    Although Not Out Of Bankruptcy Court, Mike Vick Buys His G/F a $90K Porsche

    Great way for all you guys who can't afford a Christmas gift for your Girl

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who is still under the supervision of a bankruptcy court, gave his fiancee a $90,000 Porsche for her birthday, TMZ reported Thursday.

    While it's super dumb, he's going to get PAID this off-season and will be out of bankruptcy soon.

    Well, sadly, that's kind of a lot of people's standpoint financially.

    "oh well, my big paydate is coming soon in the future so it'll be okay..."

    I hope he goes down with a career ending injury to learn a lesson. I think it takes Michael Vick quite a bit to learn his lessons in life...

    I see what you're trying to do man, but its apples and oranges.

    A - Vick is not as bright as the average Joe. Or there never would have been the dog fighting thing, the birthday party incident, etc.

    B - Vick IS gonna get paid, big time. Not "get a raise next year paid" or "getting my tax return paid" ... like seriously millions of dollars paid.

    C - hoping anyone (hawks excluded) gets hurt is a **** move.

    I am sure Vick had no problem getting a loan with his future earnings.

    C. I'll adress C first - I usually agree and you will not find me as one hoping an athlete get injured regularly - if it all. I can honestly say he is my ONLY exception...everytime I watch him play and look down at my dog - I just find my mind going "man I REALLY hopes he breaks something." So, go ahead call me a **** I guess but anyone that can do that to an animal is a bigger **** than i'll EVER be.

    A. Completely agree, but I think we are leaving out other things including getting caught trying to bring weed on an airplane IIRC.

    B. He probably will, but I love the fact you used "IS." Hear me loud and clear bcuz this is the biggest point of my original post: NOTHING IS GUARANTEED TO YOU, LIFE OWES YOU NOTHING. And it's true for everyone. Yes, Vick prolly will get his paper and big money at that this offseason. But you NEVER know...

    Thing I hate about the whole Vick situation is that as bad as what he did was, and it was bad, there are people who are/were playing in the NFL who were implicated in human murders and no one ever seems to talk about that or make a big deal of it.

    there's a pretty good chance that he didn't even pay for it, it was probably part of an endorsement deal.

    Anyway, between his $5M NFL contract, plus other income, I'm guessing he still takes home way more than anyone on this board after the bankruptcy court gets theirs.

    Re: Although Not Out Of Bankruptcy Court, Mike Vick Buys His G/F a $90K Porsche

    To put this in prospective for people, given his salary this would be like a person who makes $100,000 a year buying a less than $5,000 car. (A fair bit lower actually, depending on taxes and so on) He has his bankruptcy of course but this car can't even be called a 'bad' decision compared to some of his others.

    This.

    Also I'm not gonna sit here and say what he did wasn't terrible because it was but he did pay his debt to society. Now he is making the most of his second chance in life which I can applaud. He certainly has no room for error but the guy has done everything right since he got out of prison, he has worked hard and now he is gonna get paid for it. I have no problem with him dishing out for his future wife's car.
