    They may have had to wait for the new league year to begin and then the owners meeting.

    PFT is reporting that a team only has 50 days to file a grievance. I would hope that is not the case and it gets tossed on a technicality.

    I second that emotion. There are times when the Forum Family needs to quit drinking that Thunder Bird and eating them fried baloney sandwiches and do something as a united family.

    I posted on this last season. I'm thinking the Cowboys are going to get some money back on this. The Cowboys kept very detailed files on Ratliff, his progress, his workout habits, his physical reports, right down to when he stepped into Cowboy facilities, how long he was there, what he did (EXACTLY), when he was there, you name it.

    The Cowboys have been preparing for this for a very long time now. I believe they are going to win.

    Jerry seems like he lost a lot in gambling this year. Maybe too much coke or alcohol? A botched plastic surgery job? He hasn't fired anyone from his staff, though they rightfully deserve it. No free money, instead they got to play out their last year of contracts.

    sort of sounds like they had Ratliff punch in on a time clock. :)

    Oh, much more detailed then that. I think they hired people to basically watch every single move he made for a period of time.

    When did the Cowboys (Jerry) file his grievance?

    There aren't any specifics on the complaint filed, whether it's with the league or in court.

    Edit - just saw this on US News and World Report

    "The collective bargaining agreement does not cover such disputes, so the Cowboys have brought their complaint to the NFL's management council and the players' union."

    So, it looks like they might be doing this as a courtesy before filing a full blown lawsuit.

    Can someone please explain the difference between a complaint and a grievance? My local newspaper says the Cowboys filed a complaint with the NFL, but the local sports radio stations are saying they filed a grievance.

    Agree....Why they waited is beyond me. As soon as he signed w/ Chicago and played...they should have filed. now- it looks like just a hooker gold digging money grab

    These are the words his agent said the day of his release, one week later he was medically cleared
