Crowder tries to retract claim that Ricky smoked weed before games


On Wednesday, former Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder said during his WQAM radio show that former Dolphins running back Ricky Williams routinely smoked marijuana the night before games. And, like so many who don’t seem to realize the things said on radio no longer disappear into the ether like wisps of weed smoke, Crowder has now tried to put the leaves back into the blunt.

Said Crowder on his Twitter page, via the Miami Herald: “@ProFootballTalk is trollin my radio show. Its funny. I was a SR in HS when Rick ran for 200. How would i know what he did b4 the game?

OK, so why did Crowder say it if he really doesn’t know it? Is it impossible to think that Ricky, you know, admitted it to Crowder during a broader discussion regarding Ricky’s use of marijuana?

Or maybe Crowder just made it all up.

Either way, we didn’t “troll” Crowder. His radio station did.

We only found out about Crowder’s comments because we received the clip with this email from WQAM: “Former Miami Dolphin linebacker Channing Crowder admitted on his show today that Ricky Williams would smoke before games, including the huge game he had in Buffalo where he rushed for over 200+ Yards. Give it a listen and please just credit the ‘CHANNING CROWDER AND BRANDON GUZIO SHOW’ on 560 WQAM in Miami.”

So while we can be blamed for plenty of things, Channing Crowder’s comments became a story on PFT only because the radio station that pays Channing Crowder to say controversial things made it one.
