Michael Vick to
be suspended for the season soon
Reports in the media
suggest that Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick will be suspended
for the season within a week.
to Yahoo Sports, the troubled Falcons quarterback Michael Vick
will be suspended for the season. The news portal claims that
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has already made the decision to
suspend Michael Vick for the entire NFL season and he will
announce the suspension of the QB this week.
Yahoo Sports is citing two unnamed
sources for their claim that Michael Vick will be "resting" this
season. One of the sources tells Yahoo that Goodell made his
decision as soon as the legal troubles started.
Of course, using unnamed sources is the
oldest trick in the book, but many experts agree that, after the
testimony of one of the co-defendants in the dogfighting case
against Michael Vick, the QB will leave no choice to the NFL
commissioner but to suspend him for the 2007-2008 season.
Michael Vick has already been told by Goodell not to report to
training camp and the co-defendant testimony would prove that
Vick lied to Roger Goodell that he was not involved in the
dogfighting ring ran from his Virginia property.
Anyhow, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell
has said on a few occasions that he will refrain from making a
decision until the Eric Holder's report is complete, which could
take at least one more week.
