Has Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles fooled us all? Or did he simply not want to be bothered by the radio DJ, Richard Hunter?

Vick was on his way out of a building after unceremoniously receiving the key to the city of Dallas the week before the Super Bowl when Hunter tried to speak to Vick; Hunter had adopted one of Vick’s abused dogs.

Hunter went to the "ceremony" in a professional sense for 1190AM radio. He thought that Vick would like to know how one of his former dogs was doing because of an interview that Vick had recently given. Hunter was wrong.

A shaky cell phone video taken by Hunter as her pursues Vick to talk about the dog shows Vick and his bodyguards. Vick keeps saying that he doesn’t want to answer questions and then when Hunter finally gets around to stating that his questions are in regards to one of Vick’s old dogs, a bodyguard says, “We don’t care about the dog.”

Here is a link to the video. 

Is this the Michael Vick of 2006? Vick is back at the top of his game, so does he assume that he can go back to past behaviors?

Vick is still on probation. He’s been quoted as saying he would like to own a dog again someday, but he showed so little concern for a dog he had owned. He walked away from Hunter without a word about the dog.

During the exchange, Vick can be heard saying, "Nothing man. How many times I got to tell you? Get the f*** out of my face." This is in response to Hunter asking for a couple questions. 

Hunter later says, "You said you were worried about the dogs, Mike, now is your chance."

Vick replies, "Come on, man," and a bodyguard can be heard saying, "I got him."

One of the bodyguards is having words with Hunter, while another is restraining him from talking to Vick again.

Vick could simply be annoyed with the press, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The bodyguard is heard saying, "We don't care about the dog," so they could clearly here what Hunter was saying.  

After an incident like this, what can be expected of Vick in the future?
