However, they say that the central message of the call was Obama praising them for using alternative energy sources at their stadium.
Said a spokesperson:
“The President did place a call to Mr. Lurie to discuss plans for the use of alternative energy at Lincoln Financial Field, during which they spoke about that and other issues. He of course condemns the crimes that Michael Vick was convicted of but, as he's said previously, he does think that individuals who have paid for their crimes should have an opportunity to contribute to society again.”
We agree — Vick did terrible things, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for him to be rehabilitated!
