    Ricky Williams will continue to play professional football with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts while he is suspended for one year by the NFL, and one high-profile ex-Argonaut isn't thrilled by the move.

    Former quarterback Joe Theismann, who began his professional career with the Argonauts and later went on to star in the NFL with the Redskins, said he was "embarrassed right now to be a Toronto Argonaut" in an interview with ESPN Radio's Colin Cowherd.

    "I don't ever want to be mentioned in the same breath as Ricky Williams as a football player. He's a disgrace to the game. The man doesn't deserve to play football. He should go on with his life and treat his drug addictions or go do whatever he wants to do. He's been suspended from the National Football League on multiple occasions. Doesn't anybody have any class anywhere? For gosh sakes, let the kid go do what he wants to do. He doesn't want to play football," Theismann, who is part of ESPN's Monday Night Football announcing crew, said.

    Williams was suspended by the NFL for the entire 2006 season following a fourth positive drug test. But the Dolphins gave him permission to play this year in the CFL, and he signed with Toronto on Sunday.

    Theismann, while calling Williams a "good kid" said he believes that the running back has had too many chances.

    "We have rules in the National Football League. It's real simple. Don't do drugs and you can play. It's a privilege to be able to play professional football. It's not some rite of passage. He's insulted the Miami Dolphins after they took him back and gave him a chance to play. Now he insults the intelligence of everybody that thinks that doing drugs is OK. To me, it's the wrong message to send to kids. It's the wrong thing to be doing, and the Toronto Argonauts have embarrassed themselves as an organization signing him," Theismann said.






    Joe Theisman talking about someone else disgracing the NFL is so far beyond complete and utter hilarity :banghead:

    Theismann hasn't done anything morally disgraceful. He is just as you said, a tool.

    It isn't Ricky Williams or any professional athlete's responsibility to be a role model to kids. It is the parental responsibility to teach the correct morals.

    As for his commentary, well, let's just say he is a hypocritical crumb, because I don't recall him ever calling teammate/coke fiend Dexter Manley a "disgrace to the game" and questioning his class or lack thereof.

    His commentary in and of itself is disgraceful. I have muted Cowboy games on ESPN before because of him.

    Annoying, ignorant and reeking of homerism? Absolutely.

    Disgraceful? Not so much.

    Whenever I hear that statement, to me that's usually just some holier than thou dip trying to sound important and assert some morally superior high ground. How much of a "role model" has Joe Theismann been?

    Now if Mother Theresa came out and said it? Yes, I would consider that person an expert on how to be a role model.

    But Joe Theismann? The posterchild for the narcissistic airhead athlete?

    If I was not an NFL fan and tuned in for the first time only to hear Theisman go on about how Joe Gibbs is Jesus Christ reincarnate, I would never watch another game as long as I lived.

    He doesnt even try to hide his idiocy.

    CFL | Williams not worried about Theismann's comments
    Tue, 30 May 2006 13:11:02 -0700

    Jeff Darlington, of the Palm Beach Post, reports Toronto Argonauts RB Ricky Williams isn't worried about Joe Theismann's latest harsh assessment of him. After all, Williams said Tuesday, May 30, he knows an apology will be forthcoming. After practice today, Williams noted that Theismann has often been critical of him in the past, consistently bashing anyone who is willing to associate with the controversial star.

    However, Theismann reverses course when he sees Williams in person, the player said. "Every time he says something, here's what happens: He says a remark about me that's offensive, then when he has to (broadcast) one of our (Dolphins) games, he comes in and apologizes and says, 'I'm sorry,'" Williams said. Williams indicated that he would accept an apology from Theismann.

    Bravo, Ricky.

    Bravo.

    I always thought Theismann was a coward. This confirms it.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Theismann is such a ****** it is not even funny. If he keeps running his mouth the way he does about other players though, he will end up with two bad legs.

    I don't know about this statement. I think he protects a good bit of his working leg by keeping his foot firmly planted in his mouth.
