More on Vick

As the media feasts like rabid hyenas on the news of Vick's indictment, another important story has been pushed aside.

ESPN is devoting CNN like coverage to Vick. Their .com has written almost 20 articles and columns on it already.

The timing to the announcement of the indictment, coupled with the inordinate level of coverage provided by the media is most curious.

Less than 48 hours ago, the NFL announced the reduced suspension of two time DUI offender, Jared Allen. A white player on the chiefs.

Quite a coincidence that just as the masses were starting to really wonder about the basis for the reduction and before a maelstrom could be initiated by Negro sportswriters questioning the Commish's motives...the government releases news of the indictment.

The NFL and the government that has worked hand in hand with them through this whole ordeal killed two birds with one press release.

They squashed the brewing outrage of debate about Allen getting such beneficial treatment.

And they have essentially destroyed Michael Vick.

Certainly the commissioner and his henchmen are having a wonderful laugh in their ivory tower right now. They freed their pale skinned brother from full suspension and seem to have applied full shackles to Mr. Vick.

Evil. It is relentless.

Sir, indeed. As yet another example of this relentlessness of evil, did you see where Deadspin has labeled Karl Malone as white!! So, in the NBA if you are sucessful and keep your nose clean, you MUST be white, right, Will?

Vance said...

Respectfully. Seriously.

The only jackels here are those who would tortore and kill the animals.

Are we still looking for excuses to blame someone else for a sociopath''s behavior?

H.N.I.C. said...

Was "Sociopath" on your fuckin word of the day calendar this morning or some shit? Change your tampon and get back, word?

My Hero Zero said...

Sir, I believe you have seriously underestimated the scope of the conspiracy to which you referred. Should we consider it a coincidence that both of the supremely-talented Vick brothers have been branded with the "criminal tag" by the powers to be? Should we swallow whole the notion that the younger Vick and another proud African-American QB were released by the same team...a team, I might remind you, that is always bidding to host the next Super Bowl? Are we so blind that we refuse to see that no white NFL siblings has ever been indicted for organizing a dog-fighting ring and brandishing a weapon at a local McDonald's?!?

The only question that remains is what the Vicks did (or what they know) that instigated this unwarranted persecution...other than being born black, of course.

Sir, Mr. Leitch will be warned about this...

"The only jackels here are those who would tortore and kill the animals."

Sir, we agree.

That's why we called the media hyenas.

Thank you for corroborating our characterization of the media.

Sir, you raise alarming questions.

You don't see the Hasselbecks being treated like this!

H.N.I.C. said...

"You don't see the Hasselbecks being treated like this! "

Sir, Shhhhhh, we are gonna need Matt to have a big year this season. Can't you wait to draw attention to him next season? Oh wait we've got a dynamic young brotha as his backup, my bad sir, carry on.

Fooch said...

Have either of the Hasselbeck's been implicated in dog fighting, gambling or stomping an opponent on the field of play?

Sir, EXACTLY!

Why is no one investigating them to find out???

Fooch said...

Excellent point. We need an informant somewhere to point out that the Hasselbeck mansion has some dogs buried out back. If word spreads that someone's been arrested snooping around Hasselbeck's mansion, you'll know it was me!

Sir, you should have kept this to yourself....now they will be waiting.

Burnsy said...

Sirs, I humbly suggest evidence to the contrary of a Hasselbeck scandal. If he was truly hurting any kind of animals, don't you think he'd at least have the decency to put one on his head?

yea, and maybe his brother Tim could shove one in his wife's mouth.

Sir,...Fooch.

We wanted to let you know. We have received several emails, and the senders have told us that your discussion on this topic has further marginalized NOIS's opinions.

We don't know what this means, but we are being flooded with emails.

Fooch said...

I think some confusion may have existed for them in the true nature of this site. Hopefully they've realized that and realize there's no need for marginalization.

Reasonable Doubt for a Reasonable Price said...

Sirs, if I may?

Stooping to "crime" and "subterfuge" in order to accomplish the goals brought forth by Mr. Fooch would only serve to cancel out the good it would do. This may be the source of the so-called "marginalization" of your opinion.

Although, for the record, I would be happy to serve as counsel, should said "crime" be allegedly committed.

H.N.I.C. said...

Not tryin to site jack, but man what's up w/ the Patrick Kerney situation? A chick got raped in dudes house, while Kerney was in another room sleepin and we heard about it for what like 5 minutes. Fuck Jared allen, what about Patrick?

"Although, for the record, I would be happy to serve as counsel, should said "crime" be allegedly committed."

Sir, is that you bruh?

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Fuck Jared allen, what about Patrick? "

Sir, when someone brings such a poignant opinion to this site, it would never be construed as site jacking.

The topic you bring up needs addressed.

We have notified the research assistant to start digging up info on this Kearney character.

oh christ...scoop jackson jr is back...and nois is going to put up a post about patrick kearney...

if al gore ever envisioned this, he'd never have invented the internet.

"if al gore ever envisioned this, he'd never have invented the internet."

Envisioned what? Your dumbass comments? I agree.

Yes.... I am a Negro. What's your point?

The outrage is amazing, how could anyone do that to an animal what a sick human being. The question I ask myself is, what country is this criticism coming from, and I’m shocked at the answer. Is this America criticizing Michael Vick, the same America where a vast majority of Americans play willing accomplices to the atrocious treatment of animals? Why yes it is America passing judgement on Michael Vick’s “alleged” animal cruelty!!! This is like being looked down upon, for human rights violations, by Adolph Hitler!

Veal is legal, and given a choice I would rather be a fighting Pitbull than a “Veal” cow. At least I would be given a chance to fight for my life, as I would in the wild.

Veal is a by-product of the dairy industry. In order for dairy cows to produce milk, they must be impregnated and give birth. Half of the calves born are female, and they are used to replace older cows in the milking herd. The other half are male, and because they are of no use to the dairy industry, most are used for beef or veal.

Within moments of birth, male calves born on dairies are taken away from their mothers and loaded onto trucks. Many are sold through auction rings where they are subjected to transportation and handling stresses. The fragile animals are shocked and kicked, and when they can no longer walk, they are dragged by their legs or even their ears.

Every year, approximately one million calves are confined in crates measuring just two feet wide. They are chained by the neck to restrict all movement, making it is impossible for them to turn around, stretch, or even lie down comfortably. This severe confinement makes the calves’ meat “tender” since the animals muscles cannot develop.

Published scientific research indicates that calves confined in crates experience “chronic stress” and require approximately five times more medication than calves living in more spacious conditions. It is not surprising then, that veal is among the most likely meat to contain illegal drug residues which pose a threat to human health.

Researchers have also reported that calves confined in crates exhibit abnormal coping behaviors associated with frustration. These include head tossing, head shaking, kicking, scratching, and stereotypical chewing behavior. Confined calves also experience leg and joint disorders and an impaired ability to walk.

In addition to restricting the animals’ movement, veal producers severely limit what their animals can eat. The calves are fed an all liquid milk-substitute which is purposely deficient in iron and fiber. It is intended to produce borderline anemia and the pale colored flesh fancied by ‘gourmets’. At approximately sixteen weeks of age, these weak animals are slaughtered and marketed as “white” veal (also known as “fancy”, “milk-fed”, “special fed”, and “formula fed” veal). Besides the expensive veal which comes from calves who are kept in small wooden crates, “bob” veal is the flesh of calves who may be slaughtered at just a few hours or days old. While these calves are spared intensive confinement, they are still subjected to inhumane transport, handling, and slaughter, and many die before reaching the slaughterhouse.

Sir, thank you for your passionate and informative post.

Just kidding.

If we didn't have an open policy, we'd have deleted both those diarrheal diatribes the moment you hit "post".

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"Hey you guys got mentioned in the Arizona Republic today."

Sir, link didn't work.

Can you post it again.

Thanks.

Let the brotha murder his species of the month, it will not be me caring how he gets his thrills.

This blog should have instead dedicated a series to how he personally has validated widely held thought that blacks can't run an offense because they are as undisiplined as my dick afetr a few brews.

Give me the 4'7" Brees over these jamocks every day and twice on Sunday.

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"as undisiplined as my dick afetr a few brews."

Sir, the problem with your dick isn't discipline related.

It has Napoleanic complex and tends to try to overcompensate.

Burnsy said...

I can't believe a white man brought his dick up on this of all blogs.

Do you think Ookie will bust a cap in the ass of any Atlanta fan waving their "Ookie" placard?

This could become interesting

Sean O said...

Maybe Michael Vick shouldn't have brutally murdered dogs and the feds wouldn't have conspired to bring him down. Just like they wouldn't have gone after Bonds if he didn't do steroids or Rick Tocchet if he didn't run a gambling operation. What, wtf? Tocchet is white!

nation_of_islam_sportsblog said...

"What, wtf? Tocchet is white! "

Sir, has Tocchet been convicted?
