Wow.

This is amazing to me. A friend of mine and I were just talking about how solid of a back he's becoming on Friday...then I go to ESPN.com tonight and this is the main headline. I can't believe he's calling it quits already.

More power to him though. He says he's happy now. That's what's most important to everyone I guess, being happy.

Source is here:

No shit. I wouldn't think he would be retiring all ready.

Dosn't he look like the predator with his intense hair? :twofinger

Ricky is a fucking headcase. He has been ever since he came into the league. It upsets me to see a athlete in his prime calling it quits like this. But I guess in the end if he's happy with his decision then nothing else matters.

Lets see, maybe he's just hoping to be compared to barry sanders. yeh right fool. when dopes like him retired early, no one gives a rats ass. go on man. btw, wasnt he just shown wearing a womans dress not too long ago?


edit: ok. should have read the article first..yes he did wear a dress...yes, he is a head case.

Well he was going to be playing for "free" for 4 games this year due to his little habit so maybe that had something to do with it.

Please don't compare Williams to Barry Sanders .......... Sanders was fed up with the losing ways of the Lions management .........just like the fans. They wouldn't trade him either so he did the only thing he could do after a decade+ of playing hard and getting no support from the owners of the team........ Barry was brilliant.........

I dont think it too cool to quit on a team when you are still under contract. Guys counted on his running game and the team is scrambling to find a replacement.

This dude has never suffered through working at Taco time, assembly line, cleaning, moving furniture for money. He will never know how well he had a source of income.

See ya, and dont come back.

Was surprised to see this as well...yea he does have some "issues" at times it was pretty bad..he wouldn't even leave his house the entire off-season for fear of interacting with other people. I'm sure the weed had something to do with it. Not sure what he was going to do now..i don't believe he's a "smart" man

Does he realize has responsibilty when he signs a contract. Fine leave when the contract is up but dont Fook over a team just cause you want to sow your wild oates in Asia.

If you need that just spend a week in Bangkok. Damm, with high pay comes higher standards isnt that right? I expect more character from people making millions.

i don't blame someone like him for quitting. he is set financially and football is a very injury prone sport. most of the time tho players want to win the superbowl and that's their motivation for taking the big hits for the team. guess he didn't care about that tho. :dunno:

+1 on that. Hopefully he'll blow through all his cash, Mike Tyson style, and have to learn what it's like to work a shit job.
