Vick Owes


From the AP:
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons are entitled to recover nearly $20 million in bonus money paid to disgraced quarterback Michael Vick, an arbitrator ruled Tuesday. The players' union vowed to appeal.
...

The Falcons argued that Vick, who pleaded guilty to federal charges for his role in a long-running dogfighting operation, knew he was in violation of the contract when he signed a $130 million deal in December 2004.

Wait, the... the players union? Is this a joke? Since when are football players oppressed? Since when are they even considered to be part of the working man's world?

And on top of that, to add insult to injury, the union is going to appeal? Really?!
