Doug Stanhope: Drugs didn’t ruin Ricky Williams’ career. Drug testing ruined Ricky Williams’ career.
The NFL is so concerned about drug abuse that they randomly test Ricky Williams nine times every month to make sure that he isn’t smoking marijuana.
Of course, looking the other way as players load up on steroids and shooting players up with enough pain killers that they don’t feel anything – that’s part of the game.
Who cares whether players are constantly crashing into each other with the force of a Mack truck? Who cares whether NFL alumni spend the rest of their lives limping around crippled?
The important thing is that Ricky Williams doesn’t get high.
