ATLANTA -- Fans of Michael Vick wore his number proudly as they made their way to the Atlanta Falcons game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The game marked the first time Vick has returned to the Georgia Dome since serving a federal prison sentence for dogfighting.
"I love Michael Vick, and I support him no matter what," said Regina Williams.
But not everyone was there to support the former Falcons quarterback. A group of animal rights activists held up signs, protesting Vick's return.
"What we're asking is for the NFL to add dogfighting and cockfighting to their prohibited list in their code of conduct," said Candace Hunziker of In Defense of Animals.
Hunziker said they aren't anti-Vick, just anti-dogfighting. Vick's faithful fans thought their signs showed otherwise.
