Vick Indicted

Recommended Posts

Dukes, on NFL Network was saying that his concensus is that there are not many fans in Atlanta that think this is a big deal. (Vick's dog fighting) Dukes feels they will stand behind their big star and Vick is the most provocative player in the NFL. If this is the case, they deserve everything they get with Vick. How can you not be ticked-off that your so-called "star" put himself in the position Vick has done?

Dukes has always been a fan of Vick. That's practically how he got his job on NFL Network. Some Falcon fans are definetely not on that boat. Somehow I really don't like Dukes though. Too much of a show. They should bring back Lincoln Kennedy, unless he's still playing.

 

I like Jamie but don't think he speaks for Atlanta fans as a whole. Also Arthur Blank wants to maintain his image as a upstanding team so I doubt this flies with the team.

 

Any Falcons wants want to clarify?

Too lazy to make the alias, but DHall is one guy that has definetely stood by Vick.

 

fixed... :D

I like OJ. And I'm not black.

 

Hey Shiz... there is a long standing Huddlism of posting a reply of "good info here" as a way of agreeing with a particular quoted post (and usually it's made in a humorous light). I took Az's reply to simply be a twist on that custom... I don't think he was being as hard on you as you think he was being.

This is a war trench. Az doesn't really care anyway.

Now I like Waterman, but I'd agree some of his posts are somewhat senseless.

 

Water Turd is an epic idiot. And I imagine that he's currently hiding under the same rock that he hid under when Peyton was hoisting the Lombardi Trophy back in February.

 

I feel as if I have done absolutely nothing wrong in my "defense" of Michael Vick.

 

You're certainly free to look like a fool. :D

Anyone want to make bank that Vick doesn't show but just sends his lawyer instead?

Falcons TC reporting date is July 25.

 

Bronc, let me explain something to you. If this was an "indictment" from a local or state law source, then yes, some skeptisim. However, this is a "federal" indictment, and when the feds issue these, the case is 99.9% airtight before thay indict and individual. So, in essence, a "federal" indictment usually just means it's only a matter of "due process", but most likely it's airtight and a done deal.....also, the "feds" don't usually get into alot of "continues" when it come to a case.

Well said. But I still have the skeptism with some of the topics in the indictment.

 

Holy crap, I can't believe that you're still propping up this POS.

God bless you. And I forgive you.

Schools out, then?

 

Anyway, your position here as a kind of devil's advocate reminds me of Spain and the tripe he posts sometimes just to see who gets caught. I'm not saying you're in his piscatorial league but it does look like you're taking these positions as part of a fishing expedition since any normal person would have bowed out of this by now and let it take it's course.

Devil's advocate. Except the opposite. broncos "The Devil's Advocate" n05. I like it Ursa.

As he should. Vick has said to Goodell, Blank, and McKay that he has no idea. Thus far they haven't proved that he has. And until it is he won't be touched, IMO of course.

 

That doesn't matter. If it happened on his property, he's still may incur criminal liability.

 

And if you're naive enough to believe that Ron Mexico "had no clue" what was going on, there are apparently several witnesses willing to testify that he's full of crap.

Quit being so crazy. If you want to argue, let's argue. But this is just senseless back and forth.

Vick only owning the property is best case scenario for him. It makes no sense. Why would this multi-millionaire be a part of an activity that over it's history probably has amounted to the amount of money Vick makes with one commercial. Like I've said either he's a one dumb POS and/or ignorant and irresponsible.

 

edit- flip flopped the last sentence.

For the same reason that Pacman Jones, Chris Henry, and Tank Johnson have engaged in repeated criminal activity: :D THEY'RE IDIOTS!!!

And unless Mike Nifong is heading the prosecution, you can add "criminal" to that list.

From Don Banks' column on Si.com:

 

• Why? That's the question that could be easily overlooked in Vick's current situation. Why would a guy making the millions he's making need to sponsor a dog-fighting ring that could jeopardize his career and personal freedom in order to gamble for mere thousands?

 

One source close to Vick, who I talked to this spring for the story I wrote about the Falcons quarterback's recent slide from grace in Atlanta, gave me a rather blunt rationale for Vick's involvement in dog fighting:

 

"He's not very bright at all,'' the source said of Vick. "And that's a big part of his problems. He's a very unintelligent person and he makes poor decisions because of it. It's not a white or black thing. Paris Hilton is an idiot, too. Mike Tyson was totally dumb, but for a long time his trainer kept him protected from his worst mistakes. You have to have someone around you who can protect you from yourself at times.''

 

Another league source I talked to had a slightly different take. He too watched Vick up close for years and came to this conclusion:

 

"I've seen what he's truly about, and now, the rest of the world sees what he's truly about,'' the source said. "He's not dumb, and he's not a bad guy. He's just selfish. He's an extremely selfish human being. He doesn't care about his team or his teammates. He says he does, but he doesn't.''

 

Harsh words to be sure. But these are some of the same sources who, more than two months ago, assured me Vick -- despite his proclamation of innocence -- was heavily involved in the dog-fighting operation in Virginia, from its earliest stages on. With Tuesday's indictments becoming public, the assessment of those sources has been echoed by federal investigators and a grand jury.

This guy tries to prove that Vick is guilty of this "horrendous" crime but having two sources comparing Vick to Mike Tyson and saying he is selfish.

He didn't try to prove anything. He was SPECULATING as to why Vick MAY have been involved in these criminal activities.

I haven't gone through the threads again, but what I remember as reading through all of these posts was that he was all those things, IF he INDEED did do the things that he is accused of.... If K9 Vick is found guilty, my guess is the Broncos will be ONE of the first people to stand up and post on the board to denouce his actions over these years. :D

 

:D Give Broncos a break... The guy is entitled to his opinion like everyone else on this board and everyone is blasting him from every side because he is presenting an opinion opposite of the HUGH majority of people here.

And if his opinion is completely biased and illogical, he'll continue to get blasted by everyone.

Considering 95% of Federal indictments result in prosecution, and 90% of those accused in federal indictments agree to a plea bargain before a trial happens I'd say its probably safe to drop the IF INDEED scenario.

 

I know this is hard to accept for some. But it is OVER for Vick.

I agree with you on that point, as I was involved in a VERY high profile case several years ago and got to see first hand what the long hand of the Federal government can do... I agree that it looks bleak for him, but who knows.... maybe we all could be wrong... :D

Why train dogs to fight each other in this way? Why not something more interesting...like, say....BABIES!

 

Yeah...1-2 year old babies with knife blades attached to their hands and feet going at it head-to-head in one-time-only, no holds barred, fight-to-the-death steel cage events! Winner takes the pot of HUNDREDS...maybe even THOUSANDS! of dollars! Now THAT'S what I want to see!

 

Sorry...I'm one sick, twisted, evil The preceeding does not represent the views nor opinions of my shrink.

I know,first hand, that in order to get an AUSA to indict, the case better be a slam dunk. If not, they keep sending the agents away for more. When they have what they need, then they still ask for more on top of what you have given them. Then they indict AND have a hammer that makes them plea to a "lesser".

 

 

TOAST :D
