That's what I've been thinking since the story broke. But don't you think it has been severely underplayed in the media? I expected a major ongoing
hullabaloo over this, and it barely gets a mention.
This leads me to conclude that, somehow, everyone is on the same page (media, sportswriters, talking heads, tv executives) to give it as little
exposure as possible. I think everyone in sports is afraid of how damaging this could be.
To make matters worse, Michael Vick is in deep. The dogs are bad, but the fact that he was probably betting (illegal gambling is a major no-no for a
player) makes the whole thing worse.
I wonder how long it will take for the FBI to conclude their investigation? If they discover additional refs or mafia connections to this, I don't
see how they can keep the lid on.
