Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

The best rule I can offer to anyone who wants to marry their significant other is this: Know for a fact that when you propose, they'll say yes.

Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams would probably agree with that rule and, since he's currently suing a former girlfriend, would also probably add: "Don't mail the engagement ring when you do propose."

See, according to the Odessa American, Williams is currently suing former 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels in order to get a $76,000 engagement ring he sent to her. In the mail.

"I'm not going to talk about it," Williams told ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins on Wednesday. "It's a non-issue."
Cowboys Offseason

Well, actually it might be an issue -- Daniels' father Michael claims Williams didn't want the ring back, even after Daniels decided she didn't want to marry him. "He said to her, 'I'm not like a lot of people, I don't want the ring back. You'll eventually come back to me,' and she didn't," Michael Daniels said, per the OA.

The spiciest part about all this, though, is that apparently Texas law states that if the donor of the ring (perhaps you prefer "the engager"?) is at fault for terminating an engagement, the ring doesn't have to be returned.

In this case, Daniels' decision to terminate the relationship would actually require her to return the ring to Williams.

Of course, that still doesn't mean that, going forward, Williams should ignore my rule about marriage proposals.

Roy Williams suing girlfriend for engagement ring

So for most of us, $76k is significant money. To Roy Williams, a day's work. To most of us, asking our special gal to marry us takes place in person. To Roy Williams, trust in the Post Office? Whoa - I wonder what Texas law says if the Post Office does not return the ring?

By Roy Williams is cheap. Who doesn't remember Koby's sin offering to his then wife with a ring that reportedly cost $5M? Roy you just don't get it. Our women friends want to be considered special. They want us to demonstrate total commitment. They want to know we will make the our priority in life. Many might see the mail offering of a $76k ring as pedestrian. Like opening a Cracker Jacks box and getting a plastic ring. Asking - is this all he thinks of me? Add the arrogance of saying "you'll eventually will come back to me" and we see that Roy's personal life of dropped passes mirrors his NFL life of dropped passes.

What is amusing, in this day of no NFL stories, is that Roy chose to publicize his failures. What? File a lawsuit and hope nobody notices? Demand a trinket back because the law might be on your side? Roy, Roy, Roy. When are you going to wise up. Filing a lawsuit takes a minimum of $50k in attorney fees. Win the suit and then try to collect and that may cost another $25k. So Roy, you have committed $75k to get back a ring that cost $76K. Even worse, when you try to sell that ring you will be shocked, yes shocked I tell you. The ring is only worth about 40% of what you paid for it. Unless, of course, you are thinking of another comely young lady to mail it to. You go Roy.

I love how NFL players just throw money around like it's nothing. I know he'll get his ring back, but the fact he spends 76k on a ring and mails it to a women he doesn't even know wants to marry him is pretty stupid.
