Normally I stay away from this kind of stuff but it is Mario and we made the home page of ESPN because of it.

Personally, I just think the media is making it bigger than it needs to be. Who the hell buys a $785,000+ ring? That is absolutely ridiculous.

I just hope it won't do anything to affect his play.

Heard about this a couple days ago. I don't think it'll be a big deal. They'll figure out who gets the ring, and that'll be it. Might take a judge and lawyers, but I don't see it taking too long.

On one hand, he's dumb for buying a ring that expensive. On the other hand, he had just signed a $100M contract...

If she wasn't for the money, than give the ring back.. The fact the lawyer released those private text messages to the media is savaged.

So many things wrong with this situation, but I hope it gets resolved soon

I don't think this is a big deal. Likely won't even be remembered by the start of TC.

This, it's a normal dispute. In every state sans Texas (maybe a few others) the engagement ring is the property of the one who purchased it (in this case Williams) until they are officially married. Since his fiance was obviously just a gold digger (though integral in getting him to come here so, thanks gold diggers! Laughing ) I doubt this amounts to anything other than the judge ordering her to give the dang ring back.

The lawsuit was filed in Texas.

When I was about to propose to my wife, my boss said that in most states, if you don't give the ring to the person on a special occasion (IE birthday, anniversary, holiday), then you can get your ring back because it is your property, and thus can't be considered a "gift" when you give it to the person. I'm not sure if this is true, but it seemed to make sense. That's why I picked a random day. LOL

I picked a random day and didn't get the ring back (not that I intended it to not work out), but then again I got married before we broke up.

Sad

Anyway, hopefully Williams can maintain focus through everything, especially with new coaches and a new system. I also hope the Bills will take the time to evaluate his state of mind, which could be in doubt based on some of the things I've read.
