Speculation tells me that such never dawned or was ever told to Michael Vick. To date, Vick faces two federal indictments on alleged illegal dog fighting activities including but not limited to training pit bulls for competitive dog fighting and doing such across state lines. First it is stupid not knowing what activities are occurring in properties one owns. Even before that, not knowing the differences in such laws from state to state for engaging in a knowingly illegal activity. Then there are some states unlike Virginia where dog fighting is not a felonious offense.
As such he has destroyed his image and reduced substantially the loot in his pocket. I say his image is damaged for two reasons. Namely that dog fighting shows the nature of ones spirit and moral values and that it seems to be one event after another for Vick. In a court case a few years ago a former magic city dancer settled out of court under secrecy saying that he knowingly gave her Herpes. Before then, two men were found to have marijuana in pickup truck that was owned by Vick. Then there is Davon Boddie, Vick's cousin who was arrested for drug which actually led to the search of Vick's house in Va. That is allegedly a dogfighting ring called Bad Newz Kennels.
