Time To Put Vick Down

Chris Benoit doesn't enjoy many good days in hell, what with the sulfur freely flowing out of his ears and what not. But today had to be a somewhat pleasant day for Benoit as Mike Vick was indicted for the alleged pitbull ring running out of his house. Now, the story of Benoit feeding his kid Flinestone's Xanax before killing him is taking a back burner to the news that Vick tortured dogs that weren't up to snuff.

(And if you are squeamish, don't read on.)

The indictment alleges that approximately eight dogs were put to death by hanging, drowning, and/or slamming at least one dog's body to the ground.

That seems kind of harsh, but maybe that is the kind of incentive that Falcons coach Bobby Petrino could lay down to Vick for this season. (Provided that he plays.) The coach should set a goal that if Vick doesn't lead the Falcons to the Super Bowl, he will be drowned in a team whirlpool.

And if that happens, Benoit can welcome Vick to hell, thank him for giving him at least one day of peace and get him involved in some of the Devil's dog-fighting. Though Vick should be careful because if Benoit is going to shoot up his kid with roids and Xanax, what do you think he's giving the dog?

I told him I would just shoot the mother fuckers.

I've done some messed up stuff, but this guy is whack. Can't wait to see him down here in hell. I'm really looking forward to it.

Ron Mexico said...

Fucking biased journalism!

I had most of those dogs SHOT, but you only mention "hanging, drowning, and/or slamming."

And they had it coming. Just like that bitch I gave herpes.

They need to lock Vick in a room full of animal lovers with cattle prods

Burt Bacharach once sang, "What the world needs now is love, sweet love."

I won't argue with Burt. That may be true. But I think what the world also needs now is to see Michael Vick stripped buck naked, smeared with Alpo, and slowly lowered into a cage full of his own wretched, pissed-off, fighting dogs.

It's not like he killed anybody.

It's not like he's homosexual.

But he may be once his fine ass gets out of prison

Vick rolling over on current NFL players is highly unlikey at this point. Rolling over is only required when the Feds are looking to go up the ladder to find the head of the organization. The feds have the head of this organization already under wraps. It would not do any good for Vick to rat out player "X" because player "X" would mean nothing to the investigation. The only incite player "X" could provide would be to further prosecution's case that Vick is the ring leader. The only person Vick could rat on would be somebody in the organization higher than him, but that doesn't seem to be possible.

Are you sure? I haven't seen anything saying for certain that Vick was totally at the top of this. Post a link to this info!

I don't agree with the premise that they have no reason to offer Vick an opportunity to roll over, either. If other NFL players are involved with this at ANY level, I think the Feds will want those notches on their guns. And if you get one or two other NFL players even casualy involved with this, the media will start calling it a conspiracy and the shitstorm will be like nothing the sports world has ever seen.

Here's the link: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years/2007/0717072vick1.html

The indictment says that Vick, along with three partners, created "Bad Newz Kennels" and used the property for housing and training pit bulls used in dog fights. Vick is the top of the food chain and directly involved in this thing.

The Feds want only slam dunks in this case. That's how they keep a 95% win rate.

Diane said...

I actually think the size of the net thrown over the NFL by the Feds will be determined by the NFL's response to the Vick indictment. If they take it seriously and act quickly to suspend Vick, it may appease the Feds. If the NFL blows it off, expect the Feds to spread the cheer to other NFL players.

Thanks for the link. I see what you're saying about Vick being at the top of the particular franchise. But who were the kingpins of the franchises his dogs were fighting? Something interesting from item #80 on page 17... "Participants in these fights came from various places, including New York, Texas, and North Carolina."

One thing certain, Vick is fucked. His only hope at this point is that Tom Hayden can fly Frank Pentangeli's brother in from Sicily.

There is no question that there are a number of NFL players that participate in dog fighting. But do they run their own organization or team? That’s hard to say. The Feds would probably be on them if there were. So would the Feds want to knock down a sure conviction to get a couple of guys who are only betting on the dogs? Probably not. This also assumes that Vick would roll over on some guys. For somebody who keeps it real by fighting dogs, that seems highly unlikely.

Conrad Bain said...

Damn straight they would, and they WILL once Vick starts singing. If there are any other NFL players involved, two things:

1) The Feds want them.
2) Vick will rat fuck them.

Bet on it.

Diane said...

yeah, anonymous, nothing says "stand up guy" like running a dog fighting ring.

Don't forget about Vick's 3 amigos/co-conspirators who may have more to gain by talking to the feds

Or is there a manly rule I don't know about that says that guys with single initial nicknames will never roll over on their fellow dirt bags?

Anonymous said...

I'm not saying he's a stand up guy. But these guys "keep it real" and don't snitch.

Conrad Bain said...

I agree. None of these dog fight guys will rat out the others...

Well, I mean, except for that guy that the indictment identifies as "Cooperating Witness #1."

Uh, and that guy they call "Cooperating Witness #2"... definite snitch.

Okay, maybe "Cooperating Witness #3" isn't a team player, either...

Hmmm... that guy they call "Cooperating Witness #4" sounds like somewhat of a rat...

Vick will sing. He'll sing loud. He'll sing long. He'll rat out his mother herself if it makes it any easier on his ass.

You are right. That's what I meant when I said that peole rat "up." To go one step higher in the organization. Is there a bigger prize in this whole thing than Mike Vick? Unless it's Peyton Manning, there is much more mobility in this case. My prediction is that Vick gets a year's probation, suspended from the league and that's all that comes from it. You could be right, and it would make this case juicier, but I'm not seeing it.

Vick may very well be willing to sing- he has, what, about 100 million reasons to do so- but there may not be anyone interested in hearing his song. He's got to get the feds interested in something besides himself, and it's not clear what that would be. They're not going to care about a bunch of guys watching or betting on dog fights, even if they are NFL players. They're going to want people who are involved in an organizational and/or operational capacity. Are there bigger fish than Inmate 7 out there? He better hope so, or there'll be no one else to roll over on.

Conrad Bain said...

Vick did not own the dogs that his dogs were fighting against. That is simply a fact. He may have been the top man at his own "kennel", but that's only like being the owner of a sports franchise. There are other fish just as big as Vick swimming out there. The Feds want those fish. Vick will deliver.
