Wetting down a dog and electrocuting it because it lost a fight and others, hanging, drowning, body slamming to the ground and other methods for poor performing dogs.

They should do the same to him. IMO

another thing Total Access brought up that i really didnt think about was that the NFL players who typically go to trial usually have theri cout dates delayed untill the off season. the 3 other defendants who are not NFL players have the right to a "speedy" trial.

Rons lawyers got their hands full.

Also gives them guys there first shot at plea's to shaft vick and get lesser time. Even tho everyone pretty well knows vick is guilty. How much of his fame will get him off. Our how much money will he spend on the judges new pool.

No way Vick's trial is before the season is over, IMO. If The comish is waiting to see what happens in the courts, then I'd say Vick plays this year. The comish will just have to hope that the Falcons are middle of the road this year, which keeps them out of the news better than if tey are very good or very poor.

No way he lets Vick play out the season.Vick will be suspended before the season starts,probally before training camp.

My prediction: Indefinate suspension.If found innocent,he comes back into the league immediatly.If found guilty,he is kicked out for good.

I don't think his money and fame will get him off for this.This is a federal prosecution which means federal judges and laywers...not some DA who runs a convienant store on the side.He won't be able to bribe anyone,or outspend the prosecution like OK Simpson did.

If/when convicted,he'll be given the maximum scentance for his crimes,which will end his career anyways.

I was thinking the same thing. Tank Johnson, Pacman Jones, and Chris Henry were multiple recidivists.

He may not be a repeat lawbreaker (that we know of at least) but he is a repeat scumbag.

The Ron Mexico situation (good job Mike,spreading the gift that keeps on giving!)

Flipping to bird to the Falcon fans

Now the dogfighting

Agreed no trial for anyone until 2008; plenty of motions to be hashed out before then.

However, it is not as if that kicks the can down the road and everyone will just cheer for #7 until then. Atlanta sports talk tonight is having fun with Arthur Blank having said for the last several years what an upstanding organization he has developed in Atlanta. Combine that with Blank having indulged Vick (firing Dan Reeves; pushing Vick's wheelchair around when Vick broke his leg) and a lot of fans are saying that Blank will have some problems if he just says this is a league matter. Vick had alienated a lot of folks with Ron Mexico, flipping the bird to the fans, and his special "jewelry bottle" even before this.

Now Vick is in deep, deep water playing in a state where the most beloved team (college or pro) is named the Dawgs and has Ugga the bulldog as its mascot, given this allegation on page 17 of the indictment - “In or about April of 2007, [two other defendants] and Vick executed approximately eight dogs that did not perform well in ‘testing’ sessions at 1915 Moonlight Road by various methods, including hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.”

To give everyone a flavor for how amped up this situation is in Atlanta, a column by Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Mark Bradley (He is not a big fan of #7 - ) ends with this admonition:


http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/sha...ge_tab_newstab

AJC.COM NOTE: Due to the volatile subject nature of the Vick investigation, this blog will be opened for comments on Wednesday morning. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

This is going to tear up the Atlanta sports community..
