Cancel Michael Vick's Endorsement deal

Nike dropped endorsement deals for Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong-- both of which have never been convicted of actual crimes. However, Michael Vick is a convicted felon, yet he still retains an endorsement deal with Nike. We ask that Nike reconsider this decision, one which elevates an animal abuser in our society into that of a role model. If Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong are no longer considered proper role models, why is Michael Vick?

Vick has not apologized for the actual murders of the dogs he killed, nor has he shown any remorse for those murders. He's only sorry he got caught. Help us petition Nike to reconsider their deal with Vick.

      I want to thank everyone for signing the Nike petition! In less than 48 hrs, we've hit over 500 signatures! Don't forget to forward the petition to everyone who cares about animals- rescuers, adopters, shelter workers, family, friends-- and anyone else who would like to see a standard followed by Nike. If releasing Woods & Armstrong from their endorsement deals for personal behavior that did not lead to criminal charges, why not keep the same standard? Let's help our children by showing them who proper role models are- by standing up for those who cannot speak for themselves!

      If Michael Phelps lost all endorsements for smoking pot how in the world can Vick get endorsements for such heinous acts of cruelty ?

      Michael Vick is not a good example for anyone to follow.

      This man is repulsive. I refuse to support the NFL if this man continues to play football. People that do sickening things and murder any animal should not be put in any high paying career nor should they be a role model for children. What is this teaching the youth of today?

      This is just tasteless. I am not buying another pair of your sneakers until this ends. Neither are the hundreds of animal advocates that I know on social media. Who's bright idea was this. So many great men to have, and one who is proved to have slammed the heads of dogs into pavement and to have severely abused them is your endorser? Evolve already.
