Default C. Portis re: Vick/dogfighting -- "If It's Behind Closed Doors, It's OK"

Courtesy of WAVY TV:

"
Quote:
I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not, but it's his property, it's his dog," Portis told WAVY-TV. "If that's what he wants to do, do it. I think people should mind their business."
Apparently Mr. Portis doesn't know that dogfighting is illegal in all 50 states, and is a felony in 48 of them. Witness this other gem directly from his mouth:

Quote:
Portis also told WAVY-TV that he knows "a lot of back roads that got the dog fight if you want to go see it" and that "if it's behind closed doors, it's OK."
Well this made my day, I have to tell you. Because it means that another pretty high profile NFL player has just admitted that he knows where he can go see a dogfight if he wants to. Hopefully this will start to blow the lid off the dogfighting subculture that supposedly has existed in the NFL for a long time, and the thugs who perpetrate it either by direct involvement or by their attendance will become accountable under Sheriff Goodell's regime.

Regardless of whether or not you consider yourself an animal person or are otherwise concerned with their welfare, I hope that others on this board would agree that people who abuse and torture animals deserve punishment to the fullest extent of the law.

Dogfighting is disgusting. People who watch it or partiticpate in it are disgusting. If you're one of those people, I'm calling you disgusting to your face. Deal with it.

So, by Portis' unsurpassed logic, "it's only illegal if ya get caught."

Just another NFL Player thinking they are above reproach and above the law. It's time that the police, DA's office, and even the NFL commissioner himself start making examples of these people.
Just like they would do with the average joe.

I did not like Goodell when he first came into the office. But he has started out out a good note. The best part is that he seems to be doing this for the good of the NFL, not because CBS or NBC have pressured him into doing it.

There was a Redskin o-lineman (I think) being interviewed with Portis and apparently his face was a picture when Portis came out with this crap - a picture that read 'WTF!'.

These opinions are out there, there are many different types of people that make up the NFL playing staff - Portis just happens to be one of the more ignorant brand.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Clinton Portis is a former Miami Hurricane. It really shouldn't surprise any of you that he's this ignorant of the laws and norms of society.

I wish I had seen the O-lineman's face! The ignorance is truly amazing.
