200 rally to support Vick


Sunday, a bunch (OK, a small bunch) of Falcon fans rallied outside the Georgia Dome to show their support for embattled Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick. Based on the following quotes from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, you decided if it helped or hurt him:
"We Support Vick a Human Being Over Dogs," was the message of one placard to honking passing cars on Northside Drive.
"Look at what he has done for this city - he's made this city a ton of money every Sunday," said Hiram Melvin, 50 of Decatur. "This dogfighting has been going on for years. It's not something that just started. It's not a big deal."
SCLC President Charles Steele Jr. said his organization prefers to focus on Vick's redemption and plans to honor him for his community contributions at its convention next month in Atlanta. "We need to support him no matter what the evidence reveals," Steele said.
On the West Coast, former Falcons coach Jim Mora said he has given Vick moral support in a text message Wednesday. " I just wanted to let him know that I was thinking about him,"
Yes, Jim, I'm sure you were.
