Vick Explains Why He Cancelled 'Oprah' Appearance

When Michael Vick last month suddenly canceled his scheduled (and much hyped) appearance on Oprah, many wondered what the “personal reasons” were behind the decision. Turns out, the star QB and convicted dogfighter felt he was undeserving to make an appearance on the show.

“I just felt that the timing wasn’t right, based on everything that was going on,” he told reporters at the Maxwell Club Awards last week in Atlantic City. “My contract. The CBA. And there were certain things I really didn’t want to touch on at the time. I feel like I need to be more, to do more, to be on that show. So I can talk about the past and talk about the present – how prosperous things are, how bad they once were, and how we can move forward.”

“I need to do more. But I think when I do go on, it’s going to be outstanding,” he added.

While many will never hold Vick in high esteem, others that disagreed with a perceived forgiveness of past transgressions will probably be heartened to know that Vick himself is not done with making amends. Not by a long shot.

And speaking of “being more”, Vick would do well to stand by those words by not going anywhere near that “hero” honor being bestowed on him by the Southeastern Virginia Arts Association later this month. According to a PR rep, while the QB has been made aware of the invitation, he has no plans yet to attend the ceremony.
