Now Mike Vick Wants to Get Rid of Cats, Too

12/16/2008 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Vick admitted to killing dogs that didn't perform; now he's trying to dump a couple of cats that he's not going to be needing anytime soon.



A new doc in his bankruptcy case shows Vick is trying to unload a couple of World Cat boats estimated to be worth around $165K for the pair -- he needs the cash to pay back his debts, say lawyers.

Best line in the filing, a Hail Mary of laughable proportions: "Upon his release, the Debtor [that's MV] ... will seek to rebuild his life and professional football career."

Further proof these athletes get paid entirely too much. When you can burn through millions and have absolutely nothing to show for it but a house that won't sell and two boats, there's something wrong.

NFL teams actually hire financial advisers to come in and give the new players crash courses in finance. They try to teach them how to handle the sudden influx of millions (many players come from very humble backgrounds). They try to teach them to invest safely and plan for their life after the NFL is over. Some players listen, some players don't. I think it's pretty clear what happened here.

LISTEN UP!!!! Im not a Mike Vick fan, but he is getting the shaft. I totally agree what he did was very wrong but come on, we have NFL players getting caught with guns, drugs, more guns and more drugs! They still play. They need to clean up the entire NFL but that will NEVER happen because of the money they make.

Michael Vic will be pumped and ready to go in the NFL with a low starting salary and something to prove. He paid his debt to society. If you don't want him on your team fine I'll take him on mine. He royally screwed up. Usually after that your a good boy for a few years, especially while on parole.

# 6 Hmmm. It is so sad that you see it that way.

VICK thought it was funny to watch the pit bull dogs belonging to Bad Newz Kennels injure or kill the other dogs.

As I understand it VICK hung approximately three dogs who did poorly in a rolling session, which lets you know if a dog is ready to be in combat. Vick and his accomplices hung the dogs by placing a nylon cord over a 2 X 4 that was nailed to two trees located next to the big shed. They also drowned approximately three dogs by putting the dogs heads in a five gallon bucket of water. It is also my understanding that Michael Vick placed family pet dogs into the ring with his trained pit bulls and laughed as the dogs caused major injury to the pets at Bad Newz Kennels.

He killed dogs that could not fight and derived extreme pleasure in watching dogs get injured and/or killed. This is not a mistake. This is not something you say sorry for. You say you are sorry when you bump into someone, not when you exhibit a pattern of behavior like this. He is sorry he got caught. He didn’t all of a sudden see why torturing animals is despicable.

Please Vick supporters look towards humanity for all of our sakes!

The only animal living in his dog house should be himself. I wouldn't be able to show my face anywhere if I were him. He will continue to suffer from karma in his life and in his afterlife. Who taught you this lifestyle. Greed the BIG sin. You will pay for that, and I really wish I could be there to watch.

It appears that Michael Vick is not wired right. Something is terribly wrong with him, Normal people do not do the things he did. He is damaged goods.
I hope he is never allowed to play football again and will just sink further into the hole that he, himself, has dug.
For the sake of all, I hope he is never allowed around children and animals without supervision.

I agree with #6 and #7. This guy was my little 11 year old nephew's football hero. Not any more. Not if I can help it. He is NO one's role model. He's a monster. NFL say NO to Michael Vick.

....................ABCLS.........................(Angelia, Barbara, Cornelius, Lyn, Sandra)...........On the TMZ Michael Vick stories list page..............top left at Examiner.com Washington,DC newspaper.............3 hrs. ago...............that states Vick attorneys and Credit Committee, those he owes money to, banks, Falcons, etc...................Have their next hearing for Jan. 15...........to explain where the money actually went...........Vicks explanations don't make any sense............Creditors not satisfied with information........................As you read down the article, it shows what type of person Vick is on another level......................Yes, it was his money, and yes, he can do whatever he wants to with it,.............But the attorneys are trying to put the BLAME on everyone else except Vick...............Bottom line, Vick could have said, "NO" to anything, at anytime, to anyone.................Again, his INNER-SELF was telling him what to do.........just like the cruelity to the dogs..................................As you read some of the listings, it is really the mark of a stupid man..............Two women and three children and no marriage................not right by most standards..................All the Creditors remarks relate to how sure are you Vick, that you will be back in the NFL..............They want assurances of that...............No way he can give those assurances.........But of course his attornys did........SO, more important than ever that Roger Goodell be convinced, no one wants Vick to return to the NFL....................Goodell could stop or start the whole story with one sentence.............BANNED FOR LIFE....................so, I write and I write..................................

# 9 - I agree that it is so sad that many children looked up to VICK. We should do everything in our power, (legally) to make sure that any team that attempts to bring VIck on will be regretful. Vick is a monster and the things he did were Unconscionable!!!! He is a menace to society. Vick we will not support you at all. The bulk of most humans and all dogs is that we wish all the worst for you.

If you feel it is appropriate, please write to:

Of course the NFL should say no, but the fact is they won't. Let's look at history. How many guys in the NFL have been up on gun charges (Giants), Rape (Dallas), Assualt (Every dam team), DUI (Every dam team), Vehicle homicide (Rams), and yet these guys still play and we still pay to see them. Are you ready to put this across the board...... Are you ready to support the NFL as they rebuild with no name players.......I WANT A SUPERBOWL and so do you end of discussion

................Stl chic @ 11:45 am..............They wiil say no if, you write a letter to the NFL and state that by your good sensibility and judgement, you do not want Vick to return to the NFL.........That you feel that Vick is not the right kind of person you want to watch............That Vick is a very bad role model..................That the NFL has enough questionable men already..............That the NFL can play football with no-name people who will then become the real name people...............That by your judgement you want more decent, reasonable, honorable people in the NFL..........It can all start with you................What do you think?...........................Can you do that one little effort?...............
