AirTran Parts Ways With Falcons' Michael Vick

Sat Jun 02, 2007 5:58 am

ESPN.com Article - AirTran parts ways with Vick after off-field incidents

I figured they would have canceled the promotions contract after the "water bottle incident". Better late than never, I guess.

Yeah, the day after the "water bottle incident", the last billboard in ATL featuring him was changed. In fact, I don't believe there was any media involving Vick after that.

I don't think it helped very much when he was supposed to testify on Capitol Hill and his manager blamed AirTran that he didn't make his flight.  Wink I just can't remember if that was before or after the water bottle incident.

It was after. Happened about a month or so ago.

I guess this means that Warrick Dunn will be the main Falcons' player they use as a spokesman during the NFL season.

Hearing one of those Michael Vick AirTran ads one morning listening to the traffic report made me glad I have satellite radio (I had turned to one of the AM stations because the local traffic reports on Sirius at times aren't up to the minute). I thought it was Mushmouth for a second. I understood Ilya Kovalchuk's AirTran ads better than I did Vick's.

Um, what makes you think any airline- or any business for that matter- would want to dial up Mike Vick for endorsements anytime soon?

I guess if they make a sequel to "Soul Plane" he can do the ads for it.......
