He was. And he clarified it today.

But damnit! If people want to give my man Portis a hard time then it's my right as an American (flag unfurls behind me) to make a mountain out of a molehill out of Vilma's comments.

You can try but you have a weak argument. I think Portis is going to catch Sh*& about that comment for some time. Not sure who the Skins player was but he said that the players are still giving him a hard time in a joking way.

I'm not trying to make an argument quite honestly. Truthfully, I probably shouldn't have posted this in the first place. People, as Portis says, have already concluded what they want to conclude about Portis. Many probably before these comments.

Portis would undoubtedly grief. I hope he gets grief in Dallas, then at the end of his 4 touchdown game (we win of course) he caps the night by "peeing like a dog" on the star

He still admitted going to dog fights as a teenager, its horrible, I never thought of watching dogs kill each other when I was that young, why would he admit that in the midst of whats going on with Vick.

How do you know that his dad or older brother didn't take him to these dog fights. He did basically say that he did not see how people got enjoyment out of seeing dogs hurt or killed. Lets not do what the press always does making more of this than it really is.

Joe Thomas was fishing the day of the draft, so he should be banned from the NFL for life! He was purposely ripping a sharp hook into the face of multiple fish for his own sick entertainment! He either kept the fish and skinned them alive or he threw them back in the water maimed and bleeding. Either way it's a disgrace!

Re: Tomlinson Sounds Off on Vick Situation; No One Notices

Haha that fishing analogy is kinda how i feel about this horse racing/dogfighting thing. I'm not an activist nor do I hate animals as we have a family cat and a dog (yea i know talk about cliche). I fully acknowledge that dogfighting is cruel and inhumane, but there are authorities to handle that situation with Vick and I think we should let them take their course. Why does someone like Portis who is merely sounding off on that situation (exercising his 1st amendment rights) have to be vilified by the media and EVEN SKINS FANS? (I recall some people even saying his days in DC are numbered and that we should TRADE him!?!?!) When did the opinion of athletes interfere with their ability to play and our willingness to root for them? I think what Ali did by dodging the draft was cowardly and a cheap publicity stunt BUT i would have wholeheartedly attended his matches and cheered for him if had I been alive at the time. In a discussion about boxing I wouldn't call him a "bum" cuz of his draft-dodging and try to downplay his impact on the sport of boxing. Ditto Jim Brown and his reason for retiring. They were still DOMINANT athletes and that has nothing to do with their personal political views.

I don't think most Skins fans really vilified Portis for what he said it was more of a disapointment of him saying that its Vicks business if he wants to have illegal dog fighting. The problem is 1) its illegal 2) it cruel to the dogs. Even if Vick is cleared as having no wrong doing Portis cannot erase his words. Will I stop chearing him on? No but will remember what he said. Yes.
