    I am always clinically amused when I see a "statement" from someone who has their head so far up their rear in the first place..


    Common sense would tell you that siding with an AH like Vick will get you into trouble.

    Two,
    Aside from Pat Haden back in the day, THere are about two current FB players who could write, edit and punctuate an eloquent statement like that.

    "I's gots to make a release to get those dog people off my back."

    I would love a gig writing lame excuses for famous AHs...

    Three,
    To release a statement like that is a slap in the face of the people who are following the story,

    Four,
    I wonder what a PETA wacko looks like at your front door at three A.M.!

    Five,
    I can guarantee you that there are at least three Dog Loving Defensive Players that ran to look at the '07 schedule after they heard CPs original statement.

    This gives me more reasons to root against the Redskins this year.

    The reason suspension with pay for one year would be in reality a harsh punishment for Vick is that he couldn't realistically challenge it.

    In addition, his FB skills would rust, as he couldn't play or practice, he would be out of the spotlight, and it is highly doubtful that his FB career would ever recover.

    Please, if your dog is arthritic look into getting it Elk Velvet Antler. Look up my posts on it, PM me, or look it up on a search engine; but please if you love your dog and want it to live many more years consider this option. I've seen so many posts on here about dogs needlessly suffering. I can't make a new post about EVA every time so this plea is going here. EVA also helps with other ailments such as anemia.

    Vick Update

    This is really long and I didn't even read all of it, but I figured this was appropriate for those who are interested


    Feds return to Vick's property
    Agents investigating dog fighting search QB's home
    Posted: Friday July 6, 2007 11:58AM; Updated: Friday July 6, 2007 9:12PM

    SURRY, Va. (AP) -- A property owned by Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was used as the "main staging area for housing and training the pit bulls involved" in an alleged dogfighting operation, according to court documents.

    The papers, filed by federal authorities, give details for the first time about what authorities contend was a long-running dogfighting venture. Vick is not named in the documents.

    On Friday, federal agents searched the property for a second time, using a backhoe to dig in an area about 10 feet wide by 20 feet wide. They finished their work at about 4:30 p.m. and declined to answer reporters' questions as they left.

    The documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Richmond and obtained Friday by The Associated Press contain the address of the Vick property that has been at the center of the investigation.

    According to the documents, dog fights have been sponsored by "Bad Newz Kennels" at the property since at least 2002. For the events, participants and dogs traveled from South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, New York, Texas and other states.

    Members of the venture also knowingly transported, delivered and received dogs for animal fighting, the documents state.

    Fifty-four pit bulls were recovered from the property during searches in April, along with a "rape stand," used to hold dogs in place for mating; an electric treadmill modified for dogs; and a bloodied piece of carpeting, the documents said.

    The documents said the fights usually occurred late at night or in the early morning and would last several hours. The winning dog would win from "100's up to 1,000's of dollars," and participants and spectators also bet on the dogfights.

    Before fights, the participating dogs of the same sex would be weighed and bathed, according to the filings. Opposing dogs would be washed to remove any poison or narcotic placed on the dog's coat that could affect the other dog's performance. Sometimes participants would not feed a dog before the fight to "make it more hungry for the other dog," the documents said.

    Fights would end when one dog died or with the surrender of the losing dog, which was sometimes put to death by drowning, strangulation, hanging, gun shot, electrocution or some other method, according to the documents. The property has an aboveground swimming pool, and investigators were seen looking into the pool Friday.

    During a June search of the property, investigators uncovered the graves of seven pit bulls that were killed by members of "Bad Newz Kennels" following sessions to test whether the dogs would be good fighters, the documents said.

    Members of "Bad Newz Kennels" also sponsored and exhibited fights in other parts of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey and other states, the filings said.

    On Vick's Web site, he lists his birthplace as Newport News, Va., "a.k.a. BadNews."

    Friday, federal agents used shovels and heavy equipment to search the Vick property, where an informant told authorities as many as 30 dogs could be buried.

    A backhoe-front loader was brought in and used to excavate a cleared area on the property. The material found to be of interest was transferred into numerous large, ice-filled coolers and loaded into a rental truck, which left the property.

    Some of the investigators wore T-shirts reading: "Federal Agent USDA-OIG."

    An Associated Press reporter and photographer viewing the investigation from a helicopter could not clearly identify the evidence being collected.

    Investigators were digging in an area about 50 yards behind the large white house on the property. About 15 people could be seen on the property, which includes several kennels surrounded by pens made of metal fencing, other kennels and outbuildings.

    Located in southeast Virginia, the expansive property has a metal gate at the entrance and a white plastic fence around the perimeter. The fence and a large two-story building painted black behind the home obscured the work of investigators.

    More than 15 vehicles were on the property, including the rental truck and at least one Virginia State Police evidence collection truck.

    Corinne Geller, a spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police, said state authorities were working with federal investigators in an "assistance capacity."

    Vick has said he rarely visited the property. No charges have been filed.

    During an April 25 raid at the property, about half the dogs were tethered to car axles with heavy chains that allowed them to get close to each other, but not to have contact, an arrangement typical for fighting dogs, according to an affidavit.

    Later, Surry County officials secured a search warrant based on an informant's information about dogs being buried on the property, but never acted on it because prosecutor Gerald G. Poindexter said he had concerns with the wording of the document.

    On June 7, the day that warrant expired, federal officials executed their own with the help of state police investigators.

    Poindexter publicly questioned the federal government's interest in a dogfighting case. He suggested Vick's celebrity was the draw and raised race as a possible motivation. Poindexter and Vick are black, as is Sheriff Harold Brown.

    Poindexter, on vacation in Louisiana, said by telephone he was unaware of Friday's search and was still pursuing what he called a parallel investigation. He said he assumed Surry County and federal officials eventually will share their evidence.

    Vick initially said he had no idea the property might have been used in a criminal enterprise and blamed family members for taking advantage of his generosity. He also put the house up for sale and reportedly sold it quickly, although there is no record that the sale has closed. Vick has since declined to talk about the investigation.

    THe thing that bugs me is that "Vick was not named".

    So why bother? Everyone goes down with the ship EXCEPT the captain.

    Vick is "named" now!!



    TUESDAY, July 17, 2007 ...

    RICHMOND, Va. - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury on charges related to illegal dogfighting.

    Vick and three others were charged with violating federal laws against competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines.
