Now Michael Vick is even speaking out against virtual dogfighting.
An Android app called Dog Wars has raised the hackles of the Eagles quarterback and the Humane Society of the United States.
"I've come to learn the hard way that dogfighting is a dead-end street," Vick said in a statement released Monday. "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."
Vick has been making other video-game news, as well. If online voters pick him over Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hills, he'll be on the cover of Madden NFL 12, the next edition of the hugely popular pro football game. The winner will be announced at 4 p.m. Wednesday on ESPN.
