lol. for sure.

and if you look at ticket sales, flash, hope of the next michael jordan (one man show), and putting asses in the seats, then vick was the man.

ironic the heat the chargers took for trading vick jordon for small school tomlinson. vick is on federal indictments and tomlinson is the Walter Payton Man of the Year.

Falcons | Vick named numerous times in indictment
Wed, 18 Jul 2007 14:34:11 -0700

Hank Kurz Jr., of the Associated Press, reports, unlike other documents, the name of Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick can be seen numerous times in the indictment for Vick and three other men. In the indictment, Vick allegedly was consulted before a wounded dog who lost a dog fight was doused with water and electrocuted. Also, Vick supposedly gave the owners of the winning dogs $23,000 in a bag in March 2003, when the dogs from "Bad Newz Kennels" lost. The indictment said Vick was known as "Ookie" in the dog fighting world. Other things mentioned in the indictment were that when eight dogs where considered not good fighters, the dogs were killed "by hanging, drowning and/or slamming at least one dog's body to the ground." Another thing stated in the indictment was that the purses for the dog fights ranged from hundreds to thousands of dollars a match.

Aye.

But I meant take a hit as in from activists, media, etc.

Of course the francise will take a hit (as well as Blank's back pocket), but PETA activists outside Home Depot screaming for his blood seems unlikely (not to mention severely misdirected).

Flash is right. As in "In the pan".

Mike Vick will be another footnote in history.

Plus, the AJC has a poll

Atlanta-based InsiderAdvantage polled 859 people by telephone overnight Tuesday and found that 45.9 percent think the Falcons should release Vick. Another 45.7 percent said the team should keep him until a verdict is rendered. And 8.4 percent had no opinion.

The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Whites were far more likely than blacks to think that Vick, who is African-American, should be dumped immediately. Among whites, 54.4 percent polled thought he should be released, 36.7 percent that he should stay until there was a verdict, and 8.9 percent had no opinion.

Among black respondents, only 26.6 percent thought he should be released, 65.6 percent said wait until the verdict, and 7.8 percent had no opinion.

Absolutely stunning news that this is breaking down on racial lines in Atlanta
