    We need to get rid of him period. Along with Brent. DT just might be the pick at 18 now. Sylvester Williams is right at the top of the list along with Bennie Logan.

    The smart decision would've been to call a cab.

    This is moronic in light of recent history. You just know they went over this exact situation with all these players calling the number on the back of their union card.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    Really, it amazes me that someone who has money can't call a cab after a few drinks. Ya think he could afford it?

    There is no way that a team cannot release a player. They may have to pay him, but the league/players union cannot dictate who is on a roster.

    You see, somebody found the silver lining.

    Watkins is getting way too much enjoyment out of this. Over the line if you ask me.

    A lot of excuse making sure. Not only should he not be cut because his contract is ironclad, but also because people drink drunk all the time, and Ratliff may never have been caught drunk driving before.

    The contract thing I get. But driving drunk after what happened just months ago? Are you serious? That's not an error in judgement, that's sheer stupidity.

    Well, you'd be exactly wrong. You cannot release the guy for this unless there is something in his contract that provides for it. Go read the CBA.

    I thought in Texas if you refuse the sobriety tests that automatically kicks in the blood test. I could certainly be wrong.

    How am I making an excuse for him since all I said was wait for the facts and that I might have a harsh judgment if and when?

    So they do it this way. They say they were going to cut him after the super bowl anyway(which is the first you cqan cut guys). And it is only a performance-based decision.

    Don't know, but the cops just can't do a breathalyzer/blood test on anyone involved in an accident. They have to have some probable cause or reasonable suspicion or whatever. It would be interesting to know what it is in this case......

    LatinMind..we need you as a DWI patrol. There would be a lot less of these idiots driving drunk if you were in charge.
