    This puts Ron Artest's dog-caring skills to shame:

    Just what is the fascination with dogfighting that sportsmen seem to have? Aren't there enough bums in America?

    I hear ya. Don't understand what sadistic pleasure someone could get from watching two animals rip each other apart. From my viewpoint, it tells me something about the character of the person involved.

    I was going to revive this thread because an anonymous source just told ESPN that Vick was majorly involved in dog fighting:

    An anonymous source isn't ironclad proof, of course, but this story just got worse for Vick. It obviously isn't going away anytime soon. In the last few days, the legal news started to look a little better for Vick, as the prosecutor indicated that they were having trouble gathering evidence:

    What, there's no CSI: Dog Pound team out there? No canine Quincy to lend a hand?

    Saw this. Cannot believe he would take risks like this with his career. Crazy.

    I forgot to link to the first ESPN story in that last post; here's the link.

    According to this anonymous source, this has been going on with Vick since he was in college. Vick's never gotten in trouble for it before, so he probably figured it was no big deal, and certainly not something that could in any way jeopardize his career. Whoops.

    "They" say people who like dog fighting are of below avgerage intellegence.
    I could go for one or two fights. But not with a dog I know. Unless that dog was an azzz to me.

    Vick has now been indicted on charges related to the alleged dog-fighting ring.

    Maybe if he goes to jail, the Lions can pick up his contract.

    Not to get all "moral" but I think dog fighting is one of the most disgusting and cruel things a person can participate in.

    Yeah, those poor doggies. Who paints their barns black anyway?

    There is no way that you could run regular dog fights in my backyard without me knowing it (if I had a backyard, which I don't).

    The barking, the crowds of people holding cash, the dog poop, the telephone calls asking what time the fights start, etc.

    I believe in due process, but if he is found guilty, I predict this will be the New York Post headline:

    CON-VICK-TED!

    Several concerns...........

    1. He was witnessed watching a dog being slammed into the cement til it died. He also watched dogs being hanged til dead.

    2. He had previously talked to the commish. One must assume that he said he was innocent since he was never suspended. Commish will not take lightly if he was lied to.

    3. A federal investigation is much more serious than some county hack.

    From today's Jim Rome show, apparently the Fed has a 95% conviction rate. They simply do not go after suspects unless they have overwhelming evidence in their favor.

    Apparently Vick also participated in electrocuting, shooting, etc of dogs.

    If this is true, and again, the evidence is pretty overwhelming, then I hope this guy's whole career is destroyed.
