Shutdown Corner - NFL

The Atlanta Falcons were once home to maybe the least animal-friendly player in NFL history, and now they might be home to the most animal-friendly player in NFL history. Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and his wife October are appearing nude in an anti-fur ad for PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Nope. Definitely no fur there. Tony, a committed vegan, definitely believes in the cause.

"We should be protecting animals, not sacrificing their lives for the sake of fashion or luxury," says Tony Gonzalez(notes). "October and I have changed many of our habits in light of the inhumane treatment of animals that occurs not only in the fur industry but also on factory farms."

If you'd like to join Tony in his anti-fur campaign, you can yourself over to the PETA website and sign a pledge to be fur-free. I'm considering it, but I'm waiting for a smuttier series of photos. I think that might really awaken me to the cause.
