Quote:
Marcus Vick could be involved in shooting
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 30, 2010 6:36 PM ET

So I went on the Game 102.1 FM in Virginia Beach this afternoon to talk about Michael Vick. Before the segment was over, the hosts (Johnny D. and Bartley Barefoot) proceeded to break some news.

The radio station has sources that Marcus Vick, Michael's brother, was involved in the shooting that took place after Vick's 30th birthday party last Friday morning. It's uncertain what "involved" means here precisely. ESPN's Adam Schefter said earlier on Wednesday that he believes the shooter will turn himself in to authorities soon.

I was surprised initially to hear the Marcus Vick connection, and couched my response with a lot of "ifs" and "possiblys" regarding the situation. Barefoot had no such equivocation, saying his sources were sure Marcus Vick was involved.

We'll continue to track the story, as will a growing number of national sources. ESPN led their NFL coverage today on air and online with Michael Vick's timeline problem.

The longer this story drags on, the more uncomfortable it grows for Vick, not to mention the Eagles and Roger Goodell.

Vick could really use that shooter to come forward quickly.

Some people never learn. The Vicks are examples of this.

You know, you gotta feel bad for them..... Personally, Im a fan. I loved what Mike Vick can do. He was electrifying.... plus in the NFC so not much our problem to hate...kinda like Adrian peterson nowadaways, no reason to hate a guy in the other league that is a play maker like that...... And you have to understand his circumstance, that hes a punk butt, from a punk neighborhood, and got rich quick with get skill and doesnt know much to do with it in immaturity. And hes gotta lil brother that has this permanent media shadow over him by your own fame....... MIke Vick superstar. Marcus Vick (could be a sexy ATHLETE like his brother...... but under no circumstance is he anywhere near as gifted) and stuck in this shadow of the older brother, and more rebellious, and now is too brash to heed the warning of his own brothers saga.... this is all an example of bad apples just being what they are.... some people arent meant to amount to much even when granted countless numbers of opportunities not capitolized on, and resorting back to what you were exposured to in your unfortunate times. Shame.... I rooted for him to make our roster with Saban.

I think Michael Vick is a far better person than his brother Marcus. At least Michael has shown remorse and has been willing to try to right his wrongs. You will not find that in his brother. He's a habitual criminal. If he is guilty I hope they throw the book at him.

The extent of Marcus' involvement is unknown, but we can't say we'd be the least bit surprised if he played a major role considering his track record. The last Rotoworld post done on Marcus, in August of 2009, was from a report that he'd been sentenced to 20 days in jail for a probation violation stemming from eluding police. He's been in trouble with the law several times dating back to Virginia Tech. Marcus also has a history of gun-related arrests.

That not saying a whole helluva lot to say Mike Vick is a better person than his brother.

Exactly. But I wasn't saying Mike is a bad person, just saying he never learns. He gets into prison, loses millions and lets down the entire Falcons' organization, then a year after being shuffled back into the NFL he throws a huge party in the same area where those dirtbags are for sure to show up.
It's one to thing to have a party...it's another to invite 300 people where you can't keep track of what all is happening. Did he shoot anyone? No...but it's just dumb to even come close to being in that sort of situation.

I don't think Vick deserves jail time, or miss playing time...but he needs to have some of his money revoked so he's not able to throw extravagant parties. Just give him enough to eat and live comfortably, then see if he really loves the game.
