Eagles Release Statement Around Vick Shooting Incident

The National Football Post reports the latest involving Mike Vick and the shooting involving him on Thursday night:

The Philadelphia Eagles were the only team in the NFL that was known to be willing to take a risk on Michael Vick nearly a year ago. Now, the Eagles might have some egg on their face ( at least it’s not cake) depending on what facts come out of the shooting incident outside a club Thursday night in Virginia during a celebration of Vick’s 30th birthday party. The shooting victim was Quanis Phillips and the shooting allegedly happened after Phillips threatened to put birthday cake in Vick’s face or vice versa. At any rate, the Eagles want to get to the bottom of this and team released a statement: “We are aware of the incident that occurred in Virginia early this morning and are in the process of gathering all of the facts. Until then, we will not have any comment on this matter.” When the Eagles signed Vick it was with a zero tolerance policy for off-field screw-ups.

    Damm, it sounds to me that this shooting happened after the party, not during, in addition how is anyone going to hold Vick responsible for the actions of another individual. People don’t know whether the person who did the shooting was even at the party, not to mention the incident within the party may not have anything to do with what transpired later. I believe you reporters just found yourselves another reason to bash Vick in your articles. He has a right to celebrate his birthday if he wants, I just will never understand your positions on trying to destroy this man’s life. This happened less than forty eight hours ago, and already I have seen more articles on this than I have seen in the entire Ben Roethlisberger situation, be careful your racist reporting is beginning to show again.
