The Other Stuff: Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick Declined Interview With Oprah Winfrey

Apparently, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick declined his interview with Oprah Winfrey on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that was scheduled to air on Thursday, February 24th.  He declined because of personal issues, but the topics on-hand may have significantly to do with it — Vick’s time spent in prison, his work with the Humane Society and his triumphant comeback in the NFL.  However, the first topic may have influenced Michael Vick to turn a 180 on the interview.  With the discussion on his time in prison, one of the primary topics will be on what got him there in the first place — his illegal dogfighting ring.  He or Oprah may be able to spin it to lessen the emotional impact, but some of the public have not forgotten nor forgiven.

It’s been two years since his time in prison, and Michael Vick had earned Associated Press 2010 Comeback Player of the Year Award.  Lastly, he set many professional milestones in his career this past season ranging from his quarterback rating of 100.2 to his nine rushing touchdowns.
