Vick opts out of Oprah show appearance.

“A spokesman for The Oprah Winfrey Show said Feb. 16 that representatives of the NFL star called late Tuesday to cancel his appearance on the show for personal reasons.”
Funny how Vick went from being considered a criminal, an animal killer, someone that was below everyone else and just considered the scum of the Earth and now he’s back in the limelight after leading the Eagles to the playoffs and winning the Comeback Player of The Year award.
I love Vick as a football player and I certainly feel that all people deserve a 2nd chance. There’s been rumor that a Dallas radio talk show host and others who adopted dogs rescued from Vick’s operation were pressuring Winfrey to allow their voices to be heard during the show that was scheduled to be broadcast Feb. 24. There was speculation that Vick did not want to face that gauntlet of dog lovers.
