NFL Suspends Michael Vick Indefinitely!

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has suspended Michael Vick indefinitely.

The suspension comes after a plea agreement was filed in federal court in Virginia today, in which Vick admitted his involvement in a dogfighting ring.

In a summary of facts in the case, Vick admits to backrolling Bad Newz Kennels and its gambling operation. He also admits to participating in the execution of dogs that did not perform well in testing sessions.

The summary says Vick did not place bets himself, nor did he receive any winnings.

Vick is scheduled to formally enter the plea Monday. The judge in the case is not bound by the sentence recommendations. The charges are punishable by as much as five years in prison.

Vick's attorney says his client's role “was different” than that of his three co-defendants in the case, and he would try to explain that to the court.

The only reason he is on the front page is because he is Black! There are plenty of White pro players that do the same darn thing as Michael Vick! Maybe he went about getting caught all wrong, but basically he just got Lynched! IDIOT! VICK, YOU PUT YOUR TRUST IN THE WRONG HANDS MY MAN!
Of course it will be played out as the Dog fighting scene, but we all know what the real deal with that is. I'm Suprised PETA hasn't jumped all over this.

Hey Mike, you ever watched the movie O?

IMO, PETA, the ASPCA, and every other animal rights group should be breathing down Vick's neck. There are a lot of people out there that think this isn't such a big deal....but it really is! It's cruelty, plain and simple. The fact that Vick got caught has nothing do with with him being black, it has to do with him being stupid for getting involved with it in the first place. I think he should be out of football permanantly, and if they do decide to let him back, I feel sorry for the team that get's him, because they probably won't be liked by the fans or the media very much for it. Too bad too....he had a very promising career.

However I think we all make mistakes so I think Vick should get a second chance as long as he ment that he was sorry.

I would agree with you...if he was genuinely sorry.....but I don't think he is. He is sorry that he got caught, but think about it. If he hadn't, do you think he would have had some sudden epiphany that what he was doing was wrong, and then come forward to say how sorry he was? He'd still be doing it today if he hadn't been caught.

Sadly I don't know if what he said was truly genuine considering someone is selling his "notes" on Ebay (there was a link on Yahoo! Sports a lil while ago about this). This was sick and illegal and he should be banned forever.

And to anyone who thinks it's "Because he's black" please set out into reality. Whether he was Black, White, Purple, Green or Blue, he A) acted ILLEGALLY and got CAUGHT (whether other athletes do this or not is unknown, Vick got caught and was PROVED to be doing this) and B) He participated in gambling, if you know ANYTHING about sports that is a bannable offense (look at the NBA ref). So please stop trying to make things racially oriented when they aren't. It honestly has become obsurd how some people try to link almost anything to racial.

Gambling is a big no no. For that reason Pete Rose will probably never get into the baseball hall of fame. No more glory for "Charley Hustle"!

Yup, Rose was one of the best players to play the game, but you gamble you're screwed.

.....another "left field comment"

My opinion on the whole Vick situation is....he did a very cruel, stupid and inhumane crime AND NOW he MUST pay for it PERIOD!

If he were to have played his ball here in Pittsburgh, we the fans, media, and whoever else wouldve ripped him a new a** hole AND YES, I'M BLACK!

WHICH I FEEL HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SITUATION!

Makes me wonder if he paid someone off at the airport. In a way it's sad because Vick had the ability to be a very good QB.

Funny you would think in 2007 we wouldnt have to RIGHT to talk racism in America but Jena 6 and the recent very hush hush incident in West Virginia where a 20 year old was enslaved for days and forced to eat dog and rat feces makes the "because he is black" very much possible.....I cant call it either way

I am tired of hearing of it personally...He did it he should be punished what I dont understand how he could be faced with up to 40 years for dog fighting when you can kill a human and get 15 years or less

He should spend 40 years in jail for it. As well it's a stupid that you can get 15 for murdering a human being.

On another note, now he failed a drug test, what's next for Vick... any predictions?
