My boyfriend and I own a small marketing company and we worked the town of Great Falls, MT for 6 months. The state of Montana is very beautiful. But a lot of the small towns are drug infested. Great Falls is known for its pill poppers. Its sad to see these small towns go down hill.

Tt's tough to be sympathetic toward someone who falls ass backward into a pile of cash for playing a game and still can't make it in life.

What goes around comes around. He took the Chargers 11 million dollars and never really worked for it.
All he wanted to do was play golf and loaf. Dont know how he "blew" thru that much money but it looks like he did. Good riddence.

You have your facts wrong, Ryan Leaf was No. 1 draft pick of '98, Peyton Manning was No. 2, which is why Eli Manning would not go to the Chargers.

I guess it was only a matter of time someone posted a pic of Leaf in a Cowboys uniform as if it was Dallas that drafted the idiot! Just shocked it wasn't ESPN that did it first. We all know how they "love" the Cowboys.
