of course Nike will go on. By boycotting people are trying to make a point to Nike. Those of us with a moral conscious don't want to see Vicks face on their ads. So until they use a respectable athlete to represent them, we are not going to support Nike. Its pretty simple. No one thinks that Nike will go out of business because of this, but they are seeing how disgusted people are by Vicks actions. Its everybodys god given right to stand up for what they beleive is right. If animal abuse is an issue that doesn't bother you, than that tells everyone something about you, and so be it.

No more NIKE's for me either!! Dog fighting is a hideous form of animal abuse.Dog fighting is run by the criminal element of society,
who are not only involved with illegal gambling, but also
the sale and possession of drugs. Dogfighters & spectators have a history of violent and criminal Behaviour
towards people.
Family dogs/puppies, cats/kittens and rabbits that are stolen from backyards are either hung up in front of the dog, who then mauls them to death, or, they are confined in a cage on a "treadmill" in front of the dog, who is encouraged to chase it, then as a reward for its hard work, the dog will be permitted to capture and kill the confined animal.
Please be aware!!
Pets that are taken from "FREE TO GOOD HOME" ads, may also be used for this purpose.

I applaud Nike for standing up for something our society was built on and that a man is innocent till proven guilty. It's funny to me how some people say i'll never buy Nike products again, Why? Michael Vick has not been convicted of anything. Don't let the media dictate what you do with your money. Whether you admit it or not your negative opinion of Michael Vick is based on negative journalism by certain media outlets. None of you know Michael personally and have no idea of the type of person he really is.

I like Nike shoes but I will not be buying another pair until a more respectable person is representing them. Animal abuse is horriable and I just don't like Vick. His behavior is horriable and shouldn't be rewarded.
