My protest letter made the NY Times.......

They didn't print all of it so here it is:

This is an open letter to Mr. Blank and Mr. Goodell:

You guys are unbelievable. Mr. Blank, if Michael was a vice president at Home Depot you would have already cut him. I wonder what your employees think of your leadership skills now. I asked myself what you might be trying to accomplish by not benching him? Nothing came to mind other than the fact that you will fill more seats at the games, so in one other word, GREED!

Mr. Goodell, if Michael Vick were Pacman Jones he would be suspended. That's not a question, that's a damn fact. Pacman Jones probably has 2000 attorney's standing in line waiting to sue you and everyone else he thinks maybe involved in his year long suspension. It didn't take long for you to sell out and for everyone to see your true colors. I guess you may lose a little revenue if Vick isn't playing? There's that word again, GREED! They're on TV a few times this year and that includes Thanksgiving Day. Just what I want on TV, family values. Thanks Mr. Blank and Mr. Goodell.

Here's my protest and I call on all others to join in and make your voice heard:

I WILL NOT WATCH OR BUY TICKETS FOR ANY NFL FOOTBALL GAME INVOLVING THE ATLANTA FALCONS FOOTBALL TEAM UNTIL MICHAEL VICK IS BENCHED PENDING THE OUTCOME OF HIS TRIAL.

I am the second letter on the page.

Nice call and gutsy.

You still have morals. BTW I'm on your side (and not because "Nasal Spray" is a dirty bird). Unlike the majority that are sinking under sports and reality show hype.

I say you have your sets of opinion. I am not a falcon fan nor am I a M.Vick fan,with that said,,I think that is to the extreme to convict a guy on allegations,,he haven't went through due process to be proven guilty. People say that their mounds of evidence against this guy, How in the world do anyone know what kind of evidence they have ,,,the media don't know,,They can only suggest that someone that the feds put a squeeze on can testify against Vick,,,That lead me to ask how reliable that source,,The differ in Pac-man Jones and Vick is this 1st time indicted with an alledge felony offense. Pac Man had his chances and he still tearing down bridges. Before ppl start throwing stones at Vick, Goodell or Blank, we should think,,if it was Bress going thru this same mess we will want him to have his same opportunities in the court system,,,if Vick does not get his,,,God forbid,,we have to go thru it cuz they will be looking at the same guide lines they use toward Vick saying if they were to force him out for a year

If you are a true Saints fan I don't believe for a nano second that you won't be watching the Saints/Falcons two games this season regardless of who the QB is. Anyone who doesn't think the Falcons and the NFL don't want to sack Vick are kidding themselves. They would make many more fans and probably more money in the long run by suspending Vick now. This is a case of setting a dangerous precident of suspending a player with no prior arrests for being CHARGED with a crime. Once you go down that road any player charged with any crime could be suspended. This will most likely be a situation where Vick faces a year of paid leave. It gets him off the field and out of the public eye and it removes the possibility of suspending a player charged with a crime for the fist time.
