Get at me dog: Vick gets slapped around by Falcons owner Arthur Blank

July 24, 2007


Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank held a press conference today with his GM, Rich McKay on the Michael Vick situation. All in all, Blank basically showed that he’s done with Mike Vick by throwing homey under the bus. I mean, Blank wanted to make it crystal clear that he did not condone Vick’s alleged AND known association with dogfighting.


Hey, no matter what side of the issue you’re on, it’s OVER between Mike Vick and the Atlanta Falcons. If he did it, they simply can’t keep him. He’ll have to be released and Blank is certain to go after Vick signing bonus money. If he’s found innocent, then Vick will have the knowledge that Blank went on tv and didn’t defend his character. Moreover, he said he wanted to suspend Vick for 4 games, the maximum suspension allowed, without Mike even getting his due process in the legal system.

I don’t know much, but I do know that the Falcons aint sh*t without Vick under center.


(Joey Harrington is going to replace Ronald Mex, yeah right)

Not so sure Blank and them should have come out and said this… I mean, Goodell gave them cover with the paid leave of absence, why add that they wanted to suspend Mike? Oh well. I guess they’re really trying to save face here, otherwise, they would have said this stuff BEFORE the indictment was handed up, not after….

I can tell you who is loving this, every minute of it — Jim Mora, Jr and the ENTIRE New Orleans Saints organization. What a mess.
