Mike Vick didn’t make any friends this week. The article the cover references is this article, with quotes from a bunch of Giants about how they believed their hits on Vick were perfectly clean. Of course they do.
Michael Vick (or is Mike Vick I don’t know) on Sunday voiced that he had some issues with how officials called the Philadelphia Eagles loss to the Ne wYork Giants on Sunday. He wondered aloud publicly why hits on him don’t draw the same 15-yard penalties they draw when administered to other quarterbacks.
He even did the “hey, I’m not complaining” even though he was doing nothing but complaining bit, which of course is going to come across as whining.
And his “fractured hand” turned out to be nothing but a dislocated blood vessel now sitting above the bone. I’m sure it hurts like hell, as Vick is sporting a cast, but it’s just a very bad bruise, not all that serious. And as we learned in this city (the land of Jay Cutler’s home team) when people believe your injuries are less serious than they actually are, you’re going to get hell for it.
Hence, whining about officials + decreased injury perception + idiotic low-brow newspaper owned by purveyor of dreck Rupert Murdoch and serving the fanbase of a rival team = this graphic, which you can see much closer by clicking above. At this point I’d like to quote the 1980s spy film parody “Top Secret,” “Klaus is a moron who knows only what he reads in the New York Post.”
But hey at least they didn’t make Vick white like ESPN the magazine, which ironically enough actually turned him into Brian Austin Green.
