    you'd never know it by the coverage, but a white tailback led the other team to victory. Josh Ranek scored the game's opening touchdown as the starter for the Hamilton Tiger-cats.

    anybody else remember him? despite being an outstanding back in college, and one of the elite runners in the CFL, he only lasted about two days in an NFL training camp. weird, huh?

    Yah, I remember him. We have an old thread titled with his name that you could look up. The comparison between the direction his career went compared to Lamar Gordon's career is remarkable. They played at the same time in the same conference in college (NDSU, SDSU). Ranek compiled more yards (breaking the all-time D-II career record), had a higher Yards per carry, and timed faster in the 40. Gordon, on the other hand, was drafted and made an NFL team because of his "speed". Since then Gordon has been given every opportunity with several teams now to be a starting RB. In contrast, Ranek had a try out with the Cowboys and was cut because he was "too slow". [​IMG] Edited by: Kaptain Poop

    What will people say if one of the best running backs in the NFL was a complete flop in CFL? How could this be explained? Ricky Williams is supposed to be SOOOO much better than guys like Josh Ranek and Jesse Lumsden.

    I predict that Ricky Williams will indeed be a complete flop in the CFL and it will cost him as NFL teams lose interest. Or, he will be a flop and the NFL genuises will blame it on "poor playing shape" or something of the like; then they will give him a Maurice Clarett-like opportunity to make another team.

    The rumor in Texas has always been that Ricky Williams is gay. Maybe he smokes that stuff to cope.

    I don't see how the field plays a factor. For a running back, you still have to run FORWARD... how much different can it be? He's just not that good, or his offensive line isn't good...

    I have heard of the pole smoker rumours too. But he supposedly has "bastard" children too. Maybe his percieved gayness was his just plain oddity....... [​IMG]

    Maybe he is such a "free spirit" he doesn't mind swinging both ways.

    Michael Strahan's wife is claiming he went homo:


    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5717196
    <DIV =firstP>If Jean Strahan, the estranged wife of New York Giants star Michael Strahan, isn't careful, she's going to get flagged for unnecessary roughness.





    According to a report in the New York Post, Jean Strahan said her husband engaged in an "alternative lifestyle" with his friend, television doctor Ian Smith, after the couple split in March 2005.


    Jean Strahan made the allegations as she opened up to reporters outside the Essex County Family Court on Tuesday after her husband completed a second day on the witness stand in their divorce proceeding.


    "Michael moved in with Ian in his one-bedroom apartment for the next year," Jean Strahan said. "You could say an alternative lifestyle sprouted."


    Asked to elaborate, she was prevented from saying any more by her lawyer.


    Michael Strahan's lawyer, Robert Penza, called the remarks "outrageous."


    "This allegation has been raised in the past by Jean," Penza added. "She's been spreading rumors throughout this entire litigation process."


    The Giants defensive end, who is a seven-time Pro Bowl performer and holds the NFL's single-season record for sacks, could not be reached for comment, but Smith strongly denied the allegation.


    "This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard," Smith told the Post.


    "Yes, Michael Strahan is one of my best friends, and in a time of need, when he was kicked out of his home and had no place to go, I did what any good friend would do and offered him my couch.


    "At the same time, I was planning my wedding to a woman I had been dating for over 14 years, and we are happily married.


    "Michael Strahan is very heterosexual, and I am very heterosexual."


    Inside the courtroom Tuesday, Michael Strahan chuckled when one of the love letters he was shown looked like it was addressed "Dear John" instead of "Dear Jean."


    "I've been accused of that before," he said jokingly, according to the Newark Star Ledger.


    Jean Strahan's allegations are not the first vicious shots in what has become an extremely contentious case.


    According to the Star Ledger, she also teared up in court after Michael testified he did not remember her birthday or a heartfelt Father's Day card she gave him.


    "I was devastated," Jean Strahan said after the hearing. "He denied remembering a really important card. He couldn't remember my birthday. He basically denied that we ever existed."


    During other testimony, the couple also exchanged dueling tales of wild spending ways. According to the New York Daily News, Michael Strahan said Jean spoiled their toddler twin girls, recently spending nearly $100,000 on them - including $27,000 for clothes alone.


    But Jean responded, saying the Giants star spent nearly $200,000 on two luxury cars, lavished money on a mistress and kept a secret ledger detailing the married couple's sex romps before the twin daughters were born.

    8 carries for a whopping 14 yards last night. [​IMG]
    Based on Ricky's results so far the NFL should start to realize that their overhyped players aren't that good - just as we here at caste football have all suspected.

    Ricky broke his left wrist or arm last night in the first half against Saskatchewan. He had 17 yards on 4 carries to that point. He will out 4-6 weeks. John Avery or Sean Bennett will be activated to alternate with Canadian RB Jeff Johnson in the meantime.
