We treat dogs better than women

GREAT article and bravo to Mike Bianchi for this fabulous sports commentary!

Ignoring domestic abuse is the shame of the sports world -- "If only Michael Vick had been arrested for abusing women instead of dogs.

He'd still be on the football field today.

He'd still have the love and adoration of his fans.

And, yes, he'd still have his Nike deal.

Such is the shame of professional sports.

Dogs are treated with more respect than women.

'It makes me angry that the sports world gets outraged when an athlete tortures a dog, but nobody says a word when an athlete abuses his wife or girlfriend,' says Carol Wick, who operates Harbor House, a local shelter for battered women and children. 'Not that we shouldn't be outraged by animal abuse, but shouldn't we be just as outraged with spousal abuse?'

Actually, shouldn't we be more outraged?"
