Default Is SF handling the Aldon Smith situation properly?

1. Aldon Smith gets busted for 2nd DUI on Friday
2. Aldon Smith is permitted to play on Sunday vs Colts.
3. Aldon Smith is taking a leave of absence but still getting paid from SF.
4. Return date is unknown at this point.

Did the Niners kill themselves with bad management on this one? It sets a bad precedent with everyone else in the club when the organization top to bottom values winning at all costs over a troubled player's steps to getting right again. Its not very far from the new concussion rule we have in place when they used to shove a player back in the game no matter what his head was thinking at that point after a concussion.

Its setting all kinds up of bad management decisions.

Lots of media debating this, whats your take on it?

I don't think there is anything anyone can do to save Aldon right now

a young addict with lots of money is an unstoppable force...he might sober up for a season or two because of this but after that he is going to start partying again...it's just a matter of time

As of right now they are right. Sunday not so much. Letting him play was asinine. I know they couldn't suspend him, but talking to him he couldn't leave 1 game earlier? What kind of message did that send to him? We need you because we lost last week but please get help after?

Von Miller and Aldon Smith are both ruining their careers because they are complete basket cases off of the field. What a shame.

Being as rich as they are, why dont they just hire one of their friends to be their driver and force that guy to be sober?

Aldon Smith has some sort of substance abuse or drinking problem. Von Miller likes using recreational drugs at best, and is just stupid. It's not a DUI problem. When you are drunk at 7am, that's not a good sign.
