Like you haven’t already heard: Michael Vick pleads guilty

Michael Vick to plead guilty.

I don’t really have much to say besides, what a retard. Oh, that and thank goodness I’m not a Falcons fan or else I think my head would explode. Tom Brady may knock up his ex and occasionally wear Yankees’ hats but at least he’s not executing puppies.

    It’s hard to believe that Al Sharpton is already criticizing the justice system instead of the quarterback on this one.

  2. i watched this on the news today & it’s horrible. doesn’t he lose like everything now? even his contract money? that’s what i heard.

  3. Whenever someone goes down like this, I am glad that justice has been served, and pity the person who made such poor choices as to ruin their life.

    Vick caused a lot of suffering, and unfortunately for him, he’s really put himself behind the 8 ball if he ever wants to do anything with the rest of his life… : /

  4. Kosh, I have one thing to say, Al Sharpton is a shithead. If Brett Favre was financing a dolphin-fighting ring and all the authorities did was ask for an autograph, I’d be outraged. His argument that this is due to the white dominance is sort of ironic when you figure Vick & co enslaved hundreds of innocent dogs. I mean, when you really think about it, right?

    Jess, I think the fact that Vick gambled on the matches are what will ultimately screw him the most. Professional sports frown upon any kind of gambling.

    Chuck, I think it’s pretty telling of someone’s character when they have the most lucrative contract in the entire NFL, seemingly have everything anyone could ever want, yet still engage in something like this.

  5. Chuck – Vick did cause a lot of suffering. But not just to the dogs… I feel sorry for Falcons fans. Had you seen him throw a pass in recent years? He’s really nothing more than a running back with a strong arm that couldn’t hit a dummy from 3 feet away.

    I guess I’m going to have to go burn my Michael Vick jersey. *sigh*

  6. What does Sharpton blame Vick’s lousy performance on? White-people-designed-footballs?

  7. Wasn’t his contract worth something like 100 million? That’s a big balls up, the more you’ve got the more you have to lose.

  8. hi just stumbled upon your blog. It’s a cool song about the Heisman trophy. Would you like to hear the Heisman song?

  9. Bryan, you hit the nail on the freakin’ head. Best athlete in the NFL, sure – best QB, not even close.

    Mike, ha ha ha

    Paul, I think I read it was $130 million, and that’s not even counting all the Nike endorsements that are gone.

  10. Well now that he’s admitted (AFTER LYING) to the charges what should the penalty be? I’m thinking 20-35 years with no possibility of parole for at least 15. And no, I’m not joking.

  11. Not to self: Never piss you off.

  12. So much for Vick “clearing his good name”. I just hope he doesn’t come back to football. Even though he’s fun to watch, maybe ATL can actually get somewhere with a solid QB.

  13. I bet they’re wishing they didn’t make that trade with Houston now.

    I don’t see how he could come back. If he is pleading guilty to the charges that include the gambling aspect of the dogfighting then I don’t see how Roger Goodell could honestly allow him back, and if he did, I think Pacman Jones would have a nice little lawsuit in his pocket since he hasn’t actually been convicted or pled guilty to anything.

  14. You know, a backup QB on the Falcons just went down with an ACL tear in the practice game the other day.

    DJ Shockley is his name, and he played for my alma mater. Very disappointed to see him get hurt. He’s one of the best guys in the league, I’m sure. Just a class act through and through.

  15. I always HATE when guys get hurt during preseason. Well, I hate when they get injured anyway but my heart breaks when it’s over a meaningless contest like a preseason game. I don’t know how much depth the Falcons have at QB, but it can’t be much. Arthur Blank really screwed himself and his team. Thank GOD for Robert Kraft. I’d kiss him if I could. On the lips. 😀

  16. It’s not about being pissed off it is about the punishment fitting the crime. If this was a nerdy 18 year old white teenager doing those kind of things (electrocuting, strangling, drowning, bludgeoning, and worse) to dogs we’d all be up in arms about his potential to be a serial killer. Because it is a professional athlete we just give him a free pass and look the other way.

    Fact of the matter is that he tortured and maimed animals with absolutely no reason for doing so. No excuse can be made for his conduct. No amount of money or other financial restitution can undo those things. Like I said before if it were anyone but a professional athlete there wouldn’t be a discussion. The book would have been thrown at them.

    I believe a long sentence is appropriate because of the danger to the community he presents. His propensity to torture animals reminds me of John Wayne Gacy, Ed Gein, and Jeffery Dahmer.

  17. I agree. It’s sick. I saw one picture of a pit bull’s face ripped to shreds. I just don’t understand it at all. Financial restitution would be pointless because he has the money.

  18. It’s sickening that someone with so much can still be involved in something so low. Not that athletes are any better than the rest of us, but when they screw up big time ad in the limelight, there’s no going back.
    And Mr. Sharpton – “traditional urban gaming activities”? Get real.

  19. By the way, although it’s probably not far off from his true opinion, that “blog” by Al Sharpton is on a spoof site, so I’ll have to retract what I said about urban gaming activities. Who knows who really wrote that.

  20. Yeah, I noticed it was a spoof when I saw George W. had a blog. 😀

    I guess we can pretty much say Michael Vick’s career is over.

  21. I’ve been a Falcons fan since the early 70s. Believe me, it hasn’t been easy, but I’ve stuck with them. I winced when they took Michael Vick instead of Drew Brees, but after watching Michael play, I pretty much thought the guy was Superman. After a couple seasons I realized he was never going to take them to the promised land, and I settled in for another 7-8 years of Vick-led mediocrity.
    Atlanta, do the right thing and cut this thug loose. He is a disgrace to the NFL, and the sooner you do it, the sooner you can start to build a winner.
