Nike is doing a good thing, he is a great player and is on par, or better than their other athletes. He has easily the playing ability to be sponsored.
never buying nike again is a huge over-reaction, even as a dog lover. This sounds more like you are the type of person who gets "Peanut butter wonder" (if you don't know what it is, look it up on urban dictionary)
all joking aside, he did a crime, and did his time. He fixed his life off the field and has changed. He has done all the right things since getting out of prison. there is nothing he has done to prevent this deal from being done on an ethical or moral standpoint.
"Michael acknowledges his past mistakes, We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field" -nike spokesperson Derek Kent
that about sums up the deal, Nike is not supporting what he did, but how he has changed. there is no reason to believe that he has not fixed himself up, he has repaired his image.
Our country is a forgiving country, he did his time. If you dislike it get the **** out.
Nike>whatever shitty company you use.

Go marry a brit. Please. and anyway, can't you get a passport to go back?
You don't have to buy Nike gear, but that is your choice. America is a great country like that where you have complete control over what you do. You can choose to buy lesser gear, and most won't care. this same freedom allows Nike the ability to sponsor Michael Vick. it's called freedom.
Vick commited a crime, for that he served 18 months in jail and 2 months of home confinment. He isn't allowed to have a dog as a pet. I think he should be, but that's another TD. It's not like Nike is sponsoring him to make dog-wear or something, just sportswear. If it were Dog-wear you might have a case but it isn't and you don't.
His crime isn't a sports crime, it is a dog crime. Nike is a sports company, not a dog company. He should be allowed to sign with Nike without anyone thinking worse of the company.
Dogs are pets, is he any worse than people who abuse other animals, or people? NO! just because it is a common, pet animal, doesn't make the crime any worse.
Vick has changed. Would you let him near your dog? I would.

I lived in england 15years on a visa..
I should have applied for dual citizen ship.
But I had my head up my butts..
This Country is a walking contradiction..
You Have religious right wing..
And then garbage like this happens..
This country claims it has high morals..
And Yet torture in the prisons of
Guantanamo and abu ghriab is acceptable?
And Now the biggest sports company is glorifying
Its a mind fuc_k for kids..
It Sends them the message that its ok to torture dogs..
Jesus died for the sins of mankind..
If Jesus was head of nike he would not allow this..
Only in america baby..

You had less than 30 words relating to why Vick should not be able to be endorsed by Nike.
I feel no reason to waste more time on this.
but I will anyway cuz I'm bored
I am a kid and i do not get the message that it is ok to torture dogs at all. I wouldn't want to spend 18 months in jail, losing millions of dollars like vick did. Vick is no worse than your neighbor or the guy down the street who tortures their cats, dogs, and fish. Vick just happens to be famous, and for good reason.
I'm not going to comment on the Jesus stuff other than to say he is dead and if you wish to believe it, in heaven. if Jesus were alive he would damn the whole NFL, by common christian morals they're all going to hell anyway, so he wouldn't support any of them.
repeat after me:
I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, (under God), indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
America is the only country that is great enough to allow for this. Go back to your dictatorial, communist ways if you'd like.
