    LOL...this ranks up there with Nate Newton-6 time pro bowler who got busted with a couple hundred pounds of pot and served time in the federal pen.
    What sets him apart is that he’s big, and he can skate, and he can protect the puck from anyone. If you’re trying to get it and he doesn’t want you to get, you’re not going to. -Justin Williams on Kopitar

    This one looks like he's going to jail. They've got the what went on, the kennels and the "arena's", the names of the people involved and the dogs names as well. Mike had a run in with a water bottle with a secret compartment last year as well, but this one he's going to do federal time for.

    Vick is in deep doodo on a couple of fronts. First from what I have read, Virginia is not where you want an indictment from the Feds coming from. They have a very strong conviction rate and take cases to trail very quickly. Another problem for Vick is that he also lied to the commish earlier this spring when he said he didn't know anything about the dog fighting going on his property. All this is speculation, but the Feds in VA think they have enough on Vick to put him away, and they are moving quickly.

    One of many Atlanta Journal Constitution Articles

    from this article..

    RICHMOND, Va. —The judge assigned to preside over Michael Vick's sensational dog-fighting case is a tough jurist who has a history of exceeding federal sentencing guidelines to make a point, criminal defense attorneys here said today.

    Some pretty gruesome details regarding the case.

    Snippets from http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2940065

    NFL star Michael Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot.

    The indictment states that dogs fought to the death -- or close to it

    "Some of the grisly details in these filings shocked even me, and I'm a person who faces this stuff every day," he said. "I was surprised to see that they were killing dogs by hanging them and one dog was killed by slamming it to the ground. Those are extremely violent methods of execution -- they're unnecessary and just sick."

    In March 2003, after a pit bull from Bad Newz Kennels lost in a fight, it said Peace consulted with Vick about the losing dog's condition, then executed it by wetting it with water and electrocuting it.

    Purses for the fights ranged from hundreds of dollars to the thousands, and participants and spectators placed side bets, the document said.

    At the start, authorities seized 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment commonly used in dogfighting. About half the dogs were tethered to car axles with heavy chains that allowed the dogs to get close to each other, but not to have contact -- an arrangement typical for fighting dogs, according to the search warrant affidavit.

    If convicted, Vick and the others could face up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution.
    If convicted he better do jail time.

    I hate to rush to judgment without knowing the facts, but **** that scumbag piece of ****. I hope one of those dogs rips his balls off, and then ass rapes him.

    Same here. But after reading the above articles about these poor animals, it makes me want to tear Michael Vick apart, have him locked away forever. **** Ron Mexico.

    Fighting dogs is an ugly, brutal business, and none of this is to excuse anything that may or may not have happened. But whether Vick is found guilty or not, the self-righteousness of the media and the many Vick-bashers is staggering.

    American culture celebrates violent sports--especially football--and is insensitive to the consequences that the weekly scrum has on the bodies and minds of its players. We love a sport where any given play can be a player's last. We accept that after 44-year-old former Philadelphia Eagle Andre Waters committed suicide, the autopsy revealed that his brain resembled someone with early-stage Alzheimer's due to repeated concussions. We ignore that a Hall of Fame running back, the once-unstoppable Earl Campbell, can barely get out of a car without assistance. We forget that Johnny Unitas, the greatest quarterback to play the game, couldn't grip a football by the time of his death.
