I was waiting at the barbershop last night and had the misfortune of sitting through at least half of a 90 minute (!) ESPN NFL Draft preview program. In addition to the usual attempts at mystifying a glorified slave auction, there was much hand-wringing over last night’s announcement that 420-friendly Dolphins RB Ricky Williams’ suspension for the whole of 2006 had been upheld.

One by one, beefy, no-necked white dudes skilled at talking with their hands waxed poetic about Ricky as a bad teammate and all the unspeakable things he had done to the Miami franchise.

I can only presume that a future installment of the same program will have a slightly different take on Brett Favre’s decision to play for the Packers next season. Favre being the ultimate gamer and all, not at all the short of person who could be accused of putting his own interests in front of those of the team, holding a club hostage, etc.
