I know I said I would tell the rest of a story, but I've been kind of slow at blogging lately (a situation I hope to remedy soon). I have to delay what I was going to write so I could strike this iron while the fire was hot. The following is just my opinion, not much of this blog will be based on fact. Some of it will be, but most of it will be my ranting.
Not much catches my eye when it comes to news, I try to avoid depressing things, but something came out in the news recently that I've been paying a little attention to. Micheal Vick. This man is an idiot (my opinion). I don't need his lawyers and the NAACP crawling up my ass. But only an idiot would turn a NFL career into a stinking pile of shit (which is what he has done).
Picture this. Micheal Vick gets a very lucrative NFL contract worth millions. So much money if handled correctly it would ensure that his children and their children would never have to work a day of their lives (now we all know it wouldn't have been handled correctly, but that's besides the point). This man decides he has to show his "boyz from the hood" what a big shot he has become and that he's still as "gangsta" as they are. What is more "gangsta" than fighting pit bulls for money? I guess he could have smuggled drugs or ran a string of girls, but evidently dogs were his drug of choice. Anyway, here's a multi-millionaire that wants to fight dogs for a few grand just so he can look like a tough guy. He surrounds himself with a loyal posse (we all now where that got him), picks a tough sounding name for a kennel (Bad Newz Kennels) and proceeds to kill dogs. What a fucking waste of a human being.
Now I don't know about y'all, but this is what I picture.
It's fight night at Bad Newz Kennels and Mikey is getting dressed for the occasion. The first thing he does is pull out the grill drawer in his massive walk in closet, he then decides on the platinum full grill and pops it in his mouth. Next comes the full length fur with matching top hat, he forgoes the shirt because it's more "gangsta" to go shirtless. Next is the zip up boots with the 6" platform soles and a cane with a silver pit bull head with ruby eyes mounted on top of the cane. Can't forget the rings on every finger and the 1 carat diamond earring in each ear, throw in a few necklaces with huge pendants, a fist full of hundreds for show and its party time.
I'm sure every time he entered the arena he screamed "Let's get ready to rumble" (Mr. Buffer, please don't sue me).
Now he's been busted. His loyal posse all turned on him. The NFL doesn't want him anymore (they usually have a morality clause in the contract just for this type of situation). He's looking at prison time because he's taking the plea deal. Then here comes the the NAAfuckingCP.
The NAACP is standing behind Michael Vick. They would have you believe he is a fine upstanding citizen being falsely accused by "the man". They would have you believe that he is only accepting the plea deal to cut his losses. R.L. White, president of the NAACP's Atlanta chapter said. "We further ask the NFL, Falcons, and the sponsors not to permanently ban Mr. Vick from his ability to bring hours of enjoyment to fans all over this country." I'm sorry but he never even brought me a second of enjoyment as a member of the NFL. But I will enjoy knowing he is in prison having to defend his asshole everyday. He will be a trophy in prison and there's going to be a lot of guys wanting that trophy.
Now my question is why is the NAACP backing Vick but not his associates, Purnell Peace, Quanis Phillips and Tony Taylor? I can answer that question, because Vick is a millionaire and if they help him avoid prison or save his NFL career they could probably count on him for some hefty donations, where as the other three are just some broke ass nigg...... uh people.
Question number two. Why would Vick accept a plea deal if he was innocent. I'm sorry but if I'm not guilty of something I'm not accepting any kind of deal. I would stand up in the court room and scream my innocence until they dragged me out. The possibility of someone being found guilty of something they didn't do is very unlikely. I know it happens from time to time, but not to millionaire NFL stars, ask O.J. He did it and still didn't go to prison. Y'all know what Johnnie Cochran would have said, "If the choke collar don't fit you must acquit."
This is not Michael's first brush with the law. Vick reached a settlement last year with a woman who charged in a lawsuit that he had knowingly given her herpes. Last season, Vick was fined $10,000 by the NFL and agreed to donate another $10,000 to charity for making an obscene gesture toward fans while leaving the field after a game at the Georgia Dome in November. In January, authorities said that a water bottle surrendered by Vick at a security checkpoint at Miami International Airport had a marijuana-like substance in a secret compartment. Later they announced that laboratory tests showed no evidence of drugs and that no charges would be filed (I wonder who got paid). Vick said the compartment was used to store jewelry.
So what we have here is an out of control individual with too much money being backed by a special interest group that no longer follows its original doctrine (much like every other special interest group out there). Well this is what I say, fuck Michael Vick and fuck the NAACP. Fuck'em both.
This is just my opinion and you're entitled to it.
