  1. No Bowe + Gonzalez >>> A hurt Antonio Bryant + Winslow
  2. Maybe Mort and Len P are readying my posts?NFL,Falcons may urge Vick to take a leave of absence Mort: "Look Len, he's got a '7' in his name." Len: "Maybe that's him." Mort: "Vick?" Len: "Yeah. Pass another slice of pepperoni down here, would ya" Mort: "Well, CA_7 is pretty close to MV7, which is the name of one of his companies" Len: "There, you said it yourself. Just call him a source 'close to' the situaiton"

  4. Mort also believes Vick could be getting a lifetime ban even if he pleads out
  5. Because the NFL has an agreement with the NFLPA that details when they can suspended players (The Player Conduct Policy).Henry, Tank and Pacman all violated provisions of that agreement. As of today, Michael Vick has not. If Goodell wants to go around the current policy it we create new issues, just like not acting quickly with create issues. Guess he needs to figure which is the bigger headache.I wonder about Vick being suspended just based on the indictment. What if he is suspended for a year, and is then cleared of all charges? I'm guessing he would have some sort of a lawsuit or greviance, no?Exactly. It is kind of like waiting for your FF draft to happen, everyone would love for it to be tomorrow but realistically it makes sense to wait until everything is established/determined (starters, injuries, etc)

  7. The more I think about this, the more I think Vick will agree to some type of suspension before being convicted and before the season starts. Vick agreeing to this is in the best interest of all parties; Vick begins to try and repair his image, NFL cleans up the league and stays within the Player Conduct Policy, Falcons do not have to deal with PR nightmare of possibly having to let him play until a sentence/conviction is made. Some thoughts behind this theory: - Looking back on Pacman backing down from his appeal, I can see Goodell sitting down with Vick and telling him to take a one year suspension or let due process take its course and possibly get a lifetime ban. - I am assuming Vick will have good counsel and also realize how much money he stands to lose from fighting this. He desperately needs to repair his image to salvage what NFL career and endorsement deals he has left. - Falcons would still take a cap hit but maybe some type of exemption could be worked out? I also think about Michael Jordan first “retirement”. Many theorized that he was involved big time in gambling/mob and this retirement was really a one year suspension that allowed him to save his image. I am not comparing the reputation of Vick to Jordan since Jordan always did and said the right thing publicly but both players are/were marketing icons for their respective sports and the NBA was at its pinnacle when Jordan was there, the same can be said for the NFL today.
  8. Goodell can't do that until he's convicted if I'm not mistaken.Article XI of the CBA.I believe that article refers to actions on the field of play only.I posted this earlier: http://www.nflpa.org/RulesAndRegs/ConductPolicy.aspx In summary, at this point Vick is subject to counseling/evaluation by the league and players can only be suspended for the following: - Failure to cooperate with said evaluation - Convicted or admitting to criminal activity - Failure to report an arrest or criminal charge (one of the things that got Pacman suspended) - Violent activity in the workplace None of these apply to Vick (yet). Therefore the league will not suspend him until one of them happens.

  10. James Curtis was on Sirius this afternoon and said pretty much the same thing about Vick's situation.
  11. You are thinking of the league substance abuse policy (no suspension for 1st infraction). Vick's crimes and possible conviction fall under the conduct policy.
  12. Please let me know what part of the NFL Player Conduct allows this?Right or wrong, Sets a very bad precedence for the commish to do whatever he wants whenever he wants. Where do you draw the line in other situations?Well this has been the problem from the getgo -- Goodell has never - to my mind - laid down an a=b type list - the way he deals with each player seems to be very individualized which on the one hand they should be - each player's situation will be different. But on the other hand, it seems as if there are no clear lines right now. How he deals with Vick reflects (and will be judged by) how he dealt with PacMan, Henry and Johnson.He's already set precedent - but not clearly. IMOAre you referring Goodell's decision to suspended the players or the suspension given (length)?Pacman, Henry and Tank all violated the Player Conduct Policy. The policy also allows the commissioner to have a "broad stroke" so all suspensions handed down are on a case-by-case basis. It means we may not know what is coming but the commish can drop the hammer to clean up the league, this is a good thing IMO.
