Atlanta Falcons quarterback and Virginia native Michael Vick refused to answer questions Friday about his ties to an alleged dog fighting ring at a home he owned.
Vick did vow to change his ways, saying that he's mindful of the way he's viewed by his fans. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who has already started cracking down on bad behavior, met with Vick.
If the case proves to be tied to Vick in any way, Goodell could impose a suspension of the quarterback. The animals in the case were found at a home in Smithfield owned by Vick. He says that he rarely visited the house and that he was unaware of any criminal activity.
