Michael Vick Apologizes to Refs for Complaining About Hits

A day after Vick made his frustrations about late hits known after Sunday's game, he backtracks on his comments and vows not to complain about getting hit again.

"The refs have to do their jobs, and they have tons of things to look over," Vick said Monday. "I was kind of out of character and being too candid in that aspect. Ultimately, I have respect for the referees and their decision to make calls. You won't hear me complaining about it no more."

Vick's comments have been widely talked about in the media and it's still questionable whether or not other quarterbacks get more calls than he does. Honestly, I didn't have a problem with what he said. He was rightfully emotional after a tough loss and didn't say anything too harsh. Even though I think he didn't say anything wrong, it's still commendable that he retracted the statement and showed respect. He let the league know his thoughts and will be moving forward.
