Michael Vick rejoins Nike : it appears that a year off is enough for Nike.

Gosh, and I thought I couldn't dislike Nike more.

I could've sworn I heard on ESPN or read somewhere yesterday that he said he's giving the entire paycheck to the national ASPCA or something, but I can't seem to find any info about it. If that's the case, I think it's kind of telling that the media outlets aren't mentioning that.

I haven't heard anything about Vick giving all the money to the ASPCA, but that is an incredible omission by the media if that is, in fact, true.

I don't think the bankruptcy court would like that very much. That money is not his to do whatever he wants with it.

Nike: We Hate Animals. Which is funny as we treat our sneaker makers LIKE animals...

Nike: We Hate Animals.

Aren't most of their shoes made of leather? But hiring Vick is what makes them animal haters?

Shit, they hire Roethlisberger and he raped humans with neither remorse nor consequence. Vick's ten times better than that.

If this is the moral line you've drawn with regards to Nike, I sincerely believe you've not been paying enough attention.

If it's one more on a long list of things that prevent you from buying their products, well, at least they're consistent in their sociopathy.
