Report Says Vick Heavy Into Betting on Dog Fighting

The reports, and none good, just keep hitting for Falcons QB Michael Vick and his alleged involvement with dog fighting. The latest comes from ESPN, which had a report Sunday that said that Vick is not only big on the sport, he is ”one of the heavyweights” in the sport.

ESPN used info from a police informant, who is reportedly reliable and stated on “Outside the Lines” that Vick was big-time involved with the sport. “That’s who bets a large dollar,” the informant said.” ”And they have the money to bet large money. As I’m talking about large money, 30 to 40 thousand, even higher. He’s one of the heavyweights.”

Investigator David Hunt said information from the informant has ”resulted in the arrest of several individuals over the past few years, numerous search warrants, as well as convictions.” This cannot be good news for Vick, who has been in the media, and for all the wrong reasons about the dog fighting the past few weeks.

With the recent rash of players feeling the wrath of NFL Commish Roger Goodell, you can guarentee that he is watching the Vick situation with a close eye. If it is found out that Vick is indeed, really involved with dog fighting on a large scale, you can bet that a suspension will be handed down.
