Default Michael Vick??????

Not sure if this has been discussed here but I was catching ESPN this am and all the uproar is over Vick and his indictment??

Not I am not a big Vick fan, never think an NFL team can win with that type of QB, and I realize he has had some run-in's with the law but I really do not see what the big deal is. Sure dog fighting is not my cup of tea and I think in very poor taste but I would think our Federal Prosecutors have more to worry about than dog fighting and it looks like the NFL is
trying to suspend him before he is convicted and on top of this if you watch the ESPN report the media is already dropping the "race card" which really pisses me off.

What do you think will be the outcome or should happen???

A long term in prison for Vick and the rest of the criminals involved in that would be appropriate. You should read the details of what has been going on with that mess and not just what Sportcenter has to say. There was a lot of serious animal cruelty going on, alledgedly. If that is proven to be true, then I hope they get prosecuted to fullest extent of the law and do not get off light because they are "celebrities" in the National Felons League.

I would say having bred and trained animals killing each other is a big deal. How would you like if one of them got loose in your neighborhood? If convicted He should get the max because he is a so-called role model. But celebs and pro atheletes don't do any time. He probably will get a slap on the wrist, if anything.

As for the race card, well it was just a matter of time before that came up.

Read down a few threads "How to get rid of Pit bulls" ......what he was doing was a big deal and he needs to be kicked outta the NFL. Guy is a JOKE, he had a criminal empire surrounded by dog fighting. He also sells tons of drugs, maybe not outta his hands directly but he is a "investor" Don't ask me how I know but his days are numbered trust me. If the dog fights don't bring him down the drugs will.

I have heard those rumors also and was wondering if this is the only thing they can link him to and that is why they are going after it so hard and if this is true I can understand but as much as I like dogs I still do not see where this is worth the time of federal prosecutors, IMHO

It never ceases to amaze me at how many of these millionaire atheletes can get themselves into so many stupid situations which cost them their fame and fortune.

are you kidding me!! it's not the dog fight that is so bad, it's what they do to the dogs after the fight. they kill them in the worst ways, and like stated above "he is a role model" the last thing we need is young kids thinking this behavior is ok. like i said his days are numbered, the federal government has been watching him for a very long time. this is just the tip of the iceberg with this idiot.

The Falcons and NFL need to cut their losses and get rid of him. He's damaged goods....even if he is not convicted his image is permanently tarnished. Not that there aren't other gangsta thugs in professional sports to carry on in his stead...

Kind of like one of my clients that is a commercial GC said, "no matter how much some of my guys make on Friday they come in broke on Monday"

Another funny story that is a little off track, I was watching my favorite baseball team, A Braves, a few years ago and they were talking about a long 15 game road trip coming up and how the logistics were all worked out. They even discussed the union scale for meals for team members while they were on the road and it seems like it was something like $200 per day and one of the guys that was in charge said that they gave the players 1/2 of their meal money when they left ATL and the other 1/2 when they were half way through the road trip. Now you would think guys making on average of $2-3 million a year would be able to handle their meal money for the whole trip but I guess not.

This just backs up what you said Freebird.

"he is a role model" the last thing we need is young kids thinking this behavior is ok .

The sad part is that bad behavior sells. His jerseys and his other crap will probably become more desireable.

Yea I agree but from I heard on Rome this week the players union has a lot to say on this matter and having never worked for a union I have no idea how that works

And if they do cut him I know the perfect place for him to be, RAIDERS

Guys this stuff is big in the NFL. Being a rural county it go's on here more than the avg person on the street might think. I have personally seen MANY NFL players come to this county to buy these fighting dog. I'm not Kidding!!!!! The local breeders are laying low and sweating bullets right now. It's the talk of the town due to some big NFL names that have come here to buy dog while flashing there money to impress the locals.
You have not heard the last of this. More names to drop before this is over.
Personally I hate this crap. They should do some hard time and pay up big time.
Then come to my town and take these breeders down with them.

Vick has always been an a-hole, big shot with the big ego, even in high school. His brother is ten times worse.

Growing up not far from Newport News, Vick gets investigated for this that was all you heard.

This time he's facing long term sentence. Good, it's karma coming around.

VT never should have recruited him.

being a dog lover and owner of three, I would hope we could all agree here no matter if we are right or left wing, that men that electrocute and hang dogs should be put away for a long time...agreed?

I'm sure the NFL. like many public and private businesses have rules concerning an employee's conduct away from their employment. If so, I don't have a problem with them sanctioning him before a criminal trial, should one occur.
