LMAO--But they made it to the playoffs, with a record of 11-5, in a year that they were predicted to win 3 maybe 4 games.(Including YOUR prediction, which was 0 games, LMAO)

Young team, with a bright future, now that they have cleansed themselves of the beast, MV.

Im still waiting on the Falcons to have a capacity crowd. While they have sold out everygame(thank to corporate sponsor buying tickets) overall attendance is still down even with the Falcons making the playoffs.

The last game of the regular season for the Falcons, the main parking lot was only charging $10 dollars! LOL! They charged $20 for the High School championships!

Sure, and you know all this because?? LMAO--Must be sad to be so full of hate for a professional football team, because they are not going to take MV the monster back to play on their team--AND the Falcons made it to the playoffs in a re-building year, as well as won 11 games when they were predicted to have a very hard time winning 3!!

And to boot, LMAO, Matt Ryan is the Rookie of the Year, and Coach Smith is the Coach of the Year. Hilarious!!!

Might as well face it, the Falcons are doing much much better without the monster MV, and Matt Ryan is a true QB, not a egotistical POS, that spends his time torturing, mutilating and killing dogs instead of improving his game, which was actually regressing instead of progressing.

Oh the hypocrisy. You say someone must be so full of hate. Says the person spending all this time posting on a forum committing so much of your time to bash the player.

This is my first time visiting this board and all I see are you posting on every thread.

If anyone is obsessed and filled with hate it is you.

You are the POS if you are this vindictive even if Vick was genuinely remorseful you would not forgive him.

I hope you don't call yourself a Christian

Michael Vick supporters said it at the beginning, "Vick won't do time".

Well they were wrong.

Michael Vick supporters said he made too much money for the NFL and that they would not suspend him

They were wrong yet again.

Vick supporters said that he would not go to prison but instead would do community service projects.

Wrong for the third time.

Vick supporters said that he would be out of prison in under a year.

Wrong yet again.

Vick supporters said the public outcry about his dog fighting activities would not affect his income from endorsements.

Wrong once more.

Vick supporters said he had more than enough money to last him for over 100 years.

Wrong again. He is broke!

Vick supporters said that the NFL would make a deal to obtain his early release from prison.

Wrong again.

Vick supporters said he could go overseas and play for the NFL Europe.

Wrong again. The NFL Europe is out of business.

Vick supporters said that the state of Virginia would drop the remaining charges filed against him.

Wrong again.

Vick supporters claimed that the NAACP would demand that the NFL reinstate him after his sentence was completed.

Wrong again. The NAACP will not comment on this matter at this time.

Now Michael Vick supporters and fans are out of straws and tricks to pull out of their hats and are openly crying that Michael Vick must return to football and those who are against his return they are now showing their hidden anger.

These fanatics are saying it was racism because Mr. Vick was charged with dog fighting and that charge would have been lowered had it been anyone else.

These fan-atics are filled with hatred towards those animal loving and people who stood up for righteousness against Mr. Vick and the THUG lifestyle he openly choose.

We say to them “No Mr. Vick cannot play again”!

There is more to life than football. Let his fall from grace be a example to others not to choose his way of life.

The Atlanta Falcons might be in the playoffs, but fans won't be able to buy game day apparel from Falcons 365 for much longer.

The Falcons 365 stores at Lenox Square and Perimeter Mall will close Dec. 31.

"The economic picture that has affected the country, affects us as well," said Reggie Roberts, vice president of football communications for the Falcons.

The Falcons 365 store took 2,300 square feet at Perimeter Mall, which opened in summer 2005. The Lenox Square store opened in October 2005.

The decision to close the retail stores was also because the Falcons organization has seen sales increase at the Georgia Dome and at its online store, said Kim Shreckengost, executive vice preisdent and chief of staff for the Falcons.

"Given our season, it made more sense for us to focus on online sales from our Web site, which has recently been enhanced, and to make sure we were focusing on sales on game days," Shreckengost said.

No tenants have been named as replacements to the Falcons' team stores.

"As we do with every vacant space, we try to replace it with a new tenant that better fits our mall re-merchandising efforts," said Dennis Kemp, general manager of Perimeter Mall.

Falcons 365 stores are a part of the Arthur M. Blank family of businesses, which includes the Falcons, Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers, the Georgia Force, AMB Group LLC and the Blank Family Foundation.
