John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal has posted on his Twitter page a few of the quotes from Mike Vick’s upcoming interview with James Brown on 60 Minutes.
Said Vick on dogfighting: “It’s wrong, man. . . . I feel, you know, some tremendous hurt behind what happened.”
As to his decision to continue to be involved with it: “I should have took the initiative to stop it alI. . . . I didn’t — I didn’t step up. I wasn’t a leader.”
Asked whether he’s more concerned that his career was hurt than that dogs were hurt, Vick said, “I mean, football don’t even matter.”
Finally, here’s a brief excerpt of the interview. As far as we can tell, it looks like Brown comes after Vick aggressively, but professionally.
