The Ricky Williams Rule

Back Story: It’s not a mistake we’re putting the other Ricky Williams faux pas on this list. In 2006, Ricky Williams’ off the field choices were less than popular. His choice to repeatedly hang with Mary Jane resulted in a suspension for the entire season. Williams would be permitted by the Miami Dolphins to play in the CFL, despite being suspended for the year.

The Rule: Simply put, when you’re suspended from the NFL, you can’t flee to Canada to play.
