Attention Fantasy Football Players

posted by on July 17 at 15:38 PM

You might want to skip drafting Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick this year. He’s probably going to be a little distracted.

Well, this pretty much kills my plans to Slog the shit out of the coming NFL season. Way to care about football people.

I can only assume that Vick wants to switch to basketball and become a Blazer. Classy stuff.

You just KNOW that opposing fans in his games this year will be chanting (pause for effect...):

Who let the dogs out? Hoooo! Hooo! Hoooo! Hooo!

I wonder what Matt Schaub thinks, having sat on Atlanta's bench for all those years. Now Schaub has replaced Carr in Texas and Atlanta will get a whole bunch of...Joey Harrington?

If Vick doesn't play, I can think of 5 people besides Harrington who might be unofficially happy: Joe Horn, Michael Jenkins, Alge Crumpler, Warrick Dunn, and Jerious Norwood.

Bobby Petrino's got a built-in excuse now.

People who participate in dog-fighting should be stripped naked, wrapped in flank steak, and thrown into a pit with four hungry bull terriers. Michael Vick can burn in hell.

mike had a bunch of issues when he was in school at tech as well.

his brother (marcus) is even worse.

you'd think being lucky to fall into $100 mil, the idiot could find some way to entertain himself without looking like a total fuck up - having orgies with goddesses or whatever else the athletically gifted do these days... no talent ass clown.

Exactly. There's no one to step in and help that guy out over all that time? That sucks even worse for Vick.

I'd be more impressed with people involved in dog-fighting if they were the ones fighting the pit bulls.

This is also the consequence of a culture that promotes and encourages children to play the virtual cock-fighting game of Pokemon.

Gotta catch 'em all... and then force them to brutally battle their brethren.

Maybe Jack Thompson can involve himself in this somehow.

What's in the water at Virginia Tech?

you don't get it: dog fighting is a CULTURAL thing, so that makes it ok.
