Call off the SWAT team, Michael Vick's Super Bowl party has been cancelled.
On Thursday, TMZ.com alleged that Vick was tied to a party in Dallas that would involve an intense amount of security and even a SWAT team, huffingtonpost.com reports.
As anyone familiar with the NFL remembers, the last party Vick hosted (last summer for his birthday) resulted in one of his dog fighting buddies getting shot.
Two sources close to Vick have stepped up to defend him and to deny that he was attending any parties in Dallas. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he spoke to him in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, and Vick assured him he would not be attending any uper Bowl parties, according to sportingnews.com.
"I spoke to Michael three times in the last two weeks about his schedule here," Goodell said. "He has said on numerous occasions people have been using his name about being involved in some type of party and he had no intention of participating in that. I'm extremely proud of what Michael has done. He's taken his responsibility seriously."
Vick's mentor and former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy also had something to say about Vick supposedly hosting a party.
"He is not going to be attending. I don't know where it started or what, but he's not going to be there. I think he understands it's something that's just not worth it to him."
