Breaking News: Nike Suspends Release Of New Vick Shoe

Thursday, July 19, 2007



Darren Rovell already reported today that you now can't get an NFL Jersey with the word "Ookie" on it, but now he's breaking even more breaking news...Via DR's SportsBiz...

Nike has a new statement, which I have just received. They are suspending the release of the Vick V shoe, which was scheduled to be in stores on Aug. 23. Below is the statement...

"Nike is concerned by the serious and highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent. We do believe that Michael Vick should be afforded the same due process as any citizen; therefore, we have not terminated our relationship. We have however made the decision to suspend the release of the Zoom Vick V and related marketing communications. Nike will continue to monitor the situation closely and have no further comment at this time."
Dagger. I'm with Rovell on this one though...they HAD to do this. This is only going to get worse for Michael I'm afraid.

A while back when this all started and ESPN, the Worldwide Leader of Sport, wasn't having any of it, I mentioned it to a female friend who liked Vick, thought he was great, her favorite player...

She was so disgusted with this guy.

Remember how the NFL was trying to get the female eyeballs to watch and get into their sport?

Not gonna happen with that stupid ass out in front on the box of Wheaties.

What an IDIOT.

Do the Falcons play in Cleveland? Wouldn't want to see Vick take jumper cables to the dog pound.

Too soon AND unfunny! The only kind of joke I know.

You guys should checkout the shoes that came out from Nike with Ipod applications. Nike and Apple coming together is a perfect combination and if this can motivate a healthier lifestyle than more power to them.
