    All ive heard about since ricky came back into the newspapers is "lets trade him for some draft picks" and that great, if we can get a 2nd round hopefully a 1st round pick for him id do it in a heartbeat. but lets not get ahead of ourselves. first of all lets gets ricky's rights. If he files for bankruptcy (which is what people have reported he might do) we dont get anything he becomes a free agent, and we dont get ****! [​IMG]. i hope we are able to get draft picks for him. can u imagine if we get a first round pick from the oakland raiders or another team. With our 1st overall id get a Qb and with the 2nd 1st round pcik id get an o-line or the other way around depending on how the picks land. [​IMG]. But like i said lets not get ahead of ourselves lets hope we egt to keep rickys rights.

    I think it has been proven that the "Bankruptcy means FA talk" is bullsh*t. We own his rights now matter what he does.

    You might of asked about this before you posted this thread. It was ruled two days ago or so, that if Ricky pays back the money, files bankruptcy, The Dolphins still own his rights for three years. Thats why all of a sudden he wants a hearing, because he screwed himself!

    We can't forget that we gave up 2 first rounders to get Ricky. Our offense needs someone of his talent really bad. I know nobody wants to admit it, but even he would make our line look better. Ricky is a baller. I say bring him back, as long as he apologizes to the team and the fans.

    I heard on 790 AM on the way home that Ricky was inteviewed today. He apparently said that he has his "passion" for football back and would play for the league minimum, if he had to, because the money means so little to him. However, he clearly said that he would not apologize because he was "following his heart" and never intended to hurt anyone. Ricky's days in Miami are over whether he comes back to football or not. He realistically amounts to nothing more to us than a couple of draft picks and a distraction.

    ok, a lot of people haven't been reading whats going on i guess....

    Ricky wants to be traded. thats why he is trying to file for NFL eligibility before the 19 October trade deadline. He is threatening the dolphins with filing for bankruptcy if they don't trade him.

    In other words, he wants to play but NOT in miami.... and he is willing to threaten miami to do it.

    capiche?

    The best thing the Dolphins can hope for if we trade Ricky is a conditional second or third round pick. If we deal him (and I think we should), I think the draft picks will ones in 2006 so that they can be conditional on his performance next year. I'm not sure if you can trade a suspended player or not but he won't be eligible to play until next July so if you can't trade a suspended player, he won't be traded until then. He isn't suspended now but will be once he unretires.

    His public campaign could hurt him in filing for bankruptcy. If the judge determines he isn't filing in good faith (ie just to get out of his contract) the judge doesn't have to void the contract or even grant bankruptcy.

    did anyone else read (can't remember exactly where) that according to local (Miami) backruptsy(sp?) lawyers, Miami has little chance of upholding Ricky's contract if he files? That would mean his contract could be voided, and we get nothing.
