No Nike Deal for Vick

7/28/2007 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Vick is in deep doggy doo-doo with his endorsement partners for his alleged role in a dogfighting ring. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback has been suspended from big money contracts with Nike, Reebok and a trading card company, thanks to a federal dogfighting indictment against him.

This week, Nike suspended Vick without pay, and released a statement that "Nike is concerned by the serious and highly disturbing allegations made against Michael Vick, and we consider any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent." The company vowed to stop selling Vick-related products but chose not to terminate his contact until his case was filed. Due process of puppy law!

Reebok opted to stop selling Vick's Falcons jersey, as has the NFL, which has suspended sales of Vick's number 7 jersey on nflshop.com. And the Donruss trading card company has pulled Vick's card from new packs.

The feds didn`t catch up with Vick just by happenstance. They had the goods on him and his nasty co-horts before they even arrested them. He needs to be punished to the extent of the law and then more. He will be a pariah now .He can plead not guilty all he wants, but they had everything on tape and more.Thank you tmz, Nancy Grace, Anderson Cooper and every other news networks that will keep this alive until Vick and every other creep that abuses animals come to justice.

I am so happy that everyone is dropping him. I agree with the poster who said we should put him in a pit with the pit bulls and place a few bets on who might win that match. The NFL needs to step up and get rid of him for good. I see he has a big lawyer now who proclaims his complete innocence then says at the end "this will be a hard fought battle". Why if your man is innocent will it be hard to prove? I certainly hope the feds have all their ducks in a row and dont screw this one up.

this isn't a race thing to me, I'm white and I'm sure people of all races go to dogfights and they are all sick. It's definately what's in their hearts that matters not their skin color. A**holes come in all colors and good people come in all colors!!

Well if he'll make the comment "What goes on behind closed doors in my house is my business" then it's a fact he WAS involved and knew about it. Which makes him and anyone who will defend him and his friends or even watch the NFL. since they refuse to just dump his sorry gangsta a** until he proves he wasn't involved just as sick and in need of jail time.

Makes ya wonder how many of his team mates were involved in it ws well since there have been a few come orward to defend him, they defend him they should get the boot as well.

he's a pathetic loser. I love that his life is going to suck. Idiots like that blow through their money and he'll be broke and living on welfare before we Know it. He deserves every bad thing that comes his way and MORE.

#63 (MAMMA PAT):

"Innocent until proven guilty" does apply to humans but since VICK is not one of them, to him it should be "Guilty until proven inoccent". But hey, he is GUILTY so they should just throw his ass in prison oh wait, I have a better idea...why dont they hang him and feed him to the dogs.
And MAMMA PAT, do we honestly need to consider him innocent??? I think NOT

Vick is nothing more than a low life thug out of the gutter. In his mind he can do anything he wants, whenever he wants, because everybody will fall all over themselves to kiss his sorry ass, cleaning up his mess just because he can run after a football. Big frickin deal. Stupid as hell. He needs to be hit hard in the pocketbook, which is the only thing somebody like him understands. What a total waste of space. LOSER!!

You critized the Warden because he/she made a point about abortion and his/her point it's very valid. All of you are frantic because of the cruelty to dogs, but must of you will said nothing about the cruelty to unborn babies. Before you throw stones at Michael Vit (which is propably guilty) why don't you search your soul regarding your indiference towards the misery and cruelty of abortion?

But of course, you will never do that. It's not "politicaly cool".
