Quoting YooYoo (Thread starter):
This announcement has been long time rumoured. Reason why this took so long to be finalized?.....sourcing out a "quality" source of "vitamins" was a little more difficult.
I thought B.C. is where the high quality Canadian herb is grown.......

I think the CFL and the NFL ought to have an agreement that anyone under suspesnsion for drugs or any other displinary reason by one league cannot play in the other. Such loopholes make it too easy for a problem person to continue to play. Worse, if they get hurt badly enough, they can really screw up their future if they have the ability to come back.

Quoting TedTAce (Reply 3): I do have to thank him for freeing up more money for the Dolphins!!!
Hell yeah! Maybe we can go find a good RB before the season starts. Good riddance to bad rubbish with that dingbat. Wonderful talent but he has to be a "sensitive hippie wannabe yoga guru" versus what we were paying his ass to do.
I give him 2 months in the CFL before he gets hurt or gets caught with drugs in his system.

What a bone headed move by the Argos, although living in Toronto even I can't claim to care about the CFL. However, with sports trying to clean up their acts what kind of message does it send to kids in Toronto that he got kicked off the dolphins a few times for using drugs, but sure, we'll take him here in Toronto. I definatly won't go to a game now, although I probably wouldn't have anyways.

Quoting ILOVEA340 (Reply 7): That i sort of an irrelevent thing in this case as he was in trouble in the NFL for doing something that is not illegal in the CFL. Why would they ban him? He has done nothing against CFL policy.
I think is would be fair for the CFL to also not employ people under suspension in the NFL. I am quite sure the CFL has similar penalties for those that violate drug policy and have random testing to keep their players healthy and playing on a 'level field'. I also want the penalty to be really served and not bypassed. Yes, I understand it is a 'business', but still, drug use shouldn't be ignored as something to be used against a person looking for such a upper level job.
In Canada, while they do have a slightly different attitudes toward pot and legality of possession and use of small quantities, normally anyone with certain drug charges or even a conviction for drunk driving, can be banned from entering Canada. If any of us were convicted of drug charges, I doubt we would be allowed to get a work permit to work in Canada. Williams shouldn't be allowed an exemption.
