Very smart move on Vick’s part, the reward didn’t outweigh the risk.
It was one thing when the party was somewhat low key, but once it hit the mainstream media with Swat Teams and extra security it was a disaster waiting to happened.
It is good to see that Vick could see when something bad is about to happen and bail out.
Tony Dungy, who has served as a mentor to Vick, says that party isn’t happening.
“He’s not,” Dungy said when asked on the Dan Patrick Show why Vick was hosting a party. “He is not going to be attending. I don’t know where it started or what, but he’s not going to be there. . . . I think he understands it’s something that’s just not worth it to him.”
The Eagles have also said Vick won’t be attending. Vick hasn’t commented publicly.
Vick apparently initially agreed to serve as the host for a party, but thought better of it when he thought of the potential consequences. Sounds like a good decision, even if it’s a disappointment for people who planned to attend the party, which was billed as “Super Bowl — Dallas Dynasty 2011 — The Michael Vick Experience.”
BSO Super Bowl reporter Ivory Tabb caught up with Vick and the EA Madden Bowl Event last night and here is what he had to say:
“I will not be hosting any parties, I will only be going to NFL sanction events.”
Maybe he has finally learned his lesson that the best way to not get caught in a bad situation is not put yourself in a bad situation.
