So here’s what’s wrong with the NFL

Posted: May 21, 2007 in Uncategorized
Our latest big-time negative NFL story is that Michael Vick owned a house where pit bulls were bred, raised and possibly trained for fighting. Breeding and raising the dogs are OK, but the fighting part is a felony, so Vick could be in a whole mess of trouble if it’s true. Players are getting questioned and/or arrested for guns, drugs, domestic violence, DUI, you name it…and then getting their paychecks taken away. But while many of those issues can be overlooked or ignored by most of the general population, dog fighting strikes a sensitive nerve with a lot of people.
Think any of them are getting it? Think any of them fear for their paychecks? Some are getting it, perhaps, and cleaning up their acts…but others don’t get it at all, many of whom may one day feel Goodell’s wrath. Take this modified quote from the Redskin’s Clinton Portis:
"I don’t know if he was (committing a felony) or not, but it’s his property, it’s his dog," Portis told WAVY-TV. "If (committing a felony is) what he wants to do, do it. I think people should mind their business."
Portis obviously thought the whole world had forgotten him, and he wanted a little attention. Mission accomplished, Portis…you idiot.
