    Notably, the judge can reject the plea and remand the case for trial.

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Michael Vick filed his plea agreement in federal court Friday admitting to conspiracy in a dogfighting ring and helping kill pit bulls. He denied ever betting on the fights, or explicitly killing dogs, only bankrolling the operation.

    NEW YORK - The NFL indefinitely suspended Michael Vick without pay Friday just hours after he acknowledged in court papers that he did, indeed, bankroll gambling on dogfighting and helped kill some dogs not worthy of the pit.

    Vick, however, insisted he placed no bets of his own nor took any winnings.

    In disciplining Vick, commissioner Roger Goodell said Vick?s admitted conduct was ?not only illegal but also cruel and reprehensible? and regardless whether he personally placed bets, ?your actions in funding the betting and your association with illegal gambling both violate the terms of your NFL player contract and expose you to corrupting influences in derogation of one of the most fundamental responsibilities of an NFL player.?
