    have u watched the cfl??? hes not going to demolish the league because a team only runs once or twice per possession. he might get his yards with those carries but dont expect him to have 200+ yard games.

    I am with you he will demolish when he gets the ball, say what you want but he has put back on pounds he lost and he is a great RB when he is not high as a kite.

    Houston, again.
    250K and risk of injury??? If it was a couple of mill to help pay his bills off that would be different, but 250K? Not sure why he would want to do this other than to keep in shape.

    How on earth do you live in Toronto and can be a Texans fan? You must like pain and dissapointment.

    Good luck Ricky! He is still one of my favorite running backs, and I am an Aggie fan.

    he needs the money.

    i doubt he'll dominate as some people think. the CFL is a passing league which places emphasis on small speedy backs to stretch the sides of the field. he'll be impossible to tackle, but he probably won't even get 20 carries a game. i'd say 1300-1400 yards for him.

    you have to remember that the CFL plays more games in a season

    i say 1900-2200

    and i think he will be a really good back

    and the CFL isnt that much more passing then running

    actually it is. especially toronto, who ran the fewest times in the whole league last year. taking in all the considerations (less downs, new type of offense to learn, playing several months earlier than usual, etc), i don't see him dominating.

    Did you guys happen to see this............Hey Joe guys make mistakes, and Ricky really looks like he is trying to be a better guy...........does his interviews without his helement on and HE SHAVED HIS FACE, AND the fact that he took a contract to play in Canada proves he wants to play football again.
