All right NO ONE on the planet denies what a scumbag loser piece of turd Dickie is. But what is peoples beef with Mickey? Remember the saying you can pick you friends but not your family. Who doesnt have at least one scumbag family member? Mickey loves ya kid!

No matter what the past was, Mickey has taken advantage of a second chance. I just hope he himself doesn't get taken advantage of by George Y. I have heard nothing but horror stories about this lowlife, he makes Dicky looked like a saint Your right on the money "Micks Corner"!
Let's keep the eye on the prize and make sure Mickey gets his due but also doesn't get screwed while doing so. Didn't they ask George to step down from Saint's? Hopefully some one steps in so Mickey or Mickey Ward charties get their share and it doesn't do in Georges pocket.

Holy Roller, if you're so spiritual, you should ask the lord why Mickeys business associate George Y misled a local church out of donations that were raised at a Wicked Irish event rather than watching for tattoos.

Don't know Micky, never saw him fight but this is a great story...the kind America likes. I do know that Wahlberg and Bale are great actors and this movie is going to go the distance...it will be a contender for an Oscar. In the end, it does not matter whether or not you like or dislike Micky and Dickie. The movie going publis will decide that. I wish them well.

You idiot posters who saliver over EVERY article over Micky and Dickie just to post hateful things are sickening. Get a life. I have read every article because I am interested in this film and want can't wait to see a movie but if there was a movie I did not want to see I would not read every single article just to post nonsense hate. Get a life you haters. We have ALL screwed up in our life so please all stop like you have not. At least these two brothers have now done some real good with their charity work. They were also both really talented. Can you haters say that you never screwed up and that you do charity work and were talented. I have a feeling that answer is NO
charity? was that it was when mickey was asking for cocaine on house when i lived there and was selling the stuff

Seems ironic for you to be talking about being a moron when you don't even know how to spell the word waste. Waist is what's between your torso and your hips ..
