Michael Vick: NFL “Sacks” Sales of His Jersey
I wandered on to NFLShop.com to do my daily check on everything Michael Vick and I noticed something strange. I couldn’t find Michael Vick No. 7 jerseys anywhere.
So I called the NFL and asked them why they had made this decision. “We have suspended sales of Vick-related merchandise on our official league e-commerce site, NFLShop.com,” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. “This includes Vick jerseys and collectible items such as autographed balls and other memorabilia.”
McCarthy said the decision was made because it was “not appropriate under the circumstances.” The suspension will take place for the immediate future.
