    Micheal Vick to have own reality TV show

    Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may not have a starting job, but he does have his own TV series.

    Vick, who returned to the playing field last month as a backup after serving 18 months in prison, has a deal with BET for an eight-part series scheduled to air early next year, the Los Angeles Times reported"The Michael Vick Project" will follow Vick's comeback in Philadelphia and also document his past, including the 2007 arrest for running a dogfighting ring

    The series is certain to draw more attention to the dogfighting controversy, and a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals quickly expressed skepticism.
    "People who abuse animals don't deserve to be rewarded," PETA's Dan Shannon said in a statement. "They shouldn't be given multimillion-dollar contracts . . . or given the privilege of being a role model.
    "We don't believe Michael Vick understands the seriousness of his crime. I think he's sorry he got caught, but only time will tell if he's truly remorseful."
    According to the paper, producers are treating the Vick program as more of a documentary than a reality show along the lines of VH-1's "The T.O. Show," which follows the life of Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens. "All I can ask is that people are receptive and come to this with an open mind," Vick said.

    Re: Micheal Vick to have own reality TV show

    I may be the minority here, but I actually think this could be a good idea. How often do you here the turn around stories of individuals who've made bad decisions in their life. Since kids seem to watch more TV than they read a book anymore, maybe this might help shed some light on a very dark subject of someone's past. You say reality TV, but it could be more like a documentary.

    People who make bad decisions should not be rewarded. If he donated all his earnings from the show to charity, then fine.

    I would agree. I don't think this is necessary saying he is getting rewarded for his decisions. He did serve his time, but I do see your point as well. You could also say you don't want to reward him with playing with a new team and paying him the money to be on the team.

    They should tie him up and put him in a cage with 5 hungry rotweilers. That I would watch. What a piece of crap.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I don't believe in exploiting the reason you need a second chance to make money you don't deserve.

    I know he's pretty much broke now (rightfully so) but he'll earn a comfortable wealth back in due time in the NFL if he just keeps his nose clean and works hard at it. But no, let's just throw some crap on tv and go with that instead.

    He's getting his second chance in the NFL. I have no problem with that. Ex-cons don't deserve reality tv shows. What a POS.
