i think no matter how he plays in the cfl some body will give him a camp invite. he will have to earn anything he gets this time.

i also think the only reason he is even playing up there is to stay in some kind of football shape

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

he was fine in miami last year, i think they still own him. He's still a decent NFL runner, and i don't think his CFL stats are really something to be concerned about.

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

He has the second most carries in the league, and the 5th most yards...he has one of the lowest ypc in the league...only 2 people are lower and they have only 28 and 9 carries

but i dont think his team is that good and i know their starting qb is hurt

I'm guessing it's more of a passing geared league.

i am pretty sure that the dolphins own ricky also, and if i remember right i think that Saban still wants ricky on the team next year. For some reason Saban likes ricky and was upset about him being suspended, not upset at him.

Also i dont think ricky ever complained about his salary either, he was getting close to league vet min last year and he was fine with that. remember he had to come back or repay the dolphins something like $8 million. so, you can pretty much add that to his pay in a way too..

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

saban likes ricky, cause ricky can still run. and as a #2 RB, you're not going to find much better. saban only looksk at talent and whether he can get that talent to show up on game day (which he's done fairly well thusfar).

Re: Why is Ricky Williams "sucking" in the CFL?

a pass happy league and only 3 downs to make a first doesnt equal a consistant running game

I wouldn't be surprised if the Dolphins set some sort of maximum carry clause on Toronto.

Really?

For the extra publicity I'm sure they would. I'm sure having an NFL player on their roster has helped sell some tickets.

Yep, if he doesn't continue to get a paycheck from an NFL team, his debt to the Dolphins will force him to move in with MC Hammer and Mike Tyson.

I don't know about MC Hammer, but Tyson could probably play in the CFL and they wouldn't even have to pay for a helmet.

What about the rest of you guys? Anyone else want to share their perspective about Williams? If not, thanks for those of you who have.
