NFL Quarterback Michael Vick was scheduled to do a book signing tour at Barnes & Noble stores in Atlanta, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but that tour has been cancelled. According to ESPN, the tour has been cancelled due to threats towards Vick.

If you recall, Vick served 18 months in a federal prison for his involvement in a dog fighting ring, and since serving his time he has returned to the NFL and even wrote titled “Finally Free.” ESPN reports, that a person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, told The Associated Press the signings were scrapped because of threats against Vick and store employees.

Byron Williamson, the president of Worthy Publishing, said that the threats were serious enough to cancel the tour and that police have been notified of the threats. Since being released, Vick has worked with The Humane Society of the United States to speak out against animal cruelty.

Do you think Vick will ever be able to recover from his involvement in this dog fighting ring? Also, do you think this a bit unfair for the NFL quarterback who seems to have gone the extra mile to promote safety for dogs?
