Just Too Easy

Clinton Portis, RB for now for the Redskins, decided this offseason just wouldn't be complete without his expert commentary on the Michael Vick dogfighting situation in Surry County, Virginia.

Actual quotes from

"I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not, but it's his property, it's his dog,"

"If that's what he wants to do, do it. I think people should mind their business."

"It can't be too bad of a crime."

"You want to hunt down Mike Vick over fighting some dogs?," Portis [told a Norfolk] television station. "I think people should mind their own business."

"I know a lot of back roads that have the dog fighting if you want to go see it[.]"

Chris Samuels, LT for now for the Redskins, had something intelligent to say: "You can't accuse this man of something and go ahead and throw the book at him right now," he told WAVY-TV. "He's got to be convicted first, and I don't think that's fair." Samuels then proceeded to hold Demarcus Ware, who wasn't even there.

Portis apparently had a change of heart (read: someone at Redskins Park talked to him):

"In the recent interview I gave concerning dog fighting, I want to make it clear I do not take part in dog fighting or condone dog fighting in any manner." I suppose that includes "it's property, it's his dog." Semantically, he said he does not "condone dog fighting" in the present tense. Perhaps he did right up until CerraSnydoGibbs called him.
