If Ricky Williams wants to retire and smoke MJ with yaks as he seeks the key to enlightenment, good for him. You'll get no outrage from me about his decision to quit the NFL.

However, you imply that the NFL was exploiting him and making millions off him. Not so.

Do you really think that NFL revenues are going to crater this year because people are going to spend their money and their TV viewing time doing other things AND THAT the reason they changed these behaviors is the absence of Ricky Williams? If the NFL were actually leveraged on a player or two, it would have gone belly-up years ago.

The NFL will turn the same handsome profit in 2004 that it has in the past several years; the Dolphins will also show a profit without him. The NFL did not exploit Ricky Williams; they paid him for his efforts in such a way that he should not ever have to hold a paying job again unless he wants to. He made a lot of money; the league made a lot of money. That is called a partnership not an exploitative relationship.
