Dolphins | Williams reportedly failed test; not missed one
Mon, 20 Feb 2006 11:42:17 -0800

Updating ongoing reports, ESPN's Hank Goldberg reports sources have said Miami Dolphins RB Ricky Williams' violation of the league's substance-abuse policy was in fact a failed drug test and not a matter of a missed test.

Hopefully he didn't completely get rid of his house in Jamaica.

I never wanted him any. Sounds like Miami is the perfect spot for him, just pull the boat up to the dock, and unload

I'm dedicating this Bob Marley diddy to everyone's favorite NFL hemphead, Ricky Williams:

Easy skanking, skanking it easy
Easy skanking, skanking it slow (repeat)

Excuse me while I light my spliff
Oh GOD I gotta take a lift
From reality I just can't drift
That's why I am staying with this riff

Take it easy, easy skanking (repeat)
Got to take it easy, easy skanking
You see we're taking it easy
We're taking it slow, taking it easy
Got to take it slow, so take it easy
Easy skanking, easy skanking
Oh take it easy, easy skanking

Excuse me while I light my spliff
Oh GOD I gotta take a lift
From reality I just can't drift
That's why I am staying with this riff

Take it easy, taking it easy
Got to take it easy, taking it slow
Take it easy, taking it easy
Skanky taie it easy, taking it slow

Tell you what herb for my wine
Honey for my strong drink
Herb for my wine, honey for my strong drink

I'll take it easy, taking it easy
Take it easy, skanking it slow
Take it easy, taking it easy
Take it easy, skanking it slow

He is a waste of talent...It's really too bad. I like Ricky as a player. I think he could made it back to what he was. I would have to say it's over for good now. Another year out of football....He's not old, but not getting any younger either.

Personally, as long as it is not performance enhancing drugs I think the punishment should be left to the team.

10 tests a month is not ridiculous for someone who has failed 3 drug tests, and admits to love smoking weed.

And as far as your idea for it being left up to the team?? HELL NO!! Because then you run into the scenarios that if say Peyton Manning (as opposed to some 3rd stringer) tests positive for something, you know damn well that he won't be suspended for long by the team. It is drugs...Illegal drugs are illegal drugs, I don't care which drug they are. It has to be fair and across the board, and I personally believe the NFL is too light on their punishments. I think first offense should be the four gamer, not the third offense. 2nd offense - one year. If you are still drugging it up after 3 times, you do not deserve the priviledge (not right) to earn a $20 million dollar contract, and your stupid a$$ can have fun in the CFL or Arena Ball.

Well everyone has their own opinion on this.

If I was in charge of a rival team all I want to know is other teams are not gaining an unfair advantage - through performance boosting drugs or whatever.

As far as smoking weed goes - I think most will agree that he is harming only himself and his team - and possibly anyone who gets between him and his 'munchies'.

I dont think you can say that taking steroids is in anyway similar to smoking a joint or 10 - you have to look at the spirit behind the law.

i do see his point of feeling imprisonned by his job if he cant even leave the country for a few weeks. but thats the price you pay for being a star in the nfl
i agree. i mean if your gonna get caught and your a pro athlete your gonna pay the prices. 10 tests a month is like 2-3 a week. now i quite frankly think it's crazy, but i have heard that sh!t stays in you for three days. so ten tests a month means no more!!!! but if he's really stupid enough to start again then it's his own fault. now the only thing i could think of is he says season over drugs begin, but if he's knows their gonna test him than he's just a flat out idiot!!!
