It looks like the stakes just got higher for the NFL and Goodell. They have been playing hardball with players all offseason, but will they show Vick leniency in order to protect their interests? However you spell it, Vick and his cousin are in big trouble and if they have provided false information to the police, then the plot only thickens.

Bottom line is that anyone sick enough to watch much less sponsor and champion a dog fight is a sick human being. If they prove that he participated in dog fighting, he needs to do some jail time and some serious community service. Oh, and he should be suspended for 10-16 games.

If the NFL softpedals this whole scandal and doesn't take action they will be in trouble with the Humane Society, PETA, and Pac Man's appeal lawyers.

Doesn't surprise me in the least. What will be interesting is if there is a crackdown on this bloodsport similar to the crackdown on Steroids. From what articles have said, dog fighting is a big unspoken to-do among NFL players (unless of course you are a moron like Clinton Portis).

Default Re: Source: Vick 'one of the heavyweights' in dogfighting

Hmm, based on this informant's interview, Michael Vick had access to huge money to bet and raised/fought pit bulls DURING his VIRGINIA TECH career. His dog fought Vick's in 2000 allegedly and Vick was betting huge money. If he was into dog fighting BEFORE he became a multi-millionaire, imagine how much he is probably into it now.

The excuse that it's his cousin house is an insult to an investigator's intelligence and its all a question of whether the DA wants to get involved in this media circus and what the NFL is going to do.

If the Falcons were smart, they would just cut the guy and rid themselves of his ridiculous contract. They could probably get some of the money back and would only have the remaining portion of his signing bonus as 'dead money'. They could go on the cheap at QB and see who emerges out of Harrnington, Shockley, and Redman. Vick is injury-prone, a distraction, an embarassment, and is an average QB with elite feet. For some reason, I don't think this is going to end well for Vick.

This is a serious black eye to Virginia Tech's athletic program and if some of this info pans out, the NCAA may need to do some investigations over there.

With all this BAD news coming out about Mike Vick, I predict that as of July 1, 2007, Mike Vick will be residing in:

A. Argentina

B. Costa Rica

C. Uruguay

D. Federal Detention Center for Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Georgia.

Yeah, I saw that report, too. I had left it on ESPN, and when I walked into the room it was showing video of dog's fighting. Unfortunately, my 5 yo son was with me, but he just thinks they were playing. Sad stuff, and I just don't get the appeal of watching animals kill themselves as entertainment.

If Vick gets suspended you know Joey Harrington isn't going to cut the mustard...

I doubt that Carolina would trade him to a Division Rival, but the Falcons might be able to buy a used Carr for the right price..

My friend in Alief has three pitbull. I've known all of them since they were a puppy. They are good dogs. I can't believe people would fight those dogs. Vick deserves to be suspended this year.

Isn't "Dog" currently in jail? Thought I heard that on the news a couple of months ago.
