Apart from the obvious Vick situation, I have a feeling this also has roots in the dissappointing trend toward college coaches getting in over their heads in the NFL and taking the money and running. I really actually feel sorriest for the college recruits they originally bail out on in their sell-out ego quests.
Again, not to take away from your thread. The Vick thing and his players showing "support" all but validates his exit. Those players were looking out for themselves and not Vick.
