Well that black bastard should be doomed from ever playing football again, should lose everything he ever had along with his dopey family, first he is a lousey quaterback, Eagles taught him many lessons, the fans will and should boo him everywhere he goes, he has given football a horrible name, along with the Falcons, and the owner of that team needs to get rid of the scumbag instead of liking him so much. but this black Jack A$$, he is a disgrace to humanity. He has scorned all the black good players out there. Everyone involved in this dog fighting ring INCLUDING ANY FOOTBALL PLAYERS BLACK OR WHITE should be thrown out on their ears..He is a freak anyway

Why has he only "scorned all the black good players out there" rather than scorning ALL players? Or more likely, just himself? Dog fighting has historically been a white, rural practice and only in recent years has it grown rapidly into the urban areas.

I just don't get why his race has anything to do with it.

How about we wait for a trial, or at least a statement from Vick?

MadMan, were the Duke lacrosse players responsible for destroying college lacrosse? Did they scorn all white lacrosse players? Should they have lost everything they had, like their good names and reputations?

Too much rushing to judgement in this country. I personally feel he's in deep crap and probably seriously involved in this activity. And he'll most likely go to jail, lose his career, and have to get by on the $40-50 million he has now.

His silence about this tells the story don't you think? I am not the type to judge either, but I totally agree with you that he was involved in this. They must have some hard evidence you would think to indict. Just so sad so many kids look up to him. I just hope justice will prevail on this case.

Put him in a pit, tied to one of the "rape stands" that was confiscated and let the dogs after him.

I agree with the MAD MAN to a point, scorning all the players, well I believe the public will not take this out on other players, BUT he did scorn the Falcons, and if I were his front line, well guess what I would step aside and say HAVE FUN. White rural sport, maybe, ancient sport yes, but HE GOT CAUGHT and that is the bottom line.. They put Pete Rose on a cross and he was a far more better player than most, now put Vick on the cross as well. Cause he is no better, a bet here or there, no big deal, but total destruction of a good given animal, and the tortue of these dogs, surpasses a bet or 2 !!! CRUCIFY VICK

Anyone in the dogfighting business is a punk-a$$ thug. Black or white, latino or asian, it doesn't matter - - they are all scum and deserve to be ripped apart and eviscerated like the dogs they pit against each other. This multimillionaire moron VICK should be made to forfeit EVERY cent and all his ASSets to the various Animal rescue and Humane Societies so that all these pit bulls pulled from the property can live out their lives. Better yet, add an education program of anti-dogfighting to the nation's curricula to be taught to little boys and girls...

I have a shoe. I think you can guess where I would most like to put it. Hint: it involves a dark area of one Michael Vick's backside.

You are correct. Race has no place in this conversation. Dogfighting is just disgusting. I am sorry that some people are just glad to see a black quarterback fail, just as I am sad to see others claim this trouble is some kind of racist persecution of a black player. Michael Vick is just not a good human being, and his career will never be what he had the talent to make it. It has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with character and Vick's lack of it.

Actually, I think he was released from the practice squad. If he was resigned, I was not aware.
