Ookie in the Pokey
Shortly afterward, the NFL suspended him indefinitely and without pay. Merely associating with gamblers can trigger a lifetime ban under the leagues personal conduct policy.
Well, kudos to Michael Vick. Regardless of the plea bargain, being the center and money man for a gambling enterprise is probably not a good thing, especially after the NBA got roundly (and deservedly) sodomized over Tim Donaghy fixing games. Lets just hit this asshole with a lifetime ban and get it done with, shall we?
He didnt associate with gamblers like Alex Karras and Paul Hornung in 1963, he fucking RAN a gaming enterprise (or at least bankrolled one, and if you believe that he never shared in the winnings you should drink a big cup of bleach because you are too gullible to live). Not only that, Hornung and Karras were both forthright about what they did, rather than lying about it and making things worse. How this could even be close to acceptable in the NFLs eyes is totally beyond me.
I imagine the only reason that Vick is still technically in the NFL, aside from the salary cap ramifications for the Falcons, is the NFL doesnt want the NAACP all over them. Give it a year or two, and Vick will have degenerated to the point where hell be unable to play professional football (because hes only good scrambling, has no touch whatsoever as a quarterback, and doesnt strike me as the type wholl be able to learn to be a quarterback while scrambling from buttsex in the prison shower).
Eat a dick, Ookie.
