Nike and Michael Vick: What's Up Guys?

Michael Vick has a new contract with Nike. Wait a minute, no he doesn't. Vick's agent says he has a deal, but Nike says not so fast; he will only be supplied with product just like other athletes
without contracts. Now Vick's agent, Joel Segal, has no comment. I guess he doesn't. He's probably so busy putting out this fire with Nike, he can't speak about anything. Imagine how much trouble it would be for a sports agent representing high profile athletes to be on the bad side of the biggest product manufacturer in the world. No comment possibly means "I'm too busy trying to save my own rear end, as well as my firm's relationship with the most important and powerful product label in the entire industry to talk. Period." I'll tell you guys, until I hear further, I'm believing Nike on this one...
