Falcons to Vick: Get Your Sh*t Together!

8/24/2007 7:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Statement from Atlanta Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Regarding Michael Vick's Plea Agreement and Indefinite Suspension:

"Today, Michael Vick admitted his guilt to very serious charges related to his earlier indictment. His admissions describe actions that are incomprehensible and unacceptable for a member of the National Football League and the Atlanta Falcons."

"We respect and support the Commissioner's decision today to place Michael Vick on an indefinite suspension. As with other actions he has taken this year, the Commissioner is making a strong statement that conduct which tarnishes the good reputation of the NFL will not be tolerated."

"We hope that Michael will use this time, not only to further address his legal matters, but to take positive steps to improve his personal life."

*************************** REWARD $$$$$$$$$$ *************************

To the majority of the black people who have commented on this feed :

PETA HAS JUST SET UP A REWARD PROGRAM OFFERING $5.000.00 TO ANYONE WHO GIVES THEM INFO THAT LEADS TO AN ARREST AND CONVICTION OF ANYONE INVOLVED IN DOG FIGHTING.

SINCE A LOT OF YOU SEEM TO KNOW PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS CULT, HERE'S A CHANCE TO MAKE SOME COIN AND TURN A BRUDDA IN AT THE SAME TIME.

VICK SHOULD BE FUNDING THE REWARDS, BUT HE'D NEED TO BE A MAN IN ORDER TO DO THAT.

Go to the PETA WEBSITE to learn more.

I am sooo glad that GOD is not like man for you see if he
repents and ask GOD for Forgiveness and turns his life around GOD Will forgive him he can apologize to man all he wants and there will be those that hate him to the day they die. I am so Glad that GOD is in control and not man because if man were in control no one would be forgiven and everyone would end up in hell. And last time I checked
we all are sinners and fall short of the Glory and no sin is greater than the other.I feel if Mary Winkler (who shot her preacher husband in the back and killed him while he was sleep) is forgiven then why shouldn't Mike be forgiven??

I thank GOD that he is over everything thank GOD!!!!

Meeka,

Yes, God is in control, who said that Vick repented? You have to repent for God to have mercy on your soul and forgive you. You must remember he LIED to the NFL Commisioner (not a good idea!). That does not sound like a repentance to me.

Some people treat their animals like a part of their family.

Dogs have owners who take them to visit the sick and elderly at hopitals, kids with cancer etc., I have seen it with my own eyes.

To put a dog through such a horrible death, rape, electrocution, etc... for the shear joy, or $ of it all is something I cannot even fathom.

My question is: Who does Michael Vick think he is?
Is that all he had to do was abuse dogs????
Wasn't there something else he could do besides have dogs raped, brutalized & killed.

When an animal is "put down" by a vet, it is done to where the animal just goes to sleep.
Not in Vick's case.

Sorry Meeka, the repentance has to come from Vick himself and his relationship with God.

Remember: In the Bible it talks about animals being God's creature's.
I don't feel an ounce of pitty for that S.O.B. Vick.

Some of you people either need to grow up, or you need mental health intervention. You don't see individual people, you see "groups."

Vick is not a representative of black people - - he represents himself: a selfish, cruel individual. So stop the race-baiting and the race-bashing people, both black and white!

Black people don't have to defend themselves against Vick's behavior, and white people shouldn't globablize about a whole group of people based on what's going on with Vick.

It's not about affirmative action, it's not about slavery, it's not about what black people may or may not teach their children.

It's about this man, Vick, who has abused his power and celebrity and spent his money on something evil. He's paying for it now. Let's move on.

ugghhh... michael vick truely does not deserve the time or energy taken to write this. bottom line, he is a uneducated thug with no respect for life. don't care that he was raised in foster care & mistreated. don't care that dog fighting is part of his culture. don't care if he spends the rest of his life in prison - well, actually that one i do care about! MICHAEL VICK SUCKS! i hope there is something to the "carma" myth and that vick dies a violent, painful, lonely, and long death just like all of the innocent dogs he killed. and while he is in his final moments, i hope he sees people standing around that could save his life - and choose not to. MICHAEL VICK IS A WASTE OF A LIFE

The 'Real Deal' said it all! It's not about race, it's about a human (using that term loosely) behaving inhumanely! Why is it that the race card is always thrown in the mix when a brother gets busted for doing something illegal? People need to take responsibility for their actions-regardless of race! The white man isn't holding you down-your ignorance is!

What a loser. I think Vick should be fined $10 billion for the torture and loss of those helpless dogs. Then sentenced to 30 years extreme hard labor with a rope around his neck and a live electric cable up his a---.

This kind of cruelty to animals is horrific and sad. Suspension is bs. He should be banned outright permanently. He should also do jail time. Hell, I think he ought to be shot for the suffering he caused them. I hate the idea of paying good money to house and feed anyone who'd do something like that.

Truth B told    

Wow What a HOOT! The whole thing is like a bad comedy.

I don't know who goes to my house... All of his good friends couldn't wait to roll over on him...

His mother says "he's a good boy who found God.. (at which dog fight?)

AND NOW the NFL is appalled... because Vick is tarnishing the GOOD reputation of the
N ational F elons L eague..

Drunk, Whoring, shooting, assaulting, Running over police officers(MOSS) must have been polishing up the NFL reputation before....

kaili your comment on 8-24 thanks for saying something about hunting.it is true if not for legal hunting most animals will over populate and they would starve and not to mention the winter months where i am from. nothing is sadder then walking in the woods in spring and come across dead deer that have starve during our winter, so again thanks for your comment..I think folks should contact their local DNR for more infor in their own state on fact and reason on hunting in their state.after all wildlife animals dont take birth control
