He was doing a yoga course in India and I think first missed a drugs test because they couldn't contact him.

I think he then failed a drugs test. He was found guilty but appealed it. He denied everything and even Saban stood by him (indicating to me that he was innocent).

However, Ronnie B will be good enough especially with Fred Beasley blocking for him

Happened 6 weeks to a month ago. Williams claims that the banned substance is in herbal remedies that he was taking obviously they didnt believe him and as a result of it being his 4th offence he is automatically banned for the season.

He's accepted the punishment, and it apparently wasn't marijuana he tested positive for. Story has been floating around for a while, took a long time for a result though.

No doubt the same old clip of Ricky holding two fingers to his mouth will make an appearance on PTI tonight. :rolleyes:

Gotta ask yourself why would he go to India for a yoga course. Maybe cos he wanted to miss a drugs test? He's only got himself to blame and he would be more respected as an athlete if he cooked himself into a clinic instead of just quiting. He's a disgrace to his profession and has let down anyone that looked up to him.

Talking of the Fins... wheres the best place to buy Dolphins merchandise over here ? Seems a bit excessive with the postal charges to buy direct from the Dolphins official store ?

www.ta-sports.net I think. It seems like they operate most of the shop seen at www.nasn.com
