Michael Vick Suspended Indefinitely from NFL -- So What Now?

Before you

After taking a plea and admitting to participating in and sponsoring dogfighting on his own property, the NFL has finally convened on the matter and decided to suspend Michael Vick indefinitely without pay. In plain English this means that he is done playing football in the NFL.

So what now? Maybe when he is turned loose in 12--18 months, Arena Football will get its hands on their very own Beckham! Except Beckham never tortured and strangled dogs, I suppose. Vick still has amazing talent, and although his image will be tainted forever he may find work elsewhere.

Which leads us to today's poll question. Who would you rather be, Michael Vick or Tim Donaghy? I mean Vick is just going to jail as far as we know, Tim Donaghy is probably going to get whacked if he steps out of police custody any time soon by the mob. But hell, Vick's got money. Vick, I guess?
