Just think, judging by some of the comments I've seen around over the years, a lot of people probably think he had escaped a cult when he got away from DD/Lat64... but apparently he had just found a new one...

I wear a little rifle pendant necklace to remind me of the sacrifice made by Jack Kennedy, but I still take my *&%# antibiotics.

As the game continues to professionalize (if that’s actually what is occurring), the disc sponsors like Innova should probably play a bigger role in articulating expectations regarding health care and treatment for players they sponsor, and especially the big contract players. I’m no expert in contracts and such, but I can’t imagine Innova being happy about him being sidelined, especially if (and it is an if) he is not seeking sound advice that will lead to recovery.

Great point by Orioles_Lefty on Innova's stake in this matter. We spectators may want what's best for Ricky, but he doesn't owe us anything. But Innova actually does have a vested interest in his health and, y'know, survival.

They should send Drew Gibson to put Ricky in a headlock and shove some antibiotics into his mouth, for goodness sake!

Just attach them to a soft AVR and have Conrad throw it in from 200'

not one person here has tried forcing pills down Ricky's throat

so what the hell are you talking about?


people are making these comments because it's hard to watch someone throw their life away because of stupid ideological positions. religion ought to be ridiculed when it results in undue suffering. Ricky is making extremely, demonstrably poor decisions in this situation. he has absolutely earned the negative feedback.

Everyone is armchair quarterbacking here. What do we actually know, from Ricky himself, as of today. I don't have FB, IG, or any of that crap, or I'd look this up myself.

What do we know?
Jesus would have survived the crucifixion, but he kept taking antibiotics for bronchitis.

no, we're not

it's no great mystery (pun intended): Ricky has Lyme and is not treating it with antibiotics. you don't need to have social media, most of his posts have been reposted in this thread. it's clear that he chose not to use antibiotics from his own and Simon's statements.
