Over and done with. YAAAWWWNNN! When he gets out there will be another thread about "Should he play or not" He was found guilty and sentenced. So be it...Amen and so forth. Next thread please.

I think with this last big bust that the Feds had in the steroid thing from China will be sufficient to supply names for players. But then looking at some of the cheerleaders of football....maybe steroids aren't all that bad :))) After re-reading this I wanted it noted that there was no pun intended in the "big bust" part above.

Vick initially denied any knowledge of the enterprise, then pledged after he was charged that he would fight to clear his name. After Phillips and two other co-defendants pleaded guilty, Vick followed suit and admitted in a written plea to bankrolling the enterprise and helping to kill eight dogs that performed poorly. Urall. The above is what I was going by. I'm not sure if there were more dogs involved or what the whole status of this implies. The article also suggests that if he shows up dirty again....Well back to the 'ol crossbars hotel. I kind of figure that he knows he's gone So what the hell, Why not. but in his stupidity he probably didn't think about this adding more time. What ever the Judge was going to give him I think just got a little longer.

Just had an afterthought. Maybe Vick and O.J. can get a cell together and could start their own team.

After that he still faces charges in Virginia which is one of the states with the harshest penalties against animal cruelty and endangerment. One thing I can not understand though is why they are not bringing charges in Va. against Vick for the killing of the dogs- each count could be up to 5 years in prison- and Vick has admitted participating in six or eight dog killings. He already pleaded guilty to these charges in his federal indictment and can't be charged with the same crime twice.I'm no where to understanding the laws such as a Lawyer does... But it seems as if his Lawyers knew what they were doing in having admit to the killings of the dogs in the Federal indictment and in doing so the Federal boys are not pursueing the gambling and crossing state lines with the gambling enterprise and thusly excaping the Gambling and Racketeering charges and also elimatinating the additional charges in Va. which does have harsh animal cuelty punishments. Like I said. I'm no lawyer and could be, and likely am, wrong.

Ya just can't fix stupid.... This should really help a Judge known for harsh penalties to feel compassion. Flaunting your nose at a judge's release restrictions is not a wise thing to do.

Yes the clubs should. Also in baseball on the field there should be 3 Black, 3 white and 3 Hispanic players and an occasional oriental of which 4 should be men and 4 would be women and the 9th player should be a switch hitter. (pun fully intended)....Yeah Right!!! Race should not be the main determining factor in anything. In fact it should not be a factor at all. Hire the best person possible regardless of Race, religion, creed or sexual preference. We make the teams out by hiring the best possible player, coaches and management should be done likewise. in fact. as for as players go, you don't even have to be from this country nor even have to speak english. Right person for right job. Period.

Guess as the saying goes. You just can't fix stupid. Wonder how many months this will drag out? But Las Vegas is known for thier shows as well as thier gambling.As for as O.J. goes, I guess some people think they can get away with murder. (oooops, already has)

At last! A good story about someone. The sad part is that when I done some soul searching on my own part is that I came up short. I myself would have went for the money. It is GOOD to see someone else be a fan of the game and do a good deed. Great Story.

Take away New Englands franchise and have them move the team to Montana. That way everyone in Mont. could go to the game and they could all fit in one stadium.

To add to my last comment... A loss of the Patriot's take of the revenue for that day should be taken away and donated to the retirement fund of the players and used for medical benefits for those that have sustained long term injuries.

I'll bet this has more than one team scrambling to clean up their own house. My opinion would be a substantial fine, Lose of a 1st round pick, and B/B suspended for 4 games It's not some camera man's responsibility to maintain the integrity of the league. If his bosses tell him to tape the sidelines, he tapes the sidelines. It will be interesting if Goodell is going to be as harsh on teams as he is on the players. It has to be a top pick or it is useless. Second day picks don't make the Patriots team anyway. I have never heard of a forfeit in the NFL, and I doubt it will happen now. . I agree with this. If the cameraman objected, he probably would have received his last paycheck as he was walking out the door. And I don't think a forfeiture of the game would be neither likely nor feasible. The players and the fans never did anything wrong. But the owner and the coaches that knew of the preceedings should be fined severely. And a suspension of B/B. But as in all cases, we should wait until all the facts come out and I'm sure there will be an investigation into other teams as well.

When something like this happens it seems to make all the stuff about Vick, Pac-man and Ankiel seem almost trival. My thoughts, heart and prayers go out to the Everett family. May God Bless them.

Are we talking about Babe as he was then or if he would have been brought up with the conditioning and the expierence of having been brought up with the system we have now? I recently read an article about a scientific study that was done about his eye/hand coordination and it was phenominal according to the study. "I feel that Babe Ruth's contributions to the game of baseball merit more than just naming the MVP award or having a Babe Ruth day at the ball park. I think he did a great service to the game by helping to bring back people at a time when perhaps their view of baseball had been tarnished by the BlackSox scandal. His place in the record books should stand by themselves as achievements meriting retirement of his number. I also don't feel that retiring Ruth's number dilutes the importance of Jackie Robinson's number. Both were compelling figures of their times whose contributions, while different of course, still transended the game. I'm not arguing the social importance of Robinson's effect, just that the two were different and equal" I also agree with THX-1138 in the above paragraph. I would not be against retiring #3. Each man stands on his own merits, strengths and degree of greatness. Neither would be taking away from the other and that any normal, intelligent individual would or should be able to differentiate between the reasons. Plus I'd hate to see Babe playing against the players of today if he were alive. A 112 yr. old man in uniform would not be a pleasant sight.

Sorry Jerseygirl, but, that was the way I was taught. Guess I'll have to start a post on hanging my teacher.
