Leroy Butler was always one of my favorite players, from his time at FSU through his heyday in Green Bay. I like his response to the Michael Vick situation as much as I liked the way he played safety.
"My 7-year-old [Danielle] loves animals. We were out shopping for a dog. We were in the car, and I can't listen to sports radio anymore because she heard how they drowned and electrocuted some animals. I looked back there at a red light and she had tears in her eyes. She said, 'I don't understand why somebody would drown a dog.' Now I had to explain it as a parent. I said that sometimes people do stuff that is so terrible that you've got to offset that guy by doing something good. She just kept wiping her tears. She was really bothered by it. It's a stupid thing to do, obviously. But these guys get so arrogant, they don't think about it. You got $30 million, $40 million in the bank, they're on top of the world, no remorse and no one can stop them.''

I don't think Michael Vick understands what a giant piece of shit he looks like right now. Emmit, Emmit, I'm looking at you right now too.
