He originally claimed that he didn't know his family members were keeping 46 pitbulls on his property. What a sicko.

Why would anyone watch dogfights. Now catfights, that might be interesting. Or maybe Chinese Fighting Fish.

Actuall you are very wrong about the pit bull, if you dont think so reffer to pittbulls for dummies and it will tell you about the pitt bulls temperment and not what you have been trained to think. Pitt bull are trained to be mean. Now they have the natural dog instinct, anydog if pushed will bite.

Does anyone watch Animal Cops? They bust up this sort of thing all the time and it's sick. These dog fighters use other types of dogs to "bait" the Pitts before they fight. They will throw in some sweet Golden Retriever and after the dogs get a taste for blood, then they fight for real. Sometimes these people will steal somebody's dog from their backyard for bait. It makes me sick and small children often watch this happen. Friggin' gang bangers need to get a life, how sad for them that this is what they do for "entertainment." They're apparently too stupid and ignorant to think of anything better to do with their pathetic lives.

Um rather you know it of not, black "gang bangers" are not the only ones that fight dogs you idiot. There are many young white males that fight pitts and other types of dogs for that matter. So please know what you are talking about before you say stupid stuff.

That happened to me and my mom's dog when I was about 4. I didn't know at the time, but some of the people that lived in the building next to us were dog fighters. At the time she told me that "daisy" ran away. A few years ago she told me that maintenence men found her and a few other dogs dead and chewed up in an abandoned unit at the other end of the projects. At least what was left of her. Apparently she still had her collar on. She was a small, hyper dog. Probably a little bigger than the "Taco Bell" dog.

This is what Vick needs to become:

He needs to be attacked by a pack of rabid golden retrievers.

The guy gets a massive NFL salary. Why does this guy need to do this kind of thing? Pleeeeeze! What in Gods' name possesses a human to watch that sort of inhumane activity? There is something mentally wrong with a human that can sit there and watch innocent animals tear each other apart for one night and die!

Though I may be in the minority, I feel that dogfighting is wholesome, educational, family entertainment for kids of all ages.
There's nothing quite like taking the wife and kids to an exciting Saturday night dogfight, watching the glee in my children's eyes while two vicious, hulking canine beasts, their muscles rippling with adrenaline, tear each other to pieces, fighting to their glorious deaths in the pit like latter-day animal gladiators.
The excitement builds when the dogmen arrive after sundown; often driving expensive SUVs pulling custom trailers containing their prized fighting dogs. One by one the contenders are led from the trailers while others look on in admiration, some among them wishing that they too were dogmen. Others size up the contenders, determining the amount they will place in bets.
Bookmakers, quickly jotting odds on small chalkboards, start collecting money as enthusiastic bettors yell, "Two thousand on Imperator," or "Put me down for five hundred bucks on Lucky Lady."
Victory or death is the nature of the sport of dogfighting, each dogman, thousands invested in the breeding, training and care of his fighter, petting and giving his beloved champion animal encouragement before they are placed in the pit. A referee is in the pit before the fight; his job is to start the contest by placing the dogs within fighting distance of each other, once the fight starts, the referee exits the pit and joins in the amusement.
Illustrating the educational value of the family sport of dogfighting, one evening while watching two dogs in a particularly bloody match, my youngest son asked me what were those purplish veiny things hanging from the belly of one contender.
"They're intestines son," I replied, admiring the dying canine's gameness as it continued to fight on, unto the death. At another match, my eldest son smiled and watched in amusement while a dog called King Odin, blinded in both eyes during the fight, clumsily latched on to the right foreleg of the opponent. Using all his strength, King Odin clamped down and bit the leg off at the shoulder, tearing the joint from the socket. Staring in astonishment with the rest of the crowd, I had never seen such incredible power come from the jaws of a game bull terrier. Curiously, at the end of the match King Odin, though blinded and ostensibly retired due to his injuries, was declared the winner, while the opposing animal, a three year old, four time champion bitch called Silver Streak, bled to death in one corner of the pit.
Another plus with regard to dogfighting is the community atmosphere promoted by the sport; friendly neighbors and fellow church members all gathering around the pit for conversation, good food, and entertainment. Many of the wives make tasty dishes to bring to the dogfights, and cold kegs of Coors and Budweiser are always a welcome addition. The local police chief often brings these beverages, along with coolers of soft drinks for the kids.
Dogfighting has been a part of American culture since before the beginning of the Republic, and is as American as apple pie and the 4th of July. Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere and Benjamin Franklin were avid dogfighters, each keeping kennels of ferocious canines for their amusement, often pitting beasts from their kennels against each other in exciting contests of animal strength and endurance.
Drawing on the long history of the sport, I feel that some soul searching is in order, and after careful debate and reflection, it should be proposed that dogfighting be again made legal in all fifty states and territories of the United States of America.
Great post.

Maybe Vick can come to Louisiana and take the place of his sorry cousin Aaron Brooks at the Saints. Then he can partake in the 'wunderful' sport of cockfighting. More bloodsport to feed his devious desires! FYI, LA finally outlawed cockfights as of next year, the last state to do so. However, it is deeply engrained and will probably continue in some areas.

Any of you sick SOB's that enjoy watching dogs fight, and get your kicks out of talking about it or watching it, either way, you all should be hung with Vick. Dog fighting is abusive, torturous, cruel, and everything else. Anyone that likes it, are sick warped nasty azzholes bastards that should be put away. People like you would watch your own kids fight. You all need to get a life and whitten up.
