This unruly bunch of players is probably why Petrino bolted for Arkansas...this team needs a strong coach who will send a message to the well paid players with a bad attitude.

Maybe they should get someone to come in and body slam the s#¤* out of them, they seem to think this behavoir is ok for animals so why not them.

Doesn't anyone get that this is abhorrent behavior??? Michael Vick is one sick puppy, and no one with half a brain would condone any of his dog fighting activities including the brutal slaying of the dogs. Maybe these players should be scrutinized for their activities off the field. Michael Vick should be put away for a long, long time and never be able to play pro sports again. The man is a psychopath.

this shows that some people do not know what their responsibilities are to the public. what mr. vick did was very inhuman, we the people do not consider this O.K. the players have their priorities messed up.

These guys are just punks just like Mikey. The only difference in them and the yard trash that deals drugs on the corner or car-jacks on Friday nights is that they can run and jump better and have made millions from it. Deep down they're just thugs and should really be doing time.

vick is not their kid. He's a sadistic idiot who chose to fight, kill, and torture dogs for sport and enjoyment over a 7 year period. If you think that is somebody worth supporting you have a screw loose or some wires crossed upstairs.

And, if I had a kid who did that I would not support him, I would kick his ass all the way to the police station.

I have a kid neutral and I would do the same. Perhaps if Vick's mother had instilled something resembling morals in him and his brother they would have turned out to be decent human beinfs.

Those Falcons players who side with the very person who ruined their team have been sandbagging all season to make it look like the team is nothing without vick. They should all be fired for unprofessional conduct.
