Nike ends contract with Vick


BEAVERTON, Ore, Nike has terminated its contract with NFL star Michael Vick, following the news that the Atlanta Falcons quarterback would enter a guilty plea for dogfighting charges after admitting in a court filing that he helped finance the fights and supported the killing of underperforming dogs.
