Michael Vick wishes he had listened to his mom

Eagles backup quarterback Michael Vick arrived at training camp today and spoke briefly with reporters, expressing regret about the birthday party that exposed him to renewed scrutiny after one of his dogfighting co-defendants was shot.

Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that Vick said he should have listened to his mother and had a private party, rather than selling tickets and advertising the event publicly.

Vick also said that when he talked to Eagles coach Andy Reid about the shooting, “it wasn’t a pleasant conversation.”

Local authorities in Virginia say they know who committed the shooting but can’t prosecute because victim Quanis Phillips isn’t cooperating. Vick said he heard about the shooting from a friend, 15 or 20 minutes after it happened.

Vick also said he knows he’s on his last chance, and that he wants to talk to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and “look him in the eye” when Goodell visits Eagles camp next week.

    He should have listened to her, she has done such an excellent job up to this point.
    Just look how Marcus turned out…

    She? Meaning his mom? Or did you not proofread this? Come on man…….lol

    Let me be the first to say – Mike – you’ve always been a worthless, classless thug POS and you always will be a worthless, classless thug POS. I cannot wait until somebody lays you out on the field and while you’re convulsing on the turf, perhaps then you’ll feel a wee bit of the pain and suffering you caused those animals. It would probably be too much to ask that both of your legs be snapped like a Theisman’s in the process as well, but I’m feeling daffy

    This guys a ghetto loser. He won’t listen to anybody. He’ll end up in jail again.

  7. Smash33 says: Jul 26, 2010 5:03 PM

    You really think he should listen to his mother? She raised two sons that turned out to be criminals and probably illiterate. She shouldn’t be giving advice to anyone.

    is Vick related to Terry Glenn now?

    Look him in the eye? What does that mean?
    His actions have no consequence as long as he “looks into Roger Goodell’s eyes”.
    Folks, this is a man that will never get it.

    I thought this was his last chance? So, ok, NOW it’s his last chance? Ala Steve Howe..

    I should have listened to my mommy!!!! How old are you Michael? I see not everyone is born with common sense. I think this guy needs to go! He had his chance and he blew it.

    “Vick said she heard about the shooting from a friend, 15 or 20 minutes after it happened. ”
    That’s what Pacman said too, but he wasn’t characterized as a chick haha

    quote: he wants to talk to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and “look him in the eye” when Goodell visits Eagles camp next week.
    So that way Vick can say that he knows of nothing out of the ordinary at his property in Virginia and that there is definitely not dog fighting goning on there.
    Yeah, like Goodell will believe anything that Vick says after that day when he “looked him in the eye.”

  14. shake&bake says: Jul 26, 2010 5:15 PM

    Well i was right last year when i said this guy can’t stay away from trouble and he would be in trouble again within a year. I guarantee you he will be out of the NFL this time next year and probably back in prison within 2 years. The guy is just to stupid to understand the situation. And staying out of trouble just is not in his nature.
    Yeah and what look him in the eye and lie to him again ? Im sure the Commish will appreciate that.

  15. MasterShake says: Jul 26, 2010 5:18 PM

    Wise woman. It’s easier to cover up shootings at a private party unlike holding one in public. Still seeking advice from Mommy and holding B-day parties. Did he have an ice-cream cake, balloons, and a clown? He needs to be spanked.

    I just want to say this, some of you people have to be some of the nastiest ever, to talk about someone’s mother, from the way some of you sound you could use some motherly advice, absolutely ridiculous. Grow the hell up.

    The only last chance Vick deserves is to say he is sorry before he one of his “friends” bullets between his eyes.

    Maybe his Mom will tell him to pay off his debts instead of hiding assets from the creditors and then she can explain it isn’t good manners to pass along sexual transmitted diseases, as if that even needs to be explained.

    “Vick also said he knows he’s on his last chance, and that he wants to talk to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and “look him in the eye” when Goodell visits Eagles camp next week.”
    Just like when he looked him in the eye and denied having anything to do with dog fighting. Boy does this f-ing scumbag think he is something special!
    and before some capt. obvious chimes in, yes, i am a vick hater. something about doing the crime but not doing the time that bothers me.

  38. Bigbluefan says: Jul 26, 2010 6:51 PM

    Maybe mom was the shooter?
    This women raised two of the most talented morans in the history of the NFL
    Maybe she should have had daddy wear a rubber and then we would not have the Vick boys around.

    Ronnie Mexico is a SOCIOPATHIC thug. HE.WILL.NEVER.GET.IT. He doesn’t know there’s a IT to GET. That is how the sociopathic mind works. They don’t COMPREHEND right and wrong. Add his sociopathic self to the entitlement mentality he was coddled by his whole life for merely being a fast & elusive runner…and this is what you get.
    I just heard that quark brained dope talking about how he spoke with the commissioner and he refers to him as “Roger” like he’s some peer of his. LOL
    Then again I guess he’s already proven that Roger is his bitch since he lets this scum do whatever he wants with no consequence.

  44. Wukong says: Jul 26, 2010 7:19 PM

    Why is it that every story about Vick ALWAYS attracts two or three mouth-breathing morons who scream about “haters” and tell us all that him killing dogs wasn’t that big a deal, despite it being inhumane, illegal, and sociopathic?
    Who are these people? Are they so blinded by some sick hero worship that they can’t see this man for the piece of trash that he is? Is it just trolling? Or are they really THAT dumb?
    Sadly, it may be the last option.
    I will say this- If you defend Vick, you’re unintelligent, uneducated, and little better than he is. Plain and simple.

    Why? He didn’t listen to his father when his Dad told him what he was doing with the animals was wrong, he kept it up for 6 YEARS, why should he start listening to his Mom & Dad now. Wonder how proud his Mom was when he infected innocent, unknowing black women with a disease they will carry forever. I’m sure she was like the rest of the MV defenders, clueless & showing loyalty to a poor excuse for a human being that certainly has never proven he is worth it.
    MV is a heartless, callous POS. He’s soooo full of sh*t in everything he says & does, he would still be torturing & killing hurt, bleeding & defenseless animals if he hadn’t have been caught.

    I just wish Commandant Goodell could/would explain how exactly this convicted felon is allowed to play after violating terms of his parole (and thereby most would think, the terms of his reinstatement) by “associating” with thugs from his dog fighting days, but Big Ben is suspended for 6 games with no arrest, no conviction, and no record. Glad to see the “consistancy” in the head jackass of the NFL. I know I’m bias in every way, but really does this make sense to anyone???Way to go Rog.

    Here is the fundamental problem. An appropriately confident young person does not need to throw a big birthday bash for themselves. It’s narcissistic. These guys are just way too into themselves. Their constant need for attention, to prop up their low self esteem, is what drives them to make the choices they do. Its why they have a posse. Its why they have to be hanging out in clubs all the time. Its why they hit on the ladies. Until they address the core issue, it will not stop. It will simply manifest itself in other forms of inappropriate behaviour.
    I mean seriously, does a “normal” person need to throw out a big party for himself or herself? Especially when that charges admission? Ah, no. No, they don’t

    What Vick did to the dogs was definitely wrong, immoral, and reprehensible, however I cannot understand the fascination that people still have with with him. Vick was punished, did his time, and was released. Further, how many pro athletes can we point to who have had far uglier track records of domestic abuse, weapons, sexual assault, etc. who don’t get nearly the same level of scorn and outright hatred from the public. I can picture people sitting there at their computers, seething with anger every time Vick’s name is mentioned, calling for him to be killed, tortured, and abused. Sorry, but our society has just not deemed dogfighting to be that serious of an offense. A public birthday party might not have been the best idea, but give me a break. Do you think he’s the only NFL player who has been at a club where an altercation occurred? He was cleared of wrongdoing. Get over it. I don’t seem to remember anybody berating Antonio Pierce for going to a club with his buddy who had a piece in his sweatpants. Get off the guy’s back (and your high-horses, for that matter)

  56. JunkYardDawg1156 says: Jul 27, 2010 11:05 PM

    @dumpsterbaby
    Here we go huh, another MV defender wanting to use the behavior of others to try & deflect for Mike Vick. Again we are all told how things other athletes have done is much worse to try & make us understand that MV is not so bad & anyone that thinks so is not giving him his just do or his 5th chance. This is not about dog fighting – if you had read previous posts instead of being a typical Vick defender, you would have already seen that but:
    MV for fun, took bleeding defenseless already hurt animals & tortured them with his bare hands. He electrocuted them, beat them to death, hung them, set them on fire. MV committed vile horrific acts of serial animal cruelty & murder for kicks. His Dad told him what he was doing was wrong, he ignored his father & continued to engage in the same acts of sadistic ghoulish behavior for over 6 years. He would still be doing it if he hadn’t been caught. Dog fighting was only a part of it, but MV defenders never do any research or really educate themselves on Vicks crimes.
    MV willingly & knowingly, infected women with syphilis; a disease they will carry that for the rest of their lives. Guess that’s ok too.
    His sentence ends in 2012. He hasn’t finished “doing his time”, nor has he been “released”. Again get educated on MV.
    Instead of the people that understand the real atrocities committed by MV “get off his back”, how about the MV defenders stop the blatant ignorance, pull their heads out of their a**es and see this guy for what he really is.:
    MV is a evil, sadistic, sub-human POS that has as much regard for sick & hurt animals as he has respect for women. He isn’t worth anywhere near the amount of loyalty he has been shown.

  57. dumpsterbaby says: Jul 28, 2010 1:11 AM

    @ junkyard
    Since we’re checking facts:
    There was never any evidence of dogs being set on fire involving the “Bad Newz Kennelz”
    Dogs cannot be murdered. Animals are personal property.
    Vick has not been accused of infecting anyone with syphilis, which is also curable. (A girl accused him of giving her herpes)
    He was “released” from federal prison. I don’t know how one could possibly argue with that. While he remains on parole, his prison sentence was completed, and he therefore finished “doing his time”.
    Let’s stop pretending and call it like it is: You despise Vick because he tortured animals, nothing more. This is painfully obvious from your rhetoric.
    While I may not agree with you, I can respect that position, but can you stop pretending that there is something more to it.
    He gave a girl herpes and had a birthday party. Oh the “atrocities!”
    I wonder what skeletons lurk in your closet.

  58. dumpsterbaby says: Jul 28, 2010 1:19 AM

    I almost forgot, he didn’t listen to his daddy either. How evil and sadistic… get over yourself

  59. JunkYardDawg1156 says: Jul 28, 2010 9:21 PM

    Let’s run through MV’s crimes/indiscretions:
    1) Tortured and killed animals for fun for over 6 years.
    2) Ran an illegal dog fighting/organized crime operation for over 6 years.
    3) Blatantly lied to his employer, investigators & the NFL.
    4) Knowingly & selfishly spread STD’s
    5) Cheated on his taxes.
    6) Failed illegal substance/drug tests while out on bail.
    7) Defrauded & stole from investors in his companies.
    8) Illegally transferred money & merchandise to family members.
    8) Was advised by his father what he was doing was wrong, chose to ignore that input & continue with his incredibly stupid & sadistic acts.
    9) Openly lobbied & tried to get traded on the radio in Charlotte to get out of Philadelphia after they gave him a second chance.
    Jeez, why would anyone ever have a problem with Mike Vick??
    BTW, my past isn’t anywhere near as colorful as that. LOL
    Yours words sarcastically minimizing him not listening to his father about the killings & torture & infecting innocent women with incurable disease speaks volumes on how you perceive MV’s crimes. You claim not to be a MV defender, and then abuse others that feel he’s been given too many chances. Yes, ANYONE that abuses animals in anyway for FUN is despicable in my book. But then you add the spreading of disease & the other items above & this guy is NO GOD DA*MN GOOD. There’s a pattern of behavior here even YOU should be able to see dump. No consideration for anyone but himself. Continuously performs inexcusably evil & selfish acts.
    Either way I am bored discussing this with you. You win, others have done soooo much worse, and we should all stop holding MV accountable. Poor misunderstood guy that he is. How dare anyone have a problem with his behavior…ROTFL
