Vick Cancels National Radio Show Appearance

August 28, 2007

Michael Vick was a no show Tuesday to a scheduled interview on the "Tom Joyner Morning Show" where he was suppose to answer questions from callers.

Host Tom Joyner said that Vick's advisers suggested that the football player shouldn't talk at this time because someone might take parts of the interview "out of context."

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty Monday in connection to a dogfighting ring in Virginia. He is scheduled to be sentenced December 10th.

The Atlanta Falcons say that they are not going to cut him from the team at this time. Demonstrators gathered outside of the Georgia Dome last night as the Falcons played a preseason game against Cincinnati. Some waved signs reading "Ban Vick Permanently," while others shouted "We Love Mike!"
