<i>After a USC fan went on to Bruins Nation and pulled out an Eric Scott reference, a contributor to BN did some research, and discovered that a current USC assistant coach was arrested and charged with the mistreatment of dogs being trained on his property for dogfighting in 1996. In the same thread, Bruins Nation commenters later found that the same assistant, Todd McNair, was a part of the Reggie Bush free house scandal. They also found that McNair’s punishment was only a $16,000 fine and found a gruesome picture of one of the dogs.</i>

Anyone else think this will fuel a hunt for anyone even remotely involved with animal cruelty?

It would appear you're correct.

McNair didn't have enough Nike or Gatorade deals for anyone to care.

UNPOSSIBLE BROCK!

I've been informed several times by well read persons that game bread animals don't have human agression and are among the safest pets for a family to own.

Please educate yourself before making such derogatory, hateful and uninformed posts about specific canine breeds.

They just referred to it as the generic media term "pit bull". It was around '94 or so.

There are certainly exceptions to all rules but game raised pits are inherently not human aggressive. Couple years back I posted on a pit bull rescue I believe was in San Diego that was the biggest of it's kind in the country. A lady started it over a decade ago and her kids who are not yet adults helped her run it. All of them have yet to be bitten. I have placed a lot in families with kids all of them have never been bitten. There are always bad dogs of every breed and any dog can be taught to be human aggressive though.

If it makes you feel better BD....The new neighborhood I've moved to has a serious dog problem. I've tangled with a couple of neighbors about not having their dogs running wild, using my yard for a toilet.

One of those very dogs savagely attacked and ripped up the legs of a relatives grandmother a block from my house.

It was some long haired weiner dog....not a pit bull.

That owner is very, very lucky it wasn't my 2 year old.

You can teach an elephant not to be human aggressive, too.

Vick and McNair should partner up and open a legal kennel in Japan.

I remember Todd McNair. We called him "Miracle McNair" because he would always come in on third down plays and make unlikely catches for a first down. He was fun to watch.

Mcnair always made first downs, because he pretended one of his dogs was chasing him, and the football was made of pot roast.

I bet tim barnett would want in on some of this action, since he loved to beat his dogs.

I respect the fact that we are all products of our enviroment. There are were dogs all over the streets when I was a kid. The only bad one was a German Shepherd and it had to be put down. I rarely see one running free where I am at now.

I wouldn't blame you for shooting the dog BTW.

I remember after we re-signed McNair in the mid-90's, there were protesters outside the Blue Ridge Cutoff Gate at Arrowhead for the first few games.
