    Emailer said the Falcons or his next team should keep Vick on a "short" leash!!

    So in other words, he should be ready to go for the Miami Dolphins just in time for the 2010 season... What a rushing tandem that will be between Ricky Williams and Vick if Williams can just leave his dreads on his head instead of breaking them off and smoking them, and Vick can just stay away from man's best friend...

    Why speculation of him going to the fish?

    1. Desperate need for a QB (probably won't be fixed by 2010)
    2. See Ricky Williams

    The fish are so bad right now I'm sure they'll be desperate enough to take a chance on him.

    23 mo is actually more than most expected. I think most were expecting a year to 18mo.

    Re: Vick to get 23 months in prison

    Is anyone saying how much of that sentence he's likely to actually serve?

    I believe he has to at least serve 80% before he has a chance to get out.

    Re: Vick to get 23 months in prison


    I'm always amazed how "apologetic" most criminals get after being caught!

    He knew he was going to get "the hammer" from this judge relative to his sentencing because his cohorts did...that is why he actually reported to prison to start "serving his time" sometime back in November.

    He'll probably come back in better shape than he has been in...it seems like most prisons have turned into "glorified workout facilities". Since he won't be able to partake of his favorite entertainment (dog fighting)...he will likely spend that time in the gym.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Vick goes to prison for 23months; 3 yrs probation

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    and meanwhile o.j. walks the streets. look, i love dogs, and think it's a terrible thing what he did to them. but come on. o.j. murdered 2 people and is out holding people at gunpoint for his sports memorabilia, and we are treating vick like the second coming of pontius pilate. again-i think vick should be punished and punished sternly, but if o.j. simpson got a second chance, then i think he deserves one as well. i seriously don't remember people being upset when o.j. was ruled innocent-weren't there riots because people were so happy he was found innocent? correct me if i am wrong.

    O.J. didn't get a second chance because we all felt sorry for him, he had a good lawyer and the prosecution was ********. Michael Vick will get his second chance, it'll just come in 23 months.
