ESPN's "Outside the Lines" has an anonymous guy who was willing to tell tales of Michael Vick's dog fighting involvement. The man's a 30-year dog fighting veteran who's telling his tale in the hopes of legitimizing the "sport." He says of Vick:

"He's a pit bull fighter," the source says of Vick. "He's one of the ones that they call 'the big boys:' that's who bets a large dollar. And they have the money to bet large money. As I'm talking about large money โ€” $30,000 to $40,000 โ€” even higher. He's one of the heavyweights."

As deplorable as most of us find dog fighting, doesn't a man have a right to find something he's good at? At his day job, Vick's just a guy with a QB rating lower than that of Eli Manning, Jon Kitna, and David Garrard. But in the pit? Michael Vick is a heavyweight. He's not unlike any average accountant out there who spends all day getting hassled by his boss, but at night, on his own time, finds comfort in the fact that he's the most accomplished snuff film director in the entire county.
