Petition Seeks To Ban Michael Vick From NY Jets Training Camp

Petition Seeks To Ban Michael Vick From NY Jets Training Camp
Over 1,500 signatures have already been placed on a petition to ban Jets quarterback Michael Vick from SUNY Cortland's campus. The campus was set to hold the Jets training camp there this summer, but hopefully with the petition in force, that might not happen.

The NY Daily News reports, "The petition, hosted on the website Change.org, is addressed to Erik J. Bitterbaum, the school's president and reads:

"If we welcome Vick onto our campus, we are complicit in his crimes. We are sending the message that, for money and publicity, we will turn a blind eye to the horrors of dogfighting."

The Jets have held training camp at SUNY Cortland every season since 2009 (except for the lockout year in 2011).

If you would like to sign and share the petition, you can find it here.
