“First I want to apologize for all the things that I’ve done and that I have allowed to happen,” Vick said at a news conference following his appearance in U.S. District Court.In his written plea, Vick admitted helping kill six to eight pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on the fights. He said he did not personally place any bets or share in any winnings. The NFL suspended him indefinitely and without pay Friday after his plea agreement was filed. Merely associating with gamblers can trigger a lifetime ban under the league’s personal conduct policy.
“I made a mistake in using bad judgment and making bad decisions,” he said. “Dogfighting is a terrible thing.”
Vick said he wasn't honest in his previous statements, saying he was "ashamed."
"I want to apologize to all the young kids out there for my immature acts," Vick said. "What I did was very immature. ... I need to grow up."
He concluded by saying, “I offer my deepest apologies to everyone. And I will redeem myself. I have to.” [SOURCE]
