The disgusting actions by Michael Vick are indeed reprehensible. He spent more time in Jail then people, who beat their wives, kill people while drunk driving and countless other crimes against human beings spend in jail. When someone commits a crime they go to jail and pay their debt to society. Someone find me where in the laws it says after you spend your debt that we won’t let you continue to make a living? Or you should be ridiculed for the rest of your life and black balled from using the god given skills you are given.


For all of you that want to voice an outrage how about voicing one for the football player that killed someone while driving drunk. What did he get? A year of house arrest. Or the players who beat their wives and gf's who get probation.

Just to name a few.

Donte Stallworth 30 days in jail killed pedestrian -- 59-year-old Mario Reyes R.I.P

Jayson Williams shot and killed 55-year-old Costas "Gus" Christofi R.I.P

Leonard Little, DE, St. Louis Rams.Susan Gutweiler R.I.P

Dude, this video has been circulating among my friends for a month or so now, so hilarious. We watched this guy's other videos but none of them even approach the honey badger.

WHOA! Watch out says that bird!

in Dante's defense, the man whom died was at fault and he could have fought the charges and got off, he plead guilty against his lawyers wishes and accepted his punishment out of regret.

It's been a while since I paid attention to such things but the last time I did, the demographic that would buy Nike shoes because they had Vick's name on it was not the same demographic that'd give a damn that he got caught doing something illegal.

What demographic would that be? Mile Vick has spent more time in jail for a dog, which isn't human then the BART cop who "accidentally" pulled out his pistol instead of a taser

Mike Vick never spent a day in jail for a dog, actually. When the state refused to prosecute, the Feds stepped in on interstate gambling violations or something like that. To this day, I believe he still has never faced a single charge in VA.

And as to the demographic comment, read into that what you will. It was intentionally vague and whether it was exaggerated or not is at your discretion as well.

The demographic comment could be taken one of two ways:

1) Black kids
or
2) Young football players, no matter what the race

When I was playing ball in high school, I wore Iverson shoes exclusively. I didn't care about any of his off-court issues whatsoever. So you could say it's a youth thing and not a race thing. The kids who play the sport will want whoever the best player is at the time.

Pretty much. I knew he was trying to peg me as racist and didn't feel like playing the game. Race doesn't necessarily pertain but it was targeted more specifically at those of any race who would pay a premium for shoes because they were endorsed by a particular player. Last time I paid any attention to shoes was when Jordans were one of the only endorsed shoes but I seem to recall them costing substantially more than similar shoes without the endorsement. If you'll pay a premium just to wear shoes endorsed by a particular athlete, you don't seem like the kind that would be worried about someone's criminal history.

That's all I was implying; nothing more, nothing less.

I don't buy Nike's, too narrow for my taste and I have big feet. But I fully support Nike's right to use him as a spokesperson. Obviously they crunched the stats and found that dog lovers don't buy enough shoes to hurt us. Young black and white kids just see how well he plays on the field and they don't care about the other stuff. In a world where there are rapes, murders, people ripping off old people etc etc I guess the country forgives something like animal cruelty pretty fast.

I don't spend enough time on the site, I guess. I never realize the 'behind the scenes' storylines building.

I think it was Mightysmurf and his almost lady conquests.

Epic has become a 400 lber.

Now Conklin is an English teacher with bad grammar who pissed off Cut...

Stallworth was charged with DUI and second degree manslaughter on April 1, 2009; he surrendered to police on April 2, 2009, and was released on $200,000 bail.He pled guilty, and received a sentence of 30 days in jail, plus 1,000 hours of community service, 2 years of house arrest, and 8 years probation. He has also received a life-time suspension of his Florida state driver's license.

On July 10, 2009, Stallworth was released from jail after serving 24 days of a 30-day sentence.

The Associated Press reported on June 16, 2009, that Stallworth and the Reyes family reached a financial agreement, avoiding a civil lawsuit. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed.


He pleaded guilty if it were you would ya plead guilty if you didn't do anything?

This has been talked about a lot here. Even though he had been drinking it wasn't the reason for the accident. I'm pretty sure it was a case of 50/50 fault for the accident happening which is why Stallworth got off so easy.

I think the reason Stallworth not talked about as much is an easy on to figure out if you think about it a little. When we hear stories one of the first things we do is see if we could see ourselves being in that situation. With Vick I was like no way, I love dogs, and even animals I don't like I would never fight them, or kill them like that. I don't even hunt. But I could see myself in Stallworths situation. We all drive, we all have driven after a beer or 2 earlier and could have had someone step in front of the car. Not like he drove into oncoming traffic. I think that is a big difference between how people view the 2 situations.

You know you haven't worn your running shoes in a long....long while.... when both your treads peel off before you make it a block.

I recently found a pair of my old Nikes in the attic last month and tried them out. Thought I'd take our new pups out for an early walk on a Saturday with the old sneaks.

Anyone got any good suggestions on some good glue. I've tried three so far without any luck.

You have way too strong of an opinion about something you know next to nothing about.

The forensics done at the crime scene showed that Stallworth's BAC did not impair his stopping distance when he hit the pedestrian. they guy ran out in front of his car to get across the street to the bus. Stallworth happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, had a BAC of .10, just over the legal limit of .08, he hit the guy because of the gy;s actions then immediately stopped and called 911. Stallworth then felt so bad about it that he plead guilty to manslaughter, which he likely wouldn't have been convicted of, and will pay for the man's children's schooling for the rest of their lives.

Suggesting that what Stallworth did is worse than the systematic torture and killing (often by extremely sadistic means) of countless animals over several years just shows me that you don't think about things reasonably before forming opinions on them.
