Whether you think I have sense and am receptive or not makes me no difference to me because it's coming from a person that is totally unreceptive himself. I'd be a fool to take your opinion to heart after seeing all your one sided rants.
Mr. Jim Evans you assume you know what I think and how I feel and you care not to understand and acknowledge my perspective and you dare say I no longer or never really had the sense and necessary receptiveness to debate? While you yourself are totally self absorbed? That's why I told you, go to M. Vick himself and let the one who's done this have it. Does you no good to keep beating a dead horse here to people that had absolutely 0 to do with what Vick did.
It's either the self absorption or you must have an issue reading my friend because I said and I quote "Ok Jim Evans. There just isn't enough Vick can say or do to redeem himself in your eyes WHICH IS YOUR RIGHT to hold a grudge".
Did I or have I once ever said that you or Leah or Barbara or Vick Hater were WRONG in feeling this way towards Michael Vick? No. I understand why you all do. I've just tried to see if you all were willing to look at it from a different perspective, release some of the hate and maybe in the end see the silver lining of a very dark and destructive cloud. That's all.
I have no problem with your viewpoint or opinion. You can believe what you want to about vick just as I can, and will, believe what I want to about him. I also don't presume to know what you think or feel. If I said so previously or led you to think that, I apologize.
We obviously have different opinions regarding vick's motives for his actions and words since his release from prison. I just don't understand why you want to take everything he does and says at "face value" without questioning his motives. I think that is what has led to the misunderstanding. I don't demean you for your views, I'm merely curious as to why you seem to want to believe everything he says and does when everything in his past indicates that he is a liar and a criminal. Vick has only taken accountability, told the truth, and spoken out against dog fighting when his back was against the wall.
In addition, you say there isn't enough vick could do to redeem himself in my eyes. That's not true. I've posted to you, I think twice now, that if he were to monetarily donate to an animal welfare organization in combination with giving of his personal time, especially during the off season, to help or assist an animal welfare organization that in my eyes he may just actually be somewhat remorseful for the atrocities he committed against dogs. To my knowledge he does neither of those two things. And just so I'm clear as to my meaning, periodically standing next to the idiot, wayne pacelle, and saying dog fighting is a terrible thing and I reject it, doesn't qualify in the slightest bit as "giving of his time" to aid in the benefit of abused animals. I'm talking about getting down in the trenches and physically helping some animal welfare organization and he's got plenty of time for that when he's not playing football.
This may come as a surprise but, like you, I also used to be fond of vick and loved to watch him play. Watching him scramble was like watching a running back on crack and watching him make the defensive line, linebackers, and blitzing db's look clueless was very entertaining. But then he was exposed as the sociopathic POS he is and, needless to say, my opinion of him changed.
The last thing I would say to you is I don't let hate affect me like you think it does people. It doesn't guide my actions and it doesn't own me. I don't know about you but I can hate someone/thing and still act and think in a rational manner.
