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.

For what it's worth. Madden has us rated 79, 3rd in the AFC East, and 17th overall, behind NE, 84, AND NY Jets, 89 (4th overall!)

Top 3 rated players:

Long-96
Marshall-96
Polite-91

He'd Be the the security guard that rape Marselis..........

"just because you say you are correct all the time, in fits of rage and anger, insult people all the time, does not mean you are on steroids"

cuban BINGO that was my pick also. Tim would be the pawn shop owner. Always sitting in the background watching....

He'd Be Zed, "Zeds dead baby,Jump on the Chopper No Baby it's not a motorcycle, it's a chopper"

I love this line "There is no more me and you"

LOL at ZAMPADA, Gotta go my friend, "Hot Ashley" Getting off work in 30 minutes, Talk to you tommarrow..............

Sorry EMPANADA, Mispelled your name cause of the laughter......

Take care cuban. I will be around if you know what I mean

What about this Bonnie situation??

I thought you were leaving dude. How are things at the SS?

NEXT.....ENTER THE DRAGON....NICE MOVIE

"You have offended my family, and you offended the Shaolin Temple"

Aloco guess the movie.

Here you have 2 of the biggest losers that you can find in the cuban menace and empanada. 2 guys talking about a movies and poking fun at people who aren't even here to defend themselves , all on a friday night. So sad and pathetic ! Get a life and go get laid . I know that's difficult for 2 losers like you 2 guys but at least go out and try !

enter the dragon Empanada

LMAO @ carlo, your post made me laugh, hard too. Where did i mention someone who could not defend themselves? I dont get you. If cuban and I are losers here, you must be too. Because you were here all along. LOL

carlo ponti is dead .he was sophia loren's husband .

Aloco that was too easy. Aloco who is your second favorite character in the movie Enter the Dragon. Not Bruce.

Aloco be quick. "The art of fighting with no fighting"

mr han

Bolo is my second pick.

Aloco,

I don't have to tell you that you have great taste in the Flicks dept.....but........YOU DA MAN!

Pacino's one of my all time favorites and so is Dog Day Afternoon.

PS: Tell Momma Maria I said: Whazzup!?!?

Empanada , i happened to be out enjoying dinner and some adult beverage with friends. i came on here to find out about some dolphis news and what do i see 2 clowns like you and the cuban menace talking about pulp fiction and poking fun at people who aren't even on here to defend themselves all night , all night. You and your boyfriend happened to be 2 of the biggest losers on the planet earth. Like i said go out and get a life . I know it's difficult for 2 guys who have no social life to speak of but at least make an attempt , instead of wasting your life away on a blog . Have a good night , loser !!

I think there might be something to that social life thing.

I just got home from a night out dancing with my newest Favorite Hottie. This Girl can "cut a rug", man. I'm sure my gumpy a_s was embarrassing the H_LL out of her. Still, I had a blast anyways.

Time to take some of Aloco's advice. Her and I getting ready to curl up with some Rum and a good movie.

Life is Good! Come on Training Camp!!!!

PS: Darryl D,

Glad to hear you survived your encounter with the Grizzly.

We don't have any Grizzles up here in the Hiawatha Forest, but I've had a couple of encounters with some black bears. It ain't no joke Bro!

Good Night All :)

Carlo I tried to be civil. I hope you dont wake up in the morning. One less scum bag in the World is fine by me.

So Od when are you coming by to give me that blow job you promised?

Go Dolphins

Number 1 movie of all time is with out a doubt Steel Magnolias

carlo ponti = home

The Dolphins will soon be in serious RB problems, and I've been saying this for awhile. Ricky is about 65 years old and Ronnie can't get through a complete season to save his life.

So....speed receiver, tight end, outside linebacker, safety and RB. Otherwise, we are just fine.

TH

its annoying how everyone says they noticed towards the end of last season he didnt have the motor he once had but ricky was still finishing the season with 100 yard games so wtf are you talking about. Looks like the online was wearing down and the rest of the team was unjury plagued, and with no receiver that where a threat last year obviously defenses would stack the box, i wanna see any running back do great with 9 in the box. He was still getting 100 yards and finished with 1000. The fumbles came in because of dumb mistakes and carelessness he had that all throught his career hell have it fixed by this year. plus he has small hands so its hard to secure the ball.

Glad to see everyone is back....almost.

I hope I can run like Ricky when I'm 65 years old.Run beerndrums run.

Go for it Ricky! I can't wait to catch show.

where is everybody at?

He can do whatever he wants to do to five poudsify his money supply

cowkilla where di you get that name from? hillbilly name. LOL

@Tom Hartman
Miami is fine at RB. Kory Sheets has big-time speed and playmaking abilities. As long as they keep the o-line intact, it won't matter who's playing RB.

Hi boys and girls. Six hours yesterday spent tailing about NJPhinfan on SS and then another 3 talking about Cuban Menace and movies. This blog needs an update badly, like let's say talking about football. Fins just signed a 33 year old ex-Jet, any thoughts on that or we gonna discuss NJ all day???

Bobbyd,

Douglas is a good signing. I think that once TC starts, the blog will return to normal

there's no thing going on football wise ,LOOK AT WHAT ARMANDO WROTE ABOUT RICKY GOING TO MAKE A TV SHOW .

The Douglas story would beat a story about guessing Ricky's future.

The Douglas story?

Here's the Douglas story and why Armando hasn't wrote about it:

We basically swapped Douglas for Taylor.
It's simply much too soon for Mando and his Taylor made Man Crush.

Since Taylor left Mando has managed to aggravate everyone inside the organization and felt it neccessary to take two extended "vacations"(nervous breakdowns) and even shut down the blog!

You heard it here first.

bobby how was your dinner last night?

In all fairness, a few posters at the SS cut on this blog and its posters everyday.

It's a tit for tat BLOG WAR!!!!

When the bell rings I think we should catch those kids from the SS on the playground and take their lunch money!

ODIN YOU RIGHT BUT WHAT SIDE WOULD BOBBY BE ON???? SS OR HERALD.

HO ARE YOU ODIN?
