I understand that this move by Ricky was classless, but let's take a look at how some of the other teams have treated other players. The Patriots cutting Lawyer Milloy right before the season starts.... Classless.
It's a business, Ricky was feed up, burned out. I've meet him, I live in Austin, he came to my kids school (Yes, got the picture) to visit my kids teacher (they were friends) and even said that he loved kids and would like to be a teacher some day. Right off the bat I realized that this guy walked to a different drum beat. He as quietly strange, very large, but strange. "Eccentric" I believe is the kind word for such a person. Very eccentric.
He obiviously has some mild mental problems. The social disorder, the addiction to pot, seriously lack of maturity. He has 3 kids from three different mothers. Some role model. He left the Fins out to dry.
One thing is for sure..... Haslett and the Saints are saying "Thanks God we got rid of that guy.... for a 1st round draft pick no less".
