    Michael Vick Chew toy

    The St. Paul Saints are rumoured to be doing an upcoming promotion : a free Michael Vick chew toy for spectators at an upcoming game. Its not mentioned in a news story so I don't know about the rumour. Has anyone else heard about it? These chew toys were criticised by the Jacksonville humane society. I don't know if the rumour is justified - but they did offer a Bud Squealig doll a year or so ago. I laughed so hard when I heard about it.

    Yes, this is legit. I saw it featured on one of the afternoon business shows, possibly on CNBC. Looked pretty good. You can probably find them soon on ebay I would imagine.

    This will never see the market. Intellectual Property issues.

    How so, if it doesn't say "Vick" or "Falcons" or have an NFL logo on it?
    Never overlook the obvious

    Maybe since it's been advertised as Michael Vick, that's a problem?

    Then they should have advertised it as Ron Mexico.

    He would have to be identified as Michael Vick somehow. Otherwise, it loses context and the neighbors just see your dog walking around with a chew toy shaped like an African American man in his mouth.

    St. Paul Saints plans Michael Vick chew toy promotion
    Staff and Associated Press

    Article Last Updated: 08/21/2007 01:32:25 PM CDT


    Dogs around the Twin Cities will soon have a Michael Vick pig to chew on.

    The St. Paul Saints minor league baseball team plans to hand out the chew toy to the first 1,500 fans at its home game tonight. It's the team mascot, a pig, in the Atlanta Falcons team colors and with Vick's name and number on it.

    A portion of the proceeds from the game will be donated to the newly merged Humane Society,

    Saints promotion director Jack Weatherman said the team wanted to take a stand on the dogfighting charges against Vick. Weatherman said the public reaction has been totally one-sided, with many fans asking if they can buy the Vick chew toy - and with absolutely no negative reaction.

    Weatherman said the Atlanta Falcons have not contacted him, either.

    Vick's lawyer said Monday that Vick plans to enter a guilty plea next week.
