If you feel as strongly about the Michael Vick Dogfighting Indictment, please take a moment to visit this page and submit your thoughts to the NFL. The loud clear message needs to be sent that even being indicted on something like this is cause for big punishment. Let's see the NFL prove how ethical they are . . .

:lol: For those looking to vent their anger toward Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and his alleged involvement in a years-long dogfighting operation, a Florida company has created an opportunity: the Michael Vick Dog Chew Toy.

However, the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday that Red Room Entertainment of Jacksonville, Fla., might have problems concerning the toy's legality and the company's intentions for making it.

The company, which is selling the toy on its web site, said it will donate some of the proceeds to the Humane Society.

The Tribune said Red Room might be running afoul of NFL trademark rights, because Vick is depicted in his Falcons uniform.

The Tribune cited one seller on eBay who has posted more than a dozen with the notation "Get it now before the NFL shuts production down!" (Click here for to see ebay search results for toy on MSN Shopping.)

The Tribune also said that a Jacksonville Humane Society spokesperson told local media that the agency had not heard of Red Room's plans to donate money from sales of the toy.

"If purchasers of this toy believe they are donating to a Jacksonville Humane Society program advocating against dogfighting, that is clearly not the case and would be misleading," Chere Garrard told The Jacksonville Times-Union.

The company, selling the toy for $10.99, promises that the toy is "so strong and flexible, it will challenge every breed -- especially the pit bull."
