Argonauts pursue Ricky Williams
The Argonauts are going to take a run at suspended NFL running back Ricky Williams.That's the news from the Toronto Sun today.
The Argos added Williams to their negotitation list yesterday, a day after he was suspended for the 2006 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy for a fourth time.
Three quick questions come to mind:
1) Will the NFL allow him to play in the Canadian league?
2) What kind of salary could the Argos afford to give him? and, most importantly
3) Does this guy have any interest in playing football anywhere, nevermind Canada, which many American athletes consider akin to playing in the Snow Bowl against the Nunavut Polar Bears?
As for the various 'infractions' that have gotten Williams suspended in the States, Canadians couldn't care less — especially where I'm from.
