Re: Man shot after confrontation with Vick at Michael Vick's 30th birthday party

What I don't understand, and as someone else mentioned, why couldn't Vick just spin this another way: Have the party at Disneyland or Applebees? Sounds corny, but that's a part of the PR game.

For the record, I'm not hating on Vick or wishing him any ill, but he's just stupid.

Re: Man shot after confrontation with Vick at Michael Vick's 30th birthday party

I hear you 12th. But Vick doesn't give a damn about his PR campaign. He was all gun ho last year when it came to saying the right things and all, but so many of Vick's problems come in the offseason, Dog fighting BS not included as that was year round crime, I am talking about his other off field issues.

He really does not seem and never has seemed sincere about his rehibilitaion or lack there of. BTW I never really got a sensse of a guy who was sorry for what he had done, just shocked that he got in trouble for it. Then coming out of jail he just said the right things to get his real money making scheme back on track. Posing as an NFL QB.

I do truly hope the guy gets it some day, but it hasn't quite sunk in to him yet how to handle yourself as an adult.

There are some elements about this latest Vick saga that just dosen't make sense to me.

One would think there would be bad blood between Vick and Quanis Phillips as a result of the dog fighting incident which all but ruined Vick's football career and cost him more than twenty months in federal prison. Unless that bad blood has received a transfusion (which would have required contact or communication of some sort) the question in my mind is, why would Phillips want to be around a man he virtually snitched on and caused so much agony? I can see no reason why Phillips would feel the need to show up at a Vick party where he might not be well received unless he felt reasonably assured there would be no repercussion. Or, did he go there with the intention of settling an old score with Vick that maybe we don't know about?

Thats a good question. If MV tried to keep away from this guy, and the guy is still trying to get back in MV's good graces and MV doesn't want anything to do w/ him maybe the guy is asking for trouble. You sell your friend out to save your own self and expect to be welcomed back dont expect a warm reception.

Now shooting him is going over board. There is no reason for that whoever shot should have just punched him like a man.

There is one other element that warrant's mentioning, why won't Phillips reveal to the authorities who shot him? I'm sure he has a good idea.

Re: Man shot after confrontation with Vick at Michael Vick's 30th birthday party

He probably got shot because he was probably labeled as a snitch by everyone he hung out with after reports got released that he gave info to the feds about Vick's dogfighting operation. Snitches get stitches and that's what he got. Idk why he was still trying to go there in the first place, dude had to know he wouldn't be welcomed with open arms.

Not even. Vick can't have parties, period. Not at a club, not at home, not at a Chucky Cheese. Whether he's involved or not, he needs to keep it to a few people over for dinner and Netflix. Or at least that's how I would've lived my life after getting the second chance of a lifetime.

Re: Man shot after confrontation with Vick at Michael Vick's 30th birthday party

Source: Vick wasn't in D.C. last night

Posted by Mike Florio on July 5, 2010 8:41 AM ET

On Sunday, Robert Littal of BlackSportsOnline.com reported that Eagles quarterback Mike Vick decided to follow up the "All White" commemoration of his 30th birthday with an "All White" celebration of the 234th birthday of the entity that put him behind bars for dogfighting -- the United States of America.

Via an update to his initial post, Littal reports that Marcus Vick was at the party.

Via a phone call I received while honoring America by catching at least a dozen fish swimming in one of her rivers, Mike Vick did not attend the party.

Per a league source, Mike Vick went to a barbecue in the Philadelphia area.

Our guess? Marcus Vick hatched the idea for a series of "All White" parties, and Mike agreed, initially. Given the aftermath of Mike Vick's birthday party, he bailed. But it apparently was too late to pull the plug on the party.

Which proves two things: (1) he has learned not to host parties while on probation; and (2) his decision to host a birthday party open to members of the public (including convicted felons) was one of the worst he had made since his dog yard in Virginia was discovered by authorities.

Phillips refuses to cooperate with authorities and reveal who the shooter was. Will be interesting to see where this case goes from here.

Snitches probably don't have very healthy lives in prison, so I am guessing Phillips probably learned a lesson or two about cooperating.
