wayne, there is no such thing as wrongful dismissal in pro sports LOL. We see it all the time, one team cuts a player and in a matter of days he has a bigger and better contract with another team. NFL contracts are not guaranteed, a team can sign a player for a 10 year contract and cut him after the first year and owe him nothing! The NFL is the only top 4 sport that doesnt have guaranteed contracts like they do in the NHL, NBA and MLB.

Your ignorance is laughable since you seem to think you know so much when in fact you know as much as my 8 year old nephew which is probably the age range you are in anyway LOL.

Has Pacman Jones been found guilty in a court of law yet ? No but he is done for the year. In every players contract there is a clause of being of moral character which Vick hasnt done with the dog fighting ring.

Get a clue before you talk about stuff you know nothing bout I am getting tired of always correcting you!

To fire a guy from his job or suspend him you must have good reason. If he's found guilty, you will be all right, if he's not found guilty, your gonna have one huge lawsuit on your hand and dole out huge bucks for wrongful dismissal.

Until Hell freezes over or Reverend Ian Paisley becomes Pope - whichever comes first.

Vick should get a life time suspension from the NFL.

Also jail time and a huge fine and at least half should go to the SPCA or whatever name it goes by in the states.

Vick has a university degree so he should have known what he was doing and the conquences of his involvement.

Looks like the USUAL suspects around here SPEWING OUT their HOLIER THAN THOU venom.

Calling a man a "sicko" and advocating for his INCARCERATION - is so typical of the MINDLESS, and MORALLY CORRUPT.

All I'll say is ... IF these accusations are TRUE ... then I hope Mike Vick gets all the HELP he needs to make AMENDS and get on with his life.

It may be that some Jail time is required to both pay his DEBT, and get some PERSPECTIVE on his life.

To the rest of you SANCTIMONIUS blow hards who think yourselves sooooo SPECIAL ... go back and learn YOUR LESSONS you bunch of HYPOCRITES !!

Peace.

Michael Vick should be suspended for life just for it having been on his property and if it is proven that he knew about what was going on there, then he should go to jail as well.

Innocent until proven guilty, right? True, but if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...it's probably a duck.

Of course, if it was a duck, Michael Vick would probably train it to kill other ducks anyway.

You're absolutely right, it is much more important for Michael Vick to be able to throw a football for 16 days and allow his second sport of pitting animals against one another go on because there are more horrific things in this world. The fact that there are laws against this in the U.S. shouldn't matter, what should matter is that he makes a lot of money from people like you who buy his video game/shoes/ and jersey. You sir are an idiot if you don't recognize the depravity in Vick's actions.

You make a good point though, there are more important things in this world, Vick's salary/endorsement money should be redirected to those nations you mentioned to rebuild and to the widows of the soldiers lost.

Ah yes, the cry of "innocent till proven guilty" makes me laugh. That and the use of the the Duke Lacross team as a reason not to persecute Mr. Vick. B.S!!! First off, the NFL has suspended Pacman Jones for the season and he was never convicted of anything, so the need for the courts to determine that Vick is guilty prior to suspension is a load of crap. The Duke team was charged on the word of one person and who's cause was taken up by an overzealous and office-seeking lawyer. Vick has been seen at the events, had the dead dogs on his property and has a breeding license for these dogs.....a little different.

Should any cops break into my home and find an illegal grow op I don't think I could get away with, "officers I do own this property but I have no idea what goes on here." I don't believe any of my neighbours would give me the benefit of a doubt. If it walks, flies, talks like a duck...

The piece de resistance is the involvement of the NAACP, making this a race issue and further, in my opinion, degrading their relevance. Representing a multi-millionaire athlete who is charged with racketeering and the disgusting act of dogfighting and blaming the media/NFL is pathetic at best. Their focus should be on African Americans who are living below the poverty line and not corporate shills like Vick. What's next, Grey power defending Conrad Black.
