    Falcons can reclaim Vick bonuses

    ESPN - Arbitrator: Falcons can reclaim Vick bonuses - NFL

    The world keeps crashing down around Michael Vick. Can't say I feel bad for him.

    The biggest thing isn't the act, which was very bad. But the bigger thing for me, was denying it all the way through, getting upset for being accused of something he did in fact do. And only coming clean once his "friends" rolled over on him.

    America is pretty forgiving, just tell the truth and fix your problems. Sounds simple to me.

    I think the new NFL under Goodell is great. The is like Chizik. Its his way or the highway! He wants a product that is not tainted.

    Vick should pay it all back and be a man about it!

    The positive test for pot last month doesn't help him out at all either. If he's ever let back into the NFL I'm betting it will be at least 2-3 seasons before they'll even consider it.

    Re: Falcons can reclaim Vick bonuses

    Speaking of Vick, did anyone see this, i heard about it last night:

    SI.com - NCAA Football - Texas Tech bans*Vick-themed T-shirts - Tuesday October 9, 2007 5:05PM

    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Texas Tech has banned the sale of a T-shirt bearing the likeness of Michael Vick hanging the dog mascot of rival Texas A&M.

    The red and black shirts, with text that says "VICK 'EM" on the front in an apparent reference to the Aggies' slogan "Gig 'em," was created by a Tech student who was trying to sell them before Saturday's game in Lubbock.
    The back of the shirt shows a football player wearing the No. 7 Vick jersey holding a rope with an image of the mascot Reveille at the end of a noose. Vick, who faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting charge, is suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

    Tech officials late Tuesday announced the fraternity that sold the shirts was suspended temporarily and will face judicial review for allegedly violating the solicitation section of the students' code of conduct.

    The school said it wouldn't allow the sale on campus of items that are "derogatory, inflammatory, insensitive, or in such bad taste."

    No more shirts are being produced, the school said in a release.

    A&M officials, in a statement, thanked Tech administrators for "their response and action regarding this matter."

    The creator of the shirt, Geoffrey Candia, declined to comment in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Tuesday. He said he may make a statement after meeting with the dean of students Tuesday.

    He did not return a message left on his cell phone late Tuesday.

    He told The Battalion, A&M's newspaper, for Tuesday's editions that the university prohibited sale of the shirts on campus through his fraternity. He said he originally had wanted to give 50 percent of the proceeds to an animal defense league in Lubbock "because we knew there would be a controversy about the shirts, you know, animal rights, stuff like that."

    Candia told the newspaper about 300 had been sold. He had hoped 500 would be sold before Saturday's game.

    In a posting on his Facebook site at about 4 a.m. Tuesday, Candia wrote: "a little tshirt get aggies all worked up... its a t-shirt people!"

    Re: Falcons can reclaim Vick bonuses

    Do you think he actually has the money to pay them back? You know what happens when some of these athletes get unreal amounts of money, they blow it. (Some of them literally.)


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Even worse is that the Falcons want $20 million back from him. He probably only saw half of that money in the first place after taxes, agent cut, etc. Imagine getting a check for $10 million and then your employer asking for $20 million back. You just lost $10 million on the deal because the government sure as hell won't give you their cut back.

    That was a big deal in the Ricky Williams thing.
