I agree. I love sports and I'm willing to look past certain things but... not Vick. I like the euphoria watching a sport gives me but he ruins it for me. So, I'll avoid his image at all cost...

Vick will never paly again in the NFL. Yesterdays reports say that his lawyers contacted prosecutors and asked for a plea deal. If he gets a plea bargain it does in fact admit his guilt. At which point Vick is no longer marketable for sponsors or the NFL. Legal analysts estimate the plea deal to lessen his time to one year instead of the 6 years that were predicted. The NFL will have no option, if they follow the new cunduct codes for players, but to ban Vick for life. Stick a fork in his *ss, he is done!

I mean, if they no longer have a use for the dogs, just shoot the poor things. Only a true sicko tortures them to death.

What a piece of work...
Just shoot the poor things ??? How in the hell is that any better than what Vick himself is accused of ? I certainly hope that was a slip of the tongue, anything less would be inhumane.

Vick's status as a mainstream professional athlete is on the same level as Shoeless Joe Jackson, ca. 1920 and onward.

He has a chance to play again if the XFL is ever revived.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Bengals tried to sign him while he's in his jail cell. I'm mean, what's one more criminal player to the Cincinati Bengals.

Well, the good thing is that even the good ole' Bengals probably won't want this guy afterwards. He's a menace to society, and jail time is what he deserves. Even after 5 years, I wouldn't consider this mook deserving of NFL play. Besides, he probably will be in terrible football shape afterwards. I'm pretty sure even big shots like Michael Vick don't get their own personal trainers in jail.

Per the news just announced."Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter."

He has pled guilty. I wonder what kind of sentence he will get. The only way to hit these guys is in their pocketbooks.

Yeah right, apologize... you can't apologize to the dead, tortured dogs. He is not sorry, only sorry he got caught.

Hope he does time - what a sick human being.
Although I hope that he'll get 5 years in jail, like some sources said he would, he probably won't.

HE SHOULD GO TO PRISON!!!WHAT A SICK PERSON!!!
