Travel show could lure Williams away from NFL

One of the stories everyone will follow in 2010 is whether running back Ricky Williams will retire after the season (as he has said he might) or will continue playing beyond this season (as he has said he might).

Well, in correcting a news story on Thursday, Williams may have given a glimpse of which way he's leaning long-term.

SportsBusinessDaily.com reported Williams is in preliminary talks to host a "reality" show for 2011. Turns out the report and the ensuing ones that simply parroted the information were wrong, according to Williams.

"I am NOT doing a reality TV show," Williams said on his twitter feed. "I am beginning discussions [for] a potential travel show."

So what does this have to do with the decision to play beyond 2010 or not?

As Williams added with another tweet, the travel show work would begin in February of 2011 after the NFL season is over.

And that means if the show gets off the ground and is a success, Williams would find himself doing something he once decided he loved more than football. Williams would essentially be doing what he did in the fall of 2004 when he retired from football and traveled around the world.

Except this time Williams would be getting paid.

The gig wouldn't preclude him from returning to his NFL work in 2011 if he wanted, but it is possible it would be another reason tugging at Williams to stay away. He would no doubt be making good money, exploring the world, and not getting trucked by 300-pound defensive linemen.

That lure could play a role in whether Williams wants to make a return to the field at age 34. Even the discussion of doing the show might be a foreshadowing that Williams is already planning other activities not football for 2011.

Or not. One never knows with Mr. Williams.

Cuban but why?? What did you? payaseria?

What up Cuban? Long time no talk. Did you ever figure out the cast for West Side Story?

Darryl, cuban figured out the cast of the SS.
cast of characters LOL

Empanada, Honestly I dont know why, I was just telling tim that my post on here wed. nite was not meant towards him, and he's a good blogger and dont be a Puppet to our friend, and I tried to post something football related and it wouldn't let me...

LOL Darryl, I forgot that, Wasnt Marc/marcia goona play Maria?????

Cuban, you should be banned from life!

Odinseye, I have never laughed harder on this blog when I read some of your comments about Bret Michaels. You are a legend! Cuban Menace, glad to have you back and giving your take on things. The Phins defense will be better from Mike Nolans schemes. I think we will be fine (Wanny). The offense will be greatly improved, and with Patrick Cobbs back making those 70 screen pass plays. I am stoked for the season, and beyond! As always RUN RICKY RUN!

Marc your hate should be toward NJ. He is worse than cuban

Emp, Feel Bad for Marc/Marcia, She/He cant help it, to many Hormones interacting with each other, Hopefully his sex change operation well go good and he can pick out a new dress... Right Marc/Marcia, You've said numerous times you've worn womens clothing, Or i'am I making this up??????????????

Jersey's alright in my book. The menace however, is not...

Fish boy, You are correct my friend name Dave(No nut sack)Wannstadt as the man that single handily brought a once proud Franchise to it's knees, But the Mighty Phins are on a Up swing.....Speaking about Knees, "Hot Ashley will be home soon,Let me get her Knee pads out.....

Marc, That Figures,NJ is the same guy that Insults you more then I do, well go join Your boy over at the Sun Sentinal, I hear there's a opening for another Obnoxious buffoon....

I see the dolphins just signed marques douglas from the jets

Breaking news frm J.D. on Armando's blog. WTF?

Marc/Marcia, Tell us what kind of dress you'll be wearing tonite??? Something short, or well you be wearing a Evening dress, And dont forget to tell us what kind of shoes, Maybe a 4 inch heel , Just wondering...... LMAO

and JD is right!

Better shake the rust off Armando. This tardiness will not be tolerated next

week

Kris, "WEAK".....

a little old, but he can tackle.

Marc, Nj does insult you WAY more. This shows you are not smart enough to notice.

Your new name here will ne la muneca.

Thanks Cuban.

will be la muneca

LMAO @ Empanada, Calling Marc/Marcia A gay Puerto Rican is about right...lol...lol...(Not that there's anything wrong with that)..

site is slow...peace

Signing Douglas quickly was a smart move on a few levels. One the Jets had a mild interest in bringing him back. Two he is familiar with Nolan's scheme. Three, the loss of Merling gave Odrick's camp a little more leverage in contract negotiations. Good move all around.

cuban it is kinda weird that he has this strong dislike towards you. Kinda like Home has for NJ. Let us hope you dont have a poster of la muneca on your wall.

Some drama in here......

Emp, I know, It's Freaky, The guy just lashes out at me for no reason...........Oh never mind, Just rememberd my post to Darrly, Well marc/Marcia is still a stalker/Freak....

ANY ONE WHO WENT TO THE SS BOARD AK NJ PHIN BLOG SHOULD GET 60 LASHES AND EAT A PORK MEAT SUB .

No reason? Really Menace? I'm sure you recall all the reasons you low life. That's the last time I address you this season...Good night

CM,

Hope ya tazed a few Jet fans since we last communicated.

GUYS, ANY ONE WATCHES MAD MEN ?

Trying to PO, But the more I look at my posts at some of the bloggers here the more I see a reflection in the mirror,And that reflection is NJ phin fan. What I'am trying to say is I bash people on here like NJ does on the sun Sentinel... I dont like the image in the mirror..... Your thoughts on my Epiphany?

CUBAN TRYING TO SPEAK LIKE HE HAS A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA .

The word evolution comes to mind.

No Tazing Po, Been on the 8 to 4am shift, AKA DUI, no need to taser a drunk guy, there pretty starled when lights are in there rear vue mirror, not only that the spotlight on them is a stuner too......

Aloco, I do, And some Community collage too.... Why else would I be working a city job?And not a Banker/Wall street type job as yourself??

So be smart and forward thinking and offer a 4th rounder for Marshawn Lynch now. The guy is an idiot but he can run.

LMAO@cuban, epiphany???

NJ is way worse than you cuban. NJ is a very tricky slimy individual.

He's all Juiced up on Steroids, He cant help it, I can.......

Wait a second...


1) I think Phin Fan somehow convinced himself that Menace was secretly Troll-bashing him. Once he believed it...he became hostile.


2) I might very well might be wrong....but most people with 'Law Enforcement' backgrounds don't usually hide behind multiple names to bash someone. If they've got something to say, they usually just say it.

3) As you know,
Phin Fan and Home both got banned for Feuding.
NJ forgot that..... "You should never wrestle with a Pig...You'll only get dirty and THE PIG LIKES IT.


3) It is Probable that 'Home' engaged in 98% of all Troll-bashing on BOTH Boards. Home is ELITE in this category. No one even comes close.
We've all been lucky these past few days -- BUT CHANCES ARE
THAT HE WILL RETURN!


4) Having said all that....
I myself got banned a month ago (for 48 hours) at the Sentinel for using multiple names. (But I changed aliases only because I didn't want Home to Zombie-post with my handel.) Its a shame that I had to do that. I wish that the small group of people who are in need of so much attention would stop gracing us with their presence.
