Sick Vick Will Scramble Into Court Today

8/27/2007 10:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael VickMichael Vick will go one-on-one with a federal judge today at 10:30 AM ET, and will admit that he's guilty of being part of a group that killed dogs for sport.

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback -- who once told ESPN that he was an animal lover -- filed a plea in court Friday where he admitted to helping kill eight pit bulls, and gambled on fights between dogs.

The NFL has already suspended him indefinitely and without pay. Vick could also get as much as five years in prison for the charges.

Let's hope the judge is the "hardass" he is reputed to be. An example needs to be made. Anyone who uses the blessings of their talent to kill and abuse harmless animals needs to be on the receiving end of very harsh treatment. He won't of course suffer as those dogs did, unfortunately, but he should get the maximum and when he gets to prison he will find out what inmates do with child and animal abusers. It ain't pretty.

He should never get the opportunity to play Pro again. How could he kill dogs and let them suffer? Animal killers are just a step away from killing humans. He is a very mentally sick person.

This is a man who truly doesn't get the how much this crime will cost him. Keeping it real for the boys have cost him millions of millions of dollars. He's a clue, if you have friends and you make big it might be time to get new friends. You don't own the boys you grow up with nothing. They rolled on you a ten seconds, so tell me are you sure their losers were your friends?!!!

the t.v. news reports said that he NEVER admitted to being involved with killing the dogs...that he only admitted to being involved with gambling on the dog fights...which i interpret as a way out for him...so that he can continue with the NFL...if that ever happens i personally will never ever tune in or support the NFL games in any way

While I think Vick's actions were deplorable, I just don't understand the press coverage on this issue. Where is the press when other NFL players are arrested for beating their wives? Just let justice run its course and report on other issues, such as Alberto Gonzalez resigning.
