    Report: Quanis Phillips was shot, after confrontat

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/06/25/report-quanis-phillips-was-shot-after-confronatation-with-vick/

    I can see this being blowing out of control. Don't see why people are blaming Vick. They guy threw a party, someone showed up unannounced and someone shot him. Why is Vick being painted as Tony Montana.

    Because people, especially fans of rival teams, love to jump on a guy when he's down.Yeah, Vick did some bad stuff before, but from what the article reports, there's nothing there to indicate any responsibility on his part.

    I suspect the "argument" was more about Vick trying to tell the guy to get lost than anything else. "You can't be here, dude!"

    Well, I suppose we'll hear more about it. Probably LOTS more.

    People get shot at birthday parties all the time.
    Why the fuss?

    It wasn't a Birthday party and I think that is what people don't understand. It was a Birthday event at a club. Basically, Vick was paid to host a party there on his Birthday. It happens all the time. So no one was sitting around eatting cake and ice cream. It's the way promoters fill clubs these days. A celebrity having a B-DAY contacts a club and shops around to see who will give him/her the best time ( money, free tables and champagne).
    As someone who takes pics at clubs in my off time, I can tell you this is a common practice.

    You would think after all Vick has been through that he would stay away from those kinds of places.

    yes, since dogfighting and having someone get shot at a party at a club they pay you to use your name for are two very similar things.....

    Yes of course.. He ran a dog fighting ring.. Therefore he shouldn't go clubbing at all

    I'm going to withhold judgement until more of the facts come out.
    The fact that Vick is not to have any contact with the shooting victim, yet he's at the same club doesn't look good. Vick doesn't get the benefit of doubt.

    Re:Report: Quanis Phillips was shot, after confrontat

    Granted all the facts aren't out at this point but read this article an it paints a different picture to just a guy goint clubing.

    Vick's Mistake: Having the Party in the First Place

    Let's go through the reasons why:
    1. He knows he's on a short leash.

    2. Helping to promote an event with open invitation is an invitation for problems. Even in my small midwest town, open invitations, alcohol, and minimal controls always led to a fist fight or two

    3. Obviously there was minimal security since a guy manage to get a gun into the party.

    4. He's expressedly told not to have ANY contact with known felons. Yet he has the party near his old neighborhood, which I imagine has his friends that are felons. Shacking hands violates his parole.

    5. The guy that was shot was one of his co-defendants, which who were expressedly stated they were not to associate with eachother.

    6. The facts are going to be blurred as I doubt anyone will provide info on what truly happened and Vicks whereabouts.

    7. I'm sure Vick got some money for the event and I doubt it was $5 mill which he's risking.

    I truly hope that Goodell throws the book at him. Vick obviously doesn't have a CLUE.

    He's on parole and is not to associate with any felons. Also, this isn't just clubbing, it's an event he promoted. NOT a golf tournament or other controlled environments, an open invitation birthday party at a club. BIG difference.
