    Ok...this is too big of a story right now not to have a thread.

    Can we try this again without the bullshit?

    There goes the neighborhood. [/channeling what the neighbors said when Vick bought the house]

    I took it down, boys. But if you really want the thread to take off, you gotta start with something other than a wish.

    OK, back on track so the troublemakers have to go to PMs....

    Does an encouraged "leave of absence" for Vick help all parties involved? Keeps him out of the spotlight which helps his image and the NFL's?

    I didn't think we needed much to get this topic going....just a request to keep it civil and on target.

    A leave of absence might help, but why would Vick agree to it?

    Whether it's the right thing or not, you'd think the best thing for Vick might very well be to take a leave of absence. With a fast-track prosecution like they're shooting for, Vick would lose, at most, one season, right? Not saying that's a good thing, but taking the time off to focus on the legal issues (and innocence) is better than losing and going to the clink.

    He could concentrate on his legal defense, try to repair his image, avoid football stadiums full of people who would be booing him (including, probably his own) and collect a paycheck.

    That was going to be my next question....if it would be a paid absence. If so, then that makes some sense.
