NFL suspends Vick indefinitely without pay

Postby coastal89 » Fri Aug 24, 2007 4:15 pm

not only without pay but...

Goodell freed the Falcons to "assert any claims or remedies" to recover $22 million of Vick's signing bonus from the 10-year


Goodell ain't playing and some others need to pay close attention to this.

Vick will be lucky to ever play another down in the NFL. The gambling issue will cause him as much problem with the NFL as will the dogfighting-related activities. If he does play in the NFL again, I don't think it will be as a qb. He is a good enough athlete to be a "slash" type player like Kordell Stewart was for the Steelers a few years ago. Vick could be a returner/wide receiver/running back/qb type player but I don't see him ever being the face of a franchise again, which is what a qb is. He'll probably have to try playing again because by the time he gets done paying his legal fees, fines and returning all that signing bonus money to the Falcons, combined with the fact he is now unemployed and without an income, he is going to have little choice but to try to play again just to make some money. Talk about throwing it all away ...

I can't believe there are still people in this country who defend this guy.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

Someone out there will give Vick a job.. a team desperate for a QB.. and after a couple years in prison he'll be back running around. He'll be out of shape, not as quick, two years older, and still inaccurate and he'll be without a job. Until he rises in Arena Football where he'll become a superstar.
