Vick wins BET award

http://dogblog.dogster.com/2011/06/28/michael-vick-wins-subway-sportsman-of-the-year-at-bet-awards/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaig n=Feed%3A+DogsterForTheLoveOfDogBlog+%28Dogster+Fo r+The+Love+of+Dog+Blog%29

Among the awards given at the BET Awards on Sunday night was one for Subway Sportsman of the Year. The five finalists were Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose, and Michael Vick.

And with nearly 8 million viewers watching, the award went to Vick.

In defense of Subway, they didn't know he was going to win the award. But there were 5 nominees and he was one of them. Should have been enough to make them look for a cause more worthy.

Ann, my area of expertise is in the study of sports and sport business. Subway wanted someone like Vick in the running because more people saw their ads during the voting. It is true that they did not know he was going to win. But, the millions of sports fans are consumers. And they were voting for an athlete, not the man. It is unfortunate.
