Knight believes in giving an athlete a chance to defend him/herself but I am sure the athlete managment folks are scrambling. They write a very tight contract and are supposed to throughly vet backgrounds. I am absolutely confident that if this were known he would not be under contract. The person who 'manages' this contract and handled the background check is doubtless in difficulty.

More good news.

Vick has been named in a handwritten federal civil suit, asking for 63 billion billion dollars...from a federal inmate.

Yes, I mean billion billion. To be delivered specifically by UPS to the front door of his lawyer.

Funny stuff, what people craft together from whats left of their brains...

63 billion might be a little steep but I would be agreeable to awarding the guy 1 billion.(of course a 10% kick back to me)

No, you didnt understand

Its 63 billion billion.

"The amount of $63,000,000,000 billion dollars, backed by gold and silver, to be delivered by UPS * united parcel service..."

Is there even 63 billion billion dollars in circulation, let alone 'backed by gold and silver'?

OK,
He is now guilty and sentenced. Was the sentence fair? To hard? To lenient?

I guess it is fair. Do something on the left coast and you get a day or so. Oh forgot there was a recent 48 day sentence out there (wonder how long that actually will be).

I think it was on the hard side, but in the ballpark of fair. I think the people who think he should get worse are being a little ridiculous. I think he would have gotten only a year or so if he hadn't smoked pot and lied about it to the court. Dumb*ss.

The man has lost his multi-million dollar job, and is going to spend at least 20 months in prison for killing some dogs.

Nothing he did was any worse than what has to happen every single day for you and me to go to McDonald's. If you eat meat, you better not be asking for a tougher sentence than this.

He's a sad, dumb, foolish man. Let him serve his time in peace.

Let the poor devil serve his time in peace.

I believe that he received about the same sentence that the lady who recently shot her pastor husband (in the back of the head while he slept) got.

Mr. Vick will pay his debt to society and hopefully upon his release the poor devil will be a better person.

GOD BLESS

I don't know if the Bears would do that or not...... Aren't they the ones who cut Tank Johnson?

But, agree about the Rex part!
