Vick says "my whole life was a lie"

In an NFL Network interview with former Falcons coach Jim Mora (which Mora was promoting during an ill-fated appearance with Doug Gottlieb of ESPN Radio), former Falcons quarterback Mike Vick addressed why he didn’t come clean when evidence of dogfighting emerged.

My whole life was a lie,” Vick said.  “Everything, from A to Z.”

Vick also acknowledged that he went to the rural Virginia property that housed his dogfighting operation “every week” during football season, on his day off.

The interview airs Sunday, on NFL Network’s GameDay Morning.

    Never heard of Doug Gottlieb… Now twice in one day is too much…. Mora was right to go off on this punk, sounded like a kid doing an interview for high school…

    So what you are trying to say is now Vick is going to embrace his former life to get more publicity?

    Funny how all the old jocks on any type of media outlet, just sing this guys praises now. A scumbag dog fighter has a good game against the lions and jaguars, (arguably the two worst teams in the league) and all is right with the world.
    A perfect QB for philly however, the worst most classless fans in the league. Rock on Ron Mexico!

    So, having emphatically denied back then that he knew a thing about the illegal dog-fighting/gambling operation that his family was running on his property, what are we supposed to make of Michael Vick’s “good word” NOW?????

  8. LiveNBreatheFootball says: Sep 30, 2010 3:22 PM

    Vick is still lying. I caught a promo clip. He says that some guy got him into dog fighting his first year. Umm, he used his bonus check before he even reported to camp to set up the ring. He even had an agreement with his buddies that predated his NFL days that whoever made it big first would fund the ring.

    Amen technoboy! The first time I heard this guy on the radio I got a bad vibe, now after I’ve seen him in live action I know why! He has an air of elitism about him that is unsettling. I can’t stand radio hosts who just “sound” like they think they know more or are better than you, and this guy has it.

    *queue the vick hate speeches*
    oh am i too late? why cant everyone just take it at face value and assume yes, he might actually be trying to change himself? everybody realizes what he did and how horrible it was but he paid his debt to society and has moved on from that phase of his life. you seem to be the only ones clinging to the past…
    …as the eagles stomp your worthless team into the ground this year…honestly, would you even be talking about vick if he wasnt doing so good?

  12. StevieMo says: Sep 30, 2010 3:47 PM

    Good for him for being so frank. Now I really do believe that he is a changed man.
    Plus I traded for him before the season started in my dynasty league. For WR James Jones. Sweet.

    As far as I can tell, he is a scum bag. But he is a good football player. I don’t know why the league has him do all this stuff – interviews and fundraisers and that type of nonsense. There is no way to tell whether it is genuine. If it is genuine, then good for him – I suppose. But, ultimately, why do his mistakes need to be rehashed? Why does he have to continue to say how sorry he is and that he has changed? The league allowed him to come back – it is over. I watch football because I love watching it – and that is probably why all of you watch it too. I don’t watch football for any other reason. And I certainly do not watch football in search of some sort of hero or person to set an example for me. So, I do not care what he has done on his own time. He is a damn good football player who adds excitement to the game. That is all that matters now – since he has served his sentence. Just move on and stop talking about it.

  15. LunarPie says: Sep 30, 2010 3:49 PM

    Oh I feel so sorry for you Mike. Just wait until you get a big long term contract and your life’s lies will continue. Your not a Super Bowl Quarterback, you’re a highlight reel. Face it!

    100% correct, these guys were fighting dogs during his VTech days, and probably even sooner
    they just didnt have the funding to turn it into a full blown operation at the time
    guy is a scumbag plain and simple, sadly most of the dogs he bred were curs anyway, they couldnt even breed good game dogs

    I wouldn’t believe him if he said he was black and stupid. Two well known facts.
    He was involved in this junk he was flunking out of Virginia Tech. Beamer didn’t have the stones to do anything about it.
    He didn’t deserve another down, and he doesn’t deserve one single positive thing in his life.
    If he were held to the same standards as his dogs, he would have been beaten, hung, drowned or electrocuted many blue moons ago.
    I still wonder why the NFL never officially addressed his failed drug test. Maybe flubio or 4g’s can actually do some real reporting instead of copying and pasting and figure that one out.

    It’s more funny to me how some people refuse to acknowledge the capacity for those, who have made mistakes, to change. Listening to Mike Vick talk now I hear a humbled, contrite, and matured individual.

  23. Turk says: Sep 30, 2010 4:00 PM

    I heard the interview and here is what I think. Gottlieb did perform poorly on the interview. His questions were imprecise and poorly phrased. However, I think Mora knew what was being asked and the questions were not unfair or out of bounds. Mora could have taken the high road and just answered the questions with non-answer coach speak that all NFL coaches are taught to master. Instead, he chose to insult and ridicule Gottlieb and he ended up coming across as petty, immature, and rude.
    I never had a very high opinion of Gottlieb’s abilities before this interview, and his poor performance did not change that view. So my Gottlieb rating stayed where it was. I had no opinion about Jim Mora before this interview, but after the Gottlieb interview I now have a negative impression of him as both a person and a professional. So my Mora rating took a steep nose dive, whihc means he came out on the losing end of this confrontation IMHO.

  24. FedorTheChamp says: Sep 30, 2010 4:04 PM

    I believe Vick and I FORGIVE Vick! I’m a huge dog lover especially shelter dogs and I think Vick deserves a second chance. I love how he said he didn’t deserve that 150 million contract on 60 minutes. I appreciate his honesty now about his life and what he did. The man made a mistake and he served the maximum under federal law which is as far as I know 2 years imprisonment and 3 years probation.
    The guy did his time and he has every right to change his life and make a living. The HATERS act like Vick got away with it or is laughing at what he did. The Michael Vick I see now has apologized a million times and wants to be the very best he can be in every way, on and off the field. Give it a rest already. Don’t crucify the guy because he deserves a second chance at being a better person.

    Jimmy Jr was great when things were going well, but he became a real finger pointer and blamer the second things got even a little tough.

    This is not surprising at all. If you look at the time line, he purchased the dog fighting house three days after his first big NFL contract. It is clear that his dream was to fight dogs, and being a NFL player was just a means to do that.

  29. steelersmichele says: Sep 30, 2010 4:14 PM

    TD40 says: Vick’s dogs were beaten, hung, shot, burned, electrocuted, and drowned to death…. And if you think all that stuff is “ok” or “forgivable” in any way, shape, or form, you’re as much of a weird, sadistic asshole as he is.
    TD40. I don’t think what he did was okay and I do think he’s forgivable if he truly changes his life around–and so far he’s doing just that.
    Oh, by the way, I’m sure you’re not a vegetarian like me. You eat meat and wear leather, right? Do you know those animals are beaten, hung, shot, burned, electrocuted, skinned alive, starved, not allowed to run or move just so you can eat your steak and wear shoes?
    Since you eat meat and wear leather, you must think it’s okay which makes you a weird, sadistic asshole.
    Don’t throw stones.

  30. buddha says: Sep 30, 2010 4:19 PM

    Its funny because no matter how much you Haters criticize Vick and talk about how bad of a person he is. . . . . . . . .just remember that he’s STILL way more successful than ANY of you. I think thats why most of you have so much resentment towards him. Hate on. . . . . . . .

  31. Gruber74 says: Sep 30, 2010 4:23 PM

    I am so happy that Vick is playing again. This obviously increases the chances of him blowing out both knees or coming out of a pile with his foot/leg on backwards. The karma of a career-ending injury right before his chance to get another long-term deal is enough to make me cream my shorts.
    Keep on running, Michael…..

    I don’t root for injuries, but I want to see Michael Vick tortured on the football field. Well I won’t see it because I refuse to watch him play football, but I would watch the highlights. Psycopaths who get off on torturing defenseless creatures don’t change, they maybe just learn to lie better.

    I wonder if all of the “morally superior” posters on here are as passionately outspoken about some of the other atrocities going on in the world these days as they are about Mike Vick. You know, human rights violations in Asia, genocide in Africa, or human trafficking in your own back yard. Or is this just your preferred platform to make yourself feel good about not having done anything like that with your life? People do get rehabilitated, they do change and can become positive and productive citizens if given the chance. If the dogfighting bothers you so damn much, then you are all activists that are physically working to eradicate it, right? How about cockfighting? What? No? Chickens aren’t cute enough for you?

    ^^^ That statement is almost the stupidest thing ive ever heard. YEAH, he truly dreamt of fighting dogs, NOT playing in the NFL. You people on here make it seem as though he is the ONLY person to EVER fight dogs or have a ring for it. PLEASE people…WAKE UP and everyone needs to STOP with the holier than thou CRAP.
    The holier than thou people need to wake up and smell what they are shoveling.
    His crimes while detestable, are NOT the worst crimes ever committed. Give it a rest. He paid his dues dolled out by the justice system put in place by OUR government. Dont like it? Not fair?
    Fine. It can be argued one way or the other. But if either of the latter is your problem, then your problem is with the SYSTEM. NOT Vick.

    Gottlieb rubs me the wrong way. I just listened to the interview on youtube and he comes off as a prick. The comment that ended with “you may still be the coach of Atlanta” is what I think set Mora off. Too cavalier with a guy he doesn’t know. After that happened, Mora obviously turned cold but Gottlieb better change his stripes fast. He reminds me of Jim Rome.

  39. spar says: Sep 30, 2010 4:53 PM

    It’s possible he is trying to change. Good for him if he is. But with his history he doesn’t deserve benefit of any doubt, and we’ll have to wait and see how his actions play out, not his words. “Trust, but verify.”

    Why dont people get upset when they put Horses down because they cant stud? Oh because its 45 year old white males doing it.
    Why dont people get upset when Kevin Kolb hunts Wild Bore? Hes killing an innocent animal for sport? Oh because he’s a white guy.

    In a thread full of some of the stupidest posts I have read on this site (no small feat, by any means), the post above truly wins first prize.
    Seriously… You actually think that if I go out an torture 20 people to death for kicks and get let off with 2 years and 24 months probation, that the public should be outraged with the courts while granting me a free pass for “time served” upon my release?
    As for request for us to “give it a rest” because Vick’s crimes “while detestable, are NOT the worst crimes ever committed”, are you saying that we should we forget about the Holocaust simply because Stalin killed more people than Hitler?
    The scariest part about the Mike Vick threads on this site isn’t at all that a sociopathic sadist got off easy and is a starting QB in the NFL, it is the fact that many of you are just as brain-dead, soulless and morally bankrupt as Vick is.
    As for Vick’s laughable “redemption”, all I can say is you can take a man out of the ghetto, but you’ll never take the ghetto out of a man. The only thing this POS is sorry for is that he got caught in the first place.

    I live in Vick’s home town. I would like for him to explain what else his thug friends and family were doing with his money. It’s funny how it’s all been swept under the rug over the years. Vick helped fund Bad New Kennels, but wait, Bad News Kennels was funded by drug money. The real truth of the matter is that Vick helped fund a well known drug ring around here that happened to fight dogs and commit other crimes against the community as well.
    We here in Newport News and the Tidewater area know this, but the rest of country is kept in the dark about it by the NFL propaganda machine.

  47. Wick says: Sep 30, 2010 5:54 PM

    “In an NFL Network interview with former Falcons coach Jim Mora (which Mora was promoting during an ill-fated appearance with Doug Gottlieb of ESPN Radio), former Falcons quarterback Mike Vick addressed why he didn’t come clean when evidence of dogfighting emerged.”
    Isn’t the answer obvious? Vick was in a position of weakness to come clean initially. Then, he had everything to lose.
    By contrast, Vick now is in a position of strength.
    Coming clean is a lot easier when the downside risk is all but eliminated.
    Also, I’m not too sweet on the spin that Vick’s years of torturing and killing dogs should be made light of “because he got in when he was young.” Dude was a 20-some year old man when he embraced this practice – it wasn’t like he was “a victim” who was weaned on it since he was 4 years old.
    Vick is coming “clean” for the same reasons he lied at every turn to avoid coming clean earlier: pure self interest.

    Out of curiosity, what would this prove in a forum dedicated to football? Is there any reason why I should assume your intentions are anything other than looking for some kind of fodder you can try to assassinate my character with?
    For the record, the general public finds two types of crimes the most heinous in the entire litany of offences you could be charged with. That would be those offences invoving animals and those involving children. Vick is guilty of the former, which explains why so many so-called “haters” (stupidest label ever, BTW) think he is an unredeemable sociopathic douchebag. I tend to agree with them. Couple that with the fact that (by his own admission) Vick was a willing participant in this reprehensible behaviour for years, and it quickly becomes apparent that this was not a “mistake” made while pissed up on Grey Goose some summer afternoon, it is a measure of who Michael Vick truly is.

  52. Wick says: Sep 30, 2010 6:49 PM

    Ridge_Runner:
    You hit it right on the head in every sense of the word, and punctuated your point perfectly.
    Vick didn’t just go along for the ride —- he was that alpha dog of that pack, from funding the operation to cloaking the land to making the calls on what dogs get killed, tortured or tortured and killed.
    Vick’s years of transgressions are by no means a “mistake.” A mistake is forgetting to pick up the milk or leaving your clothes in the drier too long. This, as Ridge_Runner stated so eloquently, is the measure of who Michael Vick truly is.
    Well done RR.

    @Ridge_Runner: Yes, I would be very outraged if a person that killed and tortured humans got off with 2 years time and probation,but they were dogs. Not children dogs. U can’t compare Vick to Hitler, they were dogs. U can’t compare him to Stalin they were dogs. It wasn’t the Houlocaust. Were Humans, we kill millions of animals everyday. We kill them to eat, we kill for sport, we kill them just for the hell of it. He did he’s time for running a illegal operation. Get over it.

    someone needs to put “TM” behind the “houlocaust”.
    and vick was put in the can for racketeering. his fellow black local magistrate made sure he didnt actually serve one minute of time for dogfighting.
    is it possible vick is now (a) a changed man and (b) a real qb? a. doubtful but we will see. b. doubtful but we will see when he gets to play real defenses.
    no one is jealous of vick. but his supporters are jealous of his critics. his critics have a handle on the truth and common sense. well, except for carl.

    It’s unfortunate that Vick’s self discovery had to come this way at such a price. A bitter pill to swallow. This is where new beginnings can happen. Including playing “Lights Out” football at the moment.
    GO STEELERS!

    “I live in Vick’s home town. I would like for him to explain what else his thug friends and family were doing with his money. It’s funny how it’s all been swept under the rug over the years. Vick helped fund Bad New Kennels, but wait, Bad News Kennels was funded by drug money. The real truth of the matter is that Vick helped fund a well known drug ring around here that happened to fight dogs and commit other crimes against the community as well.
    We here in Newport News and the Tidewater area know this, but the rest of country is kept in the dark about it by the NFL propaganda machine. ”
    ————————————————————–
    The way I understand it, his father said that MV fought dogs in their garage while he was in high school. I did suspect drug involvement but didn’t hear anything about it around the trial period.
    For the person who says NFL is dedicated to make him look good, etc. Not only is the NFL (National Felons League) involved, so is Humane Society of United States involved in it. Wayne Pacelle raised $124 million dollars in donations by lying and saying that HSUS would take the dogs and as soon as the money came in, he said the dogs had to be put to death. Other animal activists saved the 52 dogs. Wayne Pacelle had to get some of his “mojo” back when so many members quit so he took MV under his wing and drives him around, in a limo, to make piss-ant speeches to inner-city kids. And Vick usually tries to make it sound like the people around him are the ones who got him into so much trouble. He never tells the kids that “Michael Vick” got my ass in trouble and Michael Vick has to become a better person.” How do I know all of this about HSUS and Michael Vick? Because I worked undercover for years and I quit the day that Wayne Pacelle teamed up with Vick. I won’t work for an organization that “grooms” MV so he can help him with his return to the NFL.
    This is the end of my rant. Hopefully someone learns something from my post about some of the “behind the scenes” crap.

    Superb Owl,
    “hunting is legal and necessary. trapping, fighting and killing dogs is not.”
    Yea if we dont hunt those Wild Hogs they are going to take over. Give me a break. Breaking the law isnt what disgusts you so stop it right now. Killing innocent animals of any kind isnt right.
    “carl already proved he is a jackass.”
    Really? When did I do that? Im simply stating killing animals isnt right.(unless youre going to eat them) No matter what “category” you want to put it under. Sport, Hunting, Fighting etc. Kevin Kolb doesnt eat those Wild Hogs after killing them. Like to see him trying killing John Travolta, he isnt killing that Wild Hog.
    “methinks carl is the “pitbore”.
    I dont know what youre trying to do there. Be funny? You failed.
    @ RickValdez
    Right. I hate white people. I hate them. Im white and I hate white people. Right. I just dont like morons who cant come up with anything better to post than “Your just a complete racist moron. Uhhh durrr” and its “You’re” not “Your” moron.
    @ Vineeee
    Shut up please.

    @Ridge_Runner: Yes, I would be very outraged if a person that killed and tortured humans got off with 2 years time and probation,but they were dogs. Not children dogs. U can’t compare Vick to Hitler, they were dogs. U can’t compare him to Stalin they were dogs. It wasn’t the Houlocaust. Were Humans, we kill millions of animals everyday. We kill them to eat, we kill for sport, we kill them just for the hell of it. He did he’s time for running a illegal operation. Get over it.
    THANK YOU !!! I CANT BELIEVE THIS JERKOFF EVEN MADE THE COMPARISON.

    He is a changed man, he lost 2 years of his life in prison, lost 100 million dollars and we went completely broke. He paid his debt to society and is back in the NFL. He deserves a chance just like everyone else to make a comeback.
