Hate To Say It :

Recommended Posts

I can't stand him, never have- but M Vick is really standing up and taking this whole thing like a man. Pleads guilty and has a press conference pretty much admitting everything. I was fully expecting him to plead not guilty, fight this thing out in court and deny everything, I am quite surprised.

That's what a good lawyer will do for you.

The part I impressed with is that he didn't have to read his apology off a piece of paper. When they have to read a "heartfelt" apology off a piece of paper you know they are only reading what their lawyer wants them to say to look good and it never sounds like they really mean it.

Hammer Handle

Unfortunately, a little too late.

He should have fessed up right away...or better yet...not been so stupid to get involved in the first place.

He is trying to save face now to get a shorter jail time. But, his carrier in the NFL is over. He lied to the NFL Commision when this was all brought up, so they won't let him back.

In a number of years, the AFL or Canada will have a new quarterback.

Yep, I think Hammer Handle has it pretty much summed up. Vick lied, lied and lied some more from the start. The only reason he's confessing now is because his "friends" sailed him down the river. Even O.J.'s lawyer couldn't have helped Vick on this one.

For me personally, Vick's apology means nothing. I think that anyone who kills 6-8 dogs has no remorse or moral decency. If he did, he would have stopped after killing that first dog.

My favorite part was when he said he was going to accept full responsibility, and not point fingers elsewhere. Sorry pal, but that's what you'd been doing the entire time, up until you realized the hounds were closing in (pardon the pun). He must think we all have a pretty poor memory, because only 4 months ago he was telling us he never goes to the house, and it's all his cousin's fault.

2nd favorite part was the jailhouse conversion bit. I don't think the judge will go any easier on you because you claim to have turned your life over to Jesus, or at least I hope he won't.

The plea agreement was a joke too. He didn't run a dog fighting operation and go to dog fights to gamble. He's not a gambler, it says it right in the plea agreement. He just went to see the dogs rip each other to shreds. He went to the fights for the blood and guts, not the excitement of winning or losing a couple bucks. At least he's not a gambler. For a minute I thought he had some awful character flaw like gambling.

Vick said he turned his life over to "God". Kind of interesting in a way, in that he's turned his life over to GOD. GOD spelled backwards is D-O-G. That dog deserves the pound.

It was lot more than 6 or 8 dogs this was a 6 YEAR enterprise.

He admitted nothing except being immature.

Just good lawyering if you can fool a few people it helps it was scripted and rehearsed.

Of course he's sorry.....he got caught and its costing him Millions.

How many teammates or friends from other teams around the NFL were involved? I hate to say it- but I can guarantee there's been more than one there watching and betting on dogfights

he just did what anyone else would do in his situation. Try to get out of it, then blame someone else involved then say yeah I did it and Im sorry. Everyone does it from politicians to your kids. Dont get mad at him for trying to save himself just be angry over the actual crimes he committed.

I was listening to Pat Reusse a week or two ago and he said, and I am not making this up: Vick's crime is not near as bad as Tim Donaghy. He said gambling is soooo much worse than killing dogs. I couldnt believe it. Who cares if some NBA gamblers have broken the law? However, torturing dogs is not that big of a deal according to Reusse. That does it for me, I want nothing to do with that jerk (Reusse).

Funny thing is, if he would have fessed up in the beginning, the feds never would have gotten involved. He would have gotten a slap on the wrist from the county prosecuter and an 8 game suspension from the NFL, maximum. A couple guys got busted for dogfighting in Chisago county and got $500 to $750 fines, along with 5 years of probation. Instead of fessing up, he thought it would just go away, and lied to both the commissioner and the Falcon's owner. The feds stepped in, and now he's screwed. It's a perfect example of how things snowball when you try to lie your way out of things.

I think this is a complete joke..........that was not a heartfelt apology, he was probably up all night memorizing that speech. He found God? What is that crap?!? Does that make it better? He must have the same person writing his apologies that Paris Hilton does. She said the same thing before she went to jail. I hope that judge rides him like a rented mule and puts him in for the maximum. Then when he gets out he can go play in the CFL. What a joke......what a waste of talent........what a pure and utter piece of garbage!

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
