From a distance, these guys seem slow to get it. I could believe that they do dog fights, cock fights, fist fights, thumby wars, bull baiting, gladiatorial combat, Christian persecution and any other crass behavior now considered uncivilized.
This story breaks on the same day that ESPN.com News Service published a story that two of Vick's "friends" are convinced that he had an "affinity" for the dog fighting culture and was aware of the [alleged] dog fighting activity at the house. Friends?
A "friend" wouldn't rat out a friend and remain nameless. A friend wouldn't throw a friend under a bus so publicly. Those two guys are just "acquaintances."
This is Washington, DC. We know a thing or two about anonymous sources. At the White House, the "unnamed source" often turns out to be the vice president, who is saying something secretly that he won't say publicly. [That logic only makes sense in politics.] When the "unnamed source" speaks, Washingtonians know there is a hidden agenda.
So, what's the agenda of Vicks "friends?" I don't know, so I don't know how to evaluate their claim. Thus, I'm taking this story with a shaker of salt, while acknowledging that Ron Mexico could well be involved in a dog fight ring.
