The arbitration hearing in which the Atlanta Falcons will seek to recover $20 million of the $37 million in total bonuses paid to banished quarterback Michael Vick has been set for Oct. 4. Arguments in the non-injury grievance filed by the Falcons last month will be heard by NFL special master Stephen Burbank, the dean of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and likely in Philadelphia. A league source with knowledge of the NFL's arbitration procedure said Atlanta officials have been "especially aggressive" in the case and had pushed hard to "fast-track" it, perhaps in an attempt to bring final resolution to the Vick case. It is believed that officials from the NFL Players Association, which will play a role in representing Vick, had sought a later date for the hearing. It is not yet certain who will represent both sides. Players involved in such cases typically have union representation, often from NFLPA general counsel Richard Berthelsen. Teams often are represented, at least in part, by officials from the NFL Management Council, which is the league's labor arm.
