League won't comment on whether Vick is permitted to drink alcohol

We posted an item earlier today regarding an observation from Brian Costello of the New York Post that Eagles quarterback Mike Vick was drinking vodka despite a league-imposed requirement that he abide by the terms of his probation, including “prohibitions regarding drug and alcohol use.”

Despite indications that Vick possibly is prohibited only from “excessive” use of alcohol, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has declined to elaborate on the matter.

“Our press release referred to conditions imposed by the court,” Aiello told us via e-mail. “Anything to do with the league’s program is confidential. I am not aware of any violations to the terms of his reinstatement.”

We then asked Aiello specifically whether Vick is or isn’t prohibited from drinking alcohol, Aiello said, “We are not going to be any more specific on the conditions than what was in the press release.   As I said, I am not aware of any violations of the conditions.”

Even if Vick is permitted to drink alcohol as long as he doesn’t consume “excessive” amounts, wouldn’t the smart move be to drink no alcohol at all? 
In Vick’s case, it’s not enough to simply stay on the right side of the line.  The challenge is to know where the line is, and to stay as far away from it as he possibly can.

UPDATE:  We also contacted Brian Costello of the New York Post in an effort to learn whether the league has contacted him for more information about the report that Vick was drinking vodka, and to get more details as to how Costello knew that Vick was drinking vodka.  Said Costello via e-mail:  “We are not permitted to speak to any media outlets.  It’s a Post policy.  Sorry.”

    Screw it, just let him start another dog fighting ring and get it done with already.

  2. JoeSixPack says: Aug 22, 2009 11:35 PM

    How about a compromise. Vick can consume alcohol as long as it’s rubbing alcohol.
    I think PETA might be ok with that… though technically humans ARE animals.

    Let’s go, Florio.
    Where’s your “Cutler kicked ass after I bad-mouthed him all week” post?

  4. southernboi727 says: Aug 22, 2009 11:43 PM

    Yes, he is allowed to drink alcohol. Just not to do anything stupid while drinking.

  5. FireStarter says: Aug 22, 2009 11:49 PM

    Who cares. This guy is under the biggest mircoscope in the world. Every other Ex-con gets out and must deal with the terms of his release. No one is asking if “Joe-Shmo” has had a drink…
    Look – I hate what he did. BUT – if his crime was drug or alcohal related then you have a point. Sadly, his crime was committed while sober. (By that – I mean one might Hope no one would choose to do what he did – while sober and in control of one’s functions…) If you want to hate the man – do it, but his crime was unrelated to him drinking. If he has a drink – so be it….
    Now – if he get’s F’d up and causes a problem – that’s another thing… But as far as I’m concerned, Him having a drink doesn’t mean much… If Stallworth is having a drink, call me..

    So he can’t spread herpes under an assumed name, hide weed in a secret compartment, or attach a car battery to wet dog balls? Let Mike Mexico take a slug of the Goose! Florio’s a damn Nazi!

  7. houskat says: Aug 22, 2009 11:49 PM

    how bout them Staints, hell yea!
    how bout unremorsful M, Vick, if this true, he
    should be baned from nfl. I know he had a hard
    day at the office and was whinning down and had a drink like some of us law abiding workers.
    Hell, whatcha gonna do?

  13. YouGuysAreIdiots says: Aug 22, 2009 11:56 PM

    Damn Florio. Your site is going to shit.
    Back in the day this place was entertaining and once in a blue moon broke some “news”. Now, it is typical paparazzi crap and open speculation convoluted to resemble fact.
    I am no fan of Vick or the Eagles, but this stuff is real bitch of you to toss out and press the league on.
    I have a prediction for you Florio; I predict this site losses half of it’s regular viewers within a year. The NBC coupling along has not helped this site one inch.
    You’re burning bridges in the league, and that may explain why your drivel is no different than can be found at a dozen other sites.
    Basically…..best stop biting the hand that feeds you.

  14. houskat says: Aug 23, 2009 12:00 AM

    It could of been worse, Vick could’a shot a hole in his leg.

  15. TSE says: Aug 23, 2009 12:07 AM

    What do we need the NFL to comment on it for? You’ve already attacked Michael Vick in your article about his alleged alcohol consumption w/o having knowledge of whether that is in violation of his agreement, so why bother to check the facts after the fact, you should do that kind of homework before you attack somebody. UGGH.

  16. FumbleNuts says: Aug 23, 2009 12:07 AM

  21. Ron In Charlotte says: Aug 23, 2009 12:23 AM

    C’mon people. He was out having a drink. You guys take it too far. Yeah he is a despicable human being, but having a drink or two with friends. He could be doing many other worse things.

  22. mad555 says: Aug 23, 2009 12:36 AM

    Hey Florio, I can’t even read the damn vick article because of your sell out pontiac ad is going right through the article and it won’t let me close it. Every time I try to click the close button in the top right it switches back to the black ad with no close button. Jesus chirst, now your shitty site just got even shittier with spam ads. you’re F’in awsome, Florio…

  23. Raw Deal says: Aug 23, 2009 12:45 AM

    It’s none of your business if he drinks or how many times he wipes his ass, he’s a grown man. Keep your judgements directed towards your son…

  24. Doug O says: Aug 23, 2009 12:49 AM

    It aint your job to worry about if he can or can’t Florio

  25. cw2147 says: Aug 23, 2009 12:49 AM

    Mike Vick is a grown as man. As long as he was not drinking and driving this should not be a issue. You guys are making it a issue. Leave the dude alone! jeeez!!

  26. Display Name says: Aug 23, 2009 12:55 AM

    What is it with you Florio? Did Vick father your children or give you the clap on one of your secret ‘VW Bus’ trips that your wife doesn’t know about (yet)?
    Get over it, he was reinstated. Stop writing 30 blog entries pre day on him or go get a room with with him.
    He’s allowed to drink, he just can’t get raving drunk. Now get over it loser.

  27. deang72 says: Aug 23, 2009 12:56 AM

    The guy goes to jail for dog fighting and there’s a restriction on his drinking? He didn’t commit a drug crime.
    They were dogs not people… I like pets but some of the weirdos on him placing them at the level of humans is ridiculous. I’m sure most of the world is laughing at us for jailing a guy who fights something they consider food.

  28. Kidekk says: Aug 23, 2009 12:59 AM

    This situation is akin to drinking and driving: people are prohibited from driving after drinking a certain amount. In everyone’s case, it’s not enough to stay on the right side of the line. The challenge is to know where the line is, and to stay as far away from it as possible. Yet, people will still have one or two drinks and drive.
    Your suggestion/pontification is, how do I put it, rather pointless. You might as well have run a drunk driving ad in the space.

  29. kjfisher says: Aug 23, 2009 1:12 AM

    You either are stalking this man or are using him to drive your website traffic up. Either way I am done with you and it wont be long before others are as well.

  30. sonnyandsam says: Aug 23, 2009 2:23 AM

    Why should there be any alcohol restriction? He wasn’t drunk when he killed those dogs. It’s not like he was drunk and ran over a person like Stallworth. It’s not like he was drinking like Burress when he shot himself. What does drinking have to do with what Vick did and served time for?
    Perhaps he should be restricted from going to the pool….after all he drowned the dogs. Perhaps you think he should be prevented from walking on the ground since he slammed those dogs into the ground when he killed them. Perhaps you prefer he have his hands cut off since that is what he used to kill those dogs. And certainly you don’t want him playing football because Vick is a violent man and football is a violent game.
    Alcohol restriction….please…..try a little harder to match up an appropriate punishment to what he did.

    O no!! I forgot that drinking alcohol over the age of 21 is forbidden!! How will he go on!! Give us a break, nothing wrong with being released from jail and having a few drinks to chill out….all of you people (such as Florio) need to find something else to dwell on…

  36. KevinFaulk-an-a says: Aug 23, 2009 6:34 AM

    Well, the NFL doesn’t know if Vick is allowed to drink or not, so let’s ask God… or better yet, let’s ask Tony Dungy!

  37. famucancer says: Aug 23, 2009 6:47 AM

    He’s too old for a babysitter. There is no doubt that he doesn’t “get it.”

  39. tx_eagle says: Aug 23, 2009 7:41 AM

    unless he was directly told otherwise by the court or the nfl, I see nothing wrong with it… last time I checked it wasn’t illegal for a man over 21 to have a cold beverage every once and a while…

  40. mazjimmy says: Aug 23, 2009 7:48 AM

    ok you have had your fun. Vick did his time, lost alot, and deserves a chance to recover. I enjoy a little BBQ dog, on the reservation it’s good eats! So why do you think, since Vick is “off paper”, can vote again, is more athletic than any of us, anyone should tell him whether he can drink booze. Have you not had your pound of flesh, will you stop drinking if Vick has to? I doubt it.Florio you are a hack, your opinions suck and so do you!

  41. grey32 says: Aug 23, 2009 7:55 AM

    You have become consumed with stirring up garbage for personal gain to the point of embarassment to the folks who have been following this site for over three years.
    We know Vick’s case put this site on the map. But seriously, now you are just being annoying and look like a desperate fool.

    Goodell is playing favorites with Vick. the only thing that’ll get him suspended is a serrious felony where Vick is caught redhanded.
    Roger Goodell = Worst commisioner EVER!

  45. Opie says: Aug 23, 2009 8:10 AM

    Not sure that alcohol had anything to do with his dawg fighting. I mean, did he only fight dogs while he drank excessive amounts of alcohol?
    He isn’t Donte Stallworth. I understand what you are trying to say, but it is a bit over the top. The guy spent a couple years on some sort of prison, so he probably is needing a drink of some kind.
    At the end of the day, if he isn’t violating anything, then it doesn’t matter what anyone else things……except for the Commish.

  46. Zatko says: Aug 23, 2009 8:14 AM

    This is a non-story.
    Did he have a drinking problem prior to or during his dog-fighting troubles? I never really cared for the guy (pre-Felon or ever) but the last time I checked, alcohol was legal.
    Let this guy move on for crying out loud. I understand the NFL not commenting… don’t you Florio? If you asked them to condone drinking alcohol by anyone… do you think they would? Probably not… why would they ever want to put themselves in that position? That would be foolish.
    You know, I’m starting to agree with all of the people who say that his site has taken a turn since the business decision to start getting paid for something you were doing for “free”. COme on… don’t sell out to “the man”… AKA… the allmighty dollar. If it’s not too late.

  47. BirdWeisErrr says: Aug 23, 2009 8:23 AM

    For those of you that can’t quite figure it out, drinking alcohol IS A VIOLATION OF HIS PROBATION AND OF THE TERMS OF HIS REINSTATEMENT!!
    This is what irritates me about the internet. You find yourself having to explain yourself to idiots that aren’t gonna understand anyway.
    The terms of his probation and the terms of his reinstatement to the NFL PROHIBIT him from, among other things, drinking and using illegal drugs.
    He is due to make 1.6 million this year in the NFL. If he gets caught drinking and gets kicked out of the league, he’d be almost as dumb as those of you that don’t see anything wrong with it.

  49. Fan_Of_ Four says: Aug 23, 2009 8:50 AM

    I wonder how much weed he has smoked up already? Vick of all people should understand that he is going to be under a microscope after doing the things he did. He has to make a choice, do I want my Carreer and the millions it can bring me or do I want to drink and smoke with my buddies ? If he cant for go this crap for the remainder of his football career he should be banned. Yes a lot of players drink but they also didn’t just get out of prison for murdering dogs.

  50. The Dox says: Aug 23, 2009 9:19 AM

    Wow…. drinking and dogfighting are somehow correlated now? (Please tell me that Mister Fancypants Lawyer knows how probation works)

  51. bigtimesuperstar says: Aug 23, 2009 9:23 AM

    Ugh…trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Since it seems you don’t actually know the exact conditions of his probation and conditional reinstatement to the league, just give it a rest.

  52. Chris says: Aug 23, 2009 9:40 AM

    Vick should have never been allowed back in the league. I guarantee if I pulled all the crap he pulled I would not be allowed to return to my job even at a lowered salary. I praise Florio! Whatever it takes to get this THUG out of the league and out of a position to be a potential role model for my kid!
    My understanding is that if you are on probation for anything, one of the stipulations is that you can not consume alcohol at all. Probably because criminals historically make bad decisions and alcohol impairs your decision making ability if overconsumed. Do any of you really think Vick only had a couple of drinks?

  53. empty13 says: Aug 23, 2009 9:44 AM

    where is “vicksfaileddrugtest:
    nto to mention what of vick’s failed drug test? airport episode, anyone?
    just a matter of time.
    and if vick’s manlove crowd doesnt like the attention vick is getting now, it’s ookie’s damn fault for being a self-centered, lying, immoral, dopesmoking, dogkilling, game-throwing, non-defense-reading inaccurate passer and lousy excuse for a qb.
    no vick supporter can explain why or how the falcons spoiled 6-2 and 5-3 starts in 2005/2006 and went 2-6 down the stretch both years.
    no black twitfan of vick can comprehend just how that happened. well either he sucks or he threw games.

  54. edogma says: Aug 23, 2009 9:54 AM

    Florio – I am a fan of the site, but posts like this are bringing it down. Its getting more and more like TMZ and that makes me want to never look at this site again.

  55. as big as a hat says: Aug 23, 2009 9:56 AM

    Nearly every Vick article Florio posts generates an incredible deluge of comments. The more you comment, the more you encourage him.

  56. stanjam says: Aug 23, 2009 9:59 AM

    Excessive is such an arbitrary term anyways. Most times that definition, should it exist, is up to a judge. Normally when they ban someone from using alcohol, they usually mean no alcohol at all, and any violation can be used to send you back. This helps keep those judgements like “excessive” from being made. Like how Vick is not allowed to own a dog. They didn’t say “may not own an excessive number of dogs,” but “no dogs.”
    I say throw him back in the slammer, and let his cell mate be the ugliest, most unwashed PETA member the courts can find.

  71. Mariann Pepitone says: Aug 23, 2009 4:04 PM

    What is the big deal with Costello. If Vick wants to have a few beers or a cocktail or two it shouldn’ t matter to the public. He’s paying for it not Costelllo. Vick is only 29 years of age and should enjoy himself. Besides that its Vick’s own business what he does. As stated on the news media 60% of college students are on drugs and alchohol. I am not a fan of Vick’s but right is right and wrong is wrong. Goodell put too many restrictsons on Vick. Its like prison all over again.

    I believe Vick had plenty of time to think about the mistake he made in his life and is now trying to redeem himself, changing his life around for the better. Of course, what he did was criminal but at that time he was not thinking that until he got caught and spent time in prison. Now, the Eagles are taking a chance that he will never do criminal acts again. Having a few beers with the team or with friends should not make him a bad person. He is 29 years of age and should be out dating and having fun. Goodell should change some of his restructions on Vick and since he reinstated him he should have the same rights as the other players. If Vick works for the Humane Society this would be a good job for him to be around dogs and cats which would be a reminder of what he did. Like I stated before I am a very severe animal lover more so than animal rights but I do not hate Vick, I hate the sin he committed.

    And we could have stopped it all, Rex! We could have stopped it, if only we’d stopped Vick at the first sign of trouble.
    I knew when I saw him with that fruity vodka drink that it was but one small step to HUMAN-DOG HYBRID CAGEFIGHTING.
    Vick’s obviously taking his evil to a whole other level, and it all started with that drink!
    I sure hope Florio and his merry band of moral crusaders succeeds in stopping this man who is CLEARLY intent on throwing his freedom in our faces by having a drink quietly at a bar with some friends.

    And in addition, Florio, I love how you continue to hound Vick for having a drink while allowing empty13 to openly spew racism on your website’s comments.
    If it’s Vick’s intent to violate his parole by having a drink, surely by NOT banning empty13 after months of racial slams against black people, you’re revealing your intent to encourage racist speech.

    I disagree with some of the comments. Vick is given a second chance and I am sure he will live u;p to expectations. Like I said, he should work for the Humane Society which would be a reminder of what he did. Goodell stated Vick could not own a dog. Maybe not now but later. I think it would do him some good. Not a Pit Bull but maybe a German Shephard, no Rots or Dobermans. It is too soon to tell because he has not been out of prison long enough. We all have to wait and see what happems. I still believe he is remorseful. Vick already knows he is one of the most hated human beings especially by Sen. Byrd who has dogs. BUT WE HAVE TO MOVE FORWARD AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. VICK HASN’T BEEN OUT OF PRISON LONG ENOUGH.

    “Florio, when you look in the mirror what do you see?
    People like you who are the most judgmental are usually the ones in the most need of judgment. ”
    I bet he seems someone who has not committed a felony.
    One step above Mikey.

    Ridiculous! Why can’t we read about football and the tremendous matchups this season holds in store for us. This constant gossip crud has to go Florio. C’mon man. Be a sportscaster, not a drama queen.
