  • Ricky Williams tests positive AGAIN

    Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams tested positive for marijuana in April and will not be allowed to apply for reinstatement to the NFL until September, sources said.

    Williams was suspended last year for violation of the substance abuse policy and was eligible to be reinstated this month, but the league's medical advisors that oversee Williams' personal rehabilitation program recently notified commissioner Roger Goodell of the positive test, sources said.

    The doctors also recommended that Williams not be allowed to apply for reinstatement until September, sources said. The commissioner usually adheres to the advice of the medical advisors under the substance abuse policy.

    "Falling off the wagon is part of rehab," a source said. "Based on the medical evidence in Ricky's case, the doctors say it's too early to come back. He had the positive test last month. Remember, he's been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder -- that's a real disease and a good percentage of those folks self-medicate with substances like marijuana, often at the moment they are about to have a high level of social interaction."

    League spokesman Greg Aiello said the NFL would have no comment, as did Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene.

    David Cornwell, an attorney who has represented Williams during his substance abuse cases, said he would honor the confidentiality policies in effect with another no comment.

      To each his own. I have no problem with him self-medicating. He obviously knows that if he does, he won't be allowed to play in the NFL.

        Ricky has made a lot of money in the NFL, but not so much that he could afford to throw it away. I really don't see the point in smoking or taking drugs when you're in the league. Wait until you're out, like Nate Newton!

              lol. He seems like a really nice guy, but idk what his deal is. He should just quit pot for like 3 years, make like 5 million bucks, and then retire and smoke pot all day long

                    I'm thinking the Social Anxiety Disorder is playing a much larger role in this than anyone realizes. No competent person, no matter how much they liked being high, would mess up this often.

                    He has millions of dollars just waiting for him, yet he can't put the pipe down? My God, it's pot, not crack.

                      ^ Yeah, but there is a such thing called being a WEED HEAD, and that's the category Ricky Williams falls into.
