Default Ricky Williams - Done For Good?

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5345528

It's pretty sad that such great talent is being wasted like this. Ricky was one of the league's premeire running backs just a few seasons ago, now he's nothing but a has-been.

Yeah , when people like Ricky waste their talent on trivial things it acts like almost a slap in the face to all the people that would kill to have physical ability and talent like that.

When losers like this fail repeated drug tests why are they not criminally prosecuted?

Because you have to catch them actually in possession, under most circumstances. The only exceptions I know of are in Nevada, where someone can be arrested for "being under the influence of a controlled substance," and Michigan, where they do consider it "possession" if someone has illegal drugs in their system (presumably determined by doing a blood and/or urine test).

I wish he would realize he has plenty of smoking days AFTER his career is over. Now is the time to earn big bucks to set you up for the rest of your life, but Ricky is jeopardizing that.

I don't understand you hear all this guys after there done playing that they smoked all the time and never got caught. Is Ricky trying to get caught or is he to burnt to take the precausions to cover up.

Well, the thing is he probably smokes too much. There are things one can take to mask weed, but like birth control, it does not always work. But, the rumors are that it was something other than Marijuana that he tested positive for. Seeing as he dropped a lot of weight during his time off I wouldn't be surprised if maybe he was taking a supplement of some sort to pack on a little more weight. His mother claims it was some sort of substance he uses for doing yoga...

Well seeing as though he dropped the weight and didn't seem to gain much back even through the workouts he may be on Cocaine. That may be what he failed for. It is a terrible thing to suggest but it may be true because it makes you drop alot of weight which he did.

I doubt it was cocaine. Ricky seems too "Zen" to do a hard drug like that. I do blame him for walking out on the Fins a few years back, but see nothing wrong with someone who just wants to smoke pot all day as long as they aren't bothering anyone.

Now excuse me as I have to hang a Bob Marley poster in my bedroom...

Besides that Ricky always claimed he smoked to help him with anxiety and ADD. He said it helped to calm him down. So, coke is the last thing he is likely to be taking.
