    Dog fighting is completely despicable. If Vick is found to be related to this, he should be kicked out with the same switfness of pacman.

    60 dogs, all or most of them scarred, injured, or malnourished...disgusting

    How much you want to bet that Arthur Blank and the Falcons will use this to void the balance due of Vick's humongous contract under the NFL's new Code of Conduct?

    Did anyone notice that D. Carr has apparently been released from the Panthers already, and is a cop on this case now? :user:

    The whole team is running a dog fighting ring, lol. Guess it is kind of sad, actually.

    On top of that they also found whips, treadmills, and injectable drugs that were used on the dogs. They need to throw the book at this guy and not look back.

    There is no way he can credibly deny knowing about 60 dogs at his property.

    After reading the article, I had forgotten how many times Vick has been in the bad press lately; the Ron Mexico incident, flipping off the fans, the secret compartment bottle, and now dog fighting. I wonder when Goodell will step in and suspend him like he did with Pacman and C. Henry.

    I think that this is all leading up to justification for the nullification of Vick's 90 million dollar contract.

    Atlanta wants to get rid of him so bad, but can't with that contract.

    And yet they traded away Schaub. I'm starting to wonder if we got a better deal then intially thought, just due to Vick's behaviour.

    Looks like the feds may be interested even if the locals are not:

    Good, because it looked like it was all going to be swept under the rug, and Roger Goodell hasn't said one word about it specifically or Vick in general. I think both the Falcons and the league need to step up to the plate here. If anyone actually thinks Vick didn't know what was going on there, I have some ocean front property in Arizona I want to sell you. In the end, he will probably get the superstar treatment - IE, forced to apoligize, some kind of fine, and a slap on the wrist, and it will all go away. If this was the backup punter, he would be thrown in prison for this. Won't happen with Vick, but it should. As a dog and animal lover, I know what I would like to do. :bat:

    Did you build $100k of improvements you couldn't afford on the property?

    I don't know. IF he paid for the kennels to be built and the rest, that would seem to lead to him fairly quickly.

    Is this still being swept under the carpet? Seems to have fallen under the radar.

    We'll see if there is real superstar scamming if any indictments come down. The feds aren't likely to give a whole lot of local hero deference. There is a federal anti-dog fighting law but it may need more proof such as interstate activity or gambling--both of which were undoubtedly going on here.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you view it), "having knowledge" is just so hard to prove... That's what I think will determine whether or not this goes away.... The prosecutors will have the burden of proof.
