    Does anyone recall who the announcer was during the Colts/Bears game? As well as, how do I get in contact with him?

    He was talking about Michael Vick and mentioned that it would be in his best interest to donate to HSUS and PETA to show remorse and would, I imagine, be good "PR"...

    I don't have a problem with him donating money, but if Vick donates money to HSUS and PETA, he is right back in the middle of killing pitbulls... Both HSUS and PETA have encouraged shelters to kill pitbulls without giving them a chance of rescue or adoption as well as, whispering into city officials ears and telling them to ban pitbulls in their cities...

    Quotes from HSUS:

    “We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding ...One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding.”
    — Animal People News

    Quotes from PETA:

    “Did we euthanize some animals who could have been adopted? Maybe.”
    — PETA's Domestic Animal Issues & Abuse Department director Daphna Nachminovitch, in The Virginian-Pilot

    “Humans have grown like a cancer. We're the biggest blight on the face of the earth.”
    — Washingtonian magazine

    “Probably everything we do is a publicity stunt ... we are not here to gather members, to please, to placate, to make friends. We're here to hold the radical line.”
    — USA Today

    “There is no hidden agenda. If anybody wonders about -- what’s this with all these reforms -- you can hear us clearly. Our goal is total animal liberation. [emphasis added]”
    — “Animal Rights 2002” convention

    "In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.”
    — Newsday

    “Our campaigns are always geared towards children and they always will be”
    — PETA vice president Dan Matthews, on the Fox News Network

    “We are complete press sluts.” (ain't that the truth:rolleyes: )
    — Ingrid Newkirk, in The New Yorker

    Please Kill me with Kindness. Thank You, HSUS and PETA ( A must read)

    In short, if you are going to donate Mike Vick, donate to local rescues or shelters, donating to PETA and HSUS isn't going to help your plight anymore because you will essentially STILL be killing pitbulls.

    To the announcer, educate yourself on these animal rights groups before opening your mouth.

    Thank You.

    I believe Ron Jaworshki made that statement you are referring to about the donations to PETA. But the guys doing that game were Mike Tirico,Ron Jaworski and Tony Kornheiser.

    Can this be moved elsewhere ? It's football season now and this is the "New England Patriots Fan Forum" not the "Anything Remotely Related to Football Forum".

    It does have to do with football...

    Michael Vick
    Announcers from the Colts/Bears game making idiotic responses
    My question asking about who the announcers were
    My comments on what the idiotic announcers were talking about

    All football talk about a football game...

    Not exactly. There's a distinctly political (PETA anyone?) twist to this thread.

    The local Humane Society here in NH's Lakes Region, where Mrs. psychoPat volunteers extensively,
    is a No-Kill shelter.
    Never euthanizes any creature.

    Because of this, animals are shipped hither from far away.
    The bride has collected dogs at Manchester airport that were being sent from great distances for placement in NH.
    Her husband is not totally convinced of the wisdom of all of this.

    In any case, within days of the first whiff of the Vick scandal, this shelter's highway sign proclaimed,
    "Suspend Michael Vick!"

    THAT is when i knew he was in serious trouble.

    I have no problem with them euthenizing bad pit bulls because some are very, very bad. That's a little different, though, than electrocuting, hanging and drowning them.

    When do we play the Colts? When do we have to listen to a idiotic announcer who spews crap out of his mouth that he knows nothing about?

    If that's the case, why are we listening to a announcer talk about PETA at a football game, shouldn't he be talking about Peyton Manning and all his glory?

    This happened at a football game, broadcasted to millions on TV who had to listen to this, I'm simply commenting about what he was saying...

    There's a difference between euthanizing bad pitbulls and ALL pitbulls... Not ALL pitbulls are bad, and many are adoptable, but HSUS and PETA don't adovocate this... They want ALL pitbulls dead...

    We have no control over that, do we. This was in the "New England Patriots Fan Forum". I'm not a moderator but it seems clear that once training camp starts a thread should have a fairly direct connection to the Patriots.

    That's not the point. Just because Tirico, Kornheiser, or Jaworski talked about PETA doesn't mean it has to do with football.

    I'm not a pit bull expert so I can't discuss that - but even taking the side of killing them all, there's still a big difference between doing it humanely and torturing them to death.

    So, you telling me you don't find it hypercritial of these two animal rights groups that adovocate the death of all pitbulls getting MILLIONS of dollars by putting up a front with the media on Michael Vick's case? People are sending in their donations THINKING that they will be helping pitbulls and dogs in shelters, when that's the farthest thing happening... This is okay?

    I guess you didn't read what I said. I just said that it's far better than death by torture, I don't know enough about pit bulls to have a strong opinion. I'm also not sure how much you know about what people are thinking when they send money in.

    PETA kills animals. They're complete hypocrites.

    Peta workers 'dumped 80 dead animals in skip'

    By Jacqui Goddard in Miami, Sunday Telegraph
    Last Updated: 11:43pm GMT 27/01/2007

    For 27 years, it has sought to highlight alleged animal rights abuses through often shocking campaigns.

    But People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), the controversial animal "rights" charity, is now horrifying people for an entirely different reason as two of its own workers face accusations of secretly killing dogs and cats.

    In a case that has dismayed the organisation's followers and delighted its critics, Adria Hinkle and Andrew Cook are accused of collecting animals from rescue shelters on the pretext of finding them homes, then giving them lethal injections and dumping their bodies in a supermarket rubbish skip.

    Before I read on, I completely agree with this statement and I have to say that I have a hard time taking anybody seriously who can't acknowledge that. The rest may be counter-productive. People, as individuals, say one thing but generally do another.
