Yeah, I think that's a really interesting point.

I think that the NFL and Goodell want to see Vick succeed. Imagine how much the league would benefit if Vick wins a Super Bowl. Now, Goodell can talk about how immature Vick was early and how he got into trouble, but after serving his time the NFL forgave him and he was rehabilitated with the help of the league. As much as I don't like the guy, Vick served his time and wants to play in the NFL again. Here's his chance. He better not screw it up, again.
