Ross would examine Vick? Not necessary

A couple of days ago at the NFL mini-meeting in Fort Lauderdale (my home turf South Florida is) Dolphins owner Stephen Ross discussed the issue of Michael Vick with the NFL Network's Scott Hanson. According to Hanson's Twitter tweet on the subject, Ross told Hanson he "believes in giving a second chance," and would examine Vick if asked to do so by his football people.

Ross, at the end of the day, is still a rookie NFL owner and has some things to learn. First lesson, why get involved in issues that aren't issues for your team?

If Ross knew his football people as well as he needs to, he'd know the Dolphins are not interested in Michael Vick. Miami's football people, so averse to bringing attention to the team they don't even hold press conferences after signing unrestricted free agents, are not interested in having the Michael Vick circus pitch its tents in Davie.

And it's not just that Vick comes with unflattering attention based on his tainted history, it's also that there are legitimate football reasons the conversation concerning any interest in Vick was very short around Miami's braintrust.

Vick has been out of the NFL for 19 months, may be suspended by the league once his legal issues are resolved in a couple of months, and Vick wasn't exactly Peyton Manning before his troubles anyway. Miami also just invested a second-round pick on Pat White, by all accounts a player expected fill the same spot as what Vick might, so the addition would cause a logjam at quarterback for Miami.

So Ross discussing Vick is simply talk for the sake of talking. The owner should learn to avoid that as he gains more experience.

[BLOG NOTE: Want to wish you all a happy Memorial Day weekend. Take a second this weekend to remember the sacrifice of the military men and woman who died while serving the United States of America. Maybe invest more than a second and watch the video below. While most of us are not working, I remind you this blog will be in full effect Sunday with an update on my Sunday Dolphins column, which tackles the issues of Miami's' "hungry" players and why coach Tony Sparano loves them. So check back tomorrow.]

SAMMY: Pittbulls Are the most loyal of dogs the problem are the owners.They keep them in cages and do every thing in their power to make them that way.However this is something you can do with any type of animal.

FARTLITO: THANKS. Didn't know I was famous.You want to be my sidekick.

MR.B I don't know. Just don't like to fill her pelvis bone with her on top.Need some cushion

do you like Diaz in the movie the mask with jim carry AFC, perfect ass,
not too bony
not too fat just perfect

Pitbulls hurt and kill kids. Kill all pit bulls I say. There owners are stupid to own them.

The afc east champs. Tell james harrison's son how sweet and loyal pit bulls are to people. The little boy was almost mauled to death . He's still in the hospital and this dog never did anything like this before. These dogs can snap anytime.

carlos. the same goes for you. This little boy will be traumatized for life and will probably need therapy never mind vick's dogs .

Dear Mr. Cocoajoe

"soiled bottom are you listening? For the most part, we're grown men who are serious about our Miami Dolphins not some snot nose kids."

I am listening and hear you loud and clear.
I will try my best to fall in line and get with the program.

If I dont shape up soon I'll throw my own ass outa here.

Thanks for setting me straight

Soiled :)

one of vick's dogs was placed in a home in CA and walked three blocks from his home by himself to mule a lab dog,then the people who had ZIPPY said, he's so sweet , we can't believe he pulled the lab's head of his body.

p.s..as mr bunglito would say, the pit bull in da house my azzz

soiled , i am having dinner in 2 minutes and i don't want to see your ugly name for the next 50 minutes b/c it's really sad to see it while i am having dinner

Sammy . exactly ! the neighbor's of james harrison said the same exact thing. They said how nice the dog is , that it hardly barks , never did anything like this before and can't believe it happened. how many times can you hear this ? pit bulls in da house my azzzzzzzzzzzzzzz !

Dear Mr. Farlito

I am currently in the middle of a Mudd mask(helps clean the pores).
So my face is under cover right now.

Enjoy your dinner

Soiled :)

ps Help with the dinner dishes :)

Dear Mr. Farlito

Please forgive me, its my name that offends you not my face.

I will signoff on my posts using my last name.

Sincerely

MacMuddyPants :)

mr.bunglito, do you know that vick only owned 2 kinds of dogs ,
1/pit bull
2/pit bull mix, and the only between them and 3 facts;
a/if any doesn't fight will be shot or drowned . i am not joking.

b/when the police came they found 50 pit bulls, the most dangers ones left, now you do the math,how many got demolished and how many got shot.....NICE

c/vick is very lucky man b/c no dog can sue him

p.s ..any team gets him, they will lose big money and will take the focus of the team.PIT BULL in da house or in the county i live in MY AZZZ

ok, soiled,can you tell me when are you going to take off then i can have my dinner when your ugly name isn't in action

you guys,don't understand my love to my 4 Pit Bulls .i never had any issues with them growing up but that time when they attacked and killed two cats. it wasn't their mistake, the cats were nasty,

As I said if you keep it in a cage it doesn't have that bond.I don't know their relationship with their pet.Yoy can teach a Paris Hilton little purse to attack

Hilton's purse dog to attack

again, you guys don't understand that the only thing a Pit Bull would grab and hold on is your heart with love for you

Now you going to compare a little purse dog to a pit bull. LOL. The pit bull is born with the killer/attack instinct not taught. It's in the breed.

afc east, in every subject he shows ignorance, last night he says big fat ass better than a victoria secret ass .today he says that pit bull are nice dogs. i hope mr bunglito give us the bottom line w/ the ass dispute .

I don't like fat chedder cheese ass. Selma hayek ass is nice. Eva mendez ass is very nice. Yum ! Yum !

Written like a true 10th grader.
Vick deserves second chance in life. Now he can use his college education and become whatever he wants....outside of football. Goodall is going to keep him on the shelf for 1 yr.
He wasn't exactly Peyton Manning before all this dog gone mess... pun intended... NO KiDDing,, never was that level, never will be. Running threat, that's it.
Atlanta doesn't want him back,,, they are better of with a Rookie QB than Vick in his prime.

"EDITOR'S NOTE: WHILE TEMPTED TO DELETE THIS POST BY SOMEONE POSING AS AN IMPOSTER, I DECIDED TO KEEP IT HERE SO WE COULD ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT HATERS OF EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD -- SUCH AS REMEMBERING OUR FALLEN HEROES -- LOOKS LIKE"...yeah they are real heroes that rape and burn teenage girls then kill their families. The real fallen heroes are the ones who don't enlist and have to fight for their innocent lives and then get murdered by the US military anyway!

STOP THE MILITARY PROPAGANDA! THIS IS A SPORTS PAGE!

you see afc , the ass man spoke, he's on my side, i win.

mr ,bunglito has a lot of wisdom and he always give you the right answer , my advice is, don't let that name bunglito fool you to think he's smartest person on this

erase these words from my last post..........to think

The imposter armando strikes again. Spoken like a true left wing looney nut job. Now take you homosexual, pot head liberal ass back to the hole you crawled out from. Maybe you can meet barney frank down there.

raygun. there's always canada.

sammy. i thank you for your kind words. like al pacino said in the movie "Heat" . " She's got a greeeeeat ass and your head is all the way up it. fercious aren't I ? "

Like it or not Miami has a big issue at QB. Pennington is a good QB but not enough to in the system we are trying to run. Chad Henne is really a mystery to me, we know he has a strong arm and all but he is really an unknown quantity until he start some NFL games. Pat White is not Michael Vick AKA 3 time pro bowl selection. Vick may not be Payton Manning but who in the NFL is? Drew Brees and Tom Brady fit in that category and that's about it.

Michael Vick may have a bit of a circus that is guaranteed to follow him but he is literally made for the system the Dolphins had success with last season. I can see Vick lined up at receiver Ronnie Brown at QB, that is a major problem for opposing defenses. Vick can run and would be a dangerous receiver threat. Can the same be said of Pennington?

Vick killed a few dogs, ok he did his time and paid a HEAVY price, can we get over it? The guy would obviously be on his BEST behavior, me it's a no brainer. If he can't regain his for we cut him next year. What do we really have to lose? There are people in the NFL who have done worse things than Vick has done.

Dave put the crack pipe down !

Dear Mr. Dave


"What do we really have to lose?"

Respect of some(not all) but some fans I would figure.

"The guy would obviously be on his BEST behavior"

He gave his own fans the middle finger one game in Atlanta.

I believe it is very hard for one to change there true colors.(miracles do happen though)


I am a believer in a second chances and the right to earn a living.

He did go to college, yes ?

Has anyone here had to change there work career ?


To me being in the NFL is a privilege not a right because Ive been there before.


You never know when Ron Mexico will rear his ugly head.

Soiled :)

Soiled. you played in the nfl ? or did you get your driver's license suspended ? LOL

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone. We love our troops. Thanks for the reminder Armando. Wish all those in the media loved this country as you do.

Dear Mr. Bunglito

I worked with my hands most of my life doing Stone work(Granite,Marble)Install repair and polish.

I have been in 2 serious motorcycle accidents(26 broken bones)
that forced me into a new field(Im a desk jocky now)

I dont make anywhere near the money I made before but my life is still good.

Soiled :)

Mando:

Dude...he's the owner....OWNER. That gives him permission to say whatever he wants. In your own written words didn't you say, "...would examine Vick if asked to do so by his football people.." Proper interpretation suggests that if Parcells and Co. wanted to examine...which I bet they did if only for a split second...the Vick situation, then Ross would listen. It's no "rookie" mistake, please, this man has owned plenty of companies and somehow acquired enough money to buy the best football team. How many millions did he fork over? I don't know Ross from Adam but give him a break especially when he merely suggests EXAMINATION of the situation should Parcells have a brain freeze.

Soiled . i got ya ! You must of really loved (it must have been a Privilege ) your craft. It's lucky that you're alive .

Dear Mr. Bunglito

I am Very lucky to be alive and count my blessings daily.

I did love my work(as much as one can love work )

But I did have to change my career.

I believe if Mr. Vick is not allowed back in the NFL that he will adjust. We all have to make adjustments in life.

Life is short, make the best with what ya got.

Soiled :)

Mr. Bunglito,

I agree on your take regarding the pit bulls. It is in their nature to snap at any given time. You hear and read about it often. I am glad it is the owner's kids that get hurt and not my own kids. I always say if someone is going to get hurt by those beasts let it be those that own them.

Soiled . Well said . I couldn't agree anymore.

Assasin. Yup !

I'll Take J-LO and Beonyce @ss over Eva's..... Buglito:I seen crows attack hawks every animal alive have that instinct placed in the right situation.Walk up to a deer with her young trapped.Bet she's more to attack.You are not being open minded.The LITTLE RASCALS had a pit

The afc east champs. You've got to be kidding me , right ? Crows ARE vicious. they can claw your eyes out. Everbody has the instinct to protect their young, including humans. That's just an excuse. James harrison' s dog was not protecting it's young and either was the pit bull that killed that lady in san fran. also i can just see " bambi " attacking someone in the right situation. LOL

You idiots! You read and hear things and believe it. The only time your stupid @ss see pit bulls is when you are driving through the hood with your car doors locked. I pet pit bulls, played with them, and watched them fight; trust me their owners make them that way. Get your butts off the couch and go live life!

The afc east champs . Sammy said you like a fat ass. is oprah more your type ?

AFC East Champs

Most homeowners insurance companies don't take ownership of pitbulls very likely you know. I know everyone has a right to own any dog they want, but I have every right to protect my own as I see fit.

So i guess james harrison trained his dog, in his beautiful suburban home, to be a vicious attack dog. You know the same dog everbody said was sooooo nice and NEVER did anything like this before LMAO ! what an idiot. get your head out of your pit bulls azzzzzzzzzz.

?

THE afc east champs . You watched pit bulls fight ? you're a f'n low class piece of shyt . i thought you said you loved pit bulls. how can you watch them fight if you do ? now go back to the hood and smoke some more crack !

James Harrison is an idiot for bringing that beast home to his kids. He is lucky his kid is alive and not having his scalp surgically attached back to his head.

Mr. Bunglito,

Don't worry about AFC EAST CHAMPS. As long as it's his kids that pay the price for his ignorance.

Mr. Bunglito,

Don't worry about AFC EAST CHAMPS. As long as it's his kids that pay the price for his ignorance.

Assassin. agreed .

Gopats,

If you are out there. Yankees won tonight, You know who(Red Sox) lost. Too bad.

gopats = sammy

Here is a list of the most aggressive breeds. All you have to do is google and you will see. Notice which breed you do not find listed???

Potentially aggressive breeds:
Llasa Apso: can be cranky with kids
Toy poodles: bite out of self defense
Dachsunds: not very patient
Rhodesian Ridgebacks: very dominant breed
Miniature Pinschers: "big dog" mindset in little body
Pekinese: intolerant
Chihuahuas: prefer adults, not tolerant of kids
Chow Chow: one-person dogs, bite without warning
Giant Schnauzers: very dominant breed, will even challenge adults
Old English Sheep Dog: very protective of owner
Cocker Spaniel: very protective of owner
Rottweilers: very protective

Paul. LMAO ! Notice that none of these dogs except for the rottweiler ( chow chow ? ) can kill a person. Really . toy poodles , chihuahuas, pekinese , cocker spaniel and miniture pinchers Lmao !. Oh my god ! They sure put the fear of god in everbody. LOL

I am so glad the Dolphins signed Pat White. Because of that there is no chance that we will end up with the sideshow Vick. I believe in second chances too but not in my backyard.

I do not take from Mr. Ross' comments that he was suggesting and interest in Vick. I presume he was stating that if the team WERE interested in Vick, he would have no issue with that.

I don't infer from that that he believes they are interested in Vick to any degree, or that it should be taken that he is either.

Just that he would support the team's decision.

That's a definitive non-story, unless the underlying theme is that he cedes decision making to The Tuna, which we already knew.
