Michael Vick: "Friends"??

Seems that supposed "friends" of Michael Vick are now trying their darnedest to disparage the fact that he was not involved or in the know about any illicit activity at that property in Virginia.

Two friends of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick are convinced he has been involved in illegal dog fighting at a home he owns in Virginia, they told SI.com on Thursday, despite Vick's denials. "He knows what's going on in that house in Virginia," one unnamed source told SI.com. "There's not a doubt in my mind he's involved with it."

"Friends"? Is that the term for people that go about as "unnamed sources", spewing speculative comments with no avenue of corroboration? "Friends", you say?

Michael, of course, had no comment. And how could he? Where did these quotes come from? How can he address the accusations if the people throwing these quotes out don't elaborate and make Michael aware of the source.

As far as we are concerned, these are the equivalent of those quotes you see in the National Enquirer. You know, the old "A witness said they saw Britney snorting coke off of Lindsay's right buttock". No attribution, no reasonable means to verify it.

And this is what sports media has become. Sensationalist tabloid reporting. Attacks on Vick and Bonds. While Roger Clemmens walks around with a crown on his head and on his off days at home, while the rest of the team plays, the media kisses the ring on the hGH enlarged lily-white little finger on his throwing hand.

Certainly, some will say, "hold on, what if the sources really are in the know".

Well, if it turns out that these "friends" really did say this, then we have to ask: Have they never heard the words "Don't Snitch".

How hard is it to seal your lips and let Michael ride?

This is the equivalent of the crab barrel. As soon as one makes it to the top, the others pull him back.

It is distressing to stand by as the biased white tabloid sports "media" is possibly initiating what is the equivalent of Negro on Negro violence. Negro men turning on each other.

And now, it seems the DA is getting in on the action. Putting out information and then refusing to elaborate on it. No wonder the tabloid sports media feels comfortable in doing it, with the wonderful example set by the Virginia DA.

Vick refused to comment Wednesday. He has denied knowledge of any dog fighting and cited family members for drawing him into the situation. Poindexter refuted Vick's April 27 claim that he is "never" at the property, saying that there is evidence to the contrary. He declined to elaborate.

Stand by folks. It seems the tabloid sports "journalists", after getting the result they worked so diligently to produce for Pacman Jones, are now rallying together to cement the undoing of Michael Vick.

The federal conspiracy at the airport didn't work. So, now they move on to the next scheme.

We will say this: If this ends up being the end of Michael's career and cash flow, the NFL and the Virginia DA will have no one but themselves to blame when Marcus Vick is forced to resort to crime to support himself.

So, tabloid sports media, don't even bother reporting on the hold-ups or car-jackings that take place down the road. Those are on you.

Herpes and dogfighting don't mix, dick, I mean Vick. They give you 100 mil and you need to fight pits to feel like a man. Isn't the money enough???

Dogfighting is just so wrong.

We have to be able to feed our families. 100 mil may not be enough for Brother Mexico...err, Brother Vick's family to eat.

We need to make a lot of money because we spend a lot of money.

You are doing the Nation of Islam a great disservice naming a blog of such imbecilic content after it.

"Well, if it turns out that these 'friends' really did say this...How hard is it to seal your lips and let Michael ride?” Can u think of a more morally despicable observation? Anyone I've ever known from the Nation would find that easy to explain to you.

Sir, actually, we can...

I am intrigued by your hypothesis. Do you think there is enough material hear to develop into a screen play?

"I am intrigued by your hypothesis. Do you think there is enough material hear to develop into a screen play?"

Sir, we appreciate your interest. It is the sign of a lucent thought process and a cogent mind.

There is plenty of material here. And, any holes or lapses, can easily be filled in with appropriate hypotheticals.

Let us know if you choose to develop this further.

We feel we can effectively give you the proper hypotheticals to arrive at the appropriate finished product.

Sir, Jerry Falwell's last words were "put a dime on Fido. He has blood lust in his eyes."

Clearly, the Moral Majority enjoyed a good canine clash.
