NEW YORK (July 23, 2007) -- Commissioner Roger Goodell has ordered Michael Vick of the Atlanta Falcons not to report to the team’s training camp pending the completion of an NFL review of his recent indictment by a federal grand jury in Richmond, Va., for allegedly participating in an interstate dog-fighting enterprise.

Commissioner Goodell informed Vick that the review would be completed as soon as possible and that Vick’s full cooperation is expected.

In a letter to Vick today, Commissioner Goodell said: "While it is for the criminal justice system to determine your guilt or innocence, it is my responsibility as commissioner of the National Football League to determine whether your conduct, even if not criminal, nonetheless violated league policies, including the Personal Conduct Policy."

Vick will not forfeit his preseason pay during his excused absence from training camp.

Commissioner Goodell also directed the Falcons today to withhold any contemplated team discipline regarding the Vick matter until the NFL review is completed.

I've never been a Falcons fan, but I don't see him never playing again. America loves dogs, but we are also VERY forgiving. In my opinion it will blow over at some point in the next couple of years. He may never play in Atlanta again, but I could see a team like Houston, Detroit, or some other bad team who needs a QB picking him up.

Since this whole thing started, my objective opinion has been that nothing ever happens to star athletes, but I'm starting to change my mind. This story just will not go away. I read that Nike, Dick's, and even the Falcons org. are cutting ties w/ him on their respective websites. It keeps getting worse by the hour - literally, so I'm going to quit speculating and hope that justice is served.
Anyone who hates Vick, or just wants to read about how screwed he really is, should check this site. It's called a rumor mill, but they are very accurate, if a little bias. Tons of Vick news - all bad.
