PostSubject: Vick: Protestors and Protectors   Wed Oct 07, 2009 8:47 pm

Michael Vick's introduction to Lincoln Financial Field tonight - a highly anticipated event pumped up by sports-talk radio, black leaders and animal-rights activists - was, in the end, more about the game than anything else.

Before the game started, local NAACP head J. Whyatt Mondesire and a dozen or fewer supporters stood in front of the Linc and took questions from reporters. Mondesire earlier had announced that he and the Black Clergy of Philadelphia and other activists would hold a march outside the stadium to show their support for Vick, who they believe has been maligned by animal-rights activists spewing racist rhetoric.

"Nobody's heard him called the N-word," Mondesire told reporters. "But there was a lot of venom in those words."

And that, pretty much, was the protest: no signs or visible demonstrations and a few words to reporters.

Earlier, at Broad and Pattison, a small group of dog lovers held up signs protesting Vick, braving the honks and shouts of fans who supported the Eagles' new quarterback. One of their signs read: "My dog hates the Philadelphia Eagles."


Where do you stand on the subject? Say that he is truely sorry or that it isn't enough?
