Feathers around the league will be ruffled when notorious dog fighter Michael Vick attends a bizarre brawl between eagles and panthers set to take place September 13th.

“I’m not sure what to think of this,” said longtime football fan Scott Morgan. “I mean, eagles are a symbol of our country. Is rooting for them patriotic, or is it like burning a flag?”

While Vick will no longer hosting the events, he did accept an invitation from the birds’ camp to attend, and will be cheering from the sideline.

Confirming the violent nature of the sport, one “coach” conceded that many of the victims receive medical attention afterwards and require months to recover.

“I know it all sounds a little inhumane,” said the coach. “But once you see the vikings maul the colts, you’ll be hooked.”
