Vick Cancels On Oprah

Michael Vick’s highest-profile one-on-one interview since before going to prison won’t be happening after all. The Eagle’s quarterback canceled his plans to appear on the The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Does Vick have something to hide? The reason to his decision to cancel is currently unknown. A chance to appear on national TV with Oprah would give the quarterback a chance to show mainstream Americans he has changed. Scheduling the interview only to cancel it later may contradict that opportunity.

The world already knows about Vick’s involvement in dog fighting. If worrying about being asked uncomfortable questions about his past is the reason, stepping up and answering them may be better for him in moving forward and letting his fans he has changed.

    That’s cause he’s coward and trashy.

    He is a pig. IF she had him on her show I would have hoped her audience members would have booed him. Animal abuser and he says he would like to get a dog for his kids. Hope it never happens.


    The Man Did not harm you.!! Yes he has committed some very bad sins….why don’t you post some of your past sins and we will compare?…..Michael Vick is just a Man who made some bad choices, and should be forgiven IF He is TRULY sorry for what he has done..I, wouldn’t go on that HYPOCRITES show for any amount of money or fame, you people seem to think she is GOD…she is just the opposite..time to turn off the TV and pick up a GOOD book…

      Actually he probably cancelled because Oprah would have seen right through his phony apologies and “remorse”. He isn’t sorry for what he did – watch his body language when he gives his rehearsed speeches. He looks defiant not remorseful and THAT’s why people don’t believe him. You said it, i.e., if he is TRULY sorry – guess he isn’t and suckers like you still want to watch him and forgive him. He’s a loser and a liar, or haven’t you figured that out yet???

    • StupidPeopleFTW

      I’ve figured out that 90% of the people in sports are losers and liars, the fact that you seem to think he’s different only shows that you’re not the brightest bulb in the box.

      Where’s the outrage over Stallworth, who killed a human being? Oh right, there isnt any. You, and people like you, make the rest of society look dumb.

      • Larry Horse's Arse

        You nailed it SP FTW.

      I’m not perfect but I can guarandamntee you that none of my past “sins” involved the voluntary and enthusiastic maiming, torturing, and killing of animals for entertainment or monetary reasons (or any reason, fwiw). It is a sick person who partakes in such activities bordering on sociopathic- and if he wasn’t able to throw a football well he’d be largely considered worthless by those who are willing to forgive his crimes.

      Don’t care enough to argue with or support your thoughts regarding Oprah.

      Re: Stallworth, Leonard Little, et al. they took a human life but i think if they were of the profile of Vick that would be a far bigger story than dog fighting. All of them are disgusting human beings worthy of a special place in h3ll. As the cenobytes said- your suffering shall be legendary even in h3ll.

      Hosting, funding, endorsing a dog fighting ring isn’t a mistake, sorry.

        Wow…pulseczar you da man……GREAT comment!!!

  • Dan Rakow

    This is a NEW Michael Vick and the old Michael Vick is history.

  • Roberta Waker

    The NEW Michael Vick is the OLD Michael Vick, just a little older and a little better at conning people with his phony apologies. A leopard can’t change his spots any more than this loser.

    • Larry Horse's Arse

      Something must be wrong in the universe…second time today I have totally agreed with Roberta Waker….my mother-in-law always used to say a leopard can’t change its spots…totally true…this is a character issue at the core.

  • Rick

    How dare that loser Oprah even book this tough guy, animal killer on her show.

  • Mike Fangman

    My guess is he probably cancelled because he wasn’t getting paid to come on her show.
