Michael Vick talks victory, failure & deliverance in UPTOWN Magazine's October/November issue.

“I play the game the way I know how to play it,” Vick tells UPTOWN, after the magazine spent months trying to negotiate an interview. He’s understandably cautious about whom he talks to and what he says.

“You have to take precautions, but this is what I love to do. I want to be there for my team and do what I have to do as a quarterback to be successful.”

While Vick's road to redemption has been paved with glory, his one major regret is not being allowed to own a dog again as part of his probation agreement. In previous interviews Vick has said he misses being a dog owner and would like to have one as a pet someday.

"I would love to get another dog in the future. I think it would be a big step for me in the rehabilitation process," Vick said, according to NBC News and TheGrio.com.

But animal rights advocates say Vick's dog ban is a small price to pay.

"Just as convicted pedophiles aren't allowed free access to children, anyone who is responsible for hanging, electrocuting, or shooting dogs and who causes them to suffer in other unimaginable ways should never again be allowed access to dogs," said Lisa Lange, vice president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "All things considered, it is a very small price to pay, especially compared to the suffering endured by the dogs who were abused and killed in the Bad Newz Kennels." Source

    I wouldn't do that if I were you, unless you stocked on Valtrex and latex. Check out who is Ron Mexico. He still cute in the face and run like a beast.

  • Anna

    As much as I don't agree w/what he did, what was he suppose to do w/the dogs after they tasted blood? Put them back on the streets to attack communities?

  • caligirl

    @Anna - Many of the dogs were adopted and have been featured in magz. I think so were also put down.

  • http://Www.yallaintchit.com Man, I just don’t care™

    Nigga looking like a homeless bum.

    I'm rooting for this nigga on the field because of how they tried to dog (pun intended) that nigga. BUT, I know he is NOT a "winning" QB. He will never win a big game. He will probably win 2 more playoff games MAX in his career.

    The BEST thing that probably happened to him is the dog situation becuase it robbed him of time on the field so his fans will always be able to CLAIM he WOULD have won championships had that not happened.

    In reality he was never good enough to championships. Just make entertaining plays from time to time.

    Dogs trained to fight aren't automatically aggressive. In fact, dog fighters HAVE to be gentle and docile with PEOPLE. They are just aggressive towards other dogs.

    Did he talk about why he picked the name Ron Mexico when going to pick up his Valtrex?
