’ front office may soon have some regrets of its own.

PETA member Cary Mabley is one person who will never forget that Vick admitted to drowning, electrocuting, and hanging dogs, among other atrocities. When the lifelong New York Jets fan learned that Vick had been traded to her favorite team, she wasn’t about to sit on the sidelines and do nothing.

“My family and I were so outraged when the Jets signed Michael Vick that we immediately canceled our season tickets,” says Cary. “I am going to do whatever I can to let the Jets organization know that they have made a huge mistake by signing this dog killer.”

    F*&k Vick…and the Jets.

  • Debra greene says:

    Michael Vick is a disgrace to humanity, and those who want to profit from him,like the Jets, should be ostracized too.

  • Tina says:

    He Should not allowed to play his game, but what’s more important is THAT HE SHOULD NEVER EVER BE ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY DOGS or any PETS EVER EVER Again…….

  • Binkybear says:

    A man like that doesn’t deserve to play a game he enjoys, when he played with the lives of so many Inocent animals. This man has a serious problem that needs serious attention. I would do everything in my ability to make sure he doesn’t forget the atrocious things he did to such innocent animals. What ever team he plays for is at the bottom of my list!!!!!

  • Diane says:

    He’s a dog killer and will always have that label! He’s a low piece of crap! I would NEVER go to a game he’ll play in!NEVER NEVER NEVER!!!

  • I think it would really help the cause if Season Pass holders donated the tickets to animal rights groups so that there would be a constant presence or even for one game a large scale protest from animal rights abnd welfare groups. this is one issue that both animal rights and welfare can agree on and make a difference!

  • Ugh says:

    Michael Vick should play for the dalla$ cowboy$ (note the dollar signs and absence of capital letters) where he’ll fit right in with all those other corporate criminals from South America’s Team!
