    Agreed; Vick should not procreate.
    I just listened to the contributing attorney for ESPN and he said that he will need to turn himself in this week or be arrested and then post bail attend a hearing and then the trial would not be any time this season. That's a shame it takes that long to get something like this underway.

    I heard that because he is a co-defendant in the case the other defendants have the right to a speedy trial and can request it begin now, but I doubt Vicks buddies would hang him out to dry. But i guess ya never know

    The NFL has issued a statement on the indictment of Falcons quarterback Michael Vick on conspiracy charges relating to a dog fighting operation that was allegedly operated on property he owns:

    We are disappointed that Michael Vick has put himself in a position where a federal grand jury has returned an indictment against him. We will continue to closely monitor developments in this case, and to cooperate with law enforcement authorities. The activities alleged are cruel, degrading and illegal. Michael Vick's guilt has not yet been proven, and we believe that all concerned should allow the legal process to determine the facts. The matter will be reviewed under the league's Personal Conduct Policy.
    The statement that Vick's guilt hasn't been proven (not to mention the curious use of the word "yet") is noteworthy because NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has indicated with his suspensions of Titans cornerback Pacman Jones, Bengals receiver Chris Henry and former Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson that he doesn't feel the need to wait until the legal system runs its course before issuing suspensions. Will he react to the Vick case differently?

    Roger is having all sorts of fun this off-season.
    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.

    Why isn't everyone on the bandwagon again screaming for him to be banned like Pacman Jones, ridiculous...Vick should get a harder sentence from Goodell then Pacman did. Hey Commish, you paying attention???

    Indicted and guilty are two very different things. Either way, Goodell should be handing out some form of suspension.

    I would think that, at some point, Vick will be suspended, for this season. Possibly, for his own good. The pressure, from fans, would be too much, for anyone to stand, this year. If he does play, this year, I think he will crumble, in the face of all of that pressure. I don't think I could handle it.
