Smart move on his part. The quicker he gets this over with the better.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

I wonder how Goodell will deal with Vick once he can come back, you would think he'll be forced to sit out another season at the very least.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

This is going to be one juicy thread. He's definitely done for the year now. You figure he'll do a minimum of 1 year, so that probably scratches 2008.

So the earliest he'll be back is '09....that's if he does a straight 12 month sentence.

Rumor: From everything I've read and heard, he may be done until 2010. BuhBye Michael...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

Curiously, the site is overwhelmed.

For those who have read the report, are potential State charges affected? The Surry County DA apparently has a bit of a mad-on right now.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick accepted a plea deal Monday and lengthy prison sentence to avoid additional federal charges in a dogfighting case that has driven his NFL career to a halt.

How long is lengthy?

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

I have a question. Does the NFL suspension begin when he gets out of jail?
I would assume so. Any info there guys?

Where did you read that? Would like to look into that. Haven't heard squat up here, other than folks saying the year minimum and maybe earlier for good behavior type stuff. I think they are talking out of there butt though.

He can't apologize to those dogs he murdered. I want to see him do a lot of time, and I don't want to see him play in the NFL again. I don't care if he goes to the Arena League, CFL, w/e, as long as he doesn't get the privilege of wearing an NFL uniform.

I do think he made the right move by accepting the plea deal though, there was no way he was gonna get out of this one. I could definitely see Goodell banning him from the league because he essentially pleaded guilty to betting on his dogs as well.

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Vick to Enter Guilty Plea

And the fat lady has sang! As for his suspension, I don't think it should be concurrent with his time in jail. I mean, his ass is in jail...that's not exactly a suspension is it? He should be suspended for a year after he is done with his jail time. See you in 2010 I say.

The commisioner hasn't suspended Vick yet. Presumably, he can do so at any time. The Falcons will be able to cut Vick and seek repayment of unearned bonus money (around $22.5 million) as soon as he is in default of his contract - first unexcused miss of practice, meeting, etc. Once arraigned, Vick will be in default, and he can be cut. The commissioner is in no hurry to suspend or ban Vick - he will face a jail sentence, and then any suspension will make it unlikely he will be signed.

Think about Tank Johnson. He is a talented DT, who broke the law served his time, faces an eight game suspension, and has no team - therefore his suspension doesn't start until he is signed. He hasn't been signed not because no one wants to hire a felon, but because no one wants to pay him and waste a roster spot for half the year. If Vick faces a one year suspension after his incarceration, no team will waste time or money waiting for him to (a) get into shape, (b) learn an offense, (c) serve a suspension, and (d) make a roster in the face of withering criticism from the general public.
