Michael Vick To Give Back 20 Million Bones!


A special arbitrator in the Michael Vick case has told the disgraced QB that he must pay back $20 Million to the Atlanta Falcons that was given to him as a signing bonus back in 2004. The arbitrator ruled that Vick knew he was in violation of league and team policies when he signed the 10 year $130 Million deal. This is just the first step however, the NFL Players Association has already said they will appeal the decision. I understand that the Union has to fight for this player, but its gotta be like defending your kid even though you know he is the neighborhood bully. Michael Vick deserves every ruling and judgement against him, not because of what he did, but rather because of the arrogance and stupidity it took to get involved in this underground world when he had everything he could ever want or need. I understand that this may have been apart of how he grew up, but come on already. When you rise to the top, you bring others with you and teach them, not allow them to bring you back down to their level. Its sad, Vick is an incredible athlete and I hope that he will be able to show us that he will change.

Yes he is indeed an incredible athelete but he is also incredibly stupid. He is like a lot of black atheletes, get a contract, buy a white woman, and think you are above the law. Maybe he used OJ for his role model ???????????

Its not a race issue, its the difference between new money and old money. Vick, Britney Spears, ________ (insert star here) when they come from one economic situation and then all of a sudden can have whatever, they think they are invincible. Less stupidity and more environment.

The problem with the establishment is when someone is down, we keep kicking. Micheal Vick is a successful African-American who made a mistake. When do we stop dragging him in the mud? Is racism that deeply embeddd in our psyche that we can't forgive? If he was white would this situation be swept under the rug?

We stop when he begins to atone for his errors. I can say that he has attended classes with PETA. So his atonement is beginning already in my mind. As far as it being about race, I think race does play a big part in whether he is forgiven, unfortuneatly.
