ATLANTA — Five Atlanta Falcons players have been fined a total of $47,500 by the NFL for uniform violations that stemmed from demonstrations of their support for banished quarterback Michael Vick during the team’s loss to the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 10

ATLANTA — Five Atlanta Falcons players have been fined a total of $47,500 by the NFL for uniform violations that stemmed from demonstrations of their support for banished quarterback Michael Vick during the team’s loss to the New Orleans Saints on Dec. 10.

Several hours before the game, Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison for his role in an illegal dogfighting ring that was centered on property he owned in Virginia.

Cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Chris Houston, wide receiver Roddy White and tight end Alge Crumpler each were fined $10,000. Wide receiver Joe Horn was fined $7,500.

It is not yet known if any of the players will appeal the fines.

Hall brandished a poster of Vick as he ran onto the field for pregame introductions. He later taped the poster to the back of the Falcons’ bench, but it was subsequently removed by a member of the club’s public relations department.

Both Hall and Crumpler wore the message “MV-7,” Vick’s initial and uniform number, on their eye-black patches for the game.

After White scored on a 33-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter of the 34-14 loss, he pulled up his game jersey, with an assist from Horn, to unveil a T-shirt that read “Free Mike Vick.”

It is not clear why Houston was found to have violated the uniform policy.

    It’s funny how double standards corrupt the U.S. Isn’t this where people from other contries come because of our freedom???? What happened to the Ammendments? It looks to me that all they are doing is excersizing their rights of freedom of speech and now because Mike Vick got caught up in something that doesn’t have anything to do with the game of Football; it’s against the LAW to write a message on your shirt that isn’t derogatory at all. I thought that all organizations had a brotherhood where you all stick together wrong or right and pay your consequences as such but now we have to castrate him because what? he made a mistake that some have done far more worse than others but I guess it doesn’t matter because it was probably tooooo Hip-Hopish for some? Be for real and recognize him for who he really is and not what you portray him to be. After all he is still agifted and talented athlete that stumbbled into some wrong decissions that eventually will pass and hopefully somebody learned from it before they made the same mistake not just with dogs but with anything. Don’t ever turn your back on somebody who is in the same organization as you because at the end of the day there are more Blue Collers then there are White Collers. Blue Collers make the excitement happen while the White Collers just sit back and enjoy whatching. Hmmm….food for thought…..get a plate!
