    Looks like ricky's fate will be decided on monday for violating the substance policy again....unfortunately it wasnt for marijuana this time and people seem to think he will contest it. The alleged substance that flagged his exam is an herb that he ingested as part of his spiritual and yoga experiences.

    Everything i've heard or read has Ricky being a model citizen -- his teammates have given him nothing but praise. Ricky looked awesome at the end of last season in the starting roll - I really hope he wins his appeal.

    He will win it...If he had a legit reason like that to do it then he's good. Maybe be fined.

    ok seriously in this NFL

    Beat your wife. Ok just don't wake up the neighbors.
    DUI. You were checking the radio right?
    Get busted with a hooker. Long as she was legal.
    Busted during weekend coke binge. It was the hooker's right?




    Smoke weed probably stay at home and play video games. Let's Levy major fines. Suspenions are in order. Let's talk forever about what a disapointment you are.

    Seriously. He didn't beat his wife. He hasn't robbed anyone. He hasn't killed anyone. But hey the guy smokes pot. He's evil.:ok:

    Hey, that's pretty much consistent with other NFL policies.

    SCROLL UP He wasn't caught with Mary Jane. It was an herb that dealt with his holistic healings.

    But wasn't that the reason for his previous suspensions? Pot?

    I do believe Ricky and i do hope the NFL if this is true makes the right decision not to suspend him.

    Don't forget DUI and kill someone, but no suspension. (Leonard Little)

    while i agree to the basic point of the post, in that smoking weed isn't nearly as bad as killing/raping/robbing/etc, the fact is he's been caught THREE times. if your job is on the line, your career is in jeopardy, and you could lose your KIDS, if you keep getting caught, i can't feel bad for him.

    All I've heard is that Nick saban spoke on his behalf.
