I really don’t know what to say about this. Michael Vick is one of the most talented football players to lace up cheats in the last 5 – 7 years. He is fast. He throws lasers. He is Michael Vick. I don’t know what to think about this dog fighting thing. Did he think that he was above it all? Was he used by people that he trusted? Is he being railroaded? I don’t know. All I know is if you are a Black Athlete in today’s world, you have to be clean. Period. You aren’t going to get Scooter Libby breaks.
Update from WaPo:
A federal grand jury in Richmond indicted Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and three other men yesterday on charges related to their alleged operation of a dogfighting ring based at a property Vick owns in southeastern Virginia.
Vick, one of the NFL’s most exciting players, was charged with competitive dogfighting and conducting the venture across state lines. The 19-page indictment alleged Vick was highly involved in the operation, alleging that he attended fights and paid off bets when his dogs lost. It said he also was involved in the executions of dogs that did not perform well. (more…)
