No they didnt make a mistake, kevin lynch first thouht they did also, but after the game it made more sense. By playing Aldon they showed to him that he has all of there support and comradery to help him beat his problem. Which can be very very crucial when it comes to addictions. Everyone who has a problem wih that including ditka, beat writers and all the fans stuck on there moral high horses can ead.
I think they took the problem with Aldon with the seriousness that it merits.
I think they tried to make the best decision that they could with the information that they had.
They did not feel that sitting him, or suspending him, would have been helpful.
In my opinion, the team has responded well to this problem.
They have made it clear that will support him as long as he continues to work to eliminate his problems.
