Calls commence for Eagles to part ways with Mike Vick

We’ve tried several times over the past two days to articulate the fundamental problem with Mike Vick’s recent public birthday party, which anyone could attend.  Based on some of the reactions we’ve gotten, some of you don’t yet understand the nature of the risk Vick took, given his very unique circumstances.

Jordan Raanan of CSNPhilly.com explains the situation better than we have, ultimately calling Vick’s “indefensible” and suggesting that Vick has done enough to justify the Eagles getting rid of him.

“His fatal mistake wasn’t what he did at the party,” Raanan writes.  “It was being there in
the first place.  Those are exactly the type of scenes a
high-profile ex-convict is supposed to avoid.  Especially someone who was
given a second chance at a lucrative career — Vick is expected to make
$5.2 million this year — as long as he steers clear of trouble. . . .

“These were the kind of slip-ups Vick needed to avoid.  These are the
situations he wasn’t supposed to put himself in ever again after what
seemed like a life lesson he would never forget.  He was supposed to live
happily ever after in relative obscurity.  That doesn’t happen when
you’re throwing yourself an open-invite birthday party with 300-plus
attendees.”

Some of you have insisted that Vick did nothing wrong because he couldn’t control who chose to attend the party.  But that’s precisely why he shouldn’t have had a party whose attendees would be determined only by whether they paid the money for a ticket and complied with the dress code.

When Vick said all the right things last year upon returning to the league, many wondered whether he truly had changed, or whether he was saying what he thought he needed to say in order to get his NFL career back.  Though he apparently has stayed out of trouble, his decision to proceed with Thursday night’s party suggests that he possibly hasn’t changed (or that he has changed back), and that he’s still surrounding himself with people who can’t or won’t give him good advice that he’ll heed.

Thursday night’s events also have another potentially negative consequence for Vick.  It puts him back on the radar screen, and it gives the feds, the NFL, and the Eagles reason to start poking around, to see whether he fully has complied with the terms of his probation and reinstatement.

It’s like an IRS audit or an NCAA investigation.  They show up for one thing, and they end up nailing you for something else that they never would have known about but for the thing that got them there in the first place.

For Vick, no one knows what will happen in the coming days and weeks.  But no one would be talking about him right now if he merely had opted for a private birthday party attended only by persons with whom he’s permitted to associate — and whom he can trust not to bring a gun.

    Regardless of whether or not Vick was involved, the fact that there were people there who would even consider pulling a gun for any reason means that Vick should not have been there.
    Not that I care, I think Vick is a liar and doesn’t deserve to be in the NFL anyway.

    Who cares about Vick anymore?

  3. dldavidlong says: Jun 26, 2010 7:27 PM

    nothing will happen to mike vick over what took place at the party. he won’t get a parole violation and he won’t get cut by the eagles over it either. agree or disagree, cry all you want thats the bottom line. mike vick will be the backup QB for the eagles unless they trade him.

    Hate hate hate – Florio shut the hell up won’t you? It really get’s old…

  5. Brandon says: Jun 26, 2010 7:36 PM

    How is this his fault? he was having a B-Day party and a shooting happened. he was gone.. that’s like blaming a bar or club every time a shooting/Fight/Stabbing happens? Doesn’t make ANY Sense at all!!!!

  6. Xpensive Wino says: Jun 26, 2010 7:42 PM

    Not bring a gun? There wouldn’t be anyone there……..

  7. AcidSoda says: Jun 26, 2010 7:42 PM

    This guy was given a huge break in being allowed to play football again. The report states that Phillips arrived and got shot after Vick left, and I don’t see any fault really from his part except that the bad company he used to keep is still straggling around him. Just play dude. The NFL is full of gifted athletes that double as criminals, and who knows if that will ever change. Just play and perform, if you’re naughty and get caught, them’s the breaks if you’re bannished from the league (which is what I would’ve done w/ him in the first place) if you don’t, as long as you can perform at an optimal level, I don’t give a crap.

  8. TheRealARod says: Jun 26, 2010 7:44 PM

    Florio I see the point you are trying to make here, as I am sure many of the other readers do, but it still does not mean we will all agree with you. The fact that a millionaire wanted to have a big party for his birthday should not be enough for you to say that he has fallen back onto his old habbits. Remember Vick was not out of the league for substance abuse or anything like that. He made a terrible mistake which was getting involved in dog fighting. By now saying that he has not learned a lesson from that because he wanted to have a big party does not make any sense. Once again we will point out that he had a party, someone from the Bad Newz Kennel case showed up, Vick confronted him, and left. If anything it seems that he has learned because the old Michael Vick would have stayed and hung out with his buddy anyway. Give the man a break he served his time in the system and aside from now being at a club where somebody was shot he has done nothing wrong since he has been out. Lay off the guy.

  9. JimmySmith says: Jun 26, 2010 7:45 PM

    The Eagles should get rid of him for only one reason, he sucks. OK, being a punk and hanging with the wrong crowd gives you cover for getting rid of him but they should have never signed him in the first place.
    Let him go hang with Tony Dungy and see how Tony likes chillin with a dog killer. I believe in second chances but this guy is a sociopath and is in need of professional help. Paying him millions only enables his anti social behavior.

    Even after a rather detailed explanation I can’t believe there are posters who just don’t “get it”. The issue really isn’t about whether a crime was commiteed or not by Vick…..it’s all about the fact that he may have violated his parole AND violated the terms of reinstatement that Goodell laid out to him. Vick could be drinking milk while sitting with his mother but if there is another felon at the table….violation! If there is someone, anyone from his group of “hommies” that Goodell told him he could no longer associate with….violation! etc. etc. etc. If he is associating with someone who is packin’ heat…..violation! Vick’s probation and rules of reinstatement do not afford him the same freedoms and luxuries that you and I take for granted…….do you get it now!!!?????

  12. Big J says: Jun 26, 2010 7:54 PM

    He was going to make 5.2 million this year? The Eagles can only hope he gets thrown out of the league.

  13. bigmike79 says: Jun 26, 2010 8:00 PM

    @Xpensive Wino….You are exactly with that, and if also that is the case he shouldnt show up to Eagles game, I’ll bet money that a couple of there fans have guns in the car outside the stadium, it was just an unfortunate thing that happend.

  14. The Hogster says: Jun 26, 2010 8:00 PM

    Florio, Florio, Florio. Your hate is so thinly veiled we can see the veins in your neck.
    Is your problem that this was his Birthday Party??? Or should he just not go anywhere public??? Or should he just shine shoes for a living.
    If he were at a restaurant on any other day and the same thing happened, is that his fault too??? What gives Florio.
    You know you’re full of hate. Just come out and say it so we can respect you.

    “For Vick, no one knows what will happen in the coming days and weeks. But no one would be talking about him right now if he merely had opted for a private birthday party attended only by persons with whom he’s permitted to associate”
    Bullshit if it wasnt the slow time of the year as you would say or if your werent fishing for stories or if you had any creditability no one would be talking about this right now. But none of those things are going to change.
    You are a horrible righter and more bias then Michael Irvin. Vick had a birthday party big deal. If thats grounds for being cut or then why is year hero Ben Rapistburger still on the Steelers. He got suspended for 6 games and 2 weeks later was out golfing where there was alcohol and girls available for him to rape.
    Ben went golfing where the public and alcohol was involved. Luckily for him nothing happened there but what if something did happen there? What if someone got drunk and said something to Ben? And then Ben left and the guy got in a fight an hour later? Would you be saying Ben needs to be cut? No you wouldnt because he plays for the Steelers and hes white.
    Vick had a birthday part where some guy who wasnt with Vick acted like and idiot. Vick had nothing to do with the shooting and wasnt there when it happened. Also he left as soon as his co defendant showed up. That is exactly what a Parole officer tells you to do in those situations. You do not violate the second your in the same building as another felon. The violation comes into effect when you come into contact with the other offender and do not remove yourself for the situation. Vick over complied with his contract and rules of parole.
    There is no difference between what Ben did and Vick did. Now your argument isnt that Vick had anything to do with the shooting now its that he shouldnt have put himself in a position where that could have happened. Well if thats the case then you better start calling for Ben’s job too.
    Who are you kidding everyone sees through your new reasoning. This wasnt your point when you first wrote about this story. You were trying to lynch Vick and make it seem like he had a huge party with a bunch of thugs and was involved in the shooting of his co defendant. But then people called you out and proved you wrong and you started backpedaling. Now you have this bullshit ass excuse of why Vick was wrong to try to cover your own bias, racism, and bigotry.
    But your own bias is what will expose you. Your bias toward Ben and the Steelers will keep you from linking the 2 stories to strengthen your excuse. And by not doing that it exposes it for what it truly is. Back Pedaling.

    LOL….you haters are too easy….falling for the banana in a tailpipe…there will be no suspension and the Eagles wont be cutting him because of some AWM’s. LOL

    I called it when he got out of prison. Nothing might happen to him over this but the guy will never be able to stay out of trouble. i guarantee you he will end up back in prison for something stupid. Don’t get me wrong i dont want to see him end up in prison i hope he gets straight and leads a good life (or somebody puts him in a cage with a crazy pitbull either one is fine with me) but he is just to stupid to understand what he has to do to stay out of trouble. he has to keep his street cred up ya know.

    there was substance abuse one vick’s record.
    nice how the pusse posse keeps trying to pretend that a lot of stuff never happened.
    nevertheless, this is all likely in the hands of his parole officer.

  27. The RBM says: Jun 26, 2010 8:41 PM

    Its probably in Mike’s best interest to get cut and be a free agent anyway seeing as though he wont get the playing time he’s hoping for in Philadelphia. Sure he’d be losing a salary that another team would be reluctant to pay him, but if he agrees to a deal with a team with an unstable quarterback situation, it may pay off more for him in the end.
    Then there’s always the UFL that Im sure would be more than willing to pay Vick top dollar to be the face of their league. The league immediately gains some legitimacy as a result, and Mike gets the necessary reps he needs to show what he has left (if anything). With the impending lock-out, the UFL would jump at the opportunity.
    The Eagles realize this, so they more than likely will not cut him.

  29. Bob Cunningham says: Jun 26, 2010 8:45 PM

    He shouldn’t have been there, but I don’t think it’s a big enough slip-up to get rid of him. It is, in fact, only a minor slip-up.
    Plus, it looks like he at least tried to do the right thing in the end, and that has to be taken into consideration.

  30. BlondBlueDevils says: Jun 26, 2010 8:50 PM

    Florio and the rest of you “BlueEyeDevils”………….
    Need to get a life. You need to decide who’s side you are on….. The Human Race or The Animal Race.
    You are still upset because of some stupid dogs, which makes me seriously wonder if it came down to saving your son or your dog, if you would choose your dog’s life.
    You really need to stop spinning “other” writers columns and do some real “original” writing and earn what ever you make as a journalist and I use that word litely.
    You are not man enough to admit you jumped the gun, so you are now in spinning mode.
    You like feeding to the small and narrow minded readers, a.k.a. “BlueEyeDevils”.
    The bottomline is: You don’t work for the Eagles – get over it.
    Now one could judge you for being a pro animal lover and a non human lover.
    You are a disgrace!

  35. redsquare says: Jun 26, 2010 9:00 PM

    And Vick wonders why no team wants to entrust their franchise to him. Why not a single team pursued him in the offseason, preferring instead to pick young guys in the draft, pick up older QBs from other teams, or just sit tight with mediocre QBs.
    The message is clear: no one wants this guy, and if anyone wanted or trusted him, they’d have picked him up from the Eagles. Does anyone really believe the Eagles want to pay a backup QB $5 million, and that was their plan all along?
    So now they’re stuck with what seems like a plan gone wrong. And Vick just keeps underscoring why no one buys the crap he’s selling. Anyone with a whiff of sense knew he was bad news, and a chronic liar, long before this.
    So now he’s an aging, rusty, past-his-prime athlete who’s three years out of a starting role, with fresh new evidence that he hasn’t cleaned up his act or become what he promised he’d be. Which multi-billion-dollar organization is going to take a chance on that now? Enjoy your last season, Vick. Keep that bench warm for Kolb, okay?

  36. jibfest says: Jun 26, 2010 9:04 PM

    The Eagles either have to stand by him or cut him and go after the money. It all falls on the hands of Goodell.

    blah blah blah, he wasn’t there when the guy got shot. no one from the bad newz kennel was there! all lies $100 says if we find a videotape of this place you’ll see Vick on Camera when the shooting took place,and yes his cousin from the kennel operation was there! a person he is not to associate with. oh i’m sorry it’s his cousin so it’s ok to see him. NO you are discouraged from associating with anyone from that operation ,cousin or not!
    This dude is a moron plain and simple ,he can’t even abide by the courts rules and advice that would keep him out of trouble, crystal ball i see Mike Vick in prison in 2-3 years.

  40. ToledoLions says: Jun 26, 2010 9:34 PM

    The one thing you fail to realize Florio, is that the people defending Vick in this situation lack the brain cells and common sense to realize that there is a problem with the situation. Vick put himself into, regardless of who shot the guy. Jordan Raanan said it perfectly, and the fact is, any ex-convict still on probation would be stupid to put themselves in a situation where there is alcohol, probably drugs, and in a club where there is always potential for fights. Let alone a high profile ex-convict like Vick. It was a stupid thing for him to do, whether these morons blindly defending him want to believe it or not.

    Brandon,
    It’s called accountability, a concept you clearly have no clue about. That’s why this is his fault. This wasn’t the kind of birthday party you and I would have where a few friends might come over and chill.
    He needs to not put himself in this situation in the first place. Period. And he needs to start being accountable for his decisions. He decided to be at some blow-out party. He decided to be put in a position where someone else’s stupidity can jeopardize his career.
    This isn’t rocket science. It’s common sense. But he has none. And clearly you don’t either.
    Choices have consequences. A concept a lot of people seem to have trouble with. Society today wants to blame everyone else for their problems. Well, who decided to be at that party? Who decided to have these kinds of people as friends anyway (guys who bring guns – for what? self defence?)

  44. lboogie25 says: Jun 26, 2010 9:45 PM

    What?? Not having a party after doing a bid? You mean he should let all that street cred go to waste and hang out at home?
    The Ego’s on most athletes is too large to have parties at home or in a controlled environment. They need to be worshiped and fawned over so they go to clubs, strip clubs and the like. Sounds good, but it’ll never happen.

  45. hotchick says: Jun 26, 2010 9:47 PM

    First of all anyone who uses the angle “he made a mistake” should automatically see his opinion reduced to meaningless. You do not accidently or non purposefully RUN a dog fighting ring. It was not a mistake. It was a direct and repeated CHOICE. One he new was against the law.
    Next, if you are on probation you control your surroundings. A private party does that. Going to a club where “someone happens to get shot after you leave” does not. I mean sure I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve gone out and someone I knew was shot later in the night at that very place. (I mean haven’t we all?) But I’m not on probation so I dont need to worry about it. Vick does. Like it or not Vick does.
    I’m all for Vick being off the hook if he made the mistake of being the one who told Phillips to leave. But the fact the party was not controlled by invitation only kills that escape angle for him.
    The rule is you ar eon probation you do everything possible to make sure you do not come in contact with the people you are told not to have contact. Vick FAILED to do that. A private party is a clear attempt to control your surroundings. This shing dig was not.
    Cut Him. Jail him

  46. breeze says: Jun 26, 2010 9:57 PM

    Florio,you must really hate Michael Vick. Athletes and Rappers do promotions at clubs all the time. The club sends out fliers saying someone famous is having a birthday and will be at the,that indiviual usually shows up for about 20 minutes and sits in the V.I.P. section,then hauls ass. Basically you’re trying to get people to come to your club. The club-goer gets to say they saw somebody famous. The star gets paid an appearance fee. Paris Hilton does it all the time. Until you got Michael Vick firing the gun,post another boring Bret Favre story. I heard if Ghana wins the World Cup, he’s coming back. Go Ghana!

  47. Schnitzel says: Jun 26, 2010 9:59 PM

    Michael Vick is a knucklehead. He threw the party.
    His guest was his friend who ran the Bad News Kennels. He does not have to have done anything criminal to be suspended. He is going to see the Commissioner. He only has to show the NFL in a bad light. Party for 300 where someone is shot. I would say that puts the NFL in a bad light.

  48. inmotion2207 says: Jun 26, 2010 10:02 PM

    Florio SHUT THE F*@! UP ALREADY- Vick did nothing wrong and the eagles won’t trade him and the commissioner won’t suspend him. Go find something else to write about

  49. MK1978 says: Jun 26, 2010 10:08 PM

    Florio you sound ridiculous. The only people seeing “fault” in the fact that an uninvited guest showed up to this party are the people who already hated Vick. I’m sure you’d love for all parolees to live a limited lifestyle but the reality is the man has served his time and regardless of how much you and others may hate that he’s ENTITLED to throw a birthday party at a public facility. The fact that a former co-defendant that he is supposed to (and to our knowledge has) avoided COULD show up is in no way, shape, or form something worthy of blame or guilt. People trying to suggest such sound ridiculous for trying to justify it. The bottom line is your jaded view of the man b/c of his past is not going to impugn guilt upon him for someone showing up to his party unannounced and this doesn’t open the door for the Eagles to get rid of him as much as some of you who hate the man would like to believe it would. The man got a second chance and he’s allowed to live his life…get over it.

  50. TexasBubba says: Jun 26, 2010 10:29 PM

    Thanks, Mike. The knuckleheads here will never get it. Good piece by Mr Raanan, and you summed up the crux of this issue precisely. Personally, I did not believe Vick’s remorse last year for one minute, and I still don’t. It makes the Eagles look like fools. Management, the coaches, and also the players who voted him that Ed Block Courage Award.
    You know the old cliche’. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me … eh….You can’t get fooled again. (thanks dubya)

    P.S Florio relax alittle man and breathe easy! In some of your articles you sound suspect. Chill oldhead!!!

  56. pigsty says: Jun 26, 2010 11:32 PM

    But no one would be talking about him right now if he merely had opted for a private birthday party attended only by persons with whom he’s permitted to associate — and whom he can trust not to bring a gun.
    According to the terms of his probation, Vick is specifically prohibited from any association with felons. Phillips — the shooting vic and Vick’s former partner — is a felon.
    Moreover, a local columnist says witnesses claimed the shooting resulted from a squabble between Vick and/or his party and Phillips over “cake”. So it almost doesn’t matter whether Vick was present during the shooting or left the party before the shooting. If the shooting resulted from any interaction between Vick and Phillips, Vick is in trouble.
    Florio’s take isn’t unreasonable.
    Vick’s lack of judgement got him into dog fighting. An unscreened all-comers birthday party at a nightclub where alcohol was served and Vick confirmed present until 2 a.m. (the shooting reportedly occurred at 2:10 a.m.) shows a similar lack of judgment for a convicted felon on probation.

  57. Dewsweeper says: Jun 26, 2010 11:33 PM

    As Cool Hand Luke once stated, “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
    Look, it should be obvious to even the most casual observer that Mr. Vick is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and his grasp of the concept of discretion is a tenuous D- at best, but really, there are no dead dogs, no teary-eyed co-ed’s with accusations of being raped in the mensroom stall. No harm. No Foul.
    I do have one burning question. Do white guys ever get invited to All White Parties?

    Lay off the guy indeed. Unless it’s proven he has done something (else) wrong, this is just a fluff story for a few days to pass the time kicking a dead horse. Eagles would be foolish to cut him for this.
    And… (gotta play the devil’s advocate as long as he is MY backup qb)… going to a club for his birthday where anyone can get in if they pay the price and adhere to the dress code, last I checked, wasn’t illegal, immoral, wrong, or anything else you want to call it. If it were me, sure, I’d be doing nothing but staying home in the playbook and laying low. If it were me, I’d be no-where near a party like that. But that’s me. Maybe that’s you. That doesn’t mean Mike has to be like us. He should, sure, cuz it’d be wise to. But, hey, Mike Vick is a free man (even if only because the penalty for his crimes wasn’t 15-20years like it should’ve been). If he wasn’t there during the b.s., he wasn’t there. If he turns out to have been involved in some way, release the hounds. But you’re wrong to do it before; for Mike Vick, or for Ghandi. Doesn’t matter who.

    “For Vick, no one knows what will happen in the coming days and weeks. But no one would be talking about him right now if he merely had opted for a private birthday party attended only by persons with whom he’s permitted to associate”
    Bullshit if it wasnt the slow time of the year as you would say or if your werent fishing for stories or if you had any creditability no one would be talking about this right now. But none of those things are going to change.
    You are a horrible righter and more bias then Michael Irvin. Vick had a birthday party big deal. If thats grounds for being cut or then why is year hero Ben Rapistburger still on the Steelers. He got suspended for 6 games and 2 weeks later was out golfing where there was alcohol and girls available for him to rape.
    Ben went golfing where the public and alcohol was involved. Luckily for him nothing happened there but what if something did happen there? What if someone got drunk and said something to Ben? And then Ben left and the guy got in a fight an hour later? Would you be saying Ben needs to be cut? No you wouldnt because he plays for the Steelers and hes white
    *******************************************
    I’m not sticking up for him, but unless you live underneath a rock, you know that Roethlisberger was neither tried nor convicted for anything (regardless of whether that outcome was justified or not, it is what it is). To our knowledge at this point in time, Ben also has not lied to the commissioner or other league officials regarding his situation. Thus, Roethlisberger has neither the legal baggage nor the obligation (to the NFL) hanging over him that Vick does. You could easily argue that both Vick and Roethlisberger are fools, in their own ways. Beyond that, however, there’s no basis for comparison given the present circumstances.

  62. NationalFelonLeague.com © says: Jun 27, 2010 12:11 AM

    Currently there is a only handful of convicted felons playing in the NFL.
    These individuals cannot vote, own a firearm, serve on a jury, obtain a CDL or work in a majority of businesses, but the NFL is willing to employ them and let them parade around on national TV. Commissioner Goodell has increased punishment and has added a Personal Conduct Policy, but this does not go far enough.
    During the 2009 NFL season, an incredible 21 percent of the players had arrest records, although only a few were repeat offenders.
    Contact the NFL and tell them to implement a permanent ban for anyone convicted of a felony and strengthen punishment for repeat offenders, up to a permanent ban.
    Google “Pacman Jones” if you would like an example of a “repeat offender”.
    The crime rate in the NFL has dropped under the new Personal Conduct Policy. By threatening the possibility of a permanent ban for convicted felons or repeat offenders the NFL will send a clear message that they do hold a higher standard.
    Commisioner Goodell said:
    “It’s my responsibility to protect our reputation and our integrity. That’s what the personal conduct policy is; we all have to be held to a higher standard.
    “First, as a league, we rely on our credibility for acceptance with our public,” Goodell said. “The integrity of the game and people participating in it is a critical element.
    “Second, protection of our brand. It reflects poorly on our brand.
    “That’s why everyone came together to strengthen our policy years ago to make certain we keep that high standard.”
    Why does the NFL claim a higher standard while letting convicted felons hide behind the NFL shield?
    It is time to stop allowing Felons to rehab their image in the NFL. Institute a lifetime ban from the NFL for anyone who is convicted of a felony. Repeat criminal offenders also need to be considered for a lifetime ban.
    Email the NFL PR department with this message and tell them enough is enough.

    Ben was neither tried nor convicted and you are correct. SO. Was Tiger tried or convicted? How about Bill Clinton? Were they BOTH still guilty? How many times have you went over the speed limit and not been cited? Does that mean you weren’t speeding? NO IT DOESN’T. You mean to tell us all that you have been punished for EVERY thing you have done wrong? Come on bro. Just because Ben was not tried and convicted DOES NOT mean he is innocent.
    Woman says “LT raped me” the cops immediately go to his room and arrest him. Girl says “Ben raped me” the cops question him and let him go. Please EXPLAIN TO ME the difference between the two circumstances.
    Roethlisberger has more baggage than Vick hanging over his head. Sorry. He was currently being sued for rape while allegations of another one surfaced. WHO THE HELL HAS TWO RAPE ALLEGATIONS AT ONCE? I dont know what rock you were under but dog fighting is NOT as serious as RAPE. Now most states are under the SRA (Sentence Reform Act) but some are under the old sentencing guidlines. Go to any state and SEE which crime carries the biggest sentence. I GUARANTEE YOU IT WILL BE RAPE SIR. You can even go to the Bible, The Quran, The Torah, The Book Of Mormon or whatever Holy Book you choose and see what God says about Rape and then see what he says the penalty is for harming animals. Of course He despises the harming of innocent animalsbut NOT as much as He despises the RAPIST.
    Now you may believe that Ben is innocent but I do not. Just because a guy is not CONVICTED does NOT mean they did no crime. JUST ASK OJ.

    5. He will play the race card and claim white people hate vick because he is a black athlete.
    6. He will ignore the fact that maybe, just MAYBE, people (white & black) hate Vick because he tortured dogs, lied to the FBI, lied to the commish, stole a Rolex, tried to bring his stash of pot on a plane and got busted, smoked pot while awaiting his trail for dog torture, never served a single day in jail for the dog torturing only gambling, and knowingly gave women herpes Ron Mexico style.

  67. ICDogg says: Jun 27, 2010 1:39 AM

    While I don’t disagree with the idea that Vick has some fault in this situation, it is a stretch to make as much out of it as some of you are making.
    He’ll have to explain what happened to the probation officer, and that will probably not involve any behavior specifically banned by the terms of his supervised release (those terms are easily located online if you’re interested) that could have been avoided at the time (once the codefendant showed up). Vick will get a verbal smackdown and some strong advice on how to avoid such potential situations in the future (i.e., don’t have public parties), but it’s unlikely it will be taken any further.

    It’s this whole argument that first of all, players can prevent things happening by simply not being public figures or doing anything at all in public, and secondly that footballers are responsible for any and all actions that occur around them because they are paid a lot of money and treated like role models that sort of irks me.
    Look, whether you or me like it or not, these weird parties are commonplace now. They don’t actually sound much fun to me, but that’s what people do. If Vick was not meant to be at a party like this, why wasn’t it written into his contract? Why wasn’t it written into the terms of his parole?
    This is the issue I have – that after the fact, people are very quick to say that a player shouldn’t have put himself in a certain situation. Sometimes that’s true, but a guy celebrating his birthday with a public party? You can’t always say that it’s clear cut.
    Besides which, I feel like you actively hawking around players on a crusade to get them sacked on a technicality doesn’t speak volumes for your personal values does it?

  72. delgriffth says: Jun 27, 2010 7:22 AM

    Lets be real. Mike Vick got paid to show up at a birthday day party in his honor. A co-defendant, a man who ratted Vick out for a lesser prison sentence, gets shot while leaving the party. Whether or not Vick shot the man, which i highly doubt he did, means nothing. Vick used piss poor judgement. When youre a parolee you cant use piss poor judgement. The NFL, or his parole officer, must act at this point. Vick left them no choice.

    If you are saying that Mike Vick deserves a flogging by the commissioner for having an ‘all white’ party in celebration of his 30th birthday, I’ll agree. Bad Michael Vick! (Slaps wrist) But if you are saying that Vick should be in trouble for being in close proximity with Quantis Phillips then you are wrong. How about Phillips should be in trouble for being in the presence of Vick.
    I’m sure “Q” as they call him in the hood, made the same agreements with the FEDS. He should not have any contact with his co-defendants as well. Anyone who’s smart enough to breath oxygen can see that Q sought to be in the presence of Vick. So it should be Q who’s the one that’s in trouble.

    This really has nothing to do with Vick. Last year you guys were saying he should have been cut for having a Malibu and pineapple drink. The reality is when he came out of prison everyone wanted to hate him and thought it would have been easy. But, he took that away from everyone because he was obviously a changed person. Only someone that lived in Atlanta at the height of Vick’s stardom would understand that. (mind you I have never been an ATL Falcons fan and was highly critical of Vick while he was playing.) He can’t be held accountable for other people actions. As long as he continues to stay out of trouble he should just be left alone. He’s a backup in the NFL. This is more reflective of white people who are unwilling or unable to view things from a different perspective. We get it already you hate the fact that a black guy was made an example out of, spent 2 years in jail, and came out making $5M. That’s the way the world works get over it!

    Since at Kerney’s party it was private and at his house vs Vick’s at a public venue, shouldn’t Kerney be held more accountable since he controlled the environment.
    So “BlueEyeDevils” what’s up?

    Guys forget your anger, you can’t change the fact that Brady, Manning, Favre, Brees, Montana, Marino, etc, etc didn’t earn the highest contract in NFL HISTORY.

It’s funny how people with so much hatred for the man come in and try to suggest that all someone has to do is SHOW UP at a place where someone on parole who is not supposed to be stay away from them is located and it’s a parole violation. I refuse to believe that there are that many individuals who are that naive or ignorant to think the system works like that. If that was the case do you realize how many people holding grudges would just seek out someone they wanted to put in hot water and SHOW UP there?
    Like I said, the only ones claiming this is Vick’s fault are the ones who are never going to forgive him for the dogfighting. The man has turned over a new leaf and from all reports he did everything he was supposed to do that night…GET OVER IT!

    Florio,you must really hate Michael Vick. Athletes and Rappers do promotions at clubs all the time. The club sends out fliers saying someone famous is having a birthday and will be at the,that indiviual usually shows up for about 20 minutes and sits in the V.I.P. section,then hauls ass. Basically you’re trying to get people to come to your club. The club-goer gets to say they saw somebody famous. The star gets paid an appearance fee. Paris Hilton does it all the time. Until you got Michael Vick firing the gun,post another boring Bret Favre story. I heard if Ghana wins the World Cup, he’s coming back. Go Ghana!
    —Breezer, when Paris Hilton makes an appearance, people don’t end up shot. Also the person who was shot was a co-defendant in the dog fighting ring. Paris Hilton would be smart enough not to set herself up like that. Maybe your boy should start hanging out with her, he could learn something about intelligence.

    –Andy Reid’s belt (I really like the name) but it takes no courage to say an unproven quarterback won’t succeed.
    People said the same.exact.thing about A. Rodgers in Green Bay. What Kolb has going for him is he gets rid of the ball quick, (True West Coast) has a great rapport with Celek, the younger playes gravitated towards Kolb more than McNabb in 2009 (as reported by Howard Eskin, Eagles Schill on 610 WIP). Plus he threw for 300 yards in his first two starts, and he has all of summer camp to take first team snaps.
    I agree the Eagles need to be concerned about Kolb POSSIBLY being a flop, but they wouldn’t have made the move if they weren’t confident. Mike Kafka is the 3rd QB now. Kafka is a rookie from Northwestern. So if Vick gets cut or something then they need a servicable number two. Unfortunately the free agent market for QB’s isn’t good. The Eagles QB situation COULD get ugly, but I like Kolb to do well this season. We will see.

    Actually it’s a solid analogy. As much as you may hate “felons”, being on parole doesn’t mean the law can hold them to some ridiculously unreasonable standard. Please make me understand (since you seem to think you have legal expertise) how him being a “felon” somehow means he should be able to control things out of his control anymore than people who aren’t felons. It’s really not rocket science and all the calls for Vick to get in trouble (which he won’t) are extremely transparent. It’s not really about his actions because once again…from all accounts he threw a party and an uninvited guest showed up. No fault there regardless how many of you closet racists, doglovers, etc. would like it to be.
    Once again…the man served his time…let it go.

    Remember, a parolee doesn’t have to abode by these “rules”…
    they can always stay in jail.

    The Vick backers are some really SMRT people…
    “It really get’s old…”
    “The fact that a millionaire wanted to have a big party for his birthday should not be enough for you to say that he has fallen back onto his old habbits.”
    “Isn’t it the responsibility of the bar to ensure no weapons enter their establishment?”
    “You are a horrible righter and more bias then Michael Irvin.”
    “florio
    You are as bad as an old women”
    ” earn what ever you make as a journalist and I use that word litely.”
    ” he’s ENTITLED to throw a birthday party at a public facility. The fact that a former co-defendant that he is supposed to (and to our knowledge has) avoided COULD show up is in no way, shape, or form something worthy of blame or guilt.”
    “Mr. Florio it is ashame how bad you want this man out of the leauge. Although I understand what your are saying I really dont think”
    “Stop trying to throw Black Men in jail for stupid stuff, because I am begining to think y’all, including Florio, or borderline racists.”
    ” I feel like you actively hawking around players on a crusade to get them sacked on a technicality”
    “The man has turned over a new leaf and from all reports he did everything he was supposed to do” (Uh, yeah, dumbass, except for THIS report).
    And let’s tip our caps to the most BRILLIANT response:

    You are still upset because of some stupid dogs, which makes me seriously wonder if it came down to saving your son or your dog, if you would choose your dog’s life.
    —————– ——————– ——————– ——————– ——————– —–
    If it came down to saving my son’s life or my dog’s life, I’d save my son.
    Now if it came down to saving YOUR son’s life or your dog’s, I’d save your dog’s.

    Hmmmm.. Let me see here. Last February I turned 56 years old. My wife and three children were there to celebrate with me as a family. I remember cake and a few nice gifts, and a couple of phone calls from siblings who live out of state. However there were no guns or anyone showing up with a gun. No doubt due to the fact that I don’t even know 300 people.
    Afterwards my wife and I went to a movie so as to have some time to ourselves. As far as I know no one in the audience was “carrying” either.
    As a matter of fact the last time I had anything to do with a gun/weapon was just before my discharge from the Army when I had to clean my M-16A-1 for the very last time before turning it in for good. That was in 1978.
    Anyway, I had a very nice birthday with my family and a few other people I care about.
    This must seem very, very boring.
    Did I mention there was cake?

    Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy with this poster’s comment? This site truly is comedy gold.
    BTW: Vick sucks. When he is finally cut, his 32 snaps a season won’t be missed by anyone except his creditors and some ghetto-dwelling trash who still look up to him as some kind of hero.
    End of Story.

    Well, it should be stated that Ebonics don’t translate very well to English. If the dopes that authored the quotes you posted had finished high school, they would be aware of this.

    If Vick had to have his peeps come to his party without guns, then no one would have shown up, hence no party.
    No peeps, no party. No guns, no peeps. Only a dumbass of epic proportions like Vick could fail to see the logic here.

    Question: Who is more ignorant than Mike Vick pissing away 130 million?
    Answer: PFT serial poster blondbluedevil and his race baiting.
    Seriously, ban his loser ass from this website and keep this about football discussions and not racist propaganda.

    I hate to break it to everyone but BlueBlondeDevil is white and he is just trolling.
