Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

The rumor had been that Vick wasn't going to admit to killing dogs or gambling, now that he did it'll be very tough for him to make a comeback. Good riddance.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

Well there is step one. I guess they will revist this once he is out of prison?

Suspending him indefinatley just gets the Falcons out of not having to pay him for the foreseeable future. At what point do they let him go? It will wreak havoc of thier cap considering he still has 7 yrs 117 mil left on his contract.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

the falcons can reclaim his signing bonus, or large chunks of it now with that ruling, meaning they'll have a lot of cap room going forward.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

Actually, he'll probably never play again - period. He's the new Pete Rose for the NFL, and when he finally gets out of jail....he'll probably be on probation. Translation - he can't leave the state (usually) let alone the US. So, playing in Canada is out too. Look at it this way, he can now focus 100% of his efforts on obtaining that ever allusive Citizen of the Year award, or at least open his own personal woodshop to figure out how to design a better system of transporting pot on airplanes. Loser.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

Nothing to comment on. I just did not like the Redskins to Cowboys ratio in this thread.

He'll be the star of the PFL (prison football league). At least he'll be free from getting his salad tossed in prison because of the herpes lol.

Not likely he'll play in Canada either. He probably will not even be allowed to enter Canada with a felony record.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

But you will notice the wording, he is suspended INDEFINITELY, and not a LIFETIME suspension or ban.

That word "indefinitely" means that he can ask for re-admission at a later date after he sentence is fulfilled. Whereas a LIFETIME ban or suspension means he cannot ever return. Goodell left the door open.

I bet we will see Vick trying to make it back to the NFL next year. If not certainly the following year.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

But then doesnt that leave it open for the Commish to say at anytime that the suspension has been changed to a lifetime ban? which i for one would hope he never plays a snap again in any league. If i saw right CFL will not have him either

I agree. I don't believe we have seen the last of Michael Vick. I am a huge VA Tech fan, but I am also a dog lover. I cannot stand the fact that someone would mistreat animals the way Vick has. But, with all of that said, he will try to enter the NFL again, but regardless, his NFL career is ruined.

I wonder how much money he has and will end up with after paying legal fees.
Has he already made enough money to retire to South America and go into dog fighting full time.

Re: Vick suspended indefinitely

made?? wont he have to pay most of that back if Atlanta chooses to make him? so i wouldnt say he has enough to retire, with what he will owe in fines, court cost, attorney fees and payback to the falcons. probably not nearly as much as you think
