Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams was suspended for the 2006 season by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league's substance abuse policy for the fourth time.

He needs help.

What a waste of a potentially great career! It appears this time it wasnt marijuana in his system but something else. Now the fact the NFL has a drug policy, it should be followed, but not allowing marijuana as it is not a physically enhancing drug like Bonds prefers is not the greatest policy, but it is the policy none the less. He is a privleged man, and thousands would jump at the chance for his job. I think it is time he disappear and let someone else who is willing to follow the rules to get the chance.

Its still against the law, and it still sets a horrible image for kids to look up to. This guy needs to just go away, along with Baroid.

No doubt. What a terrible example as a man and as a football player. They should just give him the boot and forget that he was ever a player in the sport, the same goes for Barry Bonds, both should just dissapear into oblivion.

All I can think of is Mr. Mackey on South Park say "drugs are bad."

I suppose we need to go draft a damn running back now this weekend. He'll get cut from the Fish after this latest screwup. I say good riddance this time.

Try and get Reggie Bush from the Texans, it'll cost you a pretty penny though.

I would rather have Lendale White as he seems built to withstand hits more than Bush. I don't think we'll trade up for either of them though. I wonder how far the South Carolina RB will drop.

LenDale will probably be there at 17. His stock has dropped alot. Ronnie Brown and LenDale White in the backfield would be nuts. You guys should also go get a WR too. If going for a WR in the first round, I'd say either Santonio Holmes or Sinorice Moss. Chad Jackson will be gone by then. Going after Winston in the 2nd round would be good too.

If so we should take him. USA Today had an article saying he had gotten a little chubby over the past couple of months. i think he'd be a great deal at 17. A receiver would be nice. I just hope we have a QB to throw to them. Still undecided about Culpepper.

It is obscene how drug use can ruin your judgement and life. It can make you throw away everything good including your employment for that damm junk.
I hope they Dolphins can seize his assets for the money they are owed (about $4-5 million).
