    here's the thing...

    you've been in dallas your entire career. you know no other team, no other city, no other way of life. you are established here and you have a great opportunity to play for the best dline coach in the nfl. your brothers ware and hatcher have been by your side thru many years of disappointment. now your boys are hurting. ware is hurt, spencer is out, brent is in jail, crawford is gone. your team NEEDS you. this franchise NEEDS you. the FANS...the only fans you know...NEED you. what the hell could make someone so stubborn to not give one damn about any of this is beyond me and is really starting to tick me off. stop being an emo weirdo and suit up rat. this is coming from a ratliff defender since day 1. i'm really sick of this ****.

    He thinks he needs further surgery or more time on his groin. The Cowboys think he can play through it. He thinks if he does he'll need more surgery at the end of the season, when he'll likely be unemployed.

    How do you know what Ratliff thinks? Honest question.

    It's been from a lot of "friend of a friend" sources. I 100% understand if you or someone would call B.S. on that sort of thing, and I can't say I wouldn't do that myself if I hadn't heard it from enough different people to believe it.

    Thanks. He's not doing himself any favors by being so secretive.

    The Cowboys should be able to susped him or fine him. How can you get paid so much money and not even have the decency of rehabing with your team.

    He should give half his pay to Hatcher.

    i think this could be part of it. but he's been paid. he's already received his big contract. what is he saving himself for?

    I think that the Cowboys should do something about that. If he doesn't practice with the team, then he should take a pay cut or not get paid at all. Doesn't the contract state that? If not, then Rat really worked the Cowboys over and this is no one's fault except Jones.

    We could not cut him if we wanted to if I understand the numbers correctly.

    Could be they would like to talk to Ratliff personally about what they want to do out of respect for the player before telling the media he's being released.

    Could be they are trying to decide whether to release him, let him play out his rehab time or put him on IR for the rest of the year/

    There's no advantage to saying anything about it until they are ready to make a move.
