    Well Vick got a 6 year 100 million dollar gross deal off one decent year. Also at the press conference he alluded to eloping with Fat Bastard by getting him a ring. Does Pennsylvania have a same sex marriage law?:biggrin:http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ycn-9045823

    I'm sure many DWFs will be terribly disappointed if the dog killer gets Fat Bastard a ring. They'll now have to pin their marriage hopes on Vince Young, instead. Poor fellas.

    It is truly sickening to see what this society rewards, although it isn't surprising.

    this WILL turn out bad, cash strapping the franchise on a 31 year old player who has only played a 16 game season once. In an amusing side note, I watched the OTL on this the other day: and after taxes, agent, and paying his chapter 13 off he only nets 2 mil.

    Ho hum, another afflete gets a big payday. I don't begrudge Vick on getting his contract, it wasn't obtained from Lurie at gunpoint. Besides that, if somehow his guaranteed money was cut in half, it wouldn't have the slightest impact on my life whatsoever. Now for the positives. As with many athletes, and MOST affletes, Vick will most likely burn through whatever he gets at an incredible pace, thereby quickly returning the money to the economy, and to many hard-working businesses that are the benefactors of his largess. And for the Eggles, they have the #3 guy in jersey sales who fills the stands with Vick-worshipping DWF's who will fill the Eggles coffers with ticket and parking revenue, in addition to countless $$ spent buying $8 beers and similarly overpriced artery-clogging fare. Win/win for everyone!

    Hasn't Michael Vick paid his dues to society? He is a decent quarterback but not worthy of his new contract. If he has two more strong seasons I will give him the benefit of the doubt.

    drunkblackfan--that's a good one! is there any other kind :icon_wink:

    Vick may have paid his dues to society but he will always be a low life dog killing piece of sh*t to me, so I think a minimum wage contract is too much for that kind of person. Obviously others think differently.

    To be fair there are probably 10-15 better white Quarterbacks out there right now arguably. He is ovverated but with the supporting cast around him this year the Eagles should do well.

    Also its interesting to note that there have been many great white qb's of the past that have had Vick's ability to run. If I recall Ben Rothlisberger was a very good runner in college and who can forget Steve Young when he played with BYU.
    Its also interesting to note that when I grew up watching college and pro football in the late 80's that the announcers would always refer to white running qb's as scramblers and the few black ones " runners ". To me the word scrambler always had the connotation of something that was discombobulated or out of order. I wonder if this was more of the caste speak that has been well pointed out on this site before?

    That's a very good point! Scrambler vs. runner. No one ever considred Bobby Douglas a "runner" yet he held NFL QB rushing records for quite a while.

    Agree with most of that, but dog killing pales in comparison to the estimated 1.5 million slaughtering of the innocent unborn children annually!

    Society has put more value on animals than human life. Tragic.

    Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Romans 1:25

    Yes, human life means little these days. Why should we expect justice to be served on a dog killer when we often can't get justice served on someone who takes human life? In so many ways the world is truly upside down.

    Good point about scrambler/runner, drunkblackfan, and welcome to Caste Football.

    Its a crazy world. I am opposed to abortion and yet somehow I wish other races in this country that procreate faster than their financial means can support would maybe try and practice abstinence. It would be unchristian of me to support abortion for other people. Just my two cents.

    Michael Vick thinks he's too low on NFL Network's 'Top 100'


    One player unhappy with his placement on the list? Michael Vick, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback who came in at No. 70, a 50-spot free fall from his 2011 ranking on the same list.
    "Yeah, it's a joke," Vick told 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia. "I mean, I won't say where I need to be, I let my peers and everybody else decide on that. Maybe it was voted on by the peers, but I just disagree. I know how good I am and what I bring to the table for my football team and the things I can do on the football field sometimes can be uncanny but I give a lot of credit to my coaches and the people around me.

    Ya Mike you did a swell job of staying on the field and leading the "Dream team" to a 8-8 record. I'm predicting Vick won't finish the season(he hasn't once in his career) and will get hurt again at some point and i will be thrilled! But if he gets hurt that just means more media coverage to Griffin,Newton, and Freeman.
