This was on Yahoo. I think we all need to write to Michael Huyghue who is the Commissioner of the United Football League and tell him what scum Vick is and that we will not support the UFL if they decide to offer him a job. The only email address I could find was this: info@UFL-Football.com


Michael Vick's post-prison job prospects look pretty good
By MJD
Most guys in Cell Block D don't have a plan this good, but most guys in Cell Block D aren't Mike Vick.

Michael Huyghue, the commissioner of the upstart United Football League, which plans to start play in 2009, is chomping at the big to throw millions at Vick. He sees Vick as the star attraction of his soon-to-be fledgling league.

From Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback:


The big news, I suppose, from my talk with Huyghue was this: He said the chances of a UFL team signing Michael Vick to play the 2009 season are "98 percent.'' Strange percentage, but that's what he said.

"Michael's not going to be able to walk right back into the NFL,'' Huyghue said. "He's going to need some kind of buffer before he signs in the NFL, and we'll be able to provide that for him.''

I don't know if Vick's going to need a buffer or not, but he is going to need cash. And I can't see any NFL team giving him more than the veteran's minimum, whereas the UFL could conceivably pay him in the neighborhood of $4 million a year. The prestige of being an NFL player is nice, but not being broke is probably a higher priority.

And it would be completely worth it for the UFL, too, even if Vick is never the player he once was. The attention and curiosity he'll generate is something they won't be able to get from any other player, I don't care who they pluck off an NFL roster.

Yeah, they are right.....they would get a lot of publicity over hiring him if he never even played. How much for the shirts that say "Boycot the league that approves animal cruelty to get publicity!"

Michael Huyghue - you are no better than a street corner PIMP.

4 mil a year? :faint: Looks like crime pays big time.

With all that money he'll probably be back in the dog fighting biz again. :sosad:

It's a sad situation, but realisticly I doubt any amount of e-mails would deter this scum bag from hiring what he see's as his meal ticket...

Don't forget to add the picture of a chewed up beat up dog.

Animal planet is having a special on the Michael Vick case tonight.

That sucks. I wish that wasn't happening, he should be locked up away from society for what he did to those poor animals. What's to stop him from doing it again! He should never be allowed to see another dog again, or get his job back !

I believe that as part of his sentence that he is not allowed to have dogs, maybe any pets, again. RIghtly so.
