More Vick!

MICHAEL VICK WAS IN COURT THIS MORNING TO PLEAD GUILTY TO DOG FIGHTING…
HE WILL BE SENTENCED ON DECEMBER THE 10TH…
VICK’S PERFORMACE TODAY MAKES IT CLEAR…HE NOW FULLY UNDERSTANDS JUST HOW MUCH TROUBLE HE’S IN…
TALK ABOUT DAMAGE CONTROL!!!
VICK APOLOGIZED FOR HIS ACTIONS AND SAID HE TAKES FULL RESPONSIBILITY…THEN ASKED FOR FORGIVENESS AND UNDERSTANDING…
QUOTE….”I MOVE FORWARD TO BETTER MICHAEL VICK THE PERSON…NOT THE FOOTBALL PLAYER.”
NEVERTHELESS VICK ADMITTED HE LIED TO…NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL AND THE OWNER OF THE ATLANTA FALCONS ARTHUR BLANK…
HE SAID HE WAS ASHAMED AND DISSAPPOINTED IN HIMSELF…AND LABLED HIMSELF AS “IMMATURE”…
VICK DISCRIBED DOG FIGHTING AS A TERRIBLE THING…SOMETHING HE NOW REJECTS…
HERE’S THE KICKER…
VICK NOW SAYS HE HAS FOUND RELIGION…AND IN HIS WORDS…”I WILL REDEEM MYSELF…I HAVE TO”…
SO WHAT TRIGGERED THIS GREAT SPIRITUAL AWAKING???
NOW BEFORE YOU LABLE IT AS “A MIRACLE”…HERE’S THE REST OF THE STORY…
THE PLEA AGREEMENT DOES NOT GUARENTEE VICK ANYTHING…
HIS FUTURE IS NOW IN THE HANDS OF TWO MORTALS…
THE FIRST IS FEDERAL JUDGE HENRY E. HUDSON WHO IS NOT BOUND BY SENTENCING GUIDELINES AND HAS THE POWER TO SEND VICK TO JAIL FOR THE MAXIMUM OF FIVE YEARS…
THE SECOND IS GOODELL WHO HAS THE POWER TO SUSPEND VICK FROM PLAYING IN THE NFL FOR LIFE FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH ILLEGAL GAMBLING…
VICK ADMITTS TO KILLING DOGS AND FINANCING THE GAMBLING BUT INSISTS HE NEVER PERSONALLY PLACED ANY BETS ON THE FIGHTS OR SHARED IN ANY WINNINGS…
THE BIG QUESTION NOW IS…WILL VICK’S CONFESSION BE ENOUGH TO SAVE HIS CAREER???
THAT’S WHAT HE’S REALLY PRAYING FOR…
UNDER THE NFL’S PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY…MERELY ASSOCIATING WITH GAMBLERS CAN RESUSLT IN A LIFETIME BAN…
IN THE MEANTIME TODAY’S CONVICTION WILL COST VICK ABOUT $100 MILLION DOLLARS IN LOST SALARY…BONUSES AND ENDORSEMENTS…
SUCH IS THE PRICE OF SALVATION…
