Yeah, I guess now that he won’t be able to perform as well now that he’s injured he’ll have to kill himself. You know, just like those poor dogs he hanged and electrocuted to death because they got hurt or were too afraid to fight.

I hope he’s in constant pain and his career ruined. Bastard.

Eagles QB Vick has rib cartilage injury

Michael Vick got a warning from teammate DeSean Jackson right before he was injured.

“I told him: ‘Don’t take no hits like that. We can’t afford you taking hits,'” Jackson said. “He’s just trying to make things happen.”

Vick didn’t listen, and he ended up with a rib cartilage injury that may force him to miss at least Philadelphia’s next game at San Francisco.

“This is going to be one of those day-to-day, week-to-week (injuries),” Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday. “We’ll just see how it goes and how he feels along the way.”

…Reid wouldn’t rule Vick out, but it would seem unlikely he could play given the painful nature of his injury. Reid said Vick doesn’t have any broken bones, though the cartilage between his second and third rib might be cracked.

“He’s sore, he’s sore,” Reid said. “It’s up high in that second and third rib. And that’s what it is and you have ligaments and you have cartilage up there.”

    Love the sarcasm Tammy, it’s what kept me coming to Newsmax and FrontPage for more (10 or so years ago). I mean, I got more out of the columns than that, but I like being entertained too… and you do all that 5-6 days a week. 🙂

    I’m still not clear on how Vick was allowed to be reinstated into the NFL, and Rush was prevented from investing in the NFL.

    Does this mean we get to put him down? Yeah, I know.. I’m mean. But I agree with the sentiments above expressed by Mark Twain.

    I’m right there with ya Tammy. Vick is a scumbag.

    whoaaa guys, what are you talking about? Vick committed a despicable crime and he did his time in big boy prison. He has repaid his debt to society, was approved by the NFL to play and picked up by the Eagles. It’s good to see him get his act together and make a comeback. I hope his heart heart has changed and he goes on to succeed in the NFL.

    Just saying…. I am certainly grateful I don’t get what I deserve and wouldn’t wish that on anybody else either: That job is way above my pay grade!

    I never heard that Michael Vick was getting therapy for his sadism and abuse issues. I still want to know if he wets the bed and sets fires. He may have done his time in prison, he certainly EARNED his time in prison. Anyone who was abusing helpless animals in this way may be doing the same to other helpless creatures around him. I never heard or read any interviews with girlfriends: has he abused them too? If he has children, does he or will he abuse them? Unless he truly has changed, we’ll see him involved in scandal again, related to some violent incident. Real men protect the helpless. They don’t hang them up with coat hangers and beat them with baseball bats and electrocute them.

    Sorry, but Vick should have never been back on the field. Though I believe people can change, his best evidence of being reformed (or transformed, rather) would have been to stay out of the public eye and repay his debt to society by working w/ animals (under supervision, of course) or helping at risk kids who imitated his actions. In other words: spending his life reeling in the damage he caused to others. A one year stint in jail proves nothing especially when all the bells and whistles he had before are given back to him on a silver platter.

    When the Vick horrors were exposed, some of my high school male students were ticked off – not at him, though. They didn’t see the problem with what he did – and I’ll spare you all the rest of what they began discussing as a result. I will just add that it involved having an intervention from the guidance counselor, their parole officers and the state. Someone like Vick being idolized for being ‘gangsta’ is hardly the sort of person who should be rewarded with a return to the field.

    It’s really quite sickening that anyone would want to see him back in a lucrative career. Frankly, the NFL behaved very much like the political machines we constantly complain about: any controversy is good controversy – and it draws money. It says something about us as a society, too, when people are desensitized to the point they will conveniently dismiss his actions, pay to watch him and subsequently, continue churning out a very well-to-do existence for Vick and the machine that feeds him.

    “Reformed, paid his criminal debt – Vick”. Yes, he served his time and that allows him to be a part of the public again and get a job. I have no problem with that but that doesn’t mean I have to forgive and forget. I don’t buy that he is reformed. It is not believeable, in my logical mind that someone can go from hanging and electrocuting dogs by his own hand and then because he was forced to serve some time in jail that he is personally reformed. I don’t buy it, but it doesn’t matter. I don’t have to like him or believe him or even care about him just because he served his mandatory sentence in jail. I think he is and always will be a scumbag and I wish him a miserable existance.

    Well I say we all pitch in and help him with his injuries AND Obama, with his depression. Perhaps we could send them some sleeping pills or a rope or gun? Just to help of course.

  10. DianeRoberts says:

    Vick should rot in hell forever. Hopefully he and many others like him will.

    Please pray that ;aw Enforcement Officials locate the evil monsters who murdered 29 horses in Charles Town, West Virginia on September 7, 2010. I knew many of those poor horses. And, don’t ever think that JUST BECAUSE someone owns horses they love them? Not in alot of cases.

    Sadly, because they are JUST HORSES the killers will never be caught, prosecuted and sentenced to DEATH! <–i'd volunteer &*%#^)&%

    Rest in Peace Our Dear Sweet Voiceless Friends. :(………………………………..

    What Vick did can never be forgiven. So he did a few years in jail and said he was sorry. The man viciously tortured animals. Isn’t that one of the tell tale signs of serial killers when they’re children? What he was capable of doing to those dogs is an inner disturbance that cannot be healed. How does somebody sleep after they’ve electrocuted live dogs to death? The man is a pariah.
