Nobody liked Michael Vick for a loooong time after he got caught making dogs fight to the death, and some would argue that it STILL hasn't been long enough!

He HAS changed a lot of minds about him, though — through what we've seen as reform and a sincere effort to change his ways. Did you know that he didn't do it on his own, though?

Like any good sports player, he was coached… and he paid a hefty sum for it! We're talking $111k+ for an elite crisis management team to re-brand him!

According to the source (and court docs), here's how Sitrick & Company went about making Vick the likable person we see today (for most):

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadPetsCuteness!DogRescueAwwwww

Poor Sam…we're just glad he's own the road to recovery and leaving his past behind him.

Sam is a dog that was rescued when a dogfighting arena was raided. The pooch has part of his face missing and he lived in a bunker type cage before he was taken away.

Sixteen other dogs were rescued along with Sam, who is recovering thanks to the Humane Society.

Who would want to hurt such a cutie! He just wants some affection!

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a big problem with Michael Vick owning another dog.

The quarterback chatted up Piers Morgan and once the host brought up the fact that his ban on owning dogs had ended, Vick said another dog may be in his future.

For his kids. But the ASPCA ain't buying it.

Nike Re-Signs Michael Vick

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadFootballMichael Vick

Vick Nike Resign

It's been four years since Michael Vick was dropped from Nike and universally despised for dogfighting.

We're now getting word that, yes, indeed it IS a 4 year period that's required before everyone just happens to be okay with what you've done and is willing to pay you millions of dollars again.

Let's put that in perspective: If you turn 21, you still have 4 years before your insurance rate is lowered at 25. It takes four years to be forgiven for being young and meaning you don't have to pay as much anymore, even when you have a perfect driving record.

And apparently it's the same amount of time before you're forgiven for watching and training dogs to kill each other for sport.

While we recognize that he's making an effort, we're not sure where the effort is coming from. Our guess is wanting those fat paychecks again, because let's be honest: if someone can be that cruel to dogs, can they ever move on from being that person?

"Michael acknowledges his past mistakes," Nike said in a statement. "We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field."

"Michael is committed to working with Nike and wants to utilize his platform as a professional athlete to have a positive impact on our youth," said Andrew Stroth, the Chicago-based attorney who negotiated the deal for Vick.

If you ask us, cruelty to animals like that is unbelievable. Having the same life you had before handed right back to you and making the same amount of money just makes no sense to us. Think of how well that money could be spent on much better role models.

Do U agree with Nike?
