    I don't know about these charges, it seems to me that he cares for animals.

    It certainly was nice of him to unchain the pooch from the bumper of an old truck for the photo op.

    Not that I want to be the one defending Michael Vick - but what happened to innocent until proven guilty in this country?

    As far as I know he's not in jail ... yet.

    "innoncent until proven guilty" applies in the legal system ... not neccessarily at your place of work.

    If he is found innocent, I would sue the NFL for everything its worth.

    According to the story on ESPN last night the NFL suspension is the least of Vick's problems. He has until the end of the week to decide whether to accept a plea bargain agreement on his charges. The expert they had said it is expected his jail sentence would be years not months even if he accepts the plea bargain.

    His two other co-defendants "rolled" on him yesterday.

    I think the whole Duke lacrosse fiasco taught us that. I'm not defending the guy, but the media sure is piling on.

    However, things don't look good for Vick.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    A federal indictment is more than enough for Goodell to suspend Vick under the new and improved conduct policy.

    (95%+ conviction rate for those federally indicted)

    Good for the Falcons. They will be a better team for it.

    Yep.

    When the Feds start handing down indictments, it's not looking good.

    Then when your buddies start copping pleas, it really doesn't look good.

    The evidence in the Duke case had major holes in it from the get go, not so in Vick's case.

    Having said that though, I still believe in the innocent until proven guilty system in our country, but I am struggling with this one because it really tugs at my heart.
