Mike Vick issues eight-word statement regarding birthday shooting

Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, who initially was cleared of responsibility for the shooting of dogfighting codefendant Quanis Phillips at Vick’s 30th birthday party and now has lost his “no interest” status, has issued a statement professing his innocence.

I had nothing to do with the incident,” Vick said, per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Of course, Vick said the same thing once a dog farm was discovered on his property in rural Virginia.

His far more significant problem continues to be the potential probation violation arising from any association with Phillips or any other convicted felon.

UPDATE:  We misinterpreted McLane’s tweet.  There was more to the statement, but the gist of it is consistent with the eight words quoted above.  “On June 25, 2010 I attended a birthday party held in my honor at The
Guadalajara’s Restaurant in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  After I left the
event, I learned that a man was shot outside the restaurant.  I want to
assure everyone that I had nothing to do with that incident.  I left the
restaurant prior to it occurring and did not witness what happened.  Following the incident, I reported it to the Philadelphia Eagles and to
representatives of Commissioner Roger Goodell of the NFL.  In addition, I
cooperated with and answered any and all questions from Law Enforcement
officials investigating this matter.  My statements, from the beginning,
explained that I was not there at the time of the shooting and had no
knowledge of the events surrounding it.  I have been completely truthful
and fully cooperative from the very beginning and will continue to
cooperate with Law Enforcement and the NFL as this investigation
continues.”

    Lies, lies, lies…yeah. The gonna get you!

  2. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 8:10 PM

    Why don’t you post the rest of the Police statement that shows they won’t name him anything because they are sick of the media bugging them to do so and nothing has changed.
    stop playing word games and trying to make a story out of nothing

    “Of course, Vick said the same thing once a dog farm was discovered on his property in rural Virginia.”
    wow florio, you must really hate this guy. Everytime I come on here you are insinuating something about vick. Let the police do their job and you do yours.

  4. truecowboyfan says: Jul 1, 2010 8:13 PM

    Why are you having a party at a dance club when YOU HAVE A HUGE TARGET ON YOUR BACK!!! Idiot!!! I never understood why grown men have birthday parties anyway… what are you 12 years old???
    And don’t give me that crap of he should still have a life…. there’s plenty of stuff he can be doing that does not include Rap music, thugs, alcohol, and birthday cake… He should be suspended again just for being an idiot…

  5. contract says: Jul 1, 2010 8:13 PM

    “I did not engage in gun violence with that man … Quanis Phillips.”
    When the hell did attempted murder become an “incident”?

  6. The Hogster says: Jul 1, 2010 8:14 PM

    Mike – you keep reporting on the potential probation violation. I know you’re a social outcast, but being in the same public place is not “associating.”
    Anyway, you will soon see that you’re not powerful enough to push Vick back into prison, I know you believe you are – you aren’t.

  7. Eat@Joes says: Jul 1, 2010 8:14 PM

    He also did not have sexual relations with that woman.

  8. timegambit says: Jul 1, 2010 8:15 PM

    Yep, eight.

  9. Enrgy2Burn says: Jul 1, 2010 8:17 PM

    Oh, well I know I feel better. Now we can all just forget about the whole thing. Mike said he had nothing to do with it and why would he lie?!?
    Can’t wait for JonEvans to come in with ‘see, i am 100% right because Vick saying he had nothing to do with it is a fact and i base things on facts because i’m 100% right!’

  10. SirSuperSouthern says: Jul 1, 2010 8:18 PM

    He had “nothing” to do with the incident? What an outrageous lie! He might not have pulled the trigger but the incident only occured because of him. Saying he had “nothing to do with it” is laughable…

  11. rjgreen3 says: Jul 1, 2010 8:20 PM

    i was one of the few people who supported this young man and i know i shouldn’t rush to judgement; but when does the light come on and he makes better decisions. If you want to have a birthday party fine, it doesn’t have to be advertised on a social networking page…….this was and is all about ego…….

  12. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 8:20 PM

    Can’t wait for JonEvans to come in with ‘see, i am 100% right because Vick saying he had nothing to do with it is a fact and i base things on facts because i’m 100% right!’========================
    I haven’t gone by anything Vick has said. /boggle I worked with common sense, reality, logic, and what physical evidence has shown. anyway /boggle as Florio does, stop trying to spin things to fit your conclusions.

  13. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 8:22 PM

    Trucecowboyfan.. your thin grasp on reality is really starting to show. So.. someone should be suspended and sent back to jail or simply.. is of bad moral character because they listen to “Rap music” haha.. oh man you people crack me up.

  14. Hayward G says: Jul 1, 2010 8:22 PM

    Guilty

  15. ChupameArpaio says: Jul 1, 2010 8:23 PM

    By the end of the pre-season Vick will be out of the league. And Philly’s QB depth chart will consist of a guy who had one good game in the NFL and a rookie from Northwestern that had one good year in college.
    So much for this year Philly.

  16. The Hogster says: Jul 1, 2010 8:23 PM

    Vick left THREE MINUTES earlier to go smoke WEED with CHRIS SIMMS.
    There he has an alibi.

  17. BigTony300 says: Jul 1, 2010 8:24 PM

    Have we had enough of this guy already? Say what you want, he was and average NFL QB on a good day. The guy is a fast QB….big deal. He is an idiot who has thrown away an opportunity that most men would kill for and he is killing dogs for amusement.
    He has already lied about this shooting. Told police he left the scene a half hour prior to incident and he is on surveillance video leaving the scene 3 minutes prior….I guess they don’t teach math at Virginia Tech. This guy is a waste of human resources and does not deserve to be a McDonald’s fry cook, much less and NFL Player.

  18. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 8:25 PM

    Sirsupersouthern – He had “nothing” to do with the incident? What an outrageous lie! He might not have pulled the trigger but the incident only occured because of him. Saying he had “nothing to do with it” is laughable… =======================
    How do you figure it happened only because of him? Phillips doesn’t have issues with other people there? out of the 300+ individuals around no one else could have had a problem with one another? /boggle You continue to make these conclusions with no supporting fact outside of speculation because Vick is Vick.

  19. WingT says: Jul 1, 2010 8:25 PM

    Time will tell if he had anything to do with it.
    He has no room for error here and he knows it.
    If his NFL days are over then he is over and he knows it.
    He’s backed into a big corner. Doesn’t matter what he says now, what matters will be the results of the police investigation. With the Feds probably involved we can all be assured that there will be a relentless investigation that will either clear him or put him away.
    Vegas should lay odds on this one, lol

  20. Brat Favre says: Jul 1, 2010 8:27 PM

    For the last time, he wasn’t having a birthday party, he was having a birfday party! And besides, who doesn’t shoot people at their birfday parties?

  21. BigTony300 says: Jul 1, 2010 8:29 PM

    Jon Evans……
    Your a moron. Making an incident out of “NOTHING”. A man was almost killed by a gunshot…nice to see you have such a high regard for life.

  22. Bob Nelson says: Jul 1, 2010 8:33 PM

    “I dindonuthin” is heard a dozen times on just one episode of COPS.
    Vick claims “I din do nuthin”
    He never used the name Ron Mexico,
    he never spread herpes,
    he never smoked marijuana,
    he didn’t have that fake water bottle,
    he didn’t have anything to do with what went on at his house when they went there on drug search warrant,
    he knew nothing about dog fighting when that evidence was found during the search warrant,
    he didn’t lie to the commissioner,
    he didn’t lie to Mr. Blank,
    he didn’t give the finger to paying customers,
    he never filed for bankruptcy,
    he dindonuthin.

    I wouldn’t believe the Dawgkilla if he told me the sun came up in the east this morning.

  24. rmm9090 says: Jul 1, 2010 8:35 PM

    Mike Convick, aka Ron Mexico, aka world’s biggest dumbass is just one click (handgun that is) away from having his sorry lying ass back in the joint where he belongs. If not this time, then very very soon. All that hood rat shit is gonna keep buidling ’till he blows (literaly). I’ve got a C note that says he won’t make it to the end of next season. Any takers, starting with you, Dungy?

  25. BigTony300 says: Jul 1, 2010 8:36 PM

    Lie down with dogs and wake up with fleas, simple as that. Vick was given the second chance of a lifetime, so at what point did he think it would be a good idea to go to a birthday party at one in the morning at a club full of all his dog fighting thug buddies??? This guy does not deserve to even attend NFL games much less play in them.

  26. Dogsweat says: Jul 1, 2010 8:37 PM

    Vick, here is what your statement is worth:

    Jon Evans……
    Your a moron. Making an incident out of “NOTHING”. A man was almost killed by a gunshot…nice to see you have such a high regard for life.
    ==============
    I’m a Moron however you just went and spun everything that has been going on into something else.
    Everything I’ve posted for 3 days points to Making a case against VICK out of nothing. Spare me your illogical bull. Also to comment on the “almost killed” part… from what we all know it wasn’t even close to anything fatal but thats besides the point. Go eat your sherbert and watch x-files.

  29. truecowboyfan says: Jul 1, 2010 8:41 PM

    It looks like Mr. Jon Evans has a soft spot for the dog killer… that’s what’s starting to show… and for you to stick up for a grown man making TERRIBLE decisions is embarrassing…

  30. JP says: Jul 1, 2010 8:44 PM

    1. One of the conditions of Vick’s parole was that he was forbidden from associating with any felons or any of the people involved in the whole dogfighting scheme.
    2. Someone (Phillips) who fits both of those conditions (a convicted felon, and specially linked to the Vick dogfighting case) was at Vick’s birthday party “all night long” (as Marcus Vick has stated publicly).
    3. That’s a parole violation. Vick is going back to prison.
    This was Vick’s PRIVATE birthday party. No one got in without getting by Vick’s people. Ultimately Michael Vick is responsible for the people who come to his own party. Phillips was there all night. Nobody kicked him out. That’s “associating,” plain and simple.
    It sounds odd, but the fact that this SAME guy also happens to get shot just minutes after 2 cars’ worth of Vicks cronies leave the club is suspicious, but in the end even if Vick is 100% cleared of any wrongdoing for that, he will not avoid jail because of the parole issue.

    An 8 word statement. Well, one of them was a word you can say on T.V., at least.

    M. Vick said, “I did not have sex with that dude”
    what a wasted life the vick brothers have lived. had the world by the ass, not once but twice….crucify him Goodell.

  36. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 9:10 PM

    JP says: you could not be further than wrong. You have aboslutely no understanding of the word “associate” in a legal text and a parole Officer/analyst hgas already stated they see no reason to believe he violated his parole. Him being there is NOT a parole violation. please get that non sense out of your head.
    ====
    This was Vick’s PRIVATE birthday party. No one got in without getting by Vick’s people. Ultimately Michael Vick is responsible for the people who come to his own party. Phillips was there all night. Nobody kicked him out. That’s “associating,” plain and simple.
    ======
    it was open to the public, it was never private, where do you get this non sense?
    =========he will not avoid jail because of the parole issue.
    ==============
    How much of your life earnings/possesions would you like to bet on that.
    As I stated, you are already COMPLETELY wrong with your statements hahahahaha… the fact that you base “associating” as being in the same building is wrong.
    heres a tip
    Talking to Vick is not associating.
    Going into the club is in no way Vick violating his parole.
    Vick getting hit with pie (supposedly) and doing nothing is not violating his parole.
    Again, a parole officer/analyst has already stated that they see aboslutely NO REASON to believe he violated his parole. If you are going to make these remarks, you should educate yourself on the matter.

  37. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 9:13 PM

    Actually with everyone supposedly 100% positive he has violated his parole and he caused the shooting or did it himself… maby i can start making a profit off of it. Anyone care to put some wagers up? I’ll put up everything I own. haha oh man this is hilarious…. I really tried to defend most of the country from remarks pointing to stupidity and ignorance but… you guys just continue to reinforce the fact you are stupid and uninformed.

  39. famucancer says: Jul 1, 2010 9:17 PM

    JP, what are you going to do when Mike Vick reports to Eagles training camp on the first day and is there everyday and playing all season and the next and so on? Are you going to then holler he got some imaginery pass? LMAO!
    Ummm, dont you clowns know that Vick’s federal probation officer has to ok his travel plans and also ok any promotional events and appearances local or otherwise? Dont you know his PO ok’d the party itself and as it was public, has the common sense to know that Vick was not responsible for who came in or out? You think Vick’s been hosting all these very publicized parties from Texas to VA without the PO’s approval? LOL!
    Now dont get mad when Goodell gives that canned speech in a week or so where he concludes no action will be taken – but he’ll throw you a bone and say something to the effect of no more errors, or zero tolerance or something like that. LOL

  40. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 9:22 PM

    How come you don’t post the whole transcript of the police? or the new statements regarding the situation?
    ====
    Less than a week after Virginia Beach police said that he wasn’t a “person of interest” in the shooting, they marginally altered their classification of Vick on Thursday. Asked if investigators have ruled out Vick as a suspect, spokesman Adam Bernstein replied, “We have not ruled out anyone.”
    Bernstein made it clear, however, that police have no suspects and aren’t close to making any arrests.=========
    Oh, I have plenty more.

    I find it utterly amazing that our society finds any gun situation as less than horrific.

    Has life become that meaningless to so many?
    Go to church, volunteer at the homeless shelter, help out as your local assisted living, donate some blood man. Damn!

  43. Devoe1129 says: Jul 1, 2010 9:33 PM

    “I had nothing to do with the incident,” Vick said, per Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
    No moron. It happened at you B-Day party and you were in an altercation with the victim, and I use that loosely, moments before he gets shot. I doubt he was going to get shot if you weren’t there that night. Donovan Mcnab seemed to avoid all these types of situations i while on the same teams, shut up about the targets being on your back because you are an NFL player. Just accept you continually make bad decisions and leave the NFL.

    Jon Evans…
    Your uninformed or just illiterate.
    The club was NOT open to the public that night.
    The club had extra security for the party plus Vick had his own security so nobody got in that was not invited. So Phillips being there is clearly a parole violation on Vick’s part.
    You also have no answer as to why Vick’s camp lied about him leaving 30 minutes prior to the incident when he is clearly shown on surveillance 3 minutes prior.
    Far be it from me to speculate but since Vick made such a “timely” departure one can assume that Phillips starting getting a little nutty and when Vick knew it was gonna get ugly he blew the scene because he new it was a violation to be hanging with his homie in the first place.
    But I guess we should take the Vick Bros’ at their word since they are such an honest and good hearted pair and have such a good history huh?

  48. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 10:01 PM

    My other statements make up enough that I don’t really have to make another regarding the details of this one.
    Everyone who wants Vick to go back to prison is starting to feel the ego hit they are going to take as he has nothing to do with this and everyone is 100% wrong in their conclusions. :)

  49. PackerAndDarien says: Jul 1, 2010 10:21 PM

    What Jon Evans seems to be missing is the propensity for this individual TO LIE when confronted about his involvement with something.
    Let’s recap, shall we?
    In regards to his involvement in illegal gambling and dogfighting:
    He lied to the local police
    He lied to federal authorities.
    He lied to his employer
    He lied to his employer’s boss
    When confronted with questions about his involvement of illegal behavior, he lies.
    These are facts that cannot be disputed. No matter how much you want to play the Holiday Inn legal defense role, they can’t be. History has proven that. Conclusively.
    He is a PROVEN LIAR.
    Given these few undeniable facts, why should anyone believe him now?
    Accept the naive and gullible sheep like yourselves.

    Sigh, I guess I have to be posting till some day it gets in your head. I don’t care about VICK. I don’t pay attention to what he really says. My ONLY interest in this is pointing out biasd nature reports, hypocrisy, accusations without proof, etc etc.
    You can say anything you want, the problem is this. I will be 100% correct in my analysis of the situation and you will hate that and flip about how he gets special treatment for a week afterwards.

    Oh my god.
    It was $50 dollars to get into the club! it was advertised! it wasn’t a “private party” HOLY CRAP YOU ARE DUMB.
    My response for Vick leaving? his time table? it’s easy, He never gave an “exact” time and simply said he left long before, how is he supposed to know when it happened if he wasn’t there? jesus christ.
    again, him being there is not association by legal definitions. I just completely owned you. Move along.

  60. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 10:50 PM

    That being dsaid, Vick has a right to his place in a public setting and regardless of what his “homie” does he is not violating his parole. Phillips is the only one who could be found to violated any parole. Again, THE PO OFFICER KNEW OF THE PARTY GOING ON. You think he can go around doing these things without informing them? hahahah
    You are the one who is simply uninformed. Get Lost.
    Id rather make fun of the people who actually know what they are talking about and make up illogical conclusions… not ones who obviously don’t know basic facts about the situation

  62. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 11:25 PM

    I made that up? interesting.
    You can also see that Vick made a much “larger” statement than “eight” words.
    Please make a strong statement here right now regarding your stance on this.
    Am I lieing about these statements? Please provide where I have “ever” made anything up? only thiong you still have ever done is try and spin words to try and make it seem as if i did?
    i want to make sure you can’t squirm away as once again i am 100% right and you are again wrong with your assumptions.
    Damn, doesn’t it suck to know you just can’t top me? =) Keep replying, it only fuels me more.

  63. Jon Evans says: Jul 1, 2010 11:27 PM

    oh, and everytime I have posted a link it doesn’t get put up so you can find some non biasd reporting out of Philly dot com in their inquirer.
    again, doesn;t it kill your ego that this “idiot” knows more than you, is still 100% right about everything and will be 100% right about everything?
    I know you will go try and twist words and meanings however, it’s comes out the same. Which is, I’m winning and in the end i will “win” =) tata

    “On June 25, 2010 I attended a birthday party held in my honor at The Guadalajara’s Restaurant in Virginia Beach, Virginia,” the statement read. “After I left the event, I learned that a man was shot outside the restaurant.
    “I want to assure everyone that I had nothing to do with that incident. I left the restaurant prior to it occurring and did not witness what happened.
    “Following the incident, I reported it to the Philadelphia Eagles and to representatives of Commissioner Roger Goodell of the NFL. In addition, I cooperated with and answered any and all questions from Law Enforcement officials investigating this matter. My statements, from the beginning, explained that I was not there at the time of the shooting and had no knowledge of the events surrounding it. I have been completely truthful and fully cooperative from the very beginning and will continue to cooperate with Law Enforcement and the NFL as this investigation continues.”
    thats alot more than 8 words.

    Whitlock hammering away at Vick…

    Ouch
    No QB in the history of the league has done more damage to the reputation of and the opportunities afforded to black quarterbacks than Michael Vick. And I say that knowing full well that as you read this, JaMarcus Russell is likely somewhere scarfing down hot wings at an all-you-can-eat buffet while wearing $2 million in designer jewelry.

  70. Mooch says: Jul 1, 2010 11:46 PM

    Jon Evans,
    I just asked you to provide it. I never suggested you were “lieing” about anything. I really thought you had something. But once again, you take the victim route. Like always. Because you either lack the facts, knowledge, or ability to communicate.
    Now I am sure you are not a lawyer.
    And now, I am in favor of Chris Christie choking off funds to Rutgers.
    You see, my NJ business pays for that school. So I paid for you to sit there and learn nothing, if what you say is true. I paid for you to sit, doodle, fantasize about the hot chick in the class you could never get, and learn zero about the Law System.
    And I am probably paying for you to sit and not work and type all day about things you know nothing about. Not that facts or statements matter, since you are such a coward who won’t stand by them, opting to backtrack and play the victim at every step when challenge.
    And if Rutgers produced a clown like you, it isn’t worth the investment. You swayed me, I am not a fiscal conservative again!
    What a waste of resources. What a waste of an opportunity.

  71. andy reid's belt says: Jul 1, 2010 11:55 PM

    The fact that the Eagirls signed this piece of crap is a perfect example as to how this franchise is now, always has been, and will always be a losing franchise. I don’t give two turds as to what their regular season records are, or how many playoff games they may have won, they are just like the Viqueens….just a lot of smoke and hot air and have never won or never will win a Lombardi.

  72. Mooch says: Jul 1, 2010 11:57 PM

    Jon,
    What you have done, and I am not sure if you learned this tactic with the Rutgers education that MY business paid for, is this…
    You degraded yourself by…
    1) Claiming legal knowledge that was quickly debunked by everyone
    2) Proven wrong with each subsequent story regarding what law enforcement would or could do (based on the “Legal System” as you understood it)
    3) Fabricated legal expertise and degrees from NJ institutions
    3) Flailed wildly, changing your story minute to minute
    4) Denied you said things that, only hours before, you were falling on your sword over
    5) Played the victim, crying that we were attacking you – for reasons never specified
    6) Re-engineered your while position on the issue, disavowing all statements you make regarding the process and law, and refocusing on the net result
    7) Entertained the thought of an alliance with an unrepentant racist, BBD, the only person who agreed with you in the last 72 hours 8) Denied statements and entire arguments that were easily accessible
    9) Showed a total lack of knowledge regarding MV’s past transgressions, got mad when you were called out on it and then pretended you asked a different question
    10) Got defensive and whiny when asked to post some sourcing for yet another silly opinion
    Been quite a day for you, huh?
    Now, since I paid for this amazing lack of legal scholarship. I am just trying to help. The bill comes to me either way, so why not try to salvage someone. Who knows? One day you may even be employable! And be able to pay taxes!
    Because, ya know, NJ needs those at the moment.
    But I am sure you know that, since you are likely an economics expert!

    @Jon Evans… You might be mildly retarded. No, I take that back you ARE mildly retarded. Please stop lying to everyone. You didn’t go to RU. You live in your parent’s basement. Go eat some sherbert and watch x-files, IN YOUR PARENT’S BASEMENT, ya b1tch!

  79. Steve W. says: Jul 2, 2010 1:29 AM

    Everything I’ve posted for 3 days points to Making a case against VICK out of nothing. Spare me your illogical bull. Also to comment on the “almost killed” part… from what we all know it wasn’t even close to anything fatal but thats besides the point. Go eat your sherbert and watch x-files.
    _____________________________
    Hey Jon, two quick points.
    1. Just because he was shot in the leg doesn’t mean that’s what the person was aiming at. Some people just aren’t very good shots.
    2. Sean Taylor was only shot in the leg too. There’s a thing called the femoral artery there. You hit someone in an artery, and it doesn’t take that long to bleed out. So, there’s not really many places you can shoot someone and claim it didn’t put their life at risk.
    Just because the shooting didn’t end up causing a life threatening injury doesn’t mean the intent wasn’t to kill the man, and it doesn’t mean that it couldn’t have killed him even if that wasn’t the intention. Either way, someone is looking at some serious charges. Assault with a deadly weapon at the very least, and yes, attempted murder is a possibility depending on what they find out and how cooperative the suspect is.

  80. annetally says: Jul 2, 2010 1:54 AM

    Whitlock will be crucified. God forbid someone stand up for black athletes who don’t find sadistic pleasure in killing animals, who don’t lie, get caught and land in prison. Keep defending your hero, Ron Mexico, won’t change the facts. He’s a half-ass qb who tortured and killed innocent animals, lied to everyone about it until he finally was exposed and sent to prison. Let’s not forget how your hero Ron knowingly spread his STD’s and was taken to court for that as well. There’s your hero, worship him.

  83. Drat says: Jul 2, 2010 2:33 AM

    Big Tony still doesn’t get it. He’s been on these posts like Vick on a pitbull and he still doesn’t get it.
    The shooting didn’t take place INSIDE the club! If Vick had stayed in the club, he would have an ironclad alibi. The shooting took place a block away from the club down the street in the direction Vick took when he left the club.
    Big Tony. Think. think.

    EXACTLY!!
    WOW – How impressive!
    Jason Whitlock at least has the balls to tell it like it is!

  87. Chapnasty2 says: Jul 2, 2010 7:33 AM

    Mooch as I stated on another post, you and I often bicker about most things related to football but you have been dead on with this clown. For some reason though as he is defeated he moves on to the next posting and says the same crap and ignores the comments of others. It is clear that he is an idiot and his boyfriend BlueEyeDevil are the guys who stood outside of the voting booths dressed as Black Panthers wielding battons in PA.

    Where’s the suspension GOD dell???!!! Big Ben gets 6 for some drunk chick. VICK, a convicted ass, on federal parole, out in a bar where the professional conduct policy is just waiting to be violated..is near a murder and we got simpletons standing up for him? C’MON! This guy is a huge ass, his brother is an ass, he will always be an ass.

  90. Mooch says: Jul 2, 2010 8:13 AM

    Chapnasty – we have never agreed on anything. So this is amazing. But I always tell people that I’m like the NY congressmen at the hearing in “Quiz Show”.
    In sum – I’m from New York…but a different part of NY.
    So just because I am a left leaning person in support of fundamental fairness, I can’t stand people trying to BS me by using either lies or victimhood.
    People need to tell me one simple thing…given where this party was, and that there was a $50 cover charge with Mike Vick as the headline to the event…how was Quanis NOT going to show up?
    And if that never occurred to Marcus Vick, he was stupid and put his brother in a bad spot.
    And if that never occurred to Mike Vick, he was stupid and put himself in a bad spot.
    Mike Vick made himself a PRODUCT, to be purchased for $50 at a PUBLIC EVENT in a space they didn’t CONTROL.
    This event was held in his old stomping grounds where his old associates still lived.
    This event was held in a bar, so implicitly involved alcohol. Ask any bartender or bar owner. You can expect trouble at the nicest bar on any given night. People drink and get stupid.
    So, again…
    1) How was Quanis not going to show up?
    2) How could there be an expectation that the situation couldn’t get out of hand?
    3) Why would Vick, under close scrutiny, be a party to this?
    Simple. Arrogance and stupidity.
    And if he could play even a lick, I might give him a pass. But he stinks as a football player, and I want that $5mm back to re-up DeSean.

    @ Hugh… you are a funny dude!
    @ Dr. JonEvans, Esq. – You are still a dope. The party was public ass, it was advertised and all you had to do was pay $50 and wear white… Oh, and by the way, Quanis Philips’ brother was INVITED. You mean to tell me Vick had NOOOOO idea Q might show up? The logic you use is illogical!

  97. Mooch says: Jul 2, 2010 9:38 AM

    I do not think Vick shot him. I do not think Vick ordered the shooting.
    But you shouldn’t have to tell your posse to shoot a guy that just threw cake in your face at your birthday party.
    That’s Posse 101. I think they offer that course at Rutgers.
    Vick being involved in a public party gone bad is enough for me. “There will be no third chance”.

    the fact that marcus threw this party for his brother, and the fact that neither of the Vick brothers made a “blacklist” to keep certain people out of the club is just insane
    absolutely insane

  100. niteshift says: Jul 2, 2010 11:20 AM

    Kind of sad, really. Forget for a moment who may or may not be a suspect in this case. A black man was shot while leaving a restaurant in a resort city. There is no outrage from his family, the community, the city or the owner of the establishment. Apparently almost 300 people on premises, and no one can or will identify a shooter. No hate crime investigation from the DA. I guess it is OK to fire away in this town. Business as usual in The Beach. (And to think I used to take family there!!)

  101. poonhok says: Jul 2, 2010 11:24 AM

    I guess the lawyers on this message board think the average person gives a tinkers d… about their opinion.
    Fact is, almost every lawyer I’ve known is a complete fool.
    You see, a fool can have years of formal education and STILL not have the good sense or morals to know what is RIGHT and what is WRONG outside the narrow context of their narrow, greedy little litigious world.
    Lawyers are part of the reason our society is headed down the crapper as they have helped foster an environment of entitlement by twisting and choking the spirit of the laws created by real, decent men…
    Enjoy your delusional self-importance, most of us think Shakespeare was right…

    He didn’t do anything, you can’t expect the man to stay locked up in his house 24/7 for the rest of his life. I highly doubt Vick would jeapordize his 2nd chance by getting involved in something this serious.
    The guy has been clean and has done everything asked of him and more since his release from prison.

  104. Raiders757 says: Jul 2, 2010 1:55 PM

    I would just like to point out for the record, that Guadalajara’s is not a “club”, it’s a Mexican restaurant. It was reserved to throw Vick’s birthday party, but it’s mainly full of tables and chairs like any other similar establishment.
    I would also like to point out that it has large windows, and that it’s easy to see outside from almost anywhere inside the place. If this shooting happened right in front of the place, there is no way somebody didn’t see who did it. The police to charge everyone in attendance for obstruction until someone comes forward with the shooters name or description. There is no way somebody didn’t see who fired the shots, inside or outside.

  105. Mooch says: Jul 2, 2010 2:24 PM

    Yeah, Michael and Marcus don’t have enough money for a “club”.
    They couldn’t even afford to get one of the good tables at Chuck E Cheese – ya know, the ones right in front of the puppet band.
    At some point, Marcus will be able to use his employee discount at Chuck E Cheese, since he’s failed at football and now party promotions.

  106. golongboyee says: Jul 2, 2010 3:28 PM

    ….the most impressive point of this piece is the fact that Mike Vick actually knows 8 words!!!!!!!!!
    I am impressed!!!!!!!!!!!

  107. RedsGhost says: Jul 2, 2010 6:02 PM

    Question for y’all. Isn’t Marcus himself a felon? Maybe I’m wrong but I thought he was and IF he is, shouldn’t Mike the Idiot be avoiding associating with him?
