Odd for Michael Vick to be the voice of reason when it comes to fighting… but he doesn’t think Cary Williams respects him.
Les Bowen explains in a paragraph that should be three paragraphs but the blind mice running Philly.com still don’t know how to format text:
Approached first by a reporter who congratulated him for being a peacemaker, Vick said: “I try to be the peacemaker, but these young dudes don’t respect me.” He was taking a phone call, which cut off further dialogue right then, but he jerked his head in the direction of Williams. Later, after the call, Vick said, with emotion in his voice: “Our maturity level’s gotta be on a whole different plane. Regardless of who the catalyst was for the whole fight, that doesn’t matter. We’ve gotta be men. We’re not guys who are out on the street, fighting one another. We’re teammates … It’s game week. We don’t have time for that. I don’t. It’s a distraction.” When asked if he was OK with Williams in the aftermath, Vick said: “Oh, yeah, 20 seconds and that’s it. Everybody moves on.’
A thought: How long until Cary Williams is run out of town with pitchforks? You… just get the feeling this isn’t going to end well.
