Nike p/u M. Vick again
Houston

I've made several posts about the topic(vick) where as you have not… And if you really want to get technical Nike is a brand, and they simply don't stop being a brand a become a store chain because they happen to have outlet malls, as for people boycotting if u didn't say it, well then that comment didn't apply to you so there is yet again no reason to run your mouth off. And your ignorance is blindingly obvious if you prove my point with your own words... You stated you don't wish to share your opinion on the matter of vick which you admitted to not caring about the subject or Nike.... THE TOPIC OF THE THREAD!!! therefore why post on it if u have no opinion or bearing in the matter. If who I made the comments to felt the need to comment back they would, they don't need you to speak for them, but you take it upon yourself to do so... Speak for you.... And you alone, so go post something on your Martha Stewart board instead

Are you kidding me? Seriously you have anger issues if you can't admit your post was snide and choose to voice your opinions in such a disrespectful manner. You are mad because you got called out on your " uncalled for" post and were wrong to boot. Period, end of story.

1. Posting "several" posts doesn't make you an expert or better than me, not sure why it even matters if you've posted about it and I haven't?
2. As I previously stated, Nike IS a brand, maybe you missed that in my post- "technically"
3. I said " commonly" in outlet malls! Their stores are everywhere!!
4. It's my blinding ignorance that you don't use better vernacular to articulate your views on a public forum AND don't know nike is a brand that has retail stores? Ok then, you got me!
5. I don't have to post my opinion about Vick or Nike in order to correct your mistake on this thread, it's a public forum and I can choose to respond to the OP or anyones sub post
6. I wasnt defending kipawa, I wad correcting you, which was all too worth while since you think you are a know or all purely based on the way you choose to respond to kipawas post about not shopping with nike
7. I'm 23 and have no interest in Martha Stuart, not even sure how that entered your head and made you think, " that's a good one" , it wasn't! I can appreciate humor that but that wasn't humorous

@BaNHANerZzz:

Good thing Nike isn't a store then huh… It's a brand, and u obviously believe that your perfect and don't make mistakes because u have never done anything to be sorry for or be forgiven for. He went to FEDERAL prison, not time out in the corner. And if you all wanna be so ritious with tour pseudo Christian beliefs... Adultry (woods) is a specific law from god... Dog fighting even for money however is not

You are welcome to have your own feelings on this matter, but this response was pretty out of line. No one on the thread indicated that they were perfect or didn't make mistakes, nor did they allude to any religious beliefs of any sort.

I doubt there are many people out there with spotless moral character for Nike to choose from, but I think it is fair to expect that on a forum about dog ownership, most members would be advocates of humane treatment of dogs.

Yes, I agree, this man did unspeakable things to the dogs in his care. He can be sorry, he can be forgiven, but I won't spend a dime on anything he is part of. I can't be queen of the world, but I can "vote" with my $$ and he will lose everytime.

Houston

1- didn't claim to be an expert, simply stated I post about the topic whilst you play forum police
2- agreed yes it is a brand… Good point
3-yes there are Nike outlet stores across the country thank you for your findings
4- vernacular and articulate are really good words... And probably the first two anyone who wants to boast about having a vocabulary would use to seem intellectual or to imply a high education, I don't care whose vocabulary is what, and I guarantee I could stand my own in that field. So I said a smart comment... And...
5-yes you may not have to but that's what it's supposed to be for... Weighing in on a topic... While u may use it for other purposes such as informing people of the percentage of one skittle color over another or whatever off subject things you find yourself writing
6- you weren't defending kipawa, well I'm sure she doesn't need you to defend her if she felt personally attacked, she has a voice, and more importantlySHE actually has an opinion on the subject being discussed. Let's see, you read a post, had no bearing or opinion on subject matter... Continued reading, made an inference that kipawa was being
attacked and took it upon your self to undermine part of my post that had little to do
with the overall post... Sounds kinda like defending to me, but doesn't matter. And then the shocker you had a problem with how I chose to respond... (Whoop) forum police stop voicing opinion now!
7- as for dear old Martha that was a tamed down comment, and mediocre at best I'll admit, but I found it would probably be uncouth to say something like, why does your b/f or husband allow you so much time out of the kitchen and bedroom to fritter away time in this manner, so I chose the Martha Stewart joke, so as not to offend others.
That is all
See you next Tuesday

Being forum police would imply that ive ever called someone out on their bs before, which ive never, you are an exception and your posts only reinforce my decision to have done so. Very classy choice of words to call some a " see you next Tuesday ( c.u.n.t)- you shouldn't be on this forum and I intend to voice that to the moderator. You clearly have no intentions of following forum rules therefore not adding anything of value to this forum. You couldn't own up to your nasty post and have decided to be vulgar to me bc I called you out on your mistake after reading a thread I've enjoyed following only for you to ruin with your bad attitude and dirty mouth. I'm done with this thread until the moderator contacts you or I!

Houston

It wasn't meant to be out of line it's just there seems to bee this holier than thou attitude toward this man, who has paid his price for his actions, and that's all I meant. "his" dogs were actually hardly his dogs at all, they were kept many states away when he lived in Atlanta, under others "care" or lack there of and fought, and yes it's his fault and yes he is to blame but, watch any video interview or public speaking he puts on at schools around the country, not forced, of his own free will, and you can easily tell it's not the
same man he was. And Im not a Nike supporter of any kind and don't like corporate greed in the least I'm just saying all the little jimmys and janes in the world not buying stuff cuz that won't matter. And stated the majority of peoples moral code in the us is Christian and it is specifically written as a major, your going to hell forever sin of adultry, in tiger woods case, as opposed to vick. Not saying it's logical or right it's just fact. And yes I to find it a horrible thing what he did, but believe he has changed

Houston

I never called you that… That's ridiculous

If its not CUNT, then what does see you next tues mean?

Houston

I'm going out of town until Tuesday and will be unable to continue this bull**** back and forth with you

I find it very hard to believe that anyone who participates in a "dog rescue" forum would support Vick.
From the official investigation report. "The Aug. 28, 2008 report describes how Vick and two associates, Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips, "thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs belonging to Bad Newz Kennels injure or kill the other dogs." The report also states that in mid-April of last year, Vick, Peace and Phillips executed approximately six dogs by hanging and drowning. The hanging deaths occurred "by placing a nylon cord over a 2x4 that was nailed to two trees located next to the big shed." The men drowned the others "by putting the dogs' heads in a five-gallon bucket of water."

First Basenji's

@DebraDownSouth:

For anyone who thinks this pond scum should be "forgiven"… that he paid for his crime.. he never showed any remorse. He mouthed words to get a job.

That just made my stomach churn….I wrote them an email as well. Boycott Nike!

WELL…. regarding your ridiculous comments:

1. You're incorrect. Nike does have stores. http://niketown.nike.com/storelocator/storelocator.jsp?sitesrc=usns_helpcgi-bin/niketown_locator.cfg/php/loc/enduser/loc.php?l=shop,store_locator
2. When have I said I was perfect? That must only be your interpretation of me. Thank you!
3. My beliefs are not psuedo Christian. They are from the school of common sense.
4. If you read your bible, outside of the Ten Commandments (which I think you are referring to as law) I believe you will find that there are many areas indicating not harming life.
5. If you don't think what MV did was wrong, I feel sorry for any dogs you own.

@BaNHANerZzz:

I'm going out of town until Tuesday and will be unable to continue this bull**** back and forth with you

Well, I am personally hoping you are gone CUNA -
See You Never Again.

1. You need anger management.
2. The word is righteous, just so you know.
3. I am not Christian. That you drag any religion into it is pretty bizarre.
3. It is adultery, not adultry. And comparing 2 adults breaking marriage vows to vile animal abuse is really warped.
4. Abusing animals is wrong. Humane treatment of animals is required in the bible. But again, it has NOTHING to do with religion.
5. You need anger management.

@BaNHANerZzz:

INow until you have something remotely to do with the topic to state, go play post fact checker somewhere else. Because I was only implying that Nike could give 2 ****s about a boycott

1. You still need anger management.
2. It was on topic.
3. If you are impressively uneducated enough about business to believe that ANY company doesn't mind bad publicity and that the monetary hit doesn't matter, you might want to take a few classes and learn.
4. Your potty mouth is unnecessary. As my mother said, intelligent people can find words that aren't crude to express their thoughts. People use crude words when they have nothing worth saying but hope for shock value.
5. You need anger management and class. Sadly I don't think you can learn class.

@BaNHANerZzz:

no reason to run your mouth off.
And your ignorance is blindingly obvious if you prove my point with your own words… You stated you don't wish to share your opinion on the matter of vick which you admitted to not caring about the subject or Nike....

And you alone, so go post something on your Martha Stewart board instead

1. You need anger management. I am hoping your nearly incoherent rant is because you are so mad, not because you also need to learn English. However, the image of you sitting at the keyboard, spittle flowing down your enraged face, is fairly entertaining. Don't short out the keyboard.
2. Anyone can post on any thread. You aren't the thread police. In fact, your posts PROVE that anyone can post on any thread.
3. You would benefit more from Martha Stewart as I am sure she has some hobbies you could take up to help calm and control your potty mouth and spewing.
4. You need anger management, class and possibly a writing class.

@BaNHANerZzz:

..took it upon your self to undermine part of my post that had little to do
with the overall post…
(Whoop) forum police stop voicing opinion now!
but I found it would probably be uncouth to say something like, why does your b/f or husband allow you so much time out of the kitchen and bedroom to fritter away time in this manner
See you next Tuesday

1. You need anger management.
2. Again, anyone can "take it on" to undermine any post, particularly when they are so EASY to undermine, like yours.
3. YOU are the one trying to be the forum police, lol. That you fail to see the hypocrisy is a bit amusing (but not as amusing as the impotent spittle flow).
4. Thank you for the husband thing and the See YOU. LOL copying and saving so if they remove it, I can share with others who might for one moment question the evaluation that you lack any class and are one ugly piece of work.
5. Did I mention you need anger management?

Now this is the one that shows a lot more than you can possibly imagine.
1. You still need anger management.
2. I am absolutely holier than Michael Vicks. Just as I am holier than a pedophile, racist, bigot, homophobic etc. Get over it. Oh wait… let's get back to that hypocrisy issue you have. YOU judge people for judging Vicks. LOL.
3. Whether some believe in Christianity, whether you are right that adultery (you really need to learn to spell that word since you seem so fixated on it) means going to hell, you might want to do a poll. I am pretty sure you'd be amazed to find that more people consider animal abuse worse than adultery. But again, you might want to take your own advice about a new board. Go to a religious one where your continued rant about Christianity is appropriate. Has nothing to do with this.
4. A new man? ROFLMAO, yeah I will give you that JAIL may have changed him. But he gives talks because he needs to improve his image. And frankly, I don't care if he genuinely feels sorry. You cannot be HUMAN and do what he did. Your post literally made my stomach turn. Do you even REALIZE that you said they weren't REALLY HIS DOGS because he didn't care for them personally? Do you even REALIZE that you pretty blatantly indicated that because of that, it was almost okay? SO I guess if you pick a dog off the street, abusing it is less horrible than your OWN dog? You need more help than anger management. I doubt any service has enough dedicated professionals to help you, though.

Is he a personal friend of yours? Your posts seem to be rabidly defending him, and I can't really think of a good reason why that would be. A simpler response to the thread would have been, "I feel that he has paid his debt to society and has truly changed. I also don't feel that boycotting such a large corporation would have much of an impact." Your reactions to this thread just seem unreasonably heated. Your previous posts in other threads have not had this ranting style, so I'm just wondering what the real reason behind it is.

BaNHANerZzz.
Deb is right on. You need to rethink your whole idea of this subject.
