What I love about this whole dog fighting thing is some people really don't think its a big deal....First off its a felony.....So right there should tell the idiots right there thats why dog fighting is why its a big deal....Second its just cruel to do that to animals........I hope Vick never plays another NFL game.....He can go play in the United Football League or whatever league that is set to open in 2008. ....

i think he will be found innocent and goodell will apologize for scrutinizing him.

the whole case probably hinges on offering a plea deal to 1 of the other 3 "associates" in hopes that they snitch to the authorities in order to land vick. it wont happen. these guys are proffessional criminals and not afraid to go to jail. there will be a HUGE vick payday waiting for them when they get out.

chris mortensen just said that since vick is not a repeat offender, goodell will probably have to wait for a conviction and that he wont be able to be suspended without justice running its course. vick will play. the commissioner cant do crap.

Don't bet on Vick walking away from this Tony - this is the Justice Dept., not a local DA who operates a bait shop on the side and needs to run for re-election.

As for Mortensen, ESPN of course has been saying Vick is in the clear when not running such breaking news events as "who is more now?" This is a PR nightmare for the NFL in general and Arthur Blank + Nike in particular.

Here is the link to the indictment, with numerous references to 4 CWs (cooperating witnesses) who presumably already have cut their plea deals. IMHO the USAO for the ED Virginia did not cut those deals to nab "P Funk", "Q", or "T", but to nab #7 in your program, who also goes by the name "Ookie" in the attached indictment.

Maybe Vick can get a commutation if the sentence is "excessive."

It's profiling, I tell ya....profiling!!!!

I gotta feel bad for the Falcon fans.........what a let down to have the player with the key position on your team be such a scumbag.

even though i knew it was federal indictments, i was still in the frame of mind it would be his lawyers vs. the VA po-dunks. so i guess its gonna be better than marcia clark and chris darden handling the case?

thanks for the link. the fact that they have 4 CW's definitely shows the feds are more into getting the "trafficker/drug lord" big fish, as opposed to the "dealer on the street selling dime bags" small fry. depending on how loud they sing it could be a slam dunk case. i gotta think they wont squeal unless they feel no threat from getting whacked by an "enterouge" member currently in prison.

oh yeah, "whose more now" absolutely sucks.
