    NAACP official: Vick shouldn't be banned from NFL

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/law/08/22/vick/index.html

    The head of the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP said Wednesday that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has made mistakes but that they should not cost him his football career with the NFL.
    Vick is expected to plead guilty Monday to federal conspiracy charges in an illegal dogfighting operation.
    R.L. White, president of the Atlanta chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said his organization does not condone dogfighting or any other illegal activity, but he told reporters that Vick should be given a chance to redeem himself.
    "In some instances, I believe Michael Vick has received more negative press than if he would've killed a human being," White said. "The way he is being persecuted, he wouldn't have been persecuted that much had he killed somebody."
    White said he believes Vick cut a deal rather than roll the dice on a trial and take a chance on being found guilty, but "whatever he's done wrongly, he needs to pay for it.
    White also said he didn't understand the uproar over dogfighting, when hunting deer and other animals is perfectly acceptable.

    Whatever. Kids nowadays are away from God and onto these idiots as mentors and icons. I guess he doesn't care what kids these days are taught.

    What's next? Will they argue that they are trying to control the dog population through natural selection and dog fighting?

    Ridiculous. I think someone needs to take that guy deer hunting and lose his ass in the woods.

    Dress him in brown, put a white shoe print on his ass, and tell him that antlered helmets are a MUST for deer hunters. Then lose him.

    Why is the NAACP weighing in on this? Is this going to turn into a racial card? Is the next thing Vick spills out of his mouth that we are picking on him because he is black? Then he will print a book, "If I ran a dog fighting ring this is how I might have done it". He must be enamored with the OJ defense.

    Why the hell not?? If we did something like this our career would sure as hell be up in smoke!! We would hear all the screaming about how we need to see the other side of the bars for a looong time!

    If he can slaughter dogs at will just because they don't perform, and do it in such a cruel and inhumane way then he is capable of the same violence on humans. Look at the statistics of abusers and how they start with animals before they move to children or adults.

    "At this point, you're not looking at guilt or innocence," White said, referring to the possible harsher sentence Vick could have received had he taken his case to trial and been found guilty. "You're thinking, 'What I better do is cut my losses and take a plea.' But if he saw this as the best thing to do at this point for his future, then I think he made the correct choice."
    White said he regretted that the plea deal will mean all the facts of the case might never be known.

    So Vick is COMPLETELY innocent, and he is being set up and railroaded by the "friends"??? If there is more to know then I would assume that any media outlet would set a microphone up near a stand and let him get it off his chest. The only thing is that Vick wants nothing to do with that because the spin he put on it so far has helped him and if the true extent of things were known the uproar would get simply DEAFENING!!

White, president of the NAACP's Atlanta chapter. "We further ask the NFL, Falcons, and the sponsors not to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to fans all over this country."

    +1...Because he's a SPORTS ICON! Enamored by fans who wouldn't know a real athlete if it bit them on the ass. Over paid and probably, and I mean probably under educated. (yes I know there are exceptions) All hail the "gladiator" who can carry a ball from one end of the field to the other. Big deal.
    Maybe he'll be a commentator.
    I mean for real. It's a game. A GAME. Entertainment. Competetion. But because he is idolized and paid millions of dollars he believed he was exempt from mainstream behaivor. You know behavior that is considered legal.
    Sports figures, celebrities, high dollar politicians and business people. The whole thing makes me sick. I mean this case went to CONGRESS. Crazy.
    Rant off.

    Let him return to his career after a few pitties get the chance to even the score first. Make sure you put him in the prisonyard butt naked and coated with raw meat. Make sure they are very hungry pitties too. Maybe seizures from other dog fighting rings. Then I'll be willing to see him return to his football career. If he's still in one piece that is.

    Vick officially pleas guilty.

    Vick answered yes.
