Eagles' Vick wins Ed Block Courage Award
Teammates honor Eagle for courage, sportsmanship

"Vick won the Ed Block Courage Award, voted on by his teammates on the Philadelphia Eagles.

"The Ed Block Award, named for the longtime athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts, honors players who exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. All 32 NFL teams select a recipient, and each winner will be honored at an awards ceremony in Baltimore on March 9."

IMHO, really courageous men fight their own battles--they don't train dogs to fight them, nor do they execute them.  Angry

"for everything he's been through!!!"  I am, to put it mildly, furious.  Wish I could attend that dinner.  And I hope the Phil Eagles fall through a hole in the earth.  I bet Ed Block is turning over in his grave.

. . . doesn't take any courage to torture and kill innocent animals. MV is a lousy excuse for a human being and those players who voted for him are no better. There's an interesting conversation on Pet Connection about just this topic. What a message to send to all those kids, too. Just unbelievable!!!

For all animal abusers/torturers/executioners etc. Their license plate frames should all say: I Abuse and Hurt animals. And maybe have it on their driver's license's too.

Unbelieveable......disgusting.....disheartening....I will never be able to forgive him or believe him and his claims of remorse, I feel all he's remorseful for is that he got caught.  This just makes it worse. Angry Angry Angry

What always surprises me is the failure to recognize the well documented connection between major psychoses (antisocial behavior) and animal abuse that seems to predispose one to harm other humans, too -- ahhh, maybe that's why NFL players can't see it

Yup.  Maybe it's all that brain damage from all those hard hits that makes the NFL players do things like this.  Angry

Hard hits make someone be cruel to animals? Then every football player would be an animal abuser? Even the kids on school football teams?

I think the concentration should be on this ilk of a (can't even bring myself to use the word man) scum bag that does wrong and gets rewarded for it. Seems to be the rule now - the more hideous of a wrong you do the bigger the reward we will heap on you. How disgusting they all are that participated in and enjoyed giving this reward to anyone who does wrong and instead of punishment get a 'atta boy, good job. Here's our saying its ok, go ahead and do it again, can't wait to think up an even bigger reward next time you do bad."

Heres a comment by a copy editor in our local paper the Burlington County Times; "Michael Vick won the Ed Block Courage award,voted on by his teammates on the Philadelphia Eagles. I guess he is courageous- he could have been bitten by all those dogs he was murdering." He followed it the next day with this; "This has been a terrible week for me. We got a huge snowstorm. I got ousted from my fanasy football playoffs and one of my favorite actresses , Brittany Murphy died. Oh well, at least Michael Vick suffered a minor injury."
 I loke Joe Mason [author of above] as well as all the comments that have been made by other BCT editors on the front page newsbreak section. They are all pet parents and not Vick fans !

What I was saying is that brain damage is the only thing that could explain approving of Michael Vick.  Certainly no normal person, playing with a full deck, would approve of him.

Vick is lower than scum!

(And yes, NFL players do have a lot of brain damage.  And high school players can, too.  There is a former NFL player, forget his name, who goes to high schools and speaks about  the need to be do things right in playing football, to avoid ending up like he is, later in life.)

Down, JJ. Just sayin' people who play aggressive, high-contact "sports" are already abusing themselves to some degree. So may not
view animal abuse in same light I do. At NFL level, could be all those nasty steroids.
