Monday, February 20, 2006Not Again Ricky...
...Looks like this might be the end of the road for the embattled running back [Miami Herald].
Not I'm not going to defend Williams here, but I don't want the comments field filled with a lot fof trash.
If Ricky was an alcoholic, he'd be placed in rehab and treated with kid gloves because alcoholism is considered a disease.
However, Williams does recreational drugs and despite the fact that he's very obviously addicted and has a problem, the league just throws these guys off the streets. What's the difference between a drug addiction and an alcohol addiction? Why do we think that people can kick drug addictions easier than that of alcohol?
That being said me thinks he didn't want to be traded and this was the only way to avoid that.
