Good for VA Tech:
Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was dismissed from the team Friday, the result of numerous legal transgressions and his unsportsmanlike conduct in the Toyota Gator Bowl.
University president Charles Steger announced the dismissal on the same day that coach Frank Beamer met with Vick and his mother in their Hampton Roads home, the school said. Beamer informed them of the decision during the meeting.
Vick, the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, was suspended from school in 2004 for several legal problems. The junior came under new and intense scrutiny this week after replays showed he stomped on the left calf of Louisville All-American defensive end Elvis Dumervil during the Jan. 2 bowl.
The guy is just a total asshole, as anyone who has watched his on-field antics will tell you. He will probably get drafted by the Raiders in the first round.
“You’re off the team, but you can still use the weight room for pre-draft training.”
Pure window dressing, I say.
I don’t know, John. There seems to be a lot more action on my thread than yours.
Have you considered, you know, trying to become interesting to other people?
John- Did I send you ColdHardFootballFacts.com’s article called “Michael Vick is a Fraud?” If I didn’t be sure to check it out :-)

And the Raiders will probably sign T.O. as a free agent too. Little Vick to T.O. or Randy Moss. Just win, baby, except they haven’t been winning too much recently.
They are ALL my threads, buddy.
You mean to say you really are Tim?
I’d have thought you’d have assumed a more upfront and forceful name. Biff, or Hurley. Garland. Rock. Dag. Dirk.
Don’t, I repeat, do not look at this. It will burn your eyes and you’ll never see Pamela Anderson again:
Who would have thought the brother of Ron Mexico would be so much trouble?
You just had to add the Raiders comment…
Of course he did. The Raiders franchise is the heir of its owner, and if there is an exact opposite of the class of Art Rooney, it’s Al Davis.
Screw Art Rooney. After 1880, he wasn’t able to compete any more with Oakland, San Francisco, Washington, New York etc so Rooney pushed the salary cap. The salary cap sucks. It has ruined team cohesion. Players end up on 3, 4 or 5 teams throughout their careers now. I think that sucks.
Check a little bit more into the personal life of Al Davis before you call him classless. You might not like him as a business man but you can say that about 85% of corporate America.
Probably. But so are a huge number of other big-time college football and basketball players. Let’s face it, major college sports is a corrupt enterprise, in that it subordinates all the ethical and academic standards of the universities involved to the goal of having a winning team.
Vick deserves it, no doubt, and I echo John’s approval of Va Tech in this instance. But let’s not pretend that college sports are anything but what they are.
(And before we go overboard in praise of Va Tech, let’s ask how many of its athletes, including Vick, would have been admitted had they gone through the ordinary admissions process).
Is that necessarily a bad thing? She used to be pretty, but between the excessive amount of slap she wears and the numerous plastic surgeries…she’s starting to look a little worn-out.
Glad to see Virginia Tech got rid of him. The move he pulled during Gator Bowl was a punk move and he deserved what he got just for that action.
she’s starting to look a little worn-out.
A little? She used to be smoking hot. Now she looks like she’s ready to apply for a waitressing job at some truck stop in the middle of some podunk town.
It has been my experience that as women grow older and begin to fear that they are not as attractive as they once were, they more than compensate for the perceived loss by really putting out in bed.
Try it some time and see if I’m not right.
Or we just discover that D cell batteries are cheaper, no fuss, no muss and very little mess.
I think Paddy is joining Darrell in my killflie…
