Mike Vick

Last week, the announcement came that Mike Vick will be joining the Steelers, but fans of the team are not happy about it!

Vick was arrested eight years ago and imprisoned for 21 months, for allegedly funding dog fighting on his own property. Today, Vick has restored is place in the NFL. Steelers’ fans have created a petition on Change.org, with hopes of getting his job offer revoked. The petition currently has 20k signatures and counting!

The originator of the petition left Vick a comment about his feelings toward the athlete: “Michael Vick is a convicted felon and no-class piece of crap. He is also a terrible QB which is why he has no team. Let’s united as Steeler fans – as NFL fans – and stop him from playing on our team! Steelers fans united! Sign to keep Vick from ever wearing the coveted Steelers uniform!!”

Some outraged fans even took their frustrations to social media. Read the post below written by an anonymous Facebook user:

I applaud your decision to be outraged over the Steelers signing Michael Vick. You’ve overlooked Big Ben getting accused of sexual assault, Hines Wardgetting DUI’s while cheating on his wife with half of the city, you can’t wait for Le’Veon Bell to get back after his drug-related charges and suspension. Hell, you called for the Steelers to bring back Jeff Reed and his multiple arrests for disorderly conduct and assaulting paper towel dispensers after Suisham got hurt. You acted like we won the lottery when the team brought back James Harrison who was arrested for domestic violence. Granted none of those guys hurt puppies – Just their family, loved ones, various women that they raped or beat up, but you can cheer for them because hey, no dogs were harmed, I guess. Never mind that Vick manned, pled guilty, served his time, took his punishment, and has been by ALL reports nothing short of a model teammate since returning to the NFL. Thankfully none of YOU did dumb stuff in your 20’s that you request. Jesus forgives, but NOT THE CITY OF CHAMPIONS DAMMIT!

The team’s first day of practice was on Wednsday, which also happened to be “National Dog Day!”

It is going to be a long season for Mike Vick!
