Vick asked to stay away from camp

So ordered NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

News conference at 4pm from Arthur Blank to discuss the camp leave of absence (it’s not really a suspension or a ban).

The Falcons have been asked by the league not to heap their own punishment on Vick until the NFL can review the government’s case against him, and they’ve been asked to keep paying him his pre-season check.

What do you think? Will be back for the season now that he’s out of camp?

Can Joey Harrington win for this team?

Are you sick of this story yet, or just plain sick?

    Well, training camp is just 2 days away. Check out Joey Harrington – nobody in Atlanta seems to realize yet, this guy throws rockets. I think he is a Bobby Petrino type QB and the NEW Falcons will surprise some people.

    The indictment of Michael Vick by a Federal Grand Jury would require a certain amount of proof that the crime of animal cruelty exists. Michael Vick should be suspended without pay from playing football until after his trial and he should be banned from professional football forever, upon his conviction.
    Engagement in animal cruelty indicates a serious flaw in a man’s character.
    If he is convicted of the charges that have been presented against him he should recieve the maximum pental for this crime.
    I cannot fathum why a millionaire would choose to engage in this kind of evil activity.

    Joey Harrington..umm no thanks. Turn the program over to DJ Shockley. He was outstanding at UGA, he has a loyal following in Georgia and he’s a model citizen. I think he is what we need to put this Vick ordeal behind us.

    I am glad the NFL stepped in to remove Vick pending the investigation, this saved the Falcons from having to make a lose-lose decision.
