Yay for capitalism, huh? Taste? Well, that's another story entirely.
According to this story, a Daily News reporter ordered one of the Eagles pet jerseys online, customized with Vick's name and number for $39.99.
"Like any other player, (customers) can obtain that name and that jersey if they wish," league spokesman Greg Aiello told the paper. "As far as putting it on the dog product, he's working with humane societies, working to educate others on this issue, so we don't see a problem."
So Vick ran a dog fighting ring and killed a number of dogs...hey, the shirts are made of a "breathable" fabric and "stylish." What's cruel to dogs about that? Ugh.
