I'm probably alone in this, but I actually feel for Ricky. His history of depression and anxiety probably makes his life a living hell. It's probably why he uses marijuana. It's a shame the media can't leave him alone.

Nah, i don't think you're alone in it.

Ricky means well, and his concerns with his well being and staying healthy are very realistic.
Though he should think more about the smoking,
that doesn't help his health too much.

Yeh, he should stick with the legal meds the doc gave him as he seemed to do really well when he went on them but then like a lot of people with mental problems, once they start feeling better they go off their meds.

I heard that IF he did come back it would only be a 4 game suspension.

What's the latest Scoop? Anybody hear anything

This is from ESPN.. on August 31
Tell me what you guys think...


After word spread that Williams was possibly interested in returning to the Dolphins, he was added in 11.5 percent of leagues. Don't waste a roster spot on him, though, unless you play in a keeper league. Williams has no real plans to return to the team, and even if he did, league rules would prevent him from playing in 2004.

Funny how Ricky showed interest in returning after the Dolphins demanded their signing bonus back. IMO, this is posturing by Williams and he has no intention of returning. My theory is that he offers to return, hoping the Dolphins will tell him to go to hell. Then Williams would not have to give back the money; he can say he tried to come back and was cut.

He technically COULD play this year... possibly.

There is an undetermined amount of time (the NFL is hush on this), in which a player can unretire after submitting his paperwork.

The NFL already offered him a chance to pay a fine to undue 2 of his positive tests, since they were so low. So, should RW, Miami and the NFL ALL come to an agreement...

He could come back. Pay his fine. Serve his 4 game suspension and suit up for game 5. Should he choose to initiate the process. That doesn't mean that the Phins or the League would comply... but it is technically an outside possibility.

Lenny Kravitz: chains...slavery sucks dude, give 'em hell *puff*


Had a flashback about this post a couple minutes ago, not sure why. Funniest post of last year IMO :-D ;-D

I don't feel sorry for him. Life is tough on everybody, and I think my life would be alot less tough if I was a millionaire. But you don't see me running from my problems and trying to smoke my problems away.
