Ricky was/is suffering from a mental disorder. And he didn't just quit football because of weed. He quit football to find himself. Lived in a tent in Australia for a long period of time. Meditated, and became a yoga instructor (or something along that line of work)
I don't like the bad rep Ricky gets because of failed drug tests. I think Ricky was born to do other things as well as football. Frank Alexander probably just smoked some weed with buddies.
people will shrug this stuff off as crazy but it is truth. it is too bad humans in general suck. including myself. and we are so far gone as a society none of these things are reasonable or applicable anymore.
