Dogfighting is a Sport?

According to NBA guard Stephon Marbury it is. Speaking in defense of soon to be imprisoned Michael Vick, Marbury stated:

"I think it's tough. I think, you know, we don't say anything about people who shoot deer or shoot other animals. You know, from what I hear, dogfighting is a sport. It's just behind closed doors."
Training animals to fight each other to the death is not a sport.

The fact of the matter is that Vick broke the law, and now he has to do his time. It's true that there are plenty things worse in this world than dogfighting, but that's not the issue. Not only did Vick break the law, but he lied to the Falcons and the NFL. Michael Vick reminds me more and more of Marcus Vick every day.
