I am bringing this up as I am curious to know what you think. On Sunday, Michael Vick was named Sportsman of the Year at the BET Awards on Sunday in Los Angeles. The Award is sponsored by Subway restaurants.
Yesterday, the controversy blew up on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Most vowing to boycott Subway restaurants. From what I can gather, the recipient isn't selected by Subway, but by the BET network. Boycotting the restaurants only hurts the innocent franchise owners and employees.
I personally dislike anything to do with Michael Vick. If it were up to me, I wouldn't have let him back in the NFL.
So, I wondering, what do you think about the controversy? What should Subway do? Do you think Subway should issue a statement? The sooner, the better? Or wait and see if it all blows over?
And if you normally eat at Subway, do you plan to change that based on this award?
I am personally waiting to see how Subway handles this fiasco. If they say nothing, I take that to mean that they endorse this award for Athlete of the Year. And I like Subway.
Or I did.
