On or Off the Field, Vick Rakes In Serious Cash

On or Off the Field, Vick Rakes In Serious Cash

Published February 11, 2008

Posted Sept. 10, 2007 – Michael Vick may have lost his position on the NFL field and several endorsement deals, but he's still proving that no matter what, his name can still fetch some major coins.

Believe it or not, the notes he used last month when he told the world he was sorry for his part in a dog-fighting scandal are going up for sale in an online auction, The Associated Press reports.

So far, bids for the one-page, six-point outline have gone past the $10,000 mark.

The Humane Society of the United States is selling the notes at auction
and the proceeds will go into an account dedicated to the prevention of dog-fighting.

Vick's attorney says the notes weren't written by Vick. But a spokesman for the attorney won't say whether it was an adviser or attorney who wrote the notes for the football star, AP reports. 

A worker for the Humane Society found the paper on the podium after Vick finished speaking.

Is it right for Vick's name to be used for other organizations to benefit from? Click "Discuss Now" to post your comment.
