You can call Ricky Williams dirty if you'd like. But if you do, for the sake of accuracy, you should probably be calling him a "dirty hippie," not a "dirty football player." Patriots safety Rodney Harrison went for the latter. From the Boston Herald:

Rodney Harrison, in fact, called it dirty. When asked if it was because Williams hit Vrabel below the knees after Brown already had scored, Harrison answered in the affirmative.

“You said it better than me,” Harrison said. “There’s no place in the game for that. (But) it’s part of the game. You have to protect yourself. It’s disappointing that guys don’t take care of each other, but we’ll just have to be on guard, because there’s some dirty stuff out there.”

I'm sure he's kidding. He has to be kidding. This is like Chris Henry saying that Warrick Dunn has character issues. It's like Scott Linehan saying Bill Belichick doesn't prepare his team very well. This isn't the pot calling the kettle black, this is the pot calling a snowflake black.

This is the same Rodney Harrison who was voted by his peers as the league's dirtiest player in 2004. The same Rodney Harrison was given the same title by the same people in 2006. And the same Rodney Harrison who was voted in 2008 as the league's dirtiest player by the head coaches of the league.

The Herald chose to play up the "OMG, Ricky Williams smoked marijuana!" angle, sneaking in a couple of clever digs like, "Ricky Williams hit a sticky issue," and "The Patriots weren't happy about getting smoked [by the Dolphins]."

If you want to bring up the herb, it seems to me that it argues against Ricky Williams being a dirty player, as potheads are generally pretty mellow. Also generally pretty mellow are yoga instructors, vegans, and holistic healers, all areas in which Ricky has dabbled.

Maybe Williams crossed the line on a play, maybe he didn't. You can make that call for yourself. But Rodney Harrison, who makes more dirty plays in a quarter of football than most guys make in a career, doesn't get the make the judgment call on anyone else.

He bitched about a legal block Bobby Wade threw on him in the last game of 06. He's a mark ass trick.

Personally, I can see why people had problems with it.

It's not like there's any LB in the NFL that is gonna catch Ronnie Brown in the open field. But Ricky and the Dolphins wanted to win and he was just playing hard.

F Rodney Harrison.

This is like saying its a ***** move to hit a QB on an interception. Its a game called football and there's contact, get used to it or go home.

Is Vince Wilfork going to say something too? Or will Belicheck complain about a coach not shaking his hand?

Gotta love Boston.

Wilfork was pretty quick to call Pollard's hit on Brady dirty. I lawled.

I like Belicheck and the Patriots because I respect what they've been able to accomplish, but I hate when people whine about crap like that. Get made when it happens, I understand that, but don't go and ***** to the media about it. Just the definition of a Tool.

Speaking of complainers.. WTF is wrong with Jake Delhomme? He is an average quarterback and whines about every single call. Like the Detroit Pistons in basketball.. It's ******* annoying to watch him jump and down like a kid throwing a tempter tantrum.

Oh, and Ricky Williams is simply awesome. Rodney Harrison not so much.

Nevermind Vince Wilfork sticking his fingers through a RB's face mask last season (Brandon Jacobs?) while they were jawing. Hmmm... What's more blatantly dirty?

This is one of the reasons why i despise the Patriots. Sadly, people associate the rest of the team with their "leaders", and that dirty schmuck just happens to be one of them. If you don't wanna get blocked while trying to make a tackle on one of their players, don't get caught by a "pot head" who was 20 yards behind you two seconds prior to hitting you.

I can't believe these guys.

Or Wilfork extending into JP Losman's knee, although that was actually good for the bills it was still dirty.

There's no player in the league I hate more than Rodney Harrison.

Obnoxious, terribly overrated (but he doesn't know it), dirty as hell, and now this.

Good god man, retire. NOBODY LIKES YOU.

The question is - Would you rather have him on your team playing for you, or across the field playing against you?

Witty thread title BOE, though I'm sure it flew over a lot of peoples heads.

You would be correct though, but I suppose if there was someone who knew what a dirty play was, it would be Rodney Harrison.

yea I hate the Patriots, running up the score and all that stuff. It is one thing to have a off-tackle w/ 2 minutes left then your RB takes it for 80 yard TD. But to pass and go for it is disgusting. I would have loved to see Brady blow out his ACL during a time like that. I was planning on them crushing the Ravens and if they were running up the score I wanted to see Ray give Brady a helmet to helmet hit then have Ray stomp on his stomach to let people no he doesnt take disrespect from anyone. And the whole Ravens game situation makes me hate them more because we should have won that game!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes some Ravens players have done some classless things to, as has any team but these tools take it to another level.

In similar irony, Joey Porter was reportedly whining about the Patriots supposedly crossing over to the Dolphins side during warm ups.

But Delhomme's teammates love his intensity, in fact, one of those times he was "whining" was pegged as fired them up and made them turn it around vs the bears. Even the defensive players love him. While you may thing he is an average QB, he is a top leader in the NFL.

As for the hit, I can see Harrison doing the exact same thing, so he has no room to talk. If it were someone more respectable people may take it more seriously.

Yeah, I don't know that he whines so much as just gets pissed off when the universe doesn't spin how he wants it, which isn't a bad thing in a QB.

I'm a Dolphins fan and I absolutely hate when Joey Porter opens his damn mouth. He needs to shut the **** up until he starts earning the money we are paying him.

But in this case, he's got a legit gripe.

Since when is it ok for the other teams FG kicker to walk right in the middle of your team when you are stretching and starting kicking into your FG? What kinda crap is that? There's a reason each team gets their own side of the field.

Too bad Joey had to be the one to bring this up. If it was a stand up guy like Chad Pennington, then everyone would be jumping on the Pats for being so classless but instead it goes ignored because nobody gives a **** about what comes out of Joey Porter's mouth.
