One of the most controversial sports figures of the past 25 years has sounded off on one of the most controversial of the past five.
Mike Tyson, in a recent interview with ESPN.com touting his upcoming show on Animal Planet, addressed Vick’s dogfighting past.
“Listen, listen. I don’t know why people do what they do,” Tyson told Paul Lukas of ESPN.com. “What should we do with Michael Vick? Really, really: Why don’t we castrate him? Why don’t we do something bad to his children to teach him a lesson? Is that really the answer?
“Or instead, we can say, ‘Hey, you’ve been given the wrong signals all these years, and you didn’t realize you were destroying God’s animals.’ So we have to change his way of thinking. Not kill him, not assassinate him. We have to kill his way of thinking in that particular area. So yes, we should give him another chance. And so far he’s taken great advantage of it.”
So Tyson doesn’t want Vick to be castrated. Which is a positive thing.
