Default Vick Indicted... Now until Trial...

I think Blank will release him as soon as he gets home today from Africa.

Being released is as good as suspended.. because no team will pick him up.. Mike is as "radioactive" as his younger brother..

Meanwhile Falcons owner Arthur Blank was at team headquarters in Flowery Branch, after returning from vacation in Africa. He was said to be in meetings with team personnel.

Falcons executives had made no additional public statements or appearances by mid-morning. On Tuesday evening the team issued an unsigned statement saying it was "disturbed" by the indictment.


An initial hearing date for Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is expected to be set Wednesday in federal court in Richmond, Va., where U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson will handle the dog-fighting case that has put Vick's career in jeopardy.

Shortly after opening at 8:30 a.m., the clerk's office for the court told the AJC that a summons in the case could be issued Wednesday afternoon.

UPDATED:

Meanwhile Falcons owner Arthur Blank told the AJC Wednesday that he had just arrived from a trip to Africa and was "greeted" with the news of Vick's indictment. He planned to spend the day gathering facts and talking with league and team officials.

Blank said the team could have a statement or an announcement later Wednesday. So far, its only comment was an unsigned statement Tuesday evening saying it was "disturbed" by the indictment.

They're not going to do anythign untill they actually have his conviction notice in their hands. Federal Prosecutors do not bring charges lightly for those of you holding out hope. They go into court with more than intentions in their hands.

Agreed, but what about Pac-Man then? I think he's a thug too, but I don't see any convictions. He's already been suspended, why not Vick?

This may tell the tale of how much $$$ the NFL sees in Vick...by how different they handle him vs. Pac-Man.

Thats exactly why I think he probably will get suspended before hand. The entire country is watching Goddell to see if he's consistent. If he does nothing, people would say that he caters to the super stars - just for the buck. If he suspends him, people will say, at least he's consistent and really does care about the image of the NFL.

I think that Vick will be given time off to prepare for his trial and sort out his life. Atleast that'll be the wording used by teh Falcons and teh NFL, in reality he will have been asked to go away till all of this is sorted out...one way or another.

Pac-Man had several incidents that he was involved in to his credit...

And Pac-Man served jail time...

Pac-Man was involved in incidents where he was at a club carrying guns, people getting shot, and biting people on the ankle...

These situations are not the same at all, because if Vick is found innocent then that means he didn't do anything other than be naive...

I doubt he'll be found innocent, but he and Pac-Mans situations aren't the same...

The thing we need to keep in mind here is that the NFL is not a court of law it is a business. The Falcons and NFL are not bound by evidence rules. They can suspend or release any player whose conduct (alleged or otherwise) discredits the team or the league.

This innocent until proven guilty mantra will fall by the way side if the public backlash is severe enough to affect profits or the NFL's image. You can whine about it all you want, but that is the cold hard truth.

I will be shocked if no action is taken by the league or the team before the trial. Personally, I could care less about what happens to the Falcons or Vick. I will not lose any sleep over what happens to him.

If I'm not mistaken, Pac-man was convicted of crimes prior to joining the NFL.
