Boy what a loser this Michael Vick must be. For those of you who haven't seen the news, Vick was indicted by a Grand Jury for his part in this dog fighting ring.

Think the Falcons are regretting letting Schaub go yet?

Isn't it innocent until proven guilty? I'm not a lawyer but that's how I interpret the law. If he's found guilty then I'll be right thier with ya.

Growing up with hunting dogs that were treated as part of the family, this inhumane issue really irritates me. How can anyone be that cruel and lack such moral decency? If Vick is convicted, I really hope they make an example out of him and give him the full six years in prision. I better shut up before I really go off...

It is but he let let this happen at a house he owned. I heard what they did to the dogs if they lost and I hope an animal rights groups comes after him also. I hope they find him GUILTY on every charge that will be against him. These professional athletes have life by the balls, money, women, nice cars and about 4 houses. When I read stuff like this what athlete's do I hope they are found guilty, have the book thrown at them and a year or 2 suspension.

That's what they say, but it's really guilty until proven innocent because of the media.

You can take the player out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the player. Football players these days are complete fools, living up to the stereotypes they so rightfully deserve. Tank, PacMan, Vick, and now Dominic Jones for the Gophers. Did these guys burn all their remaining braincells taking crack hits around the dog fighting ring at Mikey's place or what?

Sports now days need tohave very strict penalties, dont have a 3 strike rule. If you use steroids, Your out for life! If you get a felony, your out for life! You dont get to choose who is going to draft you, if someone drafts you, that is you new home, or your out for life! Let them decide, do they want the big money, or do they want to go back to the ghetto! I bet there will be less problem people in sports!

I totally agree with you, although I think the new Commish is starting to come down on these individuals more than in the past. Maybe this one will put him over the edge. I think that the mere fact that Vick looked Goodell straight in the face and lied to him about this whole thing will get him banned for life from the NFL.

Yes to be criminally convicted that's the standard, which may or may not be met. But regardless of that, to indict someone by a grand jury requires a fairly substantial amount of evidence to create "probable cause" in the first place and whether he's ever convicted criminally, there are other standards that determine from a lay person's perspective whether or not he is "proven" to have done this or known about it.

If it turns out to be true, I'm all for throwing the book at him. But maybe let up on the "ghetto" references, eh? Pretty low class...

Can you be anymore offensive?? The only strereotype here is comparing a few bad apples to the overwhelming upstanding football players in the league.

The problem is there are getting more and more bad apples every year! When you pull a a low class criminal out of the poor house, all you end up with is a low class criminal with money!

Thier were probably just as many bad apples 20 years ago it's just the media and other really didn't care. The lawmen of today are cracking down (no more warnings)or looking to make a name for themselves. Unless of course you're an illegal immigrant....then no laws apply to you and we enforce none of them on you. Not that someone who did a crime like this should get off.

OK you pretty much named all the guys getting in trouble in 2 of your posts. I could make a list 100 times longer of players who help their communitys. Those posts comparing Football playes to criminals and other stereotypes should be deleted.

The media certainly has to take the majority of the blame, but then again, so do we. We are online talking about it, reading about, watching it, etc. The main stream media puts on what we want to see. The sad truth is, there are a lot (the vast majority) of pro sportsmen and women that do a lot of good for the community, but unfortunetly, that doesn't sell. In Vick's own state, Warrick Dunn builds houses for single moms (dozen's of them), instead of selling a jersey number (I believe in Arizona) the player made him do community service and donate the money for it. It's just plain sad that the bad apples get the attention and we keep fueling the fires.

Just my $.02

I don't believe you are supposed to be callng people names on this family sight. Calling someone a loser before the jury is even out I don't believe is fair. Whether the evidence is one sided or not. If this happened at my home sure you could hold me responsible because I know what's going on at my property just like you do. For all we know Vick wasn't ever there. If I owned a house and rented it out should I be called a loser because the tenants got busted running some type of illegal activity. Especially if the tenants are paying the bills on time. Never want anything fixed in the house. Why would I need to go over there? I have never once been visited by the landlord at any place I have ever rented.

I wasnt comparing football players to criminals, I was comparing criminals to criminals. The media or us dont make them criminals, they do! I wasnt pointing out football players, I was talking all of sports. Its the fotball players that are hilighting themselves. What I was saying is if you give a bad person 50 million dollars, thats not going to make him a good person, just a bad person with 50 million dollars. More opertunities to do bigger badder things!

So the cup is only 4% full! If he is guilty feel free to call him every name in the book he deserves it. Eyes nothing was directed at you. I understand what you are saying.

Remember to that there is "athlete guilty" (OJ) and real world guilty (say Alfonzo Rodriguez). Down2earth, did you happen to read any of the articles WHY they indictied him? Seems like he had everything set up for dog fighting and dog destroying, not poodle breeding.

I read he pleaded not guilty. I also think he is probably guilty. But I'm not going to call him names until the verdict is out. Plus people get out of the ghetto every day and try to make something of themselves. There has been mishaps in the past where the evidence has convicted some and he was put to death. Later to find out he didn't do it.

Where is the person who should be deleting some of those name calling/stereotype posts anyway?

Hey guys, the "name calling" may have been a broad generalization, but this isn't a Micheal Vick website. He messed up and will be held accountable. Ghetto or not, he deserves what he is going to get.

I spoke with my sister who lives in Hotlanta tonight, and the news is becoming so vulgar covering this story that she can hardly stand it. This isn't a black/white, rich/poor, ghetto/suburb, professional/blue collar, North/South argument. Vick knew what was going on at that house and he bought and paid for the house, fence, equipment, dogs, pens, etc. and he will go down for it.

Sad how someone with so much talent can waste it in such an indespicable way.

I hope he ROTS, or better yet, gets the same demise he gave to those dogs.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division has promoted four officers – Chelsie Leuthardt, Brandon McGaw, Jen Mueller and Brett Oberg – to the position of regional training officer. They’ve been in their new positions since April 18.  The Enforcement Division’s six regional training officers are responsible for training the state’s conservation officers on topics such as defensive tactics, firearms and use of force. In addition, they train and work closely with the 6,000 volunteers who are integral to delivering the division’s education and safety training program. (The largest number of volunteers, about 4,000, are firearms safety instructors.) Regional training officers also spend a portion of their time performing the traditional field duties of a conservation officer. Following are brief bios of the newly promoted officers: Chelsie Leuthardt has been a conservation officer for four years and most recently patrolled the White Bear Lake area. “I’ve made strong connections with many instructor groups and look forward to working with them more closely,” said Leuthardt, whose area includes the southeastern part of the state. “I enjoy working with our user groups and helping to form how we train our next generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Brandon McGaw has been a conservation officer since 2007. For most of that time, he’s been stationed in the Mora area. He’s also been a Conservation Officer Academy instructor, field training officer, firearms instructor and use of force instructor. “I really love teaching,” said McGaw, whose area includes 10 counties north of the metro. “I enjoy connecting with the students as well as the older adults who take safety training courses.” Jen Mueller began her career as a conservation officer in the Hutchinson-West station in 2012. Mueller, who was promoted after serving as an acting regional training officer, said she learned quickly that participating in the Enforcement Division’s youth safety programs was one of her favorite parts of the job. “I’m amazed by our volunteer instructor groups and how passionate they are about what they’re teaching,” said Mueller, whose area includes the southwestern part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching our officers and helping them become better equipped to deal with situations they may face in the field.” Brett Oberg has been a conservation officer for 13 years and spent much of that time in the Hutchinson-East station. He’s also been an armorer, field training officer and use of force instructor. “I really enjoy training others and seeing youth get excited about the outdoors, especially firearms and hunting,” said Oberg, whose area includes the south metro and south-central part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching at the Conservation Officer Academy and helping the new recruits become conservation officers.” The four officers join Regional Training Officer Mike Lee, who covers the northeastern part of the state, and Acting Regional Training Officer Greg Oldakowski, who is responsible for the northwestern part of the state. Bruce Lawrence is the Enforcement Division’s statewide recreational vehicle coordinator. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Latest update from Crane lake.....people are hopeful and are predicting a possible ice out May 7...Been some good deterioration this week

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.
