I hate the way he allowed his dogs to b tortured when they were through fighting. Fighting is bad enough... but to hang, electrocute, burn a doggie. It just makes no sense to me. I love dogs so much.

But on the other hand these guys can be arrested for domestic violence and the league does nothing - considers it a private matter. Has a player ever been suspended or let go because he beat his wife or girlfriend?

Michael Vick (Photo Getty) Michael Vick pled not culprit with the charges relating to the participation of combat of dogs. Vick was presented in court at 15h00 in a commercial vehicle black sport. It was hooted by the hundreds of people present. Vick and three other individuals were shown to have violated the American federal laws against the combat of dogs, to have provided and have involved pitbulls with an aim of leading them to fight, and of having carried out these activities in more than one State. More details to come



Here the rest of the article.


Vick and three other individuals were shown to have violated the American federal laws against the combat of dogs, to have provided and have involved pitbulls with an aim of leading them to fight, and of having carried out these activities in more than one State. All the defendants must return their passport, they cannot move away from their immediate environment without the permission of the court and they can neither sell nor to hold dogs. Moreover, Vick had to give very allowed of owner of kennels or breeding of dogs. The owner of Falcons, Arthur Blank, wanted to suspend it for four matches, the maximum allowed to a team of the NFL, but the league required of him to wait. Blank then suggested with the player rather concentrating on his legal problems than on football.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - One of Michael Vick's co-defendants pleaded guilty Monday to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges and agreed to fully co-operate with the government in its prosecution of the Atlanta Falcons star and two other men.

Tony Taylor, 34, who will be sentenced Dec. 14, said he was not promised any specific sentence in return for his co-operation.

Taylor faces a maximum of five years in prison and a US$250,000 fine, but federal sentencing guidelines likely will call for less. The guideline range will be determined by the court's probation office, and U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson can depart from that range if he finds aggravating or mitigating circumstances.

''You're pleading guilty and taking your chances, right?'' Hudson asked Taylor.

Taylor responded, ''Yes.''





Taylor had the same answer when Hudson asked: ''You have agreed to co-operate fully with the United States, is that right?''

Taylor, of Hampton, entered his plea to conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities, and conspiring to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture.

Vick and two other co-defendants pleaded not guilty last week to the same charges.

The written plea agreement requires Taylor to ''testify truthfully and completely at any grand juries, trials or other proceedings.'' It says any truthful information provided by Taylor cannot form the basis of a stiffer sentence or additional charges.

Prosecutors already have said a superseding indictment will be issued next month, which could mean more charges against Vick and the remaining co-defendants.

Taylor and his lawyer, Stephen A. Hudgins, refused to answer reporters' questions as they left the federal courthouse after the 15-minute hearing.

Prosecutors claimed in a July 17 indictment that Taylor found the Surry County property that Vick purchased and used as the site of ''Bad Newz Kennels,'' a dogfighting enterprise.

''The `Bad Newz Kennels' operation and gambling moneys were almost exclusively funded by Vick,'' a statement of facts supporting the plea agreement and signed by Taylor says.

The statement also lists several dogfights that Taylor claims Vick attended in Virginia and other states. The principals in the dogfighting ring split any winnings, and Taylor - who spent most of his time raising and training the pit bulls - used his share for living expenses, according to the statement.

Taylor also confirmed the indictment's claim that he helped purchase pit bulls and killed at least two dogs that fared poorly in test fights.

According to the 18-page indictment, the dogfighting ring executed underperforming dogs by drowning, hanging and other brutal means. It alleges that the fights offered purses as high as $26,000.

Taylor left the enterprise after a falling out with co-defendant Quanis L. Phillips and others in September 2004, according to the statement of facts.

The grisly details outlined in the indictment have fuelled protests and public outrage against Vick. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has banned Vick from the Falcons' training camp while the league investigates.

Vick and Purnell A. Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach, and Phillips, 28, of Atlanta, are scheduled for trial Nov. 26. They remain free without bond.

Looks like Vick is going to plead guilty. Only a month ago he said he was looking forward to going to court to prove his innocence.

Vick to possibly miss the next two seasons in the NFL. He maybe back in 2009 or even 2010 from what the reports are saying. Such an exciting player to watch has derailed his career over this stupid dog fighting. Just do not get it. :doh1:

FYI, Vick is still in Madden 08 (not that it's any good :P)

hell he's still fantasy football eligible.. now if they count his stats in the prison league... I dunno

I'd love to see the league grow a set and ban this guy for life as a message to ALL the players and sports that they mean it
but they won't :P

NO CFL.As long a player is suspended by the NFL, a NFL Player can't go to the CFL(Remember the Williams fiasco?)Governos voted for that rule..

Well, the CFL will not take Vick during his suspension. Since the Williams incident, the CFL agreed with the NFL to respect their suspensions.

If you are talking about after he gets out of jail, the NFL drops his suspension and he is out of game shape, that might be a different story.

CFL? Oh well, there's a lot of players who have been questionned about that question"Would you accept Vick after his prison time"?Lot of Als players said "No and there would be a little tension btw us and him..."

Maybe a team will try to take him after his jail time and his suspension with the NFL is over..Maybe.
