Vick.

Why?

The NFL and the Eagles told you to stay away from any of your old Dog fighting buddies. (Co-Defendant)

I vaguely recall hearing it was against his probation to even come into contact with some of the co-defendants from his case. I'm not positive about that part. But this was probation from a federal case. This could be jail time if they can directly prove he came into contact with this guy.
I guess you can take a boy out of the hood but can't take the hood out of the boy. Should've traded him while they could have, I bet the Raiders would've given up a high pick.

It's hard to give this guy the benefit of the doubt. And I'm a fan of his game. But if that story is true, he might as well be done in the league. If he was at the club having a birthday party, and the guy you arent supposed to see walks in, you gotta leave asap, call your lawyer, p.o., Andy Reid, and the commish, and clear your name, in my opinion.

Some people don't get it at all. The NFL and The Eagles gave him another shot to redeem himself. All they asked him to do is stay away from the other convicted Dog Killers. I angered alot of my friends supporting his come back to the NFL. I believe everybody deserves a 2nd chance.

I hope it was just a coincidence, but if it wasn't. Kick his azz off our team.

He's not supposed to live in a bubble, but because of his past actions, he's gotta be more careful and make better decisions. Nothin wrong with throwing a party. But when you are who you are, it's more likely to turn out bad when you're out at a club. Find another place to have fun.

I hope it's true he wasn't there when it happened. But EVERY TIME he's even in the area, it's gonna be a big deal. He doesn't get the benefit of the doubt. And I am a Vick supporter as well.

Okay, call me a homer (b/c I grew up in the same area that Vick did) but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and still support him.

I too hope nothing much becomes of this but only because I'm hoping Vicks inevitable crash and burn will be much more spectacular and cataclysmic to the dog torturer/killer than this incident. Karma is one big *** Rottie waiting to chomp down on your head Vick.

Given the trouble he has been in AND the fact that an NFL team took a chance on him, hell yes. He should stay clear away from the HOODLUMS and influences that got him into hot water in the first place. I even argued on another forum as to why he should be given another chance, but now, I'm having second thoughts.
