20. Dogfighting Ring
“Michael Vick’s teammates voted him as the comeback player of the year after he got out of prison for dogfighting. Sometimes sports are the worst,” @nittgrl73 tweeted about the infamous NFL star. One of the greatest rushing quarterbacks ever, it’s fair to say that Vick was a generation before his time. But he became embroiled in one of the most scandalous court cases in league history after news of his dogfighting ring broke.
The former Atlanta Falcons star served a jail sentence for his actions. But many fans still believed that he was a disgraceful human being. But one fan had an interesting reaction to the Pokemon Go craze that ignited a few years later. “Pokémon trainers engage in superpowered dogfighting as a career,” @CrymsonLight wrote. “They’re basically Michael Vick without consequences or athletic ability.”
