Nike Sponsors Dog Fighter Michael Vick - Just do it!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Elite Realty, Port Coquitlam, BC

There is no justice in the world on this one, wheelbarrows full of cash for his Mea Culpe.  What a great example for the youth of this world.  I think Nike made a big boo boo on this one, Photoshop hasn't been this busy since George Bush left office.  I am disgusted with Nike's complete lack of concern for the image they are portraying.  I guess Nike wants to increase it's market share in the up and coming consumer nation of Afghanistan where dog fighting is a national past time.

Scott, If I were a Nike fan (New Balance myself), I would not buy anymore from them.  Getting out of jail is his reward, and he should spend years rebuilding faith and integrity, before being allowed to return to the rich lifestyle.

The former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback who is none other than Michael Vick, which is convicted because of his involvement in bankrolling and running a dog-fighting ring is going to be a controversial figure until the end of time.  And the rumors of a Michael Vick Nike contract have a lot of people up in arms.  A Michael Vick Nike contract would be some bad PR, and the backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles sparks protest everywhere.  Nike has vehemently denied such a contract exists.  Vick hasn't posted great stats yet this season, and may get traded at the end of the season.  Instead of filling out a personal loan application to start a <a rev="vote for" title="Michael Vick and Nike Contract | No Go, Says Nike" href="http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/10/01/michael-vick-nike-contract/ ">Michael Vick Nike contract</a> protest, why don't you go out and protest Nike's non-adherence to Fair Trade principles in their overseas factories – where human beings are ill-treated.

Meredithi:  I havn't bought a pair of Phil Nike's shoes in years as a personal protest of their practises...can you say the same? Vick is just the latest outrage this seemingly soulless corporation has offended me with.

I think Nike screwed up too.  Michael did his time, yes ... but he has yet to prove to us that he has really changed ... and even then ... let him SPEND some money on good causes, and mending his ways, before we make him rich and make him an even bigger celebrity.

I have never bought Nike shoes for other reasons... this one just confirms that I was right all along to choose someone else's shoes for me and my son.  Sometimes a big company like that has to set an example, and they're not good at it.  They only care about the mighty dollar.
