Dick's Sporting Goods

At least one corporation that stood to profit from Michael Vick’s NFL reinstatement has decided to put morals before money.

While the NFL rushed to reinstate Michael Vick the second his ankle bracelet hit the floor, sporting goods giant Dick’s has made it clear that it cares more about animals then it does its bottom line by refusing to sell replicas of Vick’s Philadelphia Eagles jersey in any of its stores nationwide.

We hope you’ll join us in letting Dick’s know that it made the right decision by calling 1-877-846-9997 (dial 3 to speak to the operator). And if your dialing digits still feel like dancing, you can also call and complain to the NFL.
