Michael Vick Criticizes Dogfighting Video Game 'Dog Wars'

Michael Vick has joined the Humane Society in speaking out against a video game that is probably only going to be played by smartass kids who are playing it to make fun of Michael Vick. Now everybody get out there and vote for the Madden 12 cover!

We'll assume Vick is highly opposed to Angry Birds as well. The former Atlanta Falcons QB:

I've come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street. Now, I am on the right side of this issue, and I think it's important to send the smart message to kids, and not glorify this form of animal cruelty, even in an Android app.    

Facebook groups are springing up to encourage Google to ban the game, which of course will only make it more popular. I do like the idea of the Associated Press requesting a comment from Google on the story, since the company pretty much only bans Android apps that harm Android devices or somehow involve stealing from Google -- YouTube rippers and so forth.
