NFL Bans "Ron Mexico" Jerseys

Sales of customized NFL jerseys bearing the name "Ron Mexico" and "Mexico" have been banned by the NFL. A lawsuit filled against the former #1 draft pick alleges that Vick infected girlfriend Sonya Elliot in 2003 with herpes. Ron Mexico is one of the aliases Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick allegedly used at clinics where he was tested for STD's. Elliot's lawyers are seeking Vick's admission that he used the "Mexico" alias--and perhaps other fake names--"for the purpose of herpes testing and/or treatment."

Waiting to see if this is true.

But after reading (several years ago) about Vick's family and friends cheering when former Falcon QB Chris Chandler went down in a game with an injury...then they threw stuff at Chandler's wife who called them on their boorishness....... well, looks like the apple didn't fall too far from the tree.

What! Threw stuff at Chandler's wife, I have never read any thing like that. As a friend of the family i know Vick's family would never do a thing like that. They have never seen his wife.
