he did wrong with the dogs, but really hope he can keep himself out of trouble.
OT - Michael Vick misleading headline
As mainstream journalism trends more and more toward the sensational, you have to wonder where it will end.
Can a misleading headline be considered libel? We need some big lawsuits to get accredited news organizations back on the straight-and-narrow.
I also agree with the above posters. I know what he did was wrong, but I'll always remember him as my favorite player just a couple years ago. Hopefully he gets a little smarter about even being close to these situations in the future.
COMMON CHEMICAL CAUSES THOUSANDS OF DEATHS A YEAR!!!
Oh yeah. It's just water.
Say NO to dihydrogen monoxide!
Did you know it appears in all nuclear plants?
Breathing it in can kill you?
If you get too much you die?
If you dont get enough you die?
(I'd have more but the ChemE at work left for the day)
It's the combination of two HIGHLY FLAMMABLE components!
i didnt know freep writers were getting syndicated to SI.
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
i'm afraid that this problem reaches well beyond sports (with more serious consequences in other areas). with news organizations scrambling for any dollar they can find just to survive, everything that happens is "breaking news" and only the sexiest stories make it through. maybe my memory is bad, but it sure seems to me that all of the cable news networks spend MUCH more time on trivial stories than ever before (e.g., anything to do with levi johnston). hell, as i write this, the lead story on cnn.com is "lindsay lohan's career of wrong turns."
unfortunately, whether it's sports or news, i don't see how it changes any time soon.
Though I have to admit that I will probably spend a lot of time tonight mulling over how it is that Lindsey Lohan's career has gone so far off the tracks.

He electrocuted dogs, man. I know he got jail time, but a mis-leading headline isn't the worst thing that should be happening to him, IME.
Well I don't think it's Vick in particular that is the problem here. It's just that the article headline blatantly misrepresents the story that rubs me the wrong way(I'd feel the same way if it were an article about Roethlisburger or Pacman for example)
I think a better headline would be "Vick: Delaying the Inevitable"
