MVP – Mike Vick’s Planet

I like it when people start to criticize and complain. He tells me that the fear of change
it’s in the air and that’s the way they are forced to deal with it. It means to me
that someone is doing something right. Of course, there are those who charge for

you don’t really need. But something is happening now that the league didn’t
ask: a thorough review of the entire look of the game.

Soccer is a team sport, much more than any other major sport. That in itself

heights never before seen or imagined. But there is another level of athletics

I thank Lawrence Taylor for changing the way defense is played. You can now point to

Mike Vick is the most exciting player in soccer, if not the most exciting athlete in
Sports. He has led a perennial underdog to elite status in the National Soccer League.

Regardless, I don’t like what I hear about MVPeriod. People who think that

The strong winds of change are reshaping the landscape of American football. Some
are having a hard time accepting that the top players will rule the future, not
only football, but all sports. It’s not about 300 yards anymore, 2TD afternoons
it’s about the inevitability of the MVPrototype becoming the future of the NFL QB.
Eventually, critics will have to sing MVPraises.
