...instead of that soulless, morally bankrupt Vick? If the HSUS needs an NFL star to reach out to children that are exposed to dogfighting in their daily lives, why wouldn’t you choose someone who can set a GOOD example through his past and present actions?
Jarrod Cooper of the Oakland Raiders and other Raiders players are helping fund a initiative called “Code 597,” after the penal code violation for animal abuse. The goal is to educate the public on better care and to fund dog shelters.
Cooper volunteers almost daily at a shelter. And he's worked with some of the Vick dogs rescued by Bad Rap. Check out this picture of Jarrod and his buddy Hector (a former vick dog) :
We have taken vacation days from work, traveled by train and paid for hotel rooms to participated in HSUS Humane Legislation Day at our state capital. We have supported the HSUS with our time and our money. We have defended the HSUS when people sought to lump them in with radical animal rights groups like PETA. We will no longer do ANY of this, and will boycott any and ALL NFL sponsors if Vick plays.

I totally agree. Vick isn't really sorry for his actions. He's just using HSUS to get the PR he needs to get back to playing football. It's an insult to sincere dog lovers and decent human beings.
With you all the way... its all about ''image'' and frankly theirs now has no validity.
We will do what it takes.
