    Posted about 6 minutes ago on NFL.com:

    Following are excerpts from Commissioner Goodell’s letter to Vick:
    » "Your admitted conduct was not only illegal, but also cruel and reprehensible. Your team, the NFL, and NFL fans have all been hurt by your actions."
    » "Your plea agreement and the plea agreements of your co-defendants also demonstrate your significant involvement in illegal gambling. Even if you personally did not place bets, as you contend, your actions in funding the betting and your association with illegal gambling both violate the terms of your NFL Player Contract and expose you to corrupting influences in derogation of one of the most fundamental responsibilities of an NFL player."
    » "You have engaged in conduct detrimental to the welfare of the NFL and have violated the league’s Personal Conduct Policy."
    » "I will review the status of your suspension following the conclusion of the legal proceedings. As part of that review, I will take into account a number of factors, including the resolution of any other charges that may be brought against you, whether in Surry County, Virginia, or other jurisdictions, your conduct going forward, the specifics of the sentence imposed by Judge Hudson and any related findings he might make, and the extent to which you are truthful and cooperative with law enforcement and league staff who are investigating these matters."
    » "I have advised the Falcons that, with my decision today, they are no longer prohibited from acting and are now free to assert any claims or remedies available to them under the Collective Bargaining Agreement or your NFL Player Contract."



    It doesn't pay to look the Commish in the eye and tell him lies.

    Where have you been? They know exactly where he is in the hierarchy. He's a small fish with a big name... and with a black book full of bigger names... that will lead to the money men. It's all about the money... the feds don't give a **** how many dogs die as long as the money trail stops growing.

    The Feds got their cut in the end - they own Michael Vick's agreement to testify for them. He is now their personal fink on all things dog.

    Wow, he is seriously in the freakin Dog House. Really sad way how Vicks life and career have turned out. Some advice for you rich athletes: Cut ALL ties with the bad friends from the hood. Or get new ones. Man, thank GOD we traded him for LT. The Football gods felt we had suffered enough with Leaf I guess.

    Vick will make a ton of money out of this. Rumor mill has it the new upstart UFL may pursue Vick as their boy. That should keep the tabloids flowing and act as instant marketing.

    The Mike Vick era and getting dog fighting legalized again has just begun !!! :lama

    IS DMX MIKE'S FIRST VICTIM?

    With Mike Vick pleading guilty to federal conspiracy charges and agreeing to "provide all information known to [him] regarding any criminal activity as requested by the government," is it a coincidence that one day after Vick signed the papers the house of rapper DMX was raided, and 12 "distressed" pit bulls were removed?

    If Vick truly was a dog fighting "heavyweight," would Vick not know about other celebrities who engage in the sport?

    It's possible that it really was a coincidence. But it's also possible that any and all high-profile sports and entertainment figures will soon be getting a visit from guys with guns and badges.


    ............ as I said ... Hush Money !!!

    Yes and No.

    In order for that to happen someone would have to sign Vick as a free agent.

    It could be as low as $3.7 Million.

    VICK SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY

    On the same day that a signed plea agreement and statement of facts was filed regarding Mike Vick's admission of guilt regarding federal conspiracy charges relating to gambling and dog fighting, Commissioner Roger Goodell placed Vick on an indefinite suspension.

    "Your admitted conduct was not only illegal, but also cruel and reprehensible," Goodell wrote in a letter to Vick. "Your team, the NFL, and NFL fans have all been hurt by your actions."

    As to the gambling angle, which much of the media has overlooked or ignored, Goodell said, "Your plea agreement and the plea agreements of your co-defendants also demonstrate your significant involvement in illegal gambling. Even if you personally did not place bets, as you contend, your actions in funding the betting and your association with illegal gambling both violate the terms of your NFL Player Contract and expose you to corrupting influences in derogation of one of the most fundamental responsibilities of an NFL player."

    A final decision on Vick's status won't be made in the near term. As Goodell explained to Vick, "I will review the status of your suspension following the conclusion of the legal proceedings. As part of that review, I will take into account a number of factors, including the resolution of any other charges that may be brought against you, whether in Surry County, Virginia, or other jurisdictions, your conduct going forward, the specifics of the sentence imposed by Judge Hudson and any related findings he might make, and the extent to which you are truthful and cooperative with law enforcement and league staff who are investigating these matters."

    In other words, Goodell will continue to monitor the developments and to study Vick's actions. We have a feeling that Thursday night's P.R. charade (with which ESPN gladly complied, possibly in the hopes of getting the first exclusive Mike Vick interview) has not helped Vick's cause.

    Integrity is something that can be lost only once; Vick has proven himself to be a liar, and one of the persons to whim he lied with a straight face was Roger Goodell. How can Goodell trust anything that Vick says in the future, especially when his legal representatives are funneling phony scoops to unknown reporters?

    Goodell also has given the Falcons the green light to take any actions against Vick that they see fit under his contract and the CBA. Our guess is that the Falcons will file a grievance promptly, since Vick will be in default under his contract as soon as he misses a single practice or game. They could be able to recover more than $28 million, but the number also could be as low as $3.75 million.

    It's also possible that the Falcons will cut Vick after filing the grievance. Though releasing him could undermine the team's ability to recover bonus money previously paid to him, owner Arthur Blank will have to ask himself whether it's more important to chase Vick for a refund, or to get Vick's name off of the books.
