At what point do we just recycle "Ricky tests positive" threads?

    If, by nimrods, you mean the ONE person who said he wasn't in shape.

    Oh my God Simon you are an idiot.

    He is in shape compared to the average person --- like you, who I imagine is a mustard and beer-stained wife-beater shirt wearing fat ass -- but he has never gotten himself and kept himself in top condition, which, along with his love for all things chronic, is why he is and will always be an underachiever.

    One thing is for sure, he's addicted to the shit and he'll never put the bong down.

    Talk about a career that is "Up in Smoke." These guys should know...

    So what is your point -- that Ricky is a good break dancer?

    Maybe that will get him a role in Beat Street III but I'm not sure why that is relevant to his NFL (non) career.

    I thought it was that he could suck himself off. I was actually pretty impressed.

    He was in incredible shape with the Dolphins.

    1853 yards behind an awful line in 2002.

    Arguably the best rushing season ever.

    And who defines underachievement?

    Joe Scribe says Ricky should be an NFL running back, so anything less is "underachievement."

    Well, I think Ricky has made it clear that he doesn't particularly care for the NFL lifestyle. He doesn't like getting punished. He doesn't like living under the draconian rules of people like Nick Saban and Tom Coughlin and all the other 18-hour-day "geniuses".

    He does, however, like pot. And he does appear to like living life under his own terms.

    Which probably makes him, all things considered, a happier person than most.

    And speaking only for myself, I'd rather be a happy "underachiever" than a miserable "overachiever."

    Trying to stay off the ganja is like trying to give up smoking cigarettes, crack, eating sweets, etc. My heart goes out to someone who is basically a good guy.

    Giving up ganja is much easier (for most people... though not those with SAD) than the others you mention.
