    If it was not sick enough to have dog fights, but when they lost he tortured them until they died; he also did it in front of other people so they could see what a thug he was. I really beleive that he thinks it's no big deal, perhaps watching all his money dwindle to the point he won't have any hanger ons to tell him how great he is will do the trick.

    Stupid ball players, they are lucky enough to be paid incredible salaries and then they blow it away on a stupid move like that.

    What is next? Vick wrestling?

    His contract was for $130 Million, but over 10 years.

    If he's been suspended, he doesn't get paid. They want the signing bonus back; or a large portion there of.

    But that's peanuts to what he really lost. Nike was due to launch a "Michael Vick" shoe. Scratch that idea. I think Adidas had something with him, etc.

    The ENDORSEMENTS he lost, interview fees, personal appearances, etc probably cost him $500 MILLION PLUS.

    For somebody to toss away half a BILLION dollars to see two dogs tear each other up is beyond stupid.

    The only way they would get the $22 million back is if they have an all PETA jury!

    That money was for him to sign up with them! The $130 million was for him to play with them for 10 years.

    I would think that his contract has some sort of "escape" clause in favor of the club. If not, the Falcon's organization is stupid. JMHO.

    I believe most NFL clubs have the equivalent of a "morals clause" for lack of a better term. It's a catch-all clause, which protects the team from players doing exactly what Vick did.

    Best,

    He won't be going to Canada(or anywhere else) until he gets out of jail! With a Federal rap he WILL go to prison. Just how long will be up to a Feeral Judge to decide.

    Unlike MLB, NFL contracts are not guaranteed. If they cut him loose for any reason, its my understanding he doesn't get anymore $$$.

    Don't worry too much about Vick. He may have lost his Nike contract, but he's picked up a new shoe contract...Hush Puppies.

    Well we are staying on top of this.

    No more pay for Mr. Vick.

    The Falcons can reclaim the signing bonus.

    The bad thing is that he can keep any of his previous salary that he has squirreled away.

    roofer, you forget that he pleaded guilty to "FEDERAL" Felony conspiricy charges. With a federal wrap the individual with spend a MADATORY prison sentence and there will be no probabtion. The LENGHT will be decided by a FEDERAL Judge. The ONLY way he would avoid jail time for a FEDERAL wrap is if the sentece was "commuted" by the U.S.Attorney General or the President of the U.S. and I don't think THAT is going to happen in this case!

    Slide action; you are not entirely correct. There are plenty of defendants in the federal system that get sentenced to probation. Only certain crimes carry mandatory sentences, and I don't believe that dog fighting is one of them.

    What the federal system does have is sentencing guidlines that the judge is mandated to "Consider", not necessarily follow. What I understand about Vicks charges is that his sentencing guidlines call for 8-14 months in prison. Most judges will still sentence him in that time frame, but they are not required to. A supreme court decision known as "Booker", ruled that it was unconstitutional to require federal judges to sentence defendants to a guidline sentence, they only have to consider the guidlines when they pronounce their sentence. So, if Judge Hudson wishes to give him probation, he can, but I would think that it is highly unlikely. If Vick goes to prison (Which he most likely will), then he will have to serve 85% of the sentence, unless the sentence is for less than 12 months, he would then have to serve every day of the sentence. Most attorneys will convince the judge to give him 12 months and a day, so that the defendant then gets credit for good time and only does the 85%. After Vicks release, he will then have to be on Supervised Release for probably three or four years. That will require him to conform to a set of standards layed down by the court, if he violates these standards, he can be sent back to prison, again and again, until the supervision is terminated!

    All this conjecture is strictly that: guesswork.

    But the whole thing is so much in the public eye that I doubt if there will be any cakewalk for the arrogant "Athlete".

    And that is as it should be. when I was a kid fifty million years ago we revered the superstars. And when Joe dimaggio married Marilyn Monroe it was like the All American hero story.

    We bought our gloves and bats that had our favorite hero's signature and played better because of it.

    Seems like that all went away in the late 60's when personal responsibility underwent many changes.

    So much aberrant behavior is acceptable now, I suppose some of them think anything goes.

    We'll see.

    Well, according to his press conference today, he has found Jesus. I wonder who told him to play the "J" card? Jesse? Al perhaps?

    Man what a sleaze bag.
