Re: Vick Offered Minimum One Year Prison Sentence as Part of Plea Deal

Honestly a year is way to much. He has never been convicted of anything before. How is fighting some dogs (personal property) worth getting a YEAR is prison? Poor guy. No way he should accept.

You're right. I say he should only get two hours.

Of course, those two hours should be spent in a ring covered in A-1 sauce with the personal property that he tortured and maimed and, if he tries to exit the ring, will just taser his ass.

What an insanely stupid statement. Read the indictment. If you in anyway condone that behavior or believe it is even acceptable conduct for members of society, then you and I have serious, probably irreconcilable, differences as to the treatment of living things.

Maybe I would agree with your point if it was some causual dog fighting once in a blue moon, but from what I have read he had an illegal organized dog fighting ring which bring in more laws broken. Then you add in the fact of how these dogs where treated and killed makes it even that much worse. Poor guy nothing, a year sentence is light for what he has done. He knew what he was doing so the poor guy agument is stupid.

Totally, Mike was somewhat of a dog fighting.......lord, not a casual user. IMO, that increases the severity of the offense!

Re: Vick Offered Minimum One Year Prison Sentence as Part of Plea Deal

He'd be stupid not to take this. With 1 year, at least there would be the possibility that he can get back in the league. If he gets the max (5 years) it's all over and he's the biggest punchline in the league's fight against poor conduct. What worries me is the possibility that he gets 1 year and only serves 3 months because the prisons are "overcrowded" ala Paris Hilton.

I think I heard somewhere that one reason he might accept the plea is that the prosecution is prepared to bring out new charges that could mean Vick would face up to 27 years in prison.

I think it comes down to either: 1. Fight the charges and risk longer jail time but maybe save your career if you win. 2. Go with the plea, less time in jail, goodbye football

Not a decision I'd want to have to make.

From what I hear, it's a no-brainer. The guy is nailed. Here's betting he serves less than six months and plays next year.

LOCK HIM UP. It is kinda funny when I look back and remember when his little brother Marcus was in all the trouble at Tech. Dope and under-age girls. He should have taken his own advice about staying out of trouble. as I said "LOCK HIM UP." And, any team that would touch him after all this is out of there minds.

There is no such thing as Parole from federal prison. He will do every day of his sentence.

Re: Vick Offered Minimum One Year Prison Sentence as Part of Plea Deal

My hope is that if he takes the one year plea deal, the Atlanta Falcons drop him. I haven't seen his contract, but I find it hard to believe that they couldn't get out of it with the given circumstances. If it comes down to it, the NFL would probably help out the Falcons out (monetarily or whatever) just to save some face in the public eye. I doubt he ever plays in the NFL again, and if he does that's pretty sad.

I wonder who he is ratting on to get such a light sentence.

It wasn't just some casual event as a previous poster mentioned. Allegedly, and it sounds very credible that the evidence is rock solid, he was involved in a brutal, inhumane activity that killed and maimed dogs against their will. “Poor guy.” Man, what have you been smokin’? In addition, if the gambling angle is ever proven, he will have committed yet another FEDERAL crime. That alone has major implications. Mike Vick is no poor soul my friend and a one year suspension would be getting off extremely light. However, I think he would be foolish if he were not to accept the plea. He could do his time, albeit a short term, get out and somehow try to get back into the good graces of the NFL (not likely). Or, and I would almost be willing to take the higher risk option, he could fight it in court. Remember, it would be a jury trial and he only has to convince one juror of his innocence. I guess we’ll know pretty soon what he decides to do, but Vick is no saint.

This is getting ridicules. He seems to be guilty of something. So far it looks like he placed bets, and he bankrolled it. But to spend anymore than a year in jail for dogfighting seems a little crazy to me. For this type of crime a few months seems more logical.

Doesn't sound like he's ratting on anybody, more the opposite if anything, that his boys are on him.

I don't think it's a light sentence for a plea deal. A deal is always a lighter sentence, or there would be no incentive for it. Is it light compared to what he might get if the feds add additional charges related to conspiring in a gambling operation? yes, but that's all the more reason the feds are threatening those charges, so they can make this deal & be done w/it.

I see him playing again. He'll get the right pr help & try to make amends w/the public. One thing he may have going for him is that it sounded from the indictment that he tried to distance himself from the operation 3 years ago when he & TAylor had the falling out. Did he get out of the business then? I guess that remains to be seen.
