    This is why no team should trade for Ricky.

    Instead of totally flaking out like he did in 2004, Ricky should have taken the opportunity to fight this stupid policy from within.

    Why is the NFL testing players right now anyway? How is that relevant? The players' union just doesn't have enough power in football.

    This is too bad. Ricky Williams would have been a really good bargain for some team.

    How about instead of Ricky fighting the system he just stops doing drugs. I've never seen such a waste of talent.

    If he really cared about playing professional football, then he probably wouldn't do it.

    Ricky is the greatest role model the NFL has ever seen. Period. :ok:

    This is too bad. He is hurting the Dolphins again. They could have traded him this year and got something for him, but now he is worthless to other teams in the NFL.

    We should all have the utmost respect for drug addicts because they are people too. :ok:

    See, if Carr had a drug problem, we would let that go, but he's bad and has a family. :eek:

    Well drug free, family-oriented Christians are evil in many people's eyes. Ricky Williams is a hero in many people's eyes.

    I know who my heroes are. Ricky Williams is not an influence I would want around my children.

    The question one should ask is, who has the cloudy vision?

    Either way it's a violation, but this thing isn't likely to be over for a long time. I imagine there will be a forthcoming appeal. Evidently, under the draconian rules of NFL substance abuse a guy with Ricky's rap sheet can be tested up to 10 times unnannounced monthly. After notification he has 4 hours to show up. Ricky didn't show up... so he failed. There's no telling whether he ducked the test, was otherwise detained, in Tibet, or any other possibility you can come up with. I imagine he or Steinberg will issue a statement today.

    Check out profootballtalk.com for all the details.

    I guess this will put an end to those seeing a trade possibility with Houston. Fox News Network reported news coming out of Florida that WIlliams has failed another drug test. The Miami Hearald report (confirmation by two sources) could not identify the substance. Dolphin's spokesman Harvey Green declined comment Sunday night. Sorry, I do not know how to post the article.

    This is why I am glad we are weighing our options til the morning of the draft. Alot of things play themselves out when you use patience.
