Michael Vick spotted drinking at the airport! Just the way haters hate….

August 24, 2009

Wave at the haters Mike.  They hate because they cant do what you do....

Wave at the haters Mike. They hate because they can't do what you do....

Why is this news?  The guy was having a drink in the airport.  He is not about to drive and he is an adult.

Tony Dungy scolds Michael Vick for public alcohol consumption

Michael Vick‘s mentor, Tony Dungy, scolded the Eagles quarterback for drinking in public after the New York Post revealed he was drinking Grey Goose and pineapple juice in a Philadelphia airport bar.”Michael, you can’t do that,” Dungy told Vick, via SI.com’s Peter King.

A man can’t have a drink now? we are not talking about Donte’ Stallworth, who killed someone while driving drunk, he was in the airport relaxing.  That is not a crime.  Some people want to hate so bad on Vick, they really are looking for anything to try and end his football career.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko told the Philadelphia Inquirer that drinking alcohol is “not in conflict with terms of (Vick’s) probation or reinstatement with the NFL.”Dungy relayed to King that even though alcohol may not be completely banned, he must not present a negative image. Said King, “He can’t give the media or the public any ammunition to suggest he isn’t doing everything he can to live a clean life and devote himself totally to football.”
See?  Even Dungy is saying that people are going to look for something to use as ammunition to hate.  Living a clean life is not a life without alcohol.
Dont look as the sauce as the reason....

Don't look as the sauce as the reason....

In a letter to Vick upon his conditional reinstatement on July 27, commissioner Roger Goodell told the quarterback that “prohibitions regarding drug and alcohol use” were included in as conditions.
Vick is eligible to play in this week’s preseason game against the Jaguars. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said he expects head coach Andy Reid to make a decision on whether Vick will play on Tuesday.

Update: NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told PFT of Vick: “I am not aware of any violations to the terms of his reinstatement.”

Update, 2: Aiello reiterated those sentiments to USA TODAY by e-mail on Monday. “I have received no indication from anyone that Michael Vick has violated the terms of his reinstatement,” he said.

The NFL finds nothing wrong with this but if you want to hate Vick, at least find a real reason….

  1. It’s not a matter of hatin’. But Vick’s probation also calls for him to be nowhere near any controlled substances and to be leery of his consumption of alcohol. You seem to forget that during his trial he lied to the judge about the fact that he’d smoked marijuana during the commencement of the trial ? I’m not against him drinking but even he knows that he’s just placed himself in a rather embarrassing position. Not only that but when a guy like Tony Dungy comes out and even goes to bat for you. Why the hell would you want to go about letting the guy down. Even Dungy has voiced his disappointment at this . It just goes to show that the alleged act of contrition was nothing more than an act to begin with ! strong> Not only that , now he and his lawyers are now trying to renege on their original agreement with his creditors as to his debt accrued concerning his bankruptcy proceedings. This guy can’t be believed with anything that’s coming out of his mouth !
