Eagles: Vick's not stiffing media

The jokes began almost immediately after ESPN's First Take felt Michael Vick nixed their interview request before the Maxwell Club's media luncheon.

First Take had been "Oprahed," a play on Vick's decision to cancel an appearance for Oprah Winfrey.

Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko said neither he nor Vick had received a request from First Take.

"Michael did not cancel the interview," said Boyko, who accompanied Vick to the Maxwell Club festivities at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City. "It wasn't requested from Michael and it wasn't requested from me. Whatever Michael was asked to do, he did. He spoke to all of the media, and there was an autograph session."

Maxwell Club president Ron Jaworski apologized for the mess explaining in a statement that one of his people failed to arrange the interview.

And Vick, who told the media Friday he pulled out of the Winfrey interview because there were some issues he "didn't want to touch on," was left hanging.


Last week Vick drew the wrath of some media for not attending a charitable function the Eagles insist had been cancelled one week before it commenced.

"People are taking liberties with Michael Vick," Boyko said. "They're not getting confirmation from him or his P.R. staff."
