    I think if he were properly treated (assuming this is the issue) he would have been activated by now. I am more leaning on non-compliance with his medications and/or therapy meetings. The sense I got from Jerry quick interview by reporter was that Dallas did everything they could but it just wasn't working out. I think he will be released before Eagles game.

    Not really. More like schizophrenic.

    Charles Haley was crazy, and that worked out okay.

    I can't put this on the fan base. Ratliff has created this mess himself. I don't think he falls into the same category as those other players.

    The DUI mere weeks after Brown's death. Feuding with Jerry. Feuding with the training staff. Refusing to rehab at Valley Ranch.

    Ratliff is not a victim. Ratliff is 90% responsible for this situation as far as I'm concerned.

    I wouldn't call him "me first" but I think in those last few years in Dallas after Aikman's retirement he cared more about catching Walter Payton, and all the losing didn't seem to phase him.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of Rat refusing the team's orders to re-hab under the team's supervision, once the season started. The cowboys may be looking to terminating his contract for not complying to their requests, and recouping some of that salary.

    He won't come to ValleyRanch and won't talk. Organization won't talk. Teammates won't talk. Everybody walking on eggshells. It's like they're scared of him.

    It's just an injury. Why so much secrecy and tight-roping?

    Reckless speculation is the norm now.

    That's what I mean. He, and Jerry too, wanted that record. As a result, the rest of the team suffered.
