Yeah he did what he did. It's a page in his book. We all are walking, talking books. We all have tainted pages in it. I don't see the point in focusing on this tainted page which was many many chapters ago.
Life is in flux, a lot of moving parts, intertwined, a lot of things have happened since then, to him, to us, to everybody.
So imo, either we focus on the current page of the book , the present moment, or focus on the book as a whole. Not picking out the tainted pages in the book, and then judging/damning the entire book.
I only know my point of view. I came to this thread because I'm a huge Ricky fan, and I actually care what he has to say, which is more than 90% of the other athletes.
So I'm coming into this thread in a happy state of mind, hoping to interact with other people that like Ricky.
I'm trying to understand your point of view. If you despise him, hate him, don't care or indifferent about him, then why even come to this thread. All the **** that is being brought up is years ago anyways.
This current thread/topic is about what he is doing right now.
I'm just trying to understand, but I just get the feeling that you want to ''out-argue'' and ''convert'' people against Ricky.
Like more than half this thread is ****ing arguing, it's just such BS.
I'm pretty damn certain no Ricky-supporter is going to turn against him because of arguing on this thread.
If you don't like him or don't care about him, that's totally cool I respect that. There is no right or wrong answer here. That should be understood at least.
I don't have a problem if you don't like him. I'm definitely not interested in getting into an argument over that. I don't respect you any less for your difference of opinion, so no harm done.
My quarrel is with where the thread is going.
I thought it would be Ricky fans discussing uplifting things.
Now it's like pro-Ricky people fighting anti-Ricky people.
I just don't see the reason for an anti-Ricky guy to come to this thread, unless to ''convert'' Ricky fans to their opinion of him.
I just don't like seeing the thread turn into a courthouse.
Call him an idiot all you want but it's worked out for him. So who's the one who really should be laughing?
I was once a normal kid
Till the Devil came down and flipped my lid
He gave me a switchblade and he gave me a muse
Then he vomited acid all over my shoes
I see this piece of **** thread finally hit the depths. How ****ing super. I hope you ****ers have at each other like Pam does Tommy's dick. By all means fling the insults and get it out of your systems.
Stoners verse Templars. Come on I want to see it, tis merely a flesh wound, bring it or are you too stoned or busy at church?

Lol ny you can't expect potheads to be motivated to keep up an argument it'll ruin a buzz

I can definitely understand the sentiment behind not giving up a lucrative career because you want to smoke, but Im not sure if anyone would make a decision like that with the sole reason for the decision being wanting to smoke some herb.
