The Smoking Gun

Michael Vick Hit With Sex Suit
Woman claims star NFL quarterback passed along herpes in 2003
APRIL 5--Claiming that Michael Vick gave her herpes, a Georgia woman is suing the star NFL quarterback for negligence and battery. According to the below lawsuit, Sonya Elliot, a 26-year-old health care worker, was infected with the sexually transmitted disease in April 2003 after an unprotected encounter with Vick at the athlete's Duluth, Georgia home. Elliott alleges that after testing positive for Herpes Simplex 2, she confronted the Atlanta Falcons star, 24, about her condition. "I've got something to tell you. I've got it," Vick admitted to her, according to Elliott's State Court complaint, which alleges that Vick then told her that "he had not known how to tell her about his condition, and that it was not something that he liked to talk about." Elliott's complaint also contends that Vick "apologized profusely" for not telling her he was infected with the STD. Elliot's lawsuit alleges that Vick has used the name "Ron Mexico" and, in a related court filing, her lawyers are seeking Vick's admission that he used the "Mexico" alias--and perhaps other fake names--"for the purpose of herpes testing and/or treatment." In her lawsuit, Elliott states that she met Vick at a Virginia Beach nightclub in May 2001 and, shortly thereafter, began a close personal relationship with the football star (though the couple did not have sex until late-2002). Last December, Vick, the top overall pick in the 2001 National Football League draft, signed a ten-year, $130 million contract with the Falcons, the richest deal in league history.


Ron Mexico!

Isn\'t it ironic that she was a health care worker???

And god knows if this crap is true, but couldn\'t Vick come up with a better alias than \"Ron Mexico?\" That would be a lousy name for even the lowest-budget porn star.

VICK STORY GETS NO PLAY

Amazingly, the fact that Falcons quarterback Michael Vick a/k/a Ron Mexico a/k/a Ron Herpico has been sued for giving a Georgia woman a version of \"The Michael Vick Experience\" that left her with Herpes Simplex 2 has gotten zero play in the print and/or Internet media.

ESPN.com? Silent.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution? Nothing.
The New York Times? Zip.
The Washington Post? Nada.
USA Today? Bubkis.
FOXSports.com? Nope.
SI.com? Huh-uh.
CBSSportsline.com? Air.

So what the hell gives? Has the NFL twisted some arms to keep the image of the future of the league from taking a hit?

Or is the subject matter simply not palatable to the powers-that-be at the various media outlets?

It\'s hard to imagine a report on a lawsuit involving Vick\'s di . . . di . . . dilemma being beyond the bounds of propriety, given that we\'ve been bombarded over the past few months about Jacko\'s allegedly wacko-ing. And then there was the whole Lewinsky thing from seven years ago, which at times made The Podunk News read like The Penthouse Forum.

The Vick story clearly is newsworthy, especially in an era where some NFL players are spending almost as much time in the court room as in the weight room. The notion that Vick allegedly knew he had an incurable STD that apparently can create serious conception and child birth problems for women, but nevertheless had unprotected contact with a female acquaintance is shocking to us.

It\'s no different, in our opinion, than a guy driving drunk or roughing up his wife. In any case, it\'s selfish, reckless behavior, in which guys who get paid to run, throw, catch, and/or hit for a living typically seem to be inclined to engage.

So we hope that this one doesn\'t get swept under the rug. If nothing else, shining a light on the Vick lawsuit might persuade other pro athletes who have similar conditions to ignore their short-term desires -- and to respect the long-term interests of their partners.

Agreed, they\'re not going to want to taint the image of the NFL\'s newly crowned savior. It\'s a shame.

I think I\'ll call sports radio this afternoon (in Atl) and see what\'s going on...or at least stir the pot.

This would be fantastic news. The fairweather fans in Atl won\'t know what to do. Please, let this be true.

I heard it just 5 minutes ago on \"The Herd\" on ESPN radio in Austin.

Two things...

1. Nowhere in the article did it say that Vick knew at the time of the transaction ;) that he knew he had the herp.

2. dberce said, \"taint\" :o

I have a vision.....It is an Atlanta Falcons jersey with the vaunted \"7\" and R. Mexico where Vick once was. I could wear it to the Saints Falcons game in Atl :dancingmonkey:

You would think a health care worker would realize unprotected sex with a rock star like Vick could lead to trouble. Maybe she wanted that paternity money and instead got the gift that keeps on giving.

Like Eddie Murphy said.....Herpes is like luggage, you keep it for life :beatnik:

Maybe some of the jock sniffers will think twice now.

\"The difference between love and herpes - is that herpes are forever.\"

So Vick is \'tainted\', eh? Severe herpes breakouts lead to fever, and they occur mostly in times of severe stress. I wonder what effect (if any) that\'ll have on old Ron Mexico in times to come. IE big games, etc.

Something to consider.

Gotta create an uncomfortable dynamic in the team showers, eh?

Even more reason to leave the soap where it falls if you drop it.
