Michael Vick: Eagles QB Takes Hint from Mendenhall Drama, Avoids Twitterverse
Michael Vick Stays On Everyone's Good Side With Recent Comments
Michael Vick knows what it is like to be on the receiving end of an angry public. Therefore, he did not take the tactic of saying anything negative about the U.S. taking out Osama Bin Laden like Rashard Mendenhall did.
First, Vick avoided Twitter, where 140 characters or less have caused more than one unnecessary controversy.
Second, when he was asked his thoughts in a recent radio interview, Vick had nothing but populist things to say.
“It was about time,” Vick told 102.1 FM and 1490 AM The Game in Virginia Beach. “What he so-called did to our people, took so many innocent lives. Hey, he deserved every bit of it.”
Whether you agree with Vick or not is beyond the scope of this piece. Vick said something the majority of Americans feel, if you read the most recent polls.
Since I try to do everything I can to avoid politics in this blog, I just want to mention the actual subject matter of his blog is not the point, the point is Vick will not stir controversy with his comments.
Mendenhall did stir controversy and now he will have to deal with it.
My opinion always has been I do not care what rock stars and pro athletes have to say about sociopolitical subject matter any more than they care what I think about their songs or the way they play.
