...and I'm surprised that 60 Minutes doesn't realize it! This just in:
(CBS) Former pro-football star Michael Vick speaks to CBS Sports NFL Today Anchor James Brown on 60 Minutes in his first interview since he admitted two years ago to running a dogfighting ring - a crime that landed him in federal prison for 18 months and got him suspended from the NFL.
The interview, conducted Monday, Aug. 10 in Virginia, will be broadcast on 60 Minutes this Sunday, Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
The ex-Atlanta Falcon's quarterback was conditionally re-instated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on July 27, a week after he was released from federal custody. If a team is interested in him, Vick could be playing again in a regular league game by the sixth week of the NFL season.
The segment will also include interviews with Wayne Pacelle, head of the Humane Society of the U.S., the country's largest organization dedicated to the protection of animals. Tony Dungy, the former NFL coach who will be a special advisor to Vick, will also be interviewed.
Again, this is a con by Vick and his handlers to get him back into the NFL--to get the gravy train rolling again. When will the national media realize this? Again, HSUS, and now 60 Minutes, loses all credibility with me by giving this "animal" a forum.

Hugs tight... you know.... I dont know alot about the football... but I think it is getting pretty late to sign????
Maybe......... just maybe.............. any NFL team is realising to sign the pond slime would be suicide for them ?
That wont be enough by far.. not being signed... but it is a start...... now to stop the rest of the Gravy Train.
We just cannot imagine an NFL team voluntarily putting themselves within 10 miles of this guy. If any of these teams actually let themselves be associated with this evil man, we will just be shocked and beyond disappointed in them.
Newsflash!!! Michael Vick has signed with Philadelphia Eagles. I can't believe it. Are they nuts??????
Not surprised that a state know for puppy mills would give this animal a "second chance". I was listening to Steve Dale today on the radio--Vick still denies ever "terminating" any dogs--it wasn't me, it was someone else.... yadda yadda yadda... RIGHT! Believe that one... NOT!
