Roddy White says he left party before fight

Michael Vick picked up Roddy White at the airport on Thursday in anticipation of Vick’s 30th birthday party and Vick’s youth football camp held at Hampton University.

White says he and his ex-quarterback celebrated together, but were gone by the time a fight broke out, ending in gunshots.

“We were already gone by the time that stuff started happening, so I
don’t know what’s going to go on with that or whatever, but we didn’t
have anything to do with it,” White told the Daily Press on Friday, during a break from camp.

The fight occurred at 2:10 A.M. and Vick’s old dogfighting co-defendent Quanis Phillips was reportedly shot, although he didn’t want anyone to know.  Police say Phillips initially tried to drive away from the scene before getting pulled over and being taken to the hospital.

Vick spoke to campers on Thursday, but it’s unclear if he was there Friday too.  Some of Vick’s words on Thursday:

“I tell these kids the truth, because I don’t want them to follow in my
footsteps working so hard for everything that they’ve accomplished and
building a legacy, and not having the opportunity to defend that legacy
if something detrimental happened.”

  1. There were cameras and video phones everywhere. The incident will be on all the blogs tomorrow. That’s not too long to wait to withhold judgement

  2. The only real question is, did phillips show up AFTER vick left, if so all is good, if not hes screwed

  3. See?! Vick was already gone! Some ppl will do whatever it takes to bring another man down. How about we wait to see what else comes out before judging the situation.
    Philly loves you Vick, you’ll be ok.

  4. Vick and Roddy left right after Vick gave the orders to his henchmen and before they carried them out, so technically speaking Roddy is probably right.

  5. Legacy? He’s got to be kidding. Vick is a thug, punk dog killer who just broke his probation. He should be back in jail and banned from the NFL for good. This is a layup for Gooddell. Where is Father of the year Andy Reid? The arrogance of the Eagles and Vick is breathtaking.

  6. This is one of the best most efficient sites for football news. Unfortunately, it’s one of the worst sites to post comments. Who waits fifteen minutes for their comment to post? It’s like having to use land line instead of a mobile. Like having to use the newspaper instead of the Internet. Come on Florio pull the stick out. There has to be a better way to screen abusive comments..

  7. Roddy White will now be called to testify regarding the Ron Mexico shooting outside Guadalajara.
    Unlike Top Pot, nobody will want to go to Guadalajara’s in the future.

  8. “I tell these kids the truth, because I don’t want them to follow in my footsteps working so hard for everything that they’ve accomplished and building a legacy, and not having the opportunity to defend that legacy if something detrimental happened,”

    He obviously read alot of Churchill while he was up the river.

  9. Someone in Vick’s position is playing with [gun]fire simply by going to clubs.
    It appears he is not going to be completely happy until he pisses away everything.
    When he gets out of the slammer next time, and there will be a next time if he keeps making these same kinds of decisions, there will be no huge NFL contract waiting.
    Some people just can’t get out of there own way.

  10. Am i wrong or was this club a public place? How can Vick control who shows up? Florio you are retarded. you are just another pawn of the media spewing sensationalized nonsense to get more site views and google hits.

    –Eagles fan here who disagrees. He did his time but to say Philly loves you is a reach.

  12. Vick’s words on Thursday to the campers illustrate how he is still in denial and unwilling to face accountability for his actions. He talks about not having an opportunity to defend a legacy “if something detrimental happened.” This is classic victimhood thinking. He’s really skirting the truth which is that he is fully responsible for what happened. He makes it sound as if this terrible mishap befell him — something “happened” — over which he had no control. I don’t think Vick has changed at all, he’s just become more skilled at mouthing all the right platitudes for media consumption.

  13. Are you from Philly jibfest? If so, you should already know by being around other Eagles fans in the city.
    If not, STFU ’cause you have no reason to speak on it.

  14. @WildBirdOffense—–
    As a resident of Philadelphia and an Eagles fan, I am appalled that you think “Philly loves you Vick”. Please don’t lump me into the ignorant people you must associate with. Tell me honestly that he was worth the baggage he came with last year…please? One game with 2-3 good plays against Atlanta and a TD pass in the playoffs because the defender slipped? C’mon dude.
    I certainly do not love Vick, nor does anyone real football fan I know, and that’s without considering his criminal past.
    Some people in Philly love you Vick, some can’t stand you…

  15. Are you from Philly jibfest? If so, you should already know by being around other Eagles fans in the city.
    If not, STFU ’cause you have no reason to speak on it.

  16. Philly fans love all their players, we love vick however he’s like the child who’s always trying to destroy the family so you push him afar and make sure he’s got what he needs

  17. WildBirdOffense, Philly does NOT love Mike Vick and you do NOT speak for the city.

  18. still dont see what vick did wrong,for all these people to come on here and rag him,he was at his birthday party,he left,a fight broke out,somebody was shot,end of story[well all that pertaines to vick anyways], i swear,some people just go around being miserable and arent happy till they try and make other miserable with them.
    Fine,if you wanna bag on him about the dogs,go ahead,but you cant put this on him,just cause he was in the same general area something bad happened

  19. “and not having the opportunity to defend that legacy if something detrimental happened.”
    POS is still accepting zero responsibility for what he did. He acts like getting caught was the result of a natural disaster or something. Goodell time to get rid of this massive A-HOLE once and for all.

  20. WildBirdMVbjGiver,
    “Philly loves you Vick.”
    WHAT?
    Speak for yourself you degenerate lover! I don’t love Vick! And, I’m a lifelong Eagles fan born and raised in Philly!
    Your statement would make sense if you wrote: “Certain losers love you just cuz your skin is the same color as theirs.”

    So one of Vick’s best friends swears he was gone before the incident that could end Vick’s career happened, and you buy it hook line and sinker.
    Sure, why not? Why would he lie? LOLOL

  23. “Am i wrong or was this club a public place? How can Vick control who shows up? Florio you are retarded. you are just another pawn of the media spewing sensationalized nonsense to get more site views and google hits.”
    No but being on parole he has two choices once he and phillips were together he either
    1) calls the police
    2) leaves the area without speaking to phillips
    If he does neither he goes back to jail for parole violation

  24. Another Eagles fan here, who doesn’t even like Vick much less “love” him.
    Overrated, overpaid, and overhyped even before we found out about his sadistic tendencies!
    Vick is not a winner.
    Vick has subpar career and season stats.
    But, he used to be able to run! Whoopee!

    ======================
    Nope, you’re wrong. The club may have typically been open to the public, but on this night it was rented out for Vick’s party.
    Do you have any other insightful points to make, genius?

  26. I’ve been an Eagles fan for 50 years and when I heard Vick was coming here I was pissed beyond belief! Keep your words out of my mouth WildBird and speak for yourself. I know for a fact that more people in Philly want him gone then don’t. He’s nothing but a stupid thug and is detained to fail as a human being.

    Youre not wrong Vick cant control who shows up, but it is his responsibility to leave immediately and if he didnt, then that would be a violation of his parole.

  28. How stupid do you have to be to throw yourself a party in the town where all the trouble started and your disreputable “former” associates just happen to reside? All while currently under probation from prison!
    That takes a special kind of stupid. A Michael Vick kind of stupid!

  29. The Virginia Beach police said Vick is “of no interest to us” as police investigate, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.
    According to spokesman Adam Bernstein, the Virginia Beach police received a 911 call from a cell phone at 2:11 a.m. ET. An unnamed person reported hearing a verbal dispute and a subsequent gunshot in Virginia Beach’s Town Center section.
    Officers responded to the scene at the 4600 block of Columbus Street, according to the Daily News, and were told a shooting victim was being driven to the hospital in a car the police later stopped.

  30. I don’t want them to follow in my footsteps working so hard for everything that they’ve accomplished and building a legacy, and not having the opportunity to defend that legacy if something detrimental happened.”
    Vick is on record saying he slacked off and rode his athletic talent so the statement is 100% BS.

  33. vick your a lot of things but qb ain’t one of them. you are the worst qb i ever saw. someone should make you a slot reciever, wild kat vick! my dog cant wait to get a hold of you LOSER!

  34. Some ppl will do whatever it takes to bring another man down. How about we wait to see what else comes out before judging the situation.

    On the contrary, most Eagle fans despise this POS and have wanted him gone since the day AR signed him.

  36. Ahhhh, poor AWMs….told y’all Florio was setting your lil hopes up for a big fail. LOL

  37. Vick is the best backup QB in the league and if Kolb goes down, there is no one else I want to see behind the center.
    Never in my life have I witnessed fans from OTHER teams that HATE the Eagles actually say — “you know, I hate the Eagles, but I must say, when Vick comes in for his snaps….you never know WHATS gonna happen. The man STILL leaves you on the edge of your seat”
    He brings excitement to the team and I appreciate that. People that judge Vick on what he does ON the field and not off of it appreciate it as well.

    These are the same police and DA that investigated the dog fighting charges and refused to bring charges. I wouldn’t bet that if the Feds get involved (I believe he was convicted in Federal Court on the dog fighting which means he is on probation with the Feds) that Vick would “be of interest to them” and it’s money in the bank that it will be of interest to Roger Goodell.

    Stop playing the race card.
    Black people don’t need a boogeyman, they are more than capable of messin’ up on their own…..

  43. So one of Vick’s best friends swears he was gone before the incident that could end Vick’s career happened, and you buy it hook line and sinker.
    Sure, why not? Why would he lie? LOLOL
    =============
    Security cameras show he had left. #2 Police : ” Vick is of no interest to us”
    now for the people saying vick has to leave if someone shows up etc, no. This works just like a restraining order. He was there first, he has to do nothing but sit and enjoy his good ole time. Only person who violated paroll would be the other party. Stop being selective and please brush up on your law if you are going to make broad statements. Cheers.

  44. again, for all those who obviously know nothing about law. Vick established his presense at a public place regardless of how you want to spin it. He doesn’t have to go anywhere. If anybody violated anything it would be the other party for showing up knowingly. Stop choosing sides with broad statements and maby take a basic crim course. However, even this being said.. hundreds of people are going to continue to spew out nonsense saying he “has to leave” when he does not. haha… people are just biasd and severely uneducated in the matter.

  46. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Eagles are confident Michael Vick was not at the scene when his cousin, Quanis Phillips, was shot by an unknown male after Vick’s birthday Friday morning.
    If the name Quanis Phillips rings a bell, it’s because he was a prominent part of Bad Newz Kennelz. Vick’s continued association with Phillips throws up a red flag, though no punishment looks likely. The Eagles are reportedly convinced Vick “was long gone before anything happened.” “The sense is Vick will be okay,” tweeted La Canfora late Friday. “

  47. Whoever thinks that Vick has a “right to be at a public place” are correct. But it is awful judgment to send out pay invites to 300 people to your b-day party with no control over who is there when you are on probation and risking millions of dollars. He is an idiot for even having his name on the invitation, showing up or having any association with it.
    How about cutting ties with all the stuff in your past that got you in all of your previous troubles. I have had more birthdays than Vick and have never worried about someone showing up to my parties with a gun, let alone getting shot. He had the ability to control the situation by not taking part in it. Stupid is as stupid does.
    Kharma says that if there were a Prison for the Criminally Stupid…Vick and Ben would be cell mates there and could spend the rest of their lives debating who could have had the better career if they weren’t so stupid.

    _______________________________
    Exactly what I thought when I read that. He also admitted he quit on his team in 05.
    If you are a whiny bitch and a horrible teammate (like Peyton Manning) you’d best be great at playing your position (like Peyton). Vick is not.
    Plus…anyone here believe that Mr. Newport News thug knows words like “detrimental?” Heh.

  49. OMG! Who the f@#k cares about Philly? A bunch of fair weather ignorant fans who don’t know anything about sports what so ever. Give it a rest. You guys won’t make the playoffs anyway. Doesn’t matter if you love Vick or Kolb. You had a good QB and you ran him out of town and by November you will be booing Kolb too. You got other problems other than Vick. A QB who has barely played 3 games, a WR who can’t keep his mouth closed, and a coach that looks like Wally The Walrus. He can’t keep his own son’s out of jail. Good luck!

  51. My Pappy says that he is only half racist he hates black men and loves black women, especially Serena Williams. Pappy salivates like Pavlov’s dogs when he thinks about eating that strawberry and cream outfit she wore.

  52. polo550, Who the f@#k cares about Philly? Obviously, you do. To have discrened (do you know what that means) that information from the news means that you are reading about the Eagles. But obviously, your cognition skills are lacking. If you had them you would know a) it was time for McNabb to go, b) Jackson knows how to support his new QB and to say ^%$# McNabb who threw him under the bus last year after McNabb’s awful performances against Dallas, and c) even the best parents can have trouble with their children. So thank you for your interest in Philly even though it is wrought with ignorance. Hopefully, when you have a child some day, he or she can grow up with class although saddled with a boob like you for a parent, it will be difficult.

  53. The shooter was wearing a Wife-beater and driving an Escalade! What else would he be wearing and driving?

  54. 1: Vick is a scumbag liar. My dog is waiting for you too.
    2: Legally he didn’t have to leave, but given the second chance he was provided in the NFL he should have. He don’t just have laws to follow like you and I, he has Goodells’s laws to abide by too. And this don’t look good for his future, sorry vick fans.
    3: WildBirdOffense -is a moron and an idiot. You love him for what he does on the field? he is a backup….so what do u think of the starters??

  55. At Least someone here reports stories with out embellishing or forcing his bias opinions into the story.
    Florio’s point has been that even though Vick had nothing to do with the shooting he was wrong for putting himself in that situation. But he has said nothing about the multiple other NFL players that were at the party and putting themselves in that position or the other Steelers players who were with Ben while he was raping girls.
    It just proves how full of shit he really is. If he really thought being at a public party is a horrible thing he would be attacking every player in attendance. But he doesnt he is just saying that now to cover his own ass. When the story first came out and their was no facts available florio ran to his computer and started spinning wild tales about Vick partying with a bunch of thugs and his co defendant who hes not allowed to be around and being involved in his shooting. After that was proved wrong he started backpedaling looking for a way to make it seem like Vick was still in the wrong so he didnt look like such an idiot for making so much shit up and trying to lynch Vick.

  56. Legacy?
    Legacy?
    Oh, believe me you thug punk, you have a legacy.
    Hide your beagle, Vick’s and Eagle.
    What a doof.
