No second season for ‘Michael Vick Project’

It looks like mission “Michael Vick Project" is complete. The BET docu-series, which chronicled Vick's attempts to rebuild his reputation, is done after only one season.

Vick told CSNPhilly.com last week that he "put a stop to" moving forward with the show. “They asked me to do it,” Vick added. “I don’t have that lifestyle.”

Yet while the network did confirm that the “Vick Project” won’t be making a comeback, a BET representative noted that “the show had been planned to just be one cycle.”

The 10-episode series, which delved into issues such as what led to Vick's prison stint for dog fighting charges, premiered on February 2 with about 1.6 million viewers and plenty of mixed reviews.

According to BET, the network still has a good relationship with Vick, who is entering another season as a backup quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles - but this time, without the cameras.

    What he did was wrong yes but a lot of this comment are racial and not about the animals. Very sad to know that this is how people still think to this day. SMH

    I am not a Vick fan, but i'm reading these comments and I'm appalled! You people are heartless! Wow! Ok, he did something horrible...he was convicted, sentenced, and reformed. What exactly is it that makes him a 'Thug'? Because he was born & raised in the projects? Because he allowed his talents as an athlete to secure an education and lucrative career? When you take a poor person from the streets and suddenly thrust him into fortune and fame with no guidance, he's bound to make poor decisions. Perhaps he tortured dogs after becoming insensitive following the years and years of torture his people experienced by the hands of 'White' people...who called us 'dogs' & monkeys & the like. Really...before you judge him, walk a mile in his shoes- live his life. Get a grip!

    Once again, all misguided comments. What you are saying has no bearing on the reality of our legal system. He did his time, and again, has the right as an American to pursue "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." Anyone has the right to dislike him....that is your right. BUT, he has the right to pursue his career, and I hope he succeeds.

    Vick is still a good QB. He DID some bad things in the past. He paid the price per the legal system. Granted people will still have their opinions, but how about we give him a second chance....let's wait and see. All humans are imperfect, we MAKE mistakes, some of them are really really stupid, but it's LIFE. Maybe some of us didn't kill dogs, but we have probably done some other crap that if the cops found out, we would be place in Jail with the likes of Vick. Let's give him another chance. Hell, we give Bush another chance...welll that's a bad example, because that didn't work out too well...but let's wait and see. The Feds are tracking his every move, if he screws up again, he will be put away for a long time.

    So just because he has paid for4 his crimes does not mean he has really changed..He projects what he needs to for acceptance by others, but what about the torturing and murder of animals he was involved in.... he is a cruel human being, that truth is hidden deep inside him and will surface again. Vick will always be unconcerned for animals and someone you should never trust!. His only regret is that he was caught !!!!!!!

    I find many of the comments here interesting and misguided. First of all, Michael Vick did commit a horrible crime, but he was tried in a court of law, found guilty, and served his time. Second of all, his crime, as bad as it was, was against animals, not humans. Those of you who liken him to a pedophile or a murderer have no concept of reality or our laws. You cannot compare someone who ran a dog-fighting ring to a pedophile or a murderer (and I am a huge dog lover). Michael Vick deserved the punishment he received, and he deserved to lose all of his fans. Now he has the right, as an American, to pursue his career and earn a living. I think he is a tremendous athlete and I am pulling for his success. Go Vick!

    geez, it is a really scary world when people are so passionate about dogs and Michael Vicks. I wonder if these people have lives or just sit around watching the news and hating people for mistakes. I want to know, is there any mistake so detrimental that a person can not be forgiven. My God, I hope none of these people have children. I can only imagine the hatred that is being breeded in them. Get a life – Your crime of hatred towards Michael Vick is worst than what Michael Vick did to the dogs, at least the dogs are dead, but you people are alive – and still dead! give it a rest. Clean yourself up and start loving more than hating, you will have meaningful quality of life.

    I read and saw on the media I can't remember just how long ago-but this did happen, there was a white man who tortured a lot of cats & dogs but he was not mention afterwards, this is why people have to listen and learn and stop haten-now he was wrong and Michael Vick paid and servered his time-let it go folks,and he has say he was sorry-but did anyone hear the white man say anything no because it was not broadcast only for a few minutes there was an article on this from CNN but never heard anything else about it-so lets not throw mud for we all have done something wrong about animals-so don't judge others for you will be judged.

    There are some rude and dumb comments on m vick-the man has done his time did anyone talk about the white boy who tortured how many animals now that was not mention but everyone here can judge Michael Vick for 1 mistake-how many of you all have done 1 dumb thing so lets not throw stones-because every last one on this page is a hypocrit and liers,so don't say you haven't- just keep on haten-because he is black-and the one who has done worst is white but was not mention yes it was on the news, and no one had or has anything to say about him-so all of ya"ll are here just need to shut up-and stop judgeing the man,he's done wrong and has paid for it -so what else do you want him to do?the man is not worthless only to themoi,this man went to college and a nfl player-so whatelse do u want the man to do-stop haten it's over let it go,fine something else on someone else to hate on,them dangerous dog should have been destroyed by the dog pound or something-you see his cousin got a lighter sentence-he paid the price and moving on you are talking about him like them republicans about PRESIDENT OBAMA,- what do u have to say about that? James apparently you have not looked in the mirror you may have a dangerous dog and if it bites or moul someone then what are u going to do you are a extra WSPOS. People are always downing one another because of a mistake, howmany have you made in life thats why this world is in the shape its in because of haters like some of these comments and commenters-so just get over it.

    Bunch of stone throwers in this thread. The man did the crime (I love animals, and thought what he did was disgusting, but I know others don't feel the same about animals) and he did the time. He paid for his crimes in the eyes of our courts, our society. If you don't think the penalty was stiff enough, get it changed. That will require going after someone other than MVick. There are some pretty harsh crimes going on out there RIGHT now. Go after those people. Let the man play ball and get on with his life.

    letsbereal, EEGM and all the others who say "move one, get over it, let it go, we all make mistakes"....yes, we all make mistakes but physically holding on to a dog and slamming it into the ground over and over and over again until it is dead is not just a "normal mistake". He drowned dogs by holding them underwater, electricuted dogs, watched as "bait dogs" with their mouths wired shut were ripped open by his fighters, he watched others do these same horribly cruel things and felt no remorse. They did not have to cruelly beat, torture and make all the deaths slow and agonizing. They could have chosen to end the poor animals life quickly and without more pain, but NO....He and his Toads chose to torture and give the animal over the death slowly. Why? WHY!!! Because he is sick!

    And don't think for just one minute the cruelty stops there....a link between animal abuse and other acts of violence against people has been proven. The dogs are just the beginning for many of them...just the beginning.

    Even though his PR rep coached him on what to say about how sorry he was and that dog fights are a horrible thing....we all know it is B.S. Even the young boys who idolize him know he is full of it and still think dog fights are a way to prove you manhood.

    He may have "done his time" according to our laws, but he did not get what he deserves in terms of true punishment...

Pretty sure that you aren't going to get your crappy job back. So why in the world should he get a job that pays 100 times more than what you are making. People are so blinded by celebrity it is sickning, you are actually advocating that a criminal should be paid better and treated better than you are. Good job idiots.

    shame on the NFL for even taking this convict back. He did not spend enought time in jail. after YEARS of abusing animals I hope he rots in hell for eternity, after losing his job, all his money and his family. The NFL allowing him to play puts their stamp of approval on his dog fighting activities.

    Yea the kid made a mistake but we all have made mistakes. He did his time, which is saying something in this era of high profile celebrities getting out of pretty much any and everything. It is sad that we live in a society that would rather criticize and condemn people than to help them. What Michael needs is a mentor not another critic. Let him prove that his heart has changed. His actions will speak louder than any words; whether it be his our ours.

    if people sit here and judge people then they are judging themself. Someone posted about peopele killing chickens is the same as killing dogs their is no difference. People want to jump on him because of dogs then jump on other people for killing sharks, whales, birds, ducks, and etc. Some people just need to get a life and move on because you have done something and never got caught like hurting animal.

      Give me a break! Never got caught? No, I never drowned dogs or other animals. I never forced cats to kill each other. I never slammed an animal's head against the pavement to kill it because it wasn't mean enough. Never got caught? Are you the same kind of monster as Vick or something? This isn't about getting caught – it's about what kind of person would do that in the first place.

    Michael Vick is a thug. His brother is a thug. His family members are thugs. Does anyone remember when he was a starter for the Falcons? His family members sat in the stands behind the Falcons quarterback's wife and cheered fort he QB to be injured so that POS Mike could play. The QB's wife finally had to stand up and tell them to shut up. This guy has always been a waste of DNA and the gene pool the comes from need a serious dose of chlorine.

      I understand your position, but if it were chickens rather than dogs would you have a problem with it?

      I think any activity of this sort where animals get hurt is ultimately a horribly wrong decision. However, I also believe people are reacting the way they are because it's dogs... man's best friend.

      Seriously? I realize that he did some bad stuff to some dogs, but this is a bit over the top wouldn't you think? NObody was thid fired up when a football player ran over and killed a PERSON and and that guy didn't even get as long in prison as Vick did. They were dogs people, D-O-G-S. He screwed up, did some time in prison, and is now trying to move on. I think it would be a really good idea if you folks did too.

      Err...not a dog person I take it? A chicken compared to a dog? A chicken is a mindless farm animal. A dog is mankind's most loyal companion that would freaking die for his master, and scientists are always learning new levels of intelligence in them that we didn't know existed. And yeah, Michael Vick should die in a car crash, or at least have his junk bitten off by a Rottweiler.

      It doesn't matter what you think of him nor does he need your validation. If he truly feels he can change himself, good for him. You don't have to believe him, just like we don't need to believe you when you make a huge mistake and ask for forgiveness... you don't need us. You just got to do what you need to do.

      When people make decent sized mistakes, I'm sure it haunts them... no one is an exception unless the person is in denial. I'm sure he's never going to get over the pain he has caused dogs.

      Not just a dog killer... a torturer of defenseless animals. If he had just killed them it would have been better. Instead he systematically abused them – or allowed them to be abused – until they were killed.

Because I have firsthand knowledge of this sad tale. Do you even know how many dogs were found on the property; dead or otherwise?
      He made no amends. He was forced to apologize and has been trying his damndest to resurrect his career ever since.
      Make no mistake about it. He was in it for the bloodsport and money and that does not leave one's system just because they get caught.

      All these people passing judgment are the same people that probably go to church where you’re taught forgiveness and to not cast judgment on one another. Interesting hypocrisy. Either way – I could care less about Vick and his show/career. The man committed a crime and was punished in the court of law as well as by the NFL and many fans. If he’s trying to turn his life around, who are we to put our foot on his neck and wish him failure?! I wish him luck and hope that he’s able to do something positive with his life…
