Glad I am not a fan of the Falcons. Not that Schuab would be the next coming of Brady, but the Falcons should have traded Vick instead. The guy plain old stinks as a QB, and now its becoming evident that he is the same as a person as well. But, he does sell alot of jerseys and brings in the fans. I guess that what means the most to Atlanta.
Well, I hope that he's just guilty by association. But if he knew about what was going on with those animals and participated in it, that's just a shame.
I have to admit, Vick hasn't made smart decisions lately.
none of these are big deals..
nothing came out of the water bottle incident
him missing a flight isnt a big deal..we dont know what happened
illegal activity involving dogs in his house that his NEPHEW lives in
u guys are just looking for a reason to pick on Vick..imo he hasnt done anything wrong that deserves all the crap u put at him
Who thinks Vick will ever be suspended by the NFL for character issues? Unfortunately, not me.
I have to disagree about the possibility of dogfighting. That would garner criminal charges for the owner of the property, as well as the people partaking in the illegal activity. And "nothing came out of the water bottle incident" because he is Mike Vick and the evidence was "lost." If the NFL is going to be hard on Chris Henry and Pacman without convictions, then they should do the same to this guy as well.
I doubt HIGHLY that he will be suspended. These things are trivial at best. They are not good but they are trivial. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt with the animal thing. He may own the property, but it doesn't mean that he KNOWS what's happening there.
Gee, I wonder why some athletes think that they never have to be held accountable for their behavior?
He owns the house, he's responsible for what happens there. Not only that, but if there were dog and ****fighting events being held at the house, I'm sure he had some part in it.
Vick's a sad character, and not a particularly good football player. The Falcons should have kept Matt Schaub and shopped Vick. Unfortunately, with his ridiculous contract, they probably wouldn't have found any takers.
Dog fighting is a felony in VA....These guys need to be more careful with "Posse" Selection.
You can rationalize all day long but for $134M the problem is he has done nothing but become the poster child for how total lack of intangibles will absolutely negate whatever level of raw talent a prospect projects when selecting a franchise QB. It's not even that Michael is all THAT bad off the field, it's that he hasn't proven to be nearly functionally good enough on the field to warrant any level of off field issues given the financial committment an NFL franchise made to him.
Arthur Blank isn't ready yet to admit he made a monumental mistake in not only in drafting this guy but in extending him early on to one of the largest contracts ever signed. He eventually will when all those fannies the initial signing attracted stop showing up on Sundays or renewing their season tickets. One more disappointing season under a HC specifically selected to salvage him as a functional QB should do it. If Schaub does even reasonably well in his new gig as a starter it will only exacerbate the situation.
Could have agreed with you until the illegal dog activity. Somebody living in a house you own, you know what they are doing there. Pot smoking, whatever, fans won't abandon him over that. Animal abuse? Sickening. He will get NO free pass for that.
animal abusers are the lowest form of scumbag
Worse than people abusers? I don't want to start an animal rights issue here but we just gotta be careful with what we say
A worse crime? No. A worse human being? Absolutely. It takes a special kind of jackass to abuse a creature that would adore you unconditionally, has no voice to call for help, and really has no defense against you.
Then again, I like animals more than the majority of the people I meet, so maybe I'm biased.
what he said
I'm no animal rights activist either
Oh My God, illegal fishing! What's next, an overdue library book? What a scoundrel.
I would be concerned of the dog fighting allegation, so I looked for the charges.
Instead i found this.
our own Taco Bill has found a report regarding the story on Pet-Abuse.com containing the following paragraph that is nothing short of a bombshell:
Sorry but when you own a house or anything else for that matter it is YOUR responsibility to know what is going on in YOUR house because YOU will be held accountable for what happens. You really think that Vick doesn't know what goes on in his own house? If that is true then Vick is dumber than I originally thought.
I still can't get over the fact that the guy issues a promotional press release for giving $10,000 to his alma mater to help the victims families at Va Tech.
Given his $10 million a year salary and probable $10 million a year in sponsorship revenue, that's exactly like you or I (average household income of $50k a year) giving $25 to the victims fund and expecting people to be impressed
($10k is exactly .0005% of Vick's $20 million total estimated earnings this year alone)
