Yeah but ...... Remember the local reaction (reportedly) regarding Vick? Surely Ben would be equally unmarketable in SF just when they need friends for the stadium project?Or am I wrong?
You would think that would be the case but the penalties for abuse of animals are often greater than spousal/domestic abuse. The reasoning on Ben might go something like this; that girl may have only been 20 but she looked 26, and how can she complain when she walked into a nightclub looking like a hooker, got drunk and starting acting in a very provocative manner. She was just as much to blame as Ben, so blow the whistle, let's play ball.
In a very liberal market such as the Bay Area, people would much more likely forgive Ben for taking advantage of a drunk who put herself in harm's way than Vick for shocking a poor innocent dog and then hanging it by the neck.
Just a thought...
