Crabtree freezes out his teammates

After the 49ers unexpectedly upset the Cardinals in Week One, we heard that some players believed based on conversations with unsigned first-rounder Michael Crabtree that Crabtree was thinking about caving in and taking the deal that the Niners have put on the table.
Crabtree apparently has since strengthened his resolve. Or, at a minimum, he has engineered his life to remove the potential temptations.
Per ESPN's Colleen Dominguez, Crabtree has changed his phone number.
Dominguez also reports on SportsCenter that several players don't know if Crabtree is coming aboard, and they don't care if he ever does.
Meanwhile, receiver Josh Morgan says that coach Mike Singletary has created a culture that's "just like the movie Remember The Titans."
So it could be that Crabtree will continue to have "zero fun, sir."
The Crabtree thread is gone...that discussion is closed due to members not being able to get personal and there is nothing to discuss anyhow...he changed his phone number so what ? Maybe he had it changed to a bay area number where he previously still had a Texas number...you guys turn EVERY little thing said about him into a big deal. Without talking to him personally you really have little to stand on as no one knows what is truly going on. Colleen Dominguez could be lying or she could be telling the truth (for all we know said teammates who claim they don't care could be PS guys and receivers down on the depth chart ie. Jason Hill), in that report she also reports teammates said when he gets here they will be ready for him to go and seemingly aren't holding ill will towards him. There are 2 sides to every story and the fans keep reporting on the only side that is speaking. The media is meanwhile continuously speculating.
With that said please keep this thread on topic as this thread is in regards to the tampering charges....do NOT shift the topic (FWIW that could get you warned as per the rules of this site)
and do not bother quoting me to respond as I have nothing further to say unless it is in regards to the tampering charges, I just hate how everyone assumes and speculates with only truly knowing one side of the story.
