Default Williams' NFL future on the line

Just when you thought he may have turned his life around. Oh well, at least he didn't get caught for the same thing again. Wonder what the so called "herb" was.....


Quote:
The football future of Miami Dolphins tailback Ricky Williams, both short- and long-term, could be on the line Monday, as the NFL convenes a hearing to consider the appeal of the erstwhile runner to allegations that he again violated the league's substance abuse policy.

The hearing will be held in New York and, unless Williams is successful in his appeal, he faces a year-long exile from the league. According to reports, Williams tested positive, likely in December toward the end of the 2005 season, to a substance banned by the league.

In at least three other violations, Williams tested positive for marijuana. Several sources have claimed that the substance in the latest positive test was not marijuana. There have been suggestions that Williams will contend in his appeal that he ingested an herb which registered a red flag. Williams has been a student of holistic medicine for the past two years and the use of herbs is substantial in that practice

I believe the herb was weed, with some cocaine on the side.

i think its BS ,that the burnout is even getting a hearing.the nfl should have a no tolerance policy,which means you get caught once,your out for good. hey if i came out positive on a test,i don't get a hearing....i get my walking papers!!! these bums should get the same treatment.

i remember in midseason when there was a little uneasiness about whether willie could get the job done and our lack of a stretch the field wr, playing devils advocate i suggested we could easilly add t.o. AND r.w. this wasnt received to well, however winning the sb proved the sky wasnt falling after all.

so ill take credit for starting a thread but the point was, theres more than one way to skin a cat and steelers do it the right way.

even today, while a grand slam hitting wr or rb would be nice, i still dont think its our most desperate need.
