Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff got a D.U.I. after crashing his car into a semi truck while driving under the influence of alcohol. Ratiff was intoxicated when he crashed into an 18 wheeler. If it wasn’t bad enough that one of his teammates is facing intoxication manslaughter charges. The Dallas Cowboys players have to stop drinking and driving. What should Jerry Jones and the Cowboys do with Ratiff? He missed 10 games in his eighth season in the NFL because of multiple injuries. The 31-year-old dealt with plantar fasciitis, a high-ankle sprain and a sports hernia that required surgery Dec. 13 and left him sidelined for the final six weeks of the 2012 campaign.
Now the guy is out drinking and driving. These NFL players think they are above it all. They think they can drink as mush as they want and climb behind the wheel of a car and drive. They should have learned their lesson after the tragic accident that claimed the life of one of their teammates and is going to send another to prison. Ratiff’s days in Dallas could soon be coming to an abrupt end. Maybe he should get jail time to send a message to the rest of the team.
