The NFL's decision in the Ricky Williams matter is ludicrous and the organization should respond in a drastic manner. We should refuse to field a team as long as the league continues with it's stance of punishing an innocent player (and organization). Tags and the rest of the NFL has always had an agenda against Ricky and this decision reeks of discrimation against African-Americans, hippys, and Buddhists everywhere. By not playing any games this upcoming season, we will wreck havoc on the league...just as they are throwing our season into dissarray. They'd have to give in and do the just thing....let Ricky play and continue his assault on the NFL record books. If this Dolphins front office willingly accepts this decision and refuses to put up a stronger fight for Ricky (after everything he has done for us), it will be a major letdown to me and I wouldn't blame Ricky for never coming back to this team again.

I realize you're pissed off, I am too, but that is a stupid idea. Boycott our season, which can still be a great one if Ronnie stays healthy and we draft a RB, just for one player?

If he broke the rule and took banned substances, he deserves it. Why should hold up the entire organization for one guy with a substance abuse problem?

:lol: Just accept it and move on. Sure it hurts, but it isn't a major blow to the team. Just a minor setback. Things still look good for this team.

Also he is a repeat offender so they don't have anything against him, he put himself where he is today. We need to suck it up, and move forward!:wink:

Are you serious? :shakeno: The league made a decision (probably the right one) and the fans and the fins will have to move on. Refuse to field a team? What kind of crap is that? I am glad you are not in charge. :shakeno: You should really think before you post. Get over it buddy. You really have no other choice. :dolphins:

Ok, now you're getting carried away. Ricky did say in a statement that he's looking forward to returning to the team in 2007.

i agree with you that the front office should put up some sort of a fight, if for nothing else then as a show of support for Ricky. but boycotting the season would be ludicrous. look at the numbers ok. if we get no revenue from games, how do we pay our players? how do we pay our coaches? how do we pay for stadium upkeep? training facilities? etc....

Why are you surprised he failed another drug test and is banned for it? I mean, I understand hoping it was a mistake on the test and hoping for the best, but come on, he's got a substance abuse problem. You cant be all that surprised.

This is a major overreaction. I loved Ricky and am quite upset by this turn of events, but the fact of the matter was that if he was guilty, he was guilty. It's not like he was arbitrarily suspended. He was already busted a number of times before for marijuana. Now, regardless of whether not this was an illegal drug, it was still something that the NFL banned. If you're going to be in the League, you have to know what you're putting in your body. Ricky had to understand he was taking a risk, and that if he got caught, there would be serious ramifications.

For you to take the stance that this is the worst thing the NFL has done in its history is ludicrous. They are merely enforcing a rule and a policy. You can take a stance against the policy, but the fact of the matter is that they aren't going to change it. It pretty much just happens that the NFL has one star player who can't stay clean from drugs and supplements. That player is Ricky, and he played for the Dolphins. It's terrible that it effects us so personally, but it's not the NFL's fault at all.

Don't the Dolphins have some players besides Ricky worth watching? Why would you bail on your team because a known drug user got burnt? I'm a Dolphins fan first, player fan later.
Besides, word was Ricky was going to be traded anyway. We may have been watching him run in Colorado.

Four joints is enough to get you banned from your profession for a year. I'm sure all of you agree with that statement.

It doesn't really matter if someone is kicked out for drugs, is involved with a murder, pumps enough steroids to cause mental damage, or beats their wife (ok..only one of those is bad enough to get you out of the NFL), we are all creatures of the corporate conglomerate called football, and no one will miss a game of a team they follow.

I know I'll be watching every Fins game, even though I'm appalled at the rules currently associated with the NFL. Such is life.

yeah the only prob with your bright assumption is that there has been no reason giving for the suspension. So you assume he still has an abuse problem based on the all powerful NFL and their right to trample on peoples rights and then not explain there stance.

You're missing the point entirely....if the Dolphins just stated their intentions, the league would cave and allow Ricky to justifiably continue his career. Losing a team for 2006 would be a trainwreck to the NFL (much larger than what this ruling is for the Miami organization) and they would not allow it to happen. I'd hate to take this drastic of a measure....but the NFL leaves us no choice and if we are to rightfully contend for the Super Bowl with 100% of our arsenal intact, we need to make a bold move of this nature.

Grow up dude. there are 53 other players to watch on the Fins. What did they do to deserve your anger towards not watching them. If anything you should be angry with Ricky for being so stupid. Actually I for one hope that this nightmare that is Ricky will be over for us. Because all we have gotten lately from him is grief in some form or another.

How many times can one player affect a team so dramatically. He has screwed the team so many times it isn't even funny. When he retired he did it after the draft. When he came back it was after we drafted a running back. And now we are somewhat screwed again because we can't get anything for him and we are short a man.

But all will be ok I have faith in Nicky filling the holes.

NFL trampling Ricky's rights! :lol:
You guys crack me up, seriously.

He failed a test..... AGAIN.

4 TIMES NOW!!!!

Neither you nor I know what the results were.
The NFL does know and had plenty of time to mull this over.

The NFL heard his appeal, allowed him representation to present his case fairly. IMO it would mean more for the NFL to have R. Williams back on the field so if they felt he deserves the suspension then he does.

As much as I would have wanted R. Williams back this year I can clearly see that Ricky only has himself to blame.

Wow... looks like somone has gotten into RIcky's stash. Ricky failed, he failed himself, his teams, his coaches, his family. The guy has problems and the team is better off without him. He is a great running back, but he is a distraction that is unreliable at best. His off-filed drama has ruined one season already. His only value to this team at this point was as trade fodder and he couldn't even get his act together enough to do that. He may have been useful this season as a backup, but he couldn't even manage that. He needs help.
