Hopefully this kid grows up and starts to see the world as it truly is...

If he signs and does act that way, he will only be shooting himself in the foot. See Brandon Marshall as example. He would cost himself more money than he already has.

He will be crying because Singletary will be sitting his ass on top of pain hill every practice.

He would be crying harder if he got suspended and missed game checks. Singletary needs to work his ass off if/when he signs. He's gotta get in game shape.
Crabtree will sign, and he will be a great 49 for the next 4-5 years. He will average 10 TDs a year for us

there is my daily contribution to this thread
If he's ever signed I'll be pleasantly surprised but he's getting some stupid advise from family and friends. With mentors like Deion telling him he's doing the right thing he's setting himself up for disaster.

I think the 49ers would be best served by taking their offer off the table and lowering it every week he holds out.
That John Clayton clone/wannabe on NFL.com said that he expects Crabtree to sign no later than week 10 when of course he would stand to lose too much if you will. I say he probably signs week 2 or 3 when he realizes he's lost close to $50,000 in game checks.

When he does sign though it'll be a little awkward for whomever ended up caving in. Someone is going to have to answer some tough questions about why he wasn't at camp when it started let alone there for the season opener.

Holding out till the first game of the preseason? I'm ok with that. There is nothing wrong with seeing how much leverage you have and what you can walk away with, but this has turned into something absurd. Lose/lose situation....moreso for Crabtree.

Do we even really want him to sign?? I know he's a talent, but so is TO and you see what he can do to a team. Plus, Singletary is a no nonsense type of guy. I'm sure he hates crabtree already.

I see this being as the business side of things. Once this gets handled lets see how much of a diva and a cancer he is or isn't. Yes, I want us to sign him....otherwise it is a wasted pick.

From what we've heard about Crabtree the football player is that he works hard and is a good teammate. We'll see.
NFL.com stated, Goodell will be answering some question at 2pm EST. I sent in a question regards to what Deion said on NFLN of Crabtree, hope he respond.

Lets sit back and see what this bum has to say...
plus if Singletary held this against crabtree he would be a hypocrite considering he did this same thing when he was drafted by chicago.

Talk about people cutting their nose to spite their face. This holdout will set a precedence for future holdouts. From here on out the actions of players who are being ridiculous and holding out for more than their worth will be known as Crabtreeing.

Crabtreeing: The act of a rookie player holding out from signing due to the unwillingness to accept reality, hurting themselves in the process.

I just want him on the team dont care if its this year or next
Think about it: the amount of money it will take to sign this jerk would so much be better spent next year on a couple of GREAT free agents. Forget this guy. His crazy holdout is the equivlent of discovering that his forty time is really 4.75. He is flawed, he is poison. Count this a a blessing - he has revealed his destructive character to us.

What singletary did is a little different and becomes more different every day. I also don't recall singletary being injured.

He's already shooting himself in the foot because he gains nothing by holding out. This is the reason that I see him acting like pouting little child after he signs.


God, I hope I'm wrong...
