Ricky Williams violates substance abuse policy...

Postby Mercer Boy » Fri May 14, 2004 4:51 pm

I'm sure this may get moved, but I just heard on ESPN News that he faces up to a $650,000 fine for violating the substance abuse policy...

Possible suspension? I don't know all the details and rules - but if he might get suspended, that would lower his value a little!

Every star RB can pop positive for anything they so choose so long as it's not Ahman Green.

well, since its probably just weed, it's not too worrysome. if its anything else, it could be trouble.

Here's the article ESPN News was referencing...

It's definitely for marijuana.

With it being marijuana... I wouldn't worry much either. To me that doesn't lower his value in the least, he'll still be a solid RB in Miami, hopefully Wannstedt will hand him the ball enough... if he does he may be a top three or four back.

I don't think there be a suspension since this is his second violation and the NFL said if he does it again it's a four game suspension. And Ricky said he was exhausted from working out earlier that day, and his lawyer and people say that sometimes make people that would come out negative to turn positive. We heard this all before, even bein a fan of Ricky since he was with Texas it don't suprise me one bit. Its just a wonder who doesnt use Marijuana these days?

I don't think not getting the ball enough is Ricky's problem. He did lead the league in carries last year.
