I will not be getting my sports information from ESPN nor espn.com any longer. They aren't interested in delivering sports content anymore. But they sure are ready to apologize for Vick by telling about what supporters he does have. Common theme: Innocent until proven guilty.
Guess what? Everybody is in agreement that he deserves a fair trial, but that doesn't mean we have to be idiots. It is 2007. We have the ability to access the same information judge and jury has.
I read the indictment. I read the sworn summary of facts. (also includes a reference to a 3rd witness that had a dog fight vick's while vick was present).
There is so much in there you would have to be an idiot to think he didn't know, like he said, He was taken advantage of.
That makes him a liar as well. Learn "no comment" don't lie.
That doesn't mean I dont want a fair trial for him. That doesn't mean I dont want a fair trial for him. HE DESERVES A FAIR TRIAL.
But I'm not going to apologize for having more access to be able to make a better informed decision than those who grew up in the 50's and 60's.
I believe racism dies when the people that lived it are gone.
My daughter is 8 and I already see it shrinking to almost nothing compared to what I experienced. Why? IMHO I believe its because of what shes exposed to. If she is exposed to racism less, how is she supposed to learn it?
Does it ever completely end? no. But I am sick of it and it being shoved down my throat. Thanks ESPN. I'll miss you Bill Simmons.
Sorry for my bitchfest. Foxsports here I come.
