I thought I remembered reports like this. For a time, it sounded like Vick was totally in the clear. But the talk now seems to indicate that this was never the case.

Our modern needs require a constant information flow. Long gone are the days of news once or twice a day. We must have a constant supply of updates and info. As the result, reports like this occur.

I for one am one of these news junkies. I dial up CNN.com and Foxnews.com and many other news sources about 5-6 times a day. I like having information.

But, I like laughing at these information suppliers when they screw up.

The thing I don't understand is how Vick didn't know that there were houses built (presumably for dog fighting - they don't go with anything else and are painted black, presumably to escape detection at night) on his property? I wouldn't assume that I could build houses on my cousin's property, even if he lets me stay there, without telling him. (Putting on dogfights there doesn't seem like a good idea, either, but if I had decide to be stupid and do that, I can sort of see not telling him). This seems to be a problem for the assumption that Vick wasn't involved.

I'm not going to rush to judge Michael Vick guilty (or innocent), but you're right, Hap, it does seem like you wouldn't go and do something on your cousin's property without asking permission first.

And it seems especially dumb if you're hosting dog fights on your cousin's property when your cousin is one of the most marketed athletes in the country.

I'm just amused that ESPN's sources told Mortensen and Pasquerelli the exact wrong thing and then they went to press with it. In fact, I just chuckled again.
