Buehrle is not a Michael Vick fan

Posted on: February 9, 2011 4:50 pm
 
Mark Buehrle Count White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle as one person who will not be sending a congratulatory note to Michael Vick for his NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award.

Buehrle and wife Jamie (photo courtesy of The Telegraph of Alton, Ill.) are huge dog advocates. They started a "Sox for Strays" program to support animal rescue groups. They're on billboards promoting pet adoption. In December they volunteered to pay $2,400 in vet bills for a Sheltie found near Buehrle's hometown with an arrow stuck through its abdomen.

So Buehrle isn't ready to forgive Vick's dog fighting history, and made that clear in comments to MLB.com.

"Even if you are not a dog lover, how can you sit there and make two dogs fight and one is going to die?" he said. "How could you do that if you are somewhat sane?

"He had a great year and a great comeback, but there were times where we watched the game and I know it's bad to say, but there were times where we hope he gets hurt. Everything you've done to these dogs, something bad needs to happen to these guys."

Curiously, those quotes, as well as some comments about Vick by Jamie Buehrle, were removed from the story by MLB.com while I was writing this item. But we have the original, the Chicago Tribune reported the excised quote before it was taken down, and the story's author sent the quotes out via Twitter.

Again, do I stutter?? VICK IS SCUM. And those who support him are scum too. Keep on supporting this piece of garbage murderer you brainwashed puppets. What a piece of crap this guy is.

And for your information, I don't support Rapelisberger either, you moron.  Rapelisberger was never charged. Vick was. Big difference. They're both idiots in my opinion.  So go back to supporting Dog Killer, you scumbag.

I agree with Buehrle and MANY Eagles fans do also. Vick is the shame of Philly.

Are you kidding me? If Vick won the Super Bowl in Philly, not only does everyone praise him as GOD, he is redeemed.(Funny how a Super Bowl victory changes a man's life.) In addition, they'll be people borrowing branding irons so Vick can brand their dog like cattle, before they kill that animal. It would be a delicacy.

Well I guess I am a scum.  But it is funny you not saying anything about Big Ben who could not keep his Penis in his pants.  Oh yeah a dogs life is more inmportant than a human's life.  Wonder what Big Ben do for the young lady so that the story would quit down.  So you young man is an piece of scum.  Have a good life lay down and cuddle with a dog and not a human.

You need to get a life outside of the internet. Unless you were there you don't know what happened. People get exonerated every year by dna so what you think is your business.

It is amazing how someone who has been blessed with fortune but have no class as a Christian or other relationship with The Almighty God can say stupid things about another person. It's all about thinking you are perfect and everyone else is imperfect. The big picture is that once you go to jail and do your time it is over as long as you don't violate parole. For you(Buehrle) it is better to keep your mouth shut and let the world wonder than open your mouth and let the world know.

Buehrle is just saying what most of us think.  I am a Bears fan and I rooted for the PACKERS when they played the Eagles because I didn't want to see this d-bag go to the Super Bowl. He's scum.

The media is just as guilty for making Vick into some hero. He is what he is -- a piece of garbage excuse for a human being. He's a scumbag---just like Little Miss Drama Queen Favre and Murderers Lewis and Stallworth.  It's amazing that Lewis still has endorsements after he killed a man and got away with it.

Vick is scum. And you idiots that support this piece of trash are scum too.

Buerhle is a class(less) Act. 

Don't know why you capitalized "act" but ok, we'll move on....

Class acts, especially athletes don't wish another athlete gets hurt in a game. 

But since I'm not an athlete and Buerhle is a loser, I hope a nice line drive right back to the mound ends Buerhle's season early.....
