Run Ricky Run

Quote:
Ricky Williams does not conform to America’s definition of the modern athlete. In 2004, with rumors of another positive marijuana test looming, the Miami Dolphins running back traded adulation and a mansion in South Florida for anonymity and a $7 a night tent in Australia. His decision created a media frenzy that dismantled his reputation and branded him as America's Pothead. But while most in the media thought Williams was ruining his life by leaving football, Ricky thought he was saving it. Through personal footage recorded with Williams during his time away from football and beyond, filmmaker Sean Pamphilon takes a fresh look at a player who had become a media punching bag and has since redeemed himself as a father and a teammate.
cant wait to see this...

as for the pot, he's pretty f'n weird.

But he was always a beast at UT.

He is a very complex personality, I always enjoyed him as a player even though I did not agree with his actions concering the marijuana use and his abandoning the team.

He seems to have put all that behind him, and has become a great teammate and a genuinley good person.

I look forward to watching this.

I just got done watching this. It was a pretty good documentary. It is crazy how much he lost stats wise and in the bank in those 6 years. It is even more crazy that he is just as good IMO. And, I don't think he cares that he lost all that money or success.

The interesting part of the whole thing was how intellegent Ricky can be, and then he comes out of left field with some weird bs. He has something psychological that I don't think this documentary was allowed to talk about. Definitely some kind of social disorder. He almost seems like a genious that can't get out of his own way.

They did talk about him having social disorder. His Dr. or shrink was even on there talking about it. Then they talked about him going to that place in Boston. Now, they didn't go into all the details of social disorder, but they did say he had it and not bi-polar dissease
