The Atlanta Falcon’s lost (yet again) to the New Orleans Saints last night (34-14) and are now 3-10.?? During player introductions, DeAngelo Hall displayed a Michael Vick while running to the field.? He then took the poster to the sideline and taped it to the back of the bench, facing the crowd.? A member of the Falcon’s public relations staff removed the poster after the first quarter.
Hall also wrote “MV7” (for Michael Vick #7)?in his eye black.
“We did that because we wanted to let him know that we’re still thinking about him,” Hall said. “That was my personal thing. I wanted to let him know he’s not forgotten. We kind of, I don’t want to say as a franchise, don’t want to acknowledge the situation, but it’s kind of the way you feel. All the pictures are gone. No more jerseys. No more nothing. We need to let him know we still care about him.” (Source)
Falcons player, Roddy White showed his support by displaying a home-made “Free Mike Vick” t-shirt worn under his jersey.? There were also several player’s in attendance sporting their Michael Vick Jerseys.? We still love you Mike!? Keep your head up!!!
Breaking News –? Former Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick has been offically sentenced to 23 months in jail for his role in a dog fighting operation.
The sentence, handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson, ended an eight-month legal odyssey?for Vick that saw him go from NFL star and the face of the Atlanta Falcons franchise to a prison inmate. The sentence on federal felony charges means Vick, suspended indefinitely by the NFL, won’t play again until at least 2010. He still faces the league suspension. He has also been indicted in Virginia on state dogfighting charges and faces lawsuits from several banks. The Falcons are awaiting an arbitration ruling in an attempt to recoup $20 million in bonus money paid to Vick. (Source-AJC)

The Feds are attempting to freeze Michael Vick’s assets?in order to ensure they receive $1 Million dollars for the costs to care for the 48 dogs that were originally in Vick’s care.??WTF???
Vick’s “deteriorating financial condition,” his recent push to sell off property, and several lawsuits against him prompted the motion, according to court papers and federal authorities.
The tab for the 48 pit bulls staying at unidentified animal shelters in Virginia is estimated at $928,000, according to the motion. (Source)
