That's what Stephon Marbury said. The New York Knicks player came to the defense of Michael Vick and compared dogfighting to hunting.
He said, "I think, you know, we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals. You know, from what I hear, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors.''
Dogfighting is not like hunting at all. In dogfighting these dogs torture each other and basically die a slow death! Hunters don't go out there and slowly torture a damn deer and then lock it up in a cage and watch it bleed to death. Totally different.
Stephon isn't the only person coming to Michael's defense. The NAACP held a press conference urging the NFL to let Michael play.
"As a society, we should aid in his rehabilitation and welcome a new Michael Vick back into the community without a permanent loss of his career in football," said R.L. White, president of the group's Atlanta chapter. "We further ask the NFL, Falcons, and the sponsors not to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to fans all over this country."
Hours of enjoyment?! Who the hell can enjoy that dude knowing that he killed 8 lil' pooches? Where's Cujo when you need him?
The next day he followed up on his statement..........
Marbury expanded on those comments in the statement.
"There is no list for which animals should be killed and which shouldn't. I love animals and none of them should be harmed However, we don't react the same when other animals are being killed for sport or the sake of human pleasure."
hunting is one thing...dog fighting is quite another. he only followed up his comments because he caught some shit for the stupid comment he made in the first place. his agent should just tell him to shut up. he is right though we dont react the same when other animals are being killed for sport or the sake of human pleasure." theres a huge difference when someone is hunting with a gun compared to someone who hangs a dog or throws them down on the ground to break their backs or drowns them. if stephon doesnt get that hen hes just as big an animal as mike is.
you just know that stephon enjoys a good dog fight..............
