04:07 PM ET 06.30 | Bryce Brown made news on Saturday when it was learned that his dogs were seized in a suspected dog fighting operation, but they have since been returned to him, and the Eagles running back insists he is a victim in the case. Brown has now taken to Twitter to defend himself, saying that he and his breeder are both victims of this situation. He also tweeted a picture of him celebrating his dog's birthday to show how he treats them. While Brown didn't appear in court on Friday, his lawyer defended him, showing pictures of him and his wife with their dog, Eilis, demonstrating how much they care for her.

This guy has a solid defense. He didn't kill the animal for cruelty, he killed it for food.Plus, it was his dog, not someone else's dog.He had to put food on his family.

Fine, let him tell Saint Peter and see if it gets him past the gates.

I understand the Farm Bill did not pass, but that is way over the top.

What I don't understand is if he loves his dogs so much, how did they end up at a dog fighting facility in Wisconsin??

To me this is no different than a rural family killing its chickens, goats or cattle for food.

We'll agree to disagree.

Humane society would disagree as well.

Now let me get this straight: they found the head in the garbage, the ribs on the stove, and the rest in the freezer...

And he's arrested on "suspicions"!? That case looks like game, set, match to me.

In Texas, he might have been shot trying to escape.

Because there "might" be more creative ways to deal with this problem.
