Michael Vick committed a brutal and vicious federal crime. He conducted these illegal acts over state lines, thereby increasing the category of his actions to a felony. He was convicted of bankrolling a dog-fighting operation, and served nearly 2 years in prison for his endeavors. However, Michael Vick is an employee of a private organization (and even a team) - the NFL. Therefore, he is a representation of that business organization that could cost his franchise bad publicity and therefore money. Michael Vick has proven to be a liability over the years. After an incident where he was accused of marijuana possession in a Miami airport, and reaching a settlement with a woman who had accused him of knowingly giving her herpes, his reputation has significantly diminished. As a result of his crimes, Michael Vick did not lose his NFL contract and returned to the game to make millions. If people tease him or hold him accountable for a little bit, oh well. Tough. Everything passes anyway.

If Michael Vick agreed to do a show, it proves that he does *not* want to be left alone. He wants public media attention to clear his name and improve his reputation (probably at the insistence of the NFL, and because he wants to make more money). Regardless, extend my arguments.
