Clinton Portis came under fire for making light of dog fighting and the fact it's a crime.

Say something that gets sports fans upset and the fallout can be brutal. Say something that raises the ire of the animal rights lobby? That's a whole different league.

Clinton Portis has learned that lesson the hard way. The Washington Redskins running back spoke Tuesday of the searing criticism he has received since he made light of the dog fighting investigation involving Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.

"A couple of weeks ago, when I made those comments, I didn't understand the seriousness behind it," Portis said. "I didn't know it would affect that many people, didn't think what I said was that offensive. But after doing research and seeing how serious people take this, I shouldn't have made the comments."

Sure, now he "shouldn't have made the comments". Dumb

He said what he felt. I am sorry but he had to know how serious this matter is. i am glad denver is rid of him although i do miss the production. Seems to me is his character is that he is a funny guy and since he is rich he can step on a few toes. just a lack of maturarity on his part.
