Ahhhhhh...now the excuses begin. Vick got involved because it oiled his clock.....the same reason people get involved in anything that is illegal. The fact that his boys were also involved made it difficult to let go.Just as powerful as any drug, the operation grew and the compulsions became harder to ignore.
Nice post. Recall Vick studied pit bull breeding before he was drafted and built the kennel soon after. It was his hobby -his friends were just there to help.
Not sure what your point is.
That Vick did this to himself. He went way out of his way to start an illegal hobby and thought he was above the law. His friends didn't get him into it. They just did a lot of the necessary work when he wasn't available.
It is true that Vick did this to himself. However, until the public gets more info, we can't really say which came first the chicken or the egg. It really doesn't matter in the long run who started it, the damage has been done over a long period of time. During this time, Vick had varied levels of problems that should have told him to back off, cut out all illegal activity and play it cool. For the sake of his family, his team and himself. The fact that he continued to operate an illegal activity while under the growing suspicion of the NFL speaks volumes of just how depraved he really was at the time. Continuing to repeat a behavior over and over again while ignoring the consequences, including the loss of your career, your money and your freedom is the true definition of a sickness. A disorder that Vick felt he had some sort of immunity.
