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.
