The Mike Vick saga
Well I always said I would give him a chance. As a human being we all make mistakes and we all deserve a 2nd chance. But how does it go, Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me? Classic case of that. Here is the Latest story around the ongoing Vick Saga. A story in which it looks as if the Eagles are playing very smart to get enough evidence to release him so they do not have to owe him the 5.4 million that would be due. If he were to get released before that he would be owed that money. Much like what Blank did in Atlanta to him.
Heres the latest from USA today.
Probation officials have put Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick under orders not to leave the state of Pennsylvania, his crisis manager told NBC-TV in Philadelphia.
Vick, who was cleared of criminal wrongdoing after a shooting occurred at his Virginia Beach birthday party on Jun 25, has missed several appointments as a result of the order, Judy Smith told NBC. Vick missed a football camp in Baltimore on Friday and a golf tournament in Atlanta during the weekend.
Vick is on probation for his 2007 federal conviction on a federal dogfighting crime. While he was cleared of criminal liability in the shooting, federal probation officials have not said if he violated the terms of his supervised release.
Also, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is conducting a review into whether Vick violated the terms of his 2009 reinstatement.
Tony Dungy, who served as Vick’s mentor when he transitioned back to the NFL, said Thursday that Goodell may yet impose discipline on Vick. Dungy said Vick’s party — which was open to all for an admission price — was a “recipe for failure” for him.
“He’s made some mistakes that probably he won’t make again, hopefully,” Dungy told the Dan Patrick radio show. “Just really not very good judgment and putting himself in a position where you’re inviting the public to pay money and come to a birthday party.”
