Michael Vick

Turns into

Bob the Builder

4/2/2009 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael VickEveryone is expecting Michael Vick to return to the football field after his incarceration, but he has other plans -- as in floorplans.

Vick's lawyer announced in Bankruptcy court today that the former QB has a construction job lined up after his prison release and Vick will work a regular 40 hour work week. Further details about wages or the duration of his new career were unavailable.

After being the highest paid player in the league, Vick was suspended indefinitely from the NFL after his 2007 indictment. The NFL Commissioner has said he will review Vick's status after he is released.

Who needs football when you can have drywall?

Whoever displayed Goodell's info, thanks. I just sent him an email and yes I will be calling. Probably will not do any good, but at least I know I tried.

Are you people out of your ever lovin minds? Sentenced to death? Fry him with electrical wires? Are you listening to yourselves? And HE is inhumane? Get over it. Yes, what he did was wrong but there are people out there who are raping little kids, robbing, killing innocent grandmothers, shooting up schools, etc. and he got more time than they get. It's the justice system that needs to be picked apart with a fine tooth comb.

Public.....please think about the wonderful contributions that dogs have made and will continue to make to our society.

They can alert a person if they are going to have a seizure, and save their life!
K9 officers - Awesome dogs!!!! I have seen these MAGNIFICENT animals apprehend thieves, drug dealers, and predators and take a bullet for their human partners.
Therapy dogs that bring a sense of comfort to sick or dying children and adults
Guide dogs .. they help people live fuller lives and provide companionship
The list goes on and on about how smart, loyal, and wonderful dog's are!

Ick the Vick will never, ever, accomplish what these dog's can and will do.

it makes me sick the fact that those of you who show so much affection for your animals can ask for a human life to be snuffed. The man went from one of the highest paid athletes to backrupcy, working a regular job, and forever having his name tarnished not to mention the act of that of his family. He did his crime and karma has caught up with him. He will for as long as he lives be called a Dog Killer so leave him alone.

I am a ASPCA member and have already forgiven him because he got what he deserved. How about those of you who are calling for his death look at yourselves in the mirror cos you are just as bad as Michael Vick is.

Excuse me... No ASPCA member would forgive this dog killer!! Vick would still be doing disgusting things to these DEFENSELESS dogs if he did not get caught. Yeah, like we are going to feel sorry for him for being labeled a dog killer! NOT!

I sure hope for an ASPCA member you do not own a pet!

i actually run a shelter for stray animals including ones that my group rescued from mistreatment and for use in fighting. I dont let anger cloud my judgement on people. Karma is acting itself on him as we speak so im satisfied

It's obvious that this country hasn't changed as much as the pundits are speculating after Obama was nominated and elected. I would bet a dollar to a dime, that the comments made on this topic to condemn Micheal, are made by Racist people. Those of us whom rather have a human being killed, for the life of animals, are the epitome of Racism. This topic has provided racist an excuse to justify killing another Black man, or reducing them to a level of inferiority. Simply because he is Black, these comments have little to do with the crime he committed. These feelings have been pending for soo long, Black people are fooling themselves to think change will ever come.

Any change emerging will be ignited by benefit or necessity. Don't get it twisted, the genesis of these comments is hatred. Holler Back!!!

I hope that your Karma Removes Heads From Asses! I pray for those animals. You obviously have anger issues.

no anger issues here i just dont think a mans life should be taken in the same senseless way he took those poor animals lives. That doesnt solve anything and doesnt make any kind of point other than eye for an eye...We're not terrorists here

I am so happy to know that there are people who really have their best interest in the animals welfare, especially REMOVES HEADS FROM ASSES.

Oh geez, who cares what color his skin is? He did horrific acts upon defenseless animals. I could care less if the man is purple, green, or pink!

welfare of every animal is a priority but this is just beating a dead horse. The man has a family to support im not going to ask for his head only to ruin the lives of his children. His career is over. Roger Godell is not stupid enough to reinstate him. He is going to end up working a 9-5 like everyone else. Is going to sell all his assets to pay off Lawyer fees and other debts.

To Kreeoh- Yes, I'm sure there's racists on this forum, as there are in any facet of life. But many who have posted here in such an emotional manner are people who genuinely love animals and are appalled that a human being could and would do such horrific acts. To say that these comments are coming from only white people is also a slap in the face of other races who are compassionate, loving people who would never even conceive of repeating the socio-pathic behavior of Vick. He doesn't need to look into the mirror to see that he's black and feel inferior. He's inferior because he's a sadistic, violent person that in my opinion, doesn't feel a speck of remorse and is only sorry because he got caught. The comments on this thread have EVERYTHING to do with the crimes he committed and to think otherwise, is only deluding yourself. He's brought this on himself and will continue to experience the backlash well into the future. He brought this on himself because he's a cruel, sick person- not because he's black.

.................Removes heads from dead horses @ 5:27 am.....................You sound like a reasonable person and I am not speaking just to attack you, like most of the internet.............That said, please understand the followig about Vick..................(1) You mention he has a family to support,............. Vick has two women and three children and no marriages and a third woman he also infected without remorse, but paid money to her, out of court..........(2) You mention ruining the lives of his children.......Vick's lifestyle over the last 10 years has already done damage to his children, in a multitude of ways............(3) You mention he paid his debt..........Vick receilved the least of prescribed time, not the maximum. by law...........So, he might not have paid the full debt, as felt by many..................(4) You mention his carrer being over......His career is still in question.........Roger Goodell is pressured by Vick's attorney, ( so he can get paid ) , and pressured by Arthur Blank ( to get money he wasted on Vick ), and pressured by other owners, ( to get a new quarterback for their particular team ), and pressured by 25 % of the public, ( to let him back in, regardless of past activities ).............So, Roger Goodell has been put in a tight spot...........by Vick.............Remains to be seen what Goodell is going to do..................Everything hinges on Goodell's decision.........The debt holders want their money, ( owed by Vick ) but will not get it if Vick is not in the NFL..................(5) You mention him working 9-5.......The man who gave him the job was the only one ,who Vick's attorney contacted, who said ok..........Vick is not going to actually be doing that much work, or work he really needs to live by.......it is a public image situation to influence the NFL, just like the book is........Vick's attorney orchestrated everything and will continue to do so or he won't get his 33% over the next 3 yrs...................Vick gets to keep two of his four houses and multiple cars and other items of value..........Why?..............because everyone is gambling, that if enough pressure is put on Goodell, Vick will be reinstated and will get a 10 million paycheck and everyone will get their owed money, over the next 7 yrs....................They get a fraction of owed money if they make Vick liquidate everything and pay up............Vick owes 20million, plus other debts and has 10million assets................So, everyone is gambling on Vick returning to the NFL............Vick brought all the mess upon himself and everyone ever associated with him............He only deserves a plain life, with no fame or fortune and daily worry as to, "What happened, I was famous?".....................
