Starbury: What's So Bad About Dogfighting?

Well, it didn't take long to find some genius willing to go on record not just supporting Michael Vick, but dogfighting as well.

And that special someone is none other than New York Knicks point guard and MENSA member Stephon Marbury.

Embattled Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick has a friend -- and fellow doggie disrespecter -- in Stephon Marbury.

"I think we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals," the Knick point guard told Capital News 9, an Albany TV station. "You know, from what I understand, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors.

"I think it's tough that we build up Michael Vick and then we break him down."
So since it's "behind closed doors," it's OK. Well, most murders probably occur "behind closed doors," so I'll assume in Marbury's mind, that's a sport.

I guess when this intellectual titan named himself "Starbury," he wasn't talking "star" pupil.
Some of Vick's teammates shared Marbury's support.

"Mike is very human," Alge Crumpler, who who came into the NFL at the same time as Vick, said. I think this whole ordeal has kind of dehumanized him for the last couple of months. But he's hurting. I do know that. That's a fact. He is hurting."
Aww, the poor guy.

He should be hurting. The dumbass just flushed $100 million and is looking at jail time.
Others disagreed.

"He's not on the team," running back Warrick Dunn said. That pretty much makes him an ex-teammate."

My respect for Warrick Dunn, high already, just escalated.
