Mike Vick: Morals or Cash?

You would hope the choice would be decency; you would hope the choice would be morals.

Direct from

The Atlanta Falcons issued the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court indictment of Falcons QB Michael Vick Tuesday evening:

"This situation has been troubling to many people, including our fans, during the last few months. With today’s news, our club and team will continue to be tested as Michael works through the legal process toward a conclusion.

We are disappointed that one of our players – and therefore the Falcons – is being presented to the public in a negative way, and we apologize to our fans and the community for that.

Obviously, we are disturbed by today’s news from Virginia. However, we are prepared to deal with it, and we will do the right thing for our club as the legal process plays out. We have a season to prepare for and training camp opens next week. Our plan is to continue to do everything we can to support our players and coaches."

The Falcons still don't get it. Michael Vick is presenting himself - and the Falcons - negatively; no one else is presenting him that way, he did it by himself. The Falcons should seriously reconsider what they believe to be "the right thing" for their club and start thinking about acting on humane morals rather than cash.

  1. I think that when he does not play well, they should bash his head in or electrocute him, like he did to those poor dogs when they did not win their fight.
    I have lost all respect for Mike Vick and the Falcons for keeping him in the game.
