T&R’s Dumbest Athlete Search Round 1: Rocker vs Williams
BOSTON (CBS) – 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher and Rich continue their search for “The Dumbest Athlete” with #2 seed John Rocker and #3 seed Ricky Williams.
Rocker got in a lot of trouble for an interview he did with SI while playing for the Atlanta Braves. During the interview he had this to say about New York, “The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. I’m not a very big fan of foreigners.” Is he so stupid that he thought that quote wouldn’t find it’s way in there? Well he was surprised when the article came out. Along those same lines he decided to make some t-shirts for his campaign called ‘The Speak English Campaign’.
Then there’s Ricky Williams who violated the NFL drug policy once in 2003 and was rumored to have failed another before announcing his retirement in 2004. He studied Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of holistic medicine, at the California College of Ayurveda during the 2004 season. He returned to the NFL for the 2006 season, but was suspended for the entire season when he violated the NFL drug policy for the fourth time.
