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've read or should I say tried to read the code of conduct . It seems to me that lifetime suspension is an option but not mandatory. Just remember that Roger Goodell is appointed commisioner by the NFL owners. The NFL owners are about making money. Michael Vick brings in money because people want to see him play. Ray Lewis plead guilty to the obstruction of justice in a double homicide case and he's still playing, Jamal Lewis went to prison for drug sales etc., etc., etc. I still feel that short of Vick getting a long term prison sentence he'll be back on the field within two years. As far as the poster that said he would fit right in, in Cincinnati. Your probably right except there not going to give up Carson Palmer even though he's not a thug!

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.
so right on...he's only sorry he got caught - what will he be in hot water for next? what a scumbag!

i mean the guy drowned dogs by holding their heads in 5 gallon buckets of water. WORTHLESS PIECE OF GARBAGE. i seriously doubt we'll ever see him in the NFL again. the new commissioner is a tough guy.

good luck in the CFL in 2 or 3 years bud.
Who wouldnt? This man is the most exciting player in the league and he is lucky for that. He wont make the huge bucks but he will be ok. The mans natural talent is rare and a lot of people will take that chance. All he needs is one great Pro Bowl season and all of this will be forgotten. Ray Lewis was supposedly mixed up in a situation that resulted in someones murder and nothing happend to him. He continued to have a great career and no one ever talks about it. Jamal Lewis was in a bunch of crap and nothing ever happend to him. The TO circus is still on the road. Granted that isnt a criminal proceeding. Barry Bonds is a jack ass and the fans of SF love him.
The sports world is a what have you done for me lately business. So in that respect he will be ok. The team that takes that chance and believe me someone will is going to get a good QB a year or so from now. If he produces and takes someone to the SB the same hypocrits that are bashing him right now will be singing his praises in a few years. Its the nature of the sports fan. We are all fair weather friends.

....Well whether you like it or not, the media and half the country will call this a race issue because of the fact that a famous, black man is involved in this. This ALWAYS happens, and if you don't believe me, look at the people who supported/hated Barry Bonds this year....
There were people who said that the O.J. case was a race issue because a famous, black man was involved, who just so happened to be accused of killing two white people. And Kobe, another famous, black man-accused of raping a white woman-had his case viewed as a race issue, not as much as Vick or O.J.. Even that thing with T.O. and the Desparate Housewife skit on Monday Night Football was viewed as a race issue; that it was made to be an even bigger deal because he was a famous, black man.

Sorry, folks. This is America, and America will ALWAYS have race issues... even if it's not ment to be one.
