The NFL also wants to disqualify U.S. District Judge David Doty, who ruled earlier this month that the Atlanta Falcons would violate the NFL collective bargaining agreement if it tried to recover the roster bonus Vick already received. The NFL argues that Doty's public comments show he is biased against the league.

Vick is serving a 23-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to federal charges in a dogfighting operation. After the plea, the Falcons tried to recover about $20 million in bonuses Vick earned from 2004 to 2007.

First and foremost, I am an Atlanta Falcons fan and I loved Vick while he was here. But he put the city and the Falcons in a tough spot. I guess this is the reason he is still on the team. Hope this decision works out for us.
