SORT BY Relevancy
This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will ask the questions, why can't NFL fans and animal lovers forgive Michael Vick after all these years. After serving 19 months in prison and it being 6 plus years since his relesase, hasn't he paid his debt to society? We all make mistakes. Why can't he be forgiven? Do some people have more love for animals than peope? Is Michael Vick being treated as fairly as his white counterparts? Tonight on Thursday Night Football, Michael Vick starts as quarterback against much protest. We will be watching to see how much our society has grown. Some of the same people want black people to forget 300 plus years of slavery, but can't get over Michael Vick and the mistakes he made in his early 20's. If we exiled everybody who made mistakes in there teens and 20's, how many of us would be left? We'd like to know what you think on this subject.

On this edition of The Versus Podcast, we're joined by Justin Tinsley of ESPN's The Undefeated as we discuss the weird obsession that fans have with seeing athletes like Michael Vick punished past the point of the time they served behind bars. Once the time is served, why were so many Steelers fans adamant about not wanting Vick, yet when the Oakland Raiders had the chance to acquire Aldon Smith, their fans were up in arms celebrating? Is it because it's all about what value they bring to the club? We discuss.
Plus, we discuss Derrick Rose and the Dallas Cowboys and how it makes Tinsley quite sad.
I would like to discuss the possibility of bringing Vick back and what it would mean to the city of Atlanta. Let's talk out loud. Join the show at 6:30pm. Call (818)301-5834.
It is a shame there isn't much news surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers recently. If there were injuries, intriguing signings, and a team preparing for their final "dress rehearsal" of the preseason...oh wait, all of that is stuff is going on in the Steel City this week.

GROWING UP VICK
THE STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE OF THE VICK FAMILY
"Growing Up Vick" is a compelling book about the challenges of growing up in poverty, but having the strength and fortitude to rise above your situation.
"Poverty is not permanent." says the author.
The book also reveals the challenges of being blood related to a superstar athlete and the good and bad about the superstar lifestyle. She is the aunt of NFL Superstar Michael Vick, who was once the highest paid athlete in NFL history.
Ms. Vick also discusses her new life in politics and what she found out behind closed doors about the political life in her hometown.

The Steelers' decision to sign Michael Vick is already receiving some serious backlash in Pittsburgh.
Over 15,000 fans have put their name on a petition calling for the team to get rid of Vick, who signed a one-year deal with the Steelers on Tuesday.
From the petition:
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!!
As of 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, 15,463 people had signed the petition.
The fans are upset because of Vick's past: In 2007, the former No. 1 overall pick wassentenced to 23 months in a federal prison for running a dogfighting ring in Virginia. Vick served 21 months of the sentence in a Kansas prison before spending the final two months under home confinement.
Ava, Charlene and Evelyn’s story is like a reality show on paper. Any woman that’s ever felt like they’ve been made a fool of by a man that they’ve slept with will gravitate toward this story and take notes!
BITTER tells the story of three women from Boston, Massachusetts that were violated, deceived and beaten down by love and their struggle with restoring trust in their current relationships.
Ava, a pharmaceutical sales representative is married to Brian, a good looking, college educated postal worker. His problem is that he is cheap and has a different agenda that Ava is not aware of. This new agenda brings out a side of Ava that she thought was buried in her past.
Charlene, a human resources director at an insurance company, is engaged to Derek. Derek is gorgeous, never finished college and only works retail jobs. Charlene and Derek have plans to get married, but one of them is withholding a secret from the other. This secret will either allow room for forgiveness once it is revealed or leave one of them standing alone at the altar.
Evelyn is a program director at a non-profit organization. She is dating Fritz, a very sexy man with an exotic look, who works in corporate America. He is giving, patient, and treats her so well that she thinks he’s too good to be true. Her last relationship left her with major trust issues. Will Evelyn’s paranoia cause her to lose Fritz?
