What I don't get is how Joey Harrington keeps finding starting jobs.

And meanwhile his cousin is winning the British Open.

As for Vick, this is probably best for everyone. He stills gets paid and the distractions for him and the team aren't there.

That is what the Falcons are thinking of their trade with Houston.

They both have a great knack for falling ass-backwards into good fortune. He hit two balls in the water on the 72nd hole and still won. Unbelievable.

Also Vick has hired Billy Martin to plead his case:

Or maybe it's the Bill Martin that played basketball at Georgetown:

I'm actually surprised, I thought he was going to pull a Bud Selig and wait until after the jury made a decision.
Do you think the players union will fight this?

I do not think that NFLPA want's to touch this one at all. It is not like Vick is forefeiting any pay to stay away. On another note nobody want's to be known for supporting Vick with all of the evidence against him. Furthermore the NFLPA sits on Goodell's Player Conduct board. I am sure that they spoke on this matter prior to the decision.

Yeah, but didn't they run to Pacman Jones side?

I don't think evidence or the charges where this bad against Pacman.

well, the evidence was overwhelming, but the charges are not considered as severe. True.

As long as Vick is getting paid I don't see a problem with Goodell ordering him to stay at home. If I were Vick I would probably stay home just to let things cool down a bit.

As for the NFLPA getting involved, you can bet your ass NFLPA will fight it, especially if Vick didn't violated any conduct policy. If the NFLPA doesn't fight it then what good are they? What's the point of being a member of a union that doesn't fight for it's members?

I dont think there is any way the union touches this. I dont think the NFL would have any trouble finding conduct policies violated by Vick in this case so thats not even a worry for the NFL lawyers.

This is a cant win for the union, they know that. They will leave this alone.

The NFL is already catching a lot of heat for not doing serious anything about Vick yet. People are watching this situation, and watching Vick slowly go down in flames, and that includes the guys that are squealing on him. NFLPA wont touch this matter with a 30 foot pole. Vick is on his own
