  • Michael Vick suspended by the NFL

    NEW YORK -- The NFL has suspended Michael Vick indefinitely.

    On Friday, Vick filed his plea agreement in federal court admitting to conspiracy in a dogfighting ring and agreeing that the enterprise included killing pit bulls and gambling. He denied making side bets on the fights, but admitted to bankrolling them.

    Friday afternoon, a letter to Vick from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said, in part:

    "Your admitted conduct was not only illegal, but also cruel and reprehensible. Your team, the NFL, and NFL fans have all been hurt by your actions."

              Ok any bets on how many posts it will be before someone says dogfighting shouldn't be illegal or that this is a race issue?

              On topic - harsh action but a necessary one. I hope it never has to be used again.

                So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                    Michael Vick's father said he asked his son to give up dogfighting, or to at least put property used in the venture in the names of others to avoid being implicated, according to a report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

                        good. Vick needs to be perma-banned.

                          This allows the Falcons to try and reclaim some of his bonus money. I heard about 3.75 Million, but that's just an estimate.

                            Can they do that for a suspension?

                              Well, you know, the Panamanian soccer team had a player called Garces who played while he was in jail. He reportedly killed a person with a gun, but the trial was never commited, and since he didn't have enough money to get out before the trial, he kept himself in jail. When it was practice time or game time, he'd go out under custody and play. He couldn't travel though. Afterwards a judge declared him innocent because of lack of evidence (the gun was never found, and some other things).

                              And ever since he supposedly shot that guy, he earned the nickname of ''el pistolero'' which means pretty much the gunman.
