No Michael Vick Thread?

I’m surprised I haven’t seen a thread on this topic yet. As a dog lover, I think that Michael Vick is the scum of the earth. There are few things in this world more reprehesible than than torturing and killing the helpless, whether they be dogs, cats, or children.

Luckily, given that the feds convict at a rate of 95%, it seems pretty unlikely that Ron Mexico is going to get out of this one. Its going to be realy interesting to see how the NFL responds to this. I can only imagine the fiasco that is oposing stadiums when he plays. Who let the dogs out? and *Where my dogs at?*arend in it, and are only the beginning of the taunts that he is going to hear.

Ron Mexico?

See wikipedia, Controversy section.

“In March 2005 a woman named Sonya Elliott filed a civil lawsuit against Vick alleging she contracted genital herpes from Vick and that he failed to inform her that he had the disease. Elliot further alleged that Vick had visited clinics under the alias “Ron Mexico” to get treatments and thus he knew of his condition. This led to a deluge of fans ordering customized #7 Atlanta Falcons jerseys on with the name “Mexico” on the back. Due to the media interest surrounding the case, the National Football League disallowed the use of the jersey/name combination two days after the lawsuit. On April 24, 2006 Vick’s attorney revealed that the lawsuit had settled out of court with a undisclosed settlement.”

Doh! I usually don’t read the pit much, I am at the moderators mercy. Even so, I think that its good to have a discusion on this topic in a non-pit manner.

Jesus! Thats hilarious! Makes “Rusty Shackleford” seem downright plausable.

Thanks for the answer!

I’m not much of an NFL fan but the name Michael Vick kept ringing a bell. Finally I remembered Really!?!, a SNL bit. Same guy.

Wotta tool.

Actually the pit thread is pretty mild, pretty much everyone agreeing he’s an ass who’s in deep shit.

The Falcons are in pretty deep shit as well. Their backup QB is Joey fucking Harrington.
