VICK STORY GETS NO PLAY

Amazingly, the fact that Falcons quarterback Michael Vick a/k/a Ron Mexico a/k/a Ron Herpico has been sued for giving a Georgia woman a version of "The Michael Vick Experience" that left her with Herpes Simplex 2 has gotten zero play in the print and/or Internet media.

ESPN.com? Silent.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution? Nothing.

The New York Times? Zip.

The Washington Post? Nada.

USA Today? Bubkis.

FOXSports.com? Nope.

SI.com? Huh-uh.

CBSSportsline.com? Air.

So what the hell gives? Has the NFL twisted some arms to keep the image of the future of the league from taking a hit?

Or is the subject matter simply not palatable to the powers-that-be at the various media outlets?

It's hard to imagine a report on a lawsuit involving Vick's di . . . di . . . dilemma being beyond the bounds of propriety, given that we've been bombarded over the past few months about Jacko's allegedly wacko-ing. And then there was the whole Lewinsky thing from seven years ago, which at times made The Podunk News read like The Penthouse Forum.

The Vick story clearly is newsworthy, especially in an era where some NFL players are spending almost as much time in the court room as in the weight room. The notion that Vick allegedly knew he had an incurable STD that apparently can create serious conception and child birth problems for women, but nevertheless had unprotected contact with a female acquaintance is shocking to us.

It's no different, in our opinion, than a guy driving drunk or roughing up his wife. In any case, it's selfish, reckless behavior, in which guys who get paid to run, throw, catch, and/or hit for a living typically seem to be inclined to engage.

So we hope that this one doesn't get swept under the rug. If nothing else, shining a light on the Vick lawsuit might persuade other pro athletes who have similar conditions to ignore their short-term desires -- and to respect the long-term interests of their partners.

Here is the original story from ProFootballTalk.com on Vick:


"V" IS FOR "VALTREX"?

A Georgia woman has sued Falcons quarterback Mike Vick for allegedly giving her, in an April 2003 ron-days-voose, herpes.

Herpes.

Herpes Simplex 2, to be precise.

TheSmokingGun.com has a copy of the complaint, filed on March 14, 2005 in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Vick is sued both in his given name and as his supposed alias, Ron Mexico. The action alleges that Vick uses the "Ron Mexico" moniker "for the purpose of herpes testing and/or treatment."

[/quote]FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. - A woman is suing Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, claiming he knowingly gave her a sexually transmitted disease.

advertisement

In the civil lawsuit, Sonya Elliott, who says she is Vick?s former girlfriend, claims Vick gave her genital herpes in an April 2003 encounter.

In the complaint, Elliott, 26, seeks damages, alleging negligence by Vick, unwanted physical contact, pain, suffering and potential future medical complications.

In a statement issued through a spokesman, the Falcons said the team would not comment on the lawsuit, but hoped the issue ?will be resolved in a fair and expeditious manner.?

Elliott claims she met Vick, 24, in Virginia Beach, Va., in 2001 ? both lived in the area ? and had an off-and-on relationship with him before and after she moved to the Atlanta area in 2002.

Elliott, a health worker who specializes in geriatric care, took legal action after Vick refused to help her deal with the symptoms she says he infected her with, said Cale Conley, Elliott?s attorney.

Vick?s attorney has until May 6 to respond to the lawsuit, which was filed March 14 in Gwinnett County State Court

So if they're dating "off and on" aka humping, how would the contact be unwanted? Wouldn't she have realized something was wrong? Don't the symptoms show up fairly quickly? Weird. Probably another one of these douches trying to scam money from someone who's got lots of it. Or Vick/Mexico is a STD carrying pimp

Herepes is very difficult to detect (until a break out happens :wink: ) Heck, even doctors will tell you that the tests will give several false positives and several false negatives. I guess the only sure fire way to know is if you have a breakout.

Post UPDATE!!!!!!!!
from profootballtalk.com

Quote:
RON MEXICO WILL FIGHT HERPES SUIT



Falcons quarterback Mike Vick a/k/a Ron Mexico issued through his lawyers a statement on Thursday regarding the civil suit claiming that he gave a former girlfriend herpes.



"With respect to the lawsuit recently filed against him, Michael Vick wants all his fans, teammates and coaches to know that he intends to defend himself in the legal process but will not let this matter distract him from his primary goal of bringing a championship to the fans of Atlanta," said Lawrence Woodward, Vick's Virginia Beach-based attorney.



It's basically a non-statement, in our view. No one ever admits to any wrongdoing, especially when the allegations are fresh. Even if the allegations against Mr. Mexico are 100 percent true, the statement from his lawyer is standard stuff, and it says nothing one way or the other about the merits of the claim.



Vick's initial response to the complaint is due in court on May 6, and we likewise expect that that document will contain precious few details, either.

herpes can be transmitted even without a breakout. There is no cure for herpes but the # and length of outbreaks decrease with time and many only get 1 outbreak. Does not really pose infertility problems. Women in the US get CSections if they have an outbreak during late pregnancy bc it can be transmitted to the baby and cause more severe infections in the baby...Cliff Robinson had HSV2 also...
