I'd like to meet the brain donor who came up with this brilliant idea.
The goofy bastards over at SAFER (Safer Alternative for Enjoyable Recreation), Denver's pro-doobie group, think it would be a good idea for the Broncos to sign habitual ganja-toker and overall degenerate ass-clown Ricky Williams should he be reinstated by the league. They're leasing a billboard that will go up today (directly across I-25 from New Mile High by the way) urging Ricky and his sticky-icky to come to Denver, "where people support your safer choice."
Brilliant! Let's ignore the football aspect of it. Denver will want no part of Ricky. I personally don't get how this guy gets another NFL job, but whatever. Instead, we'll focus on how stupid this move is by SAFER.
Don't get me wrong, I support their message and believe that marijuana is safer for you than booze. They did such a good job that the dank is now legal here in Denver (not really), but how does this help your cause? Why waste what I'm sure are limited resources to put up a billboard advocating Ricky Williams coming to town? It's brainless. Do you really want people to associate SAFER with Ricky Williams? No one in Denver with any credibility supports Williams, regardless of whether he sparks up or not. I can't imagine anyone wanting this guy on their squad. He quit on the Dolphins in training camp, took a year off, came back, got suspended and played in Canada against the Dolphins' wishes. This guy is bad news...again regardless of whether he rips bingers or not.
Mason Tvert, take your money and put up one of the generic SAFER billboards I see around town. Ricky Williams shouldn't be the face of your cause. He shouldn't be the face of any cause, unless that cause is "Support our Funyuns and 7-11 Chimichangas" You probably shouldn't mess around with what you clearly don't understand.
In other news: It's about goddamn time. I don't see how this is a "surprising" move.
