I wonder if you can still order a personalized #7 Falcons jersey with FIDO on the back.
Dunno, bt they already blocked #7 jerseys with "Ookie" on the back. Add that to Ron Mexico, and Vick is responsible for 2 names NFL Shop won't put on the back of a jersey.

Agree 100%...he's certainly entitled to his day in court, but if you want endorsements you have to watch the company you keep.

Yes, he's entitled to his day in court. And he is innocent until proven guilty in our Justice System. But, I doubt that the GA county where this is taking place would move for the indictment if they didn't have all their ducks in a row. Come on, I have to believe Vick is involved. It happened on his property. Then you have the water botttle incident that was just swept under the carpet. Vick is a poser. Not an NFL starting QB IMO. If he could develop a presence in the pocket, he'd be more dangerous.

If anyone ever wonders how formerly great civil rights organizations that contributed so much in the 50s and 60s have lost their moral standing by knee jerk playing of the race card, ponder this:

The SCLC is calling for more fair and balanced media coverage of the case and has plans to honor Vick next month during its national convention in Atlanta for his community leadership and contributions.

Just a shame.

That kind of stuff just pollutes race discussions that need to happen.

Yep, yep, and yep.

My hope is that people will start to learn from this.

Rumor has it that Michael Vick is going to be suspended by the NFL for at least the coming season. The NFL is afraid his presence in any stadium will cause a riot. I heard this on KDKA. Don't have a link yet, so at this point, I consider it only a rumor.

Paul Zeise from the Post-Gazette is on Sports Showdown on KDKA defending that bastard. He is saying Goodell should not have the power to suspend Vick. What the hell does he think the commish should do - pat him on the back for torturing animals?
