    yeah he will put out his own line of shoes made of dog leather.

    soon i hear you may be able to get a Michael Vick license plate made by Michael Vick HIMSELF. put a Nike swoosh on it and everyone's happy.

    Will this hurt him financially? I wonder if somehow sales were tied into his contract?

    It would probably be just a drop in the bucket, but if it hurt him any at all, that would be a good thing IMO.

    The Mike Vick line of tin bibelots. That has potential.

    Sony didn't really have a choice of "Is this the right thing to do".
    PETA and sharpton among a dozen other groups were all over this from the get go.
