Roy Williams wants to get back the ring he mailed to girlfriend
Yahoo ^ | 07/06/11 | Chris Chase

Posted on 07/06/2011 11:17:33 AM PDT by DFG

Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams is going to court to get back the $76,000 engagement ring he gave to a former beauty pageant winner.

In February, Williams proposed to his girlfriend, Brooke Daniels. When she turned him down, Daniels didn't return the ring. According to Williams' affidavit that was filed in a Texas court last week, he asked for the ring back but was told by Daniels that she had lost it. An insurance investigation later revealed that Daniels' father was in possession of the ring.

Roy Williams recorded his marriage proposal and mailed the engagement ring. How romantic! I can't figure out why Ms Daniels said no.

I guess she is worth a $76K ring.

I guy doesn’t know when he’s well off! He dodged a bullet and he would do better to write the ring off and be glad she didn’t put it through his nose.

Anyone know is she filed an insurance claim on the “lost” ring? Or if he did and she said it was lost to the insurance company?

If either of those happened, she’s got bigger problems than Williams wanting the ring back...

Turn down the proposal, but keep the ring. Real classy!

Even if Mr. Williams never gets the ring back, I think he’s getting off cheap for $76K. A woman who would keep the ring would have almost certainly cost him many times that in money, headaches and heartaches, if she had accepted the proposal and become his wife.

If he tossed the ring into a random crowd of women, there is probably about a 99.99% chance someone better would catch it.

He’ll be about as effective at getting the ring back as he was trying to cover receivers in the NFL.

That's because you're not mailing her tens of thousands of dollars of jewelry every few weeks.

Roy could have paid for a lot of high class women without the strings with $76K. He just got a lesson from the school of life. Captain No Marriage.com.

Not me. I bet that she is colder than the rock in the ring she’s keeping and could cut you easier and deeper than any diamond!

LOL! Actually, he will get the ring back. It was given in contemplation of marriage, which did not occur. She broke the agreement. She loses.

Very, very, very, high priced whore. Would this attractive white woman really marry this guy,if instead of a $76,000 ring he’d have given her a $7.60 ring? I, of course, know the answer but in a PC world you dare not speak it. I’d be curious to know the percentage of poor poverty stricken black males that have model quality white girlfriends vs the number of famous/rich black males that have beautiful white girlfriends. Truth be told we all know it’s the money, and any woman who’d engage in a sexual relationship with someone she’d normally not, except for the money, is by definition a whore.

Roy Williams IS a receiver...former TX Longhorn, IIRC.

Doesn't strike me as very romantic to mail an engagement ring...was that his whole proposal? Was there a note enclosed: "I like you...do you like me? Circle YES NO"

This is the other Roy Williams -- the washed up wide receiver.

That he is on the downside of his career is probably why she turned him down.

She actually did try to give back the ring but Williams, characteristically, dropped it. << rimshot >>

She didn’t want marriage. She only wanted him for the sex.

How many poverty stricken males of any color have model quality girlfriends of any color? Women look for men who can provide, just as men look for attractive women. Basic human nature isn't usually on display as blatantly as it is in this case, but it's always there.

Agreed. Did she think the ring was a gift unrelated to the proposal? Her keeping the ring tells me that she is a gold digger. She did Roy a big favor by turning down his proposal.

I have 20-15 in my right eye, 20-20 in my left. No, I do not care for women that are built like that. too tomboyish for my tastes.

I need a marylin monroe/jane russel/scarlet johansen/christina hendricks/monica bellucci/catherine zeta jones/sophia loren kinda bodacious body with buns and ta-tas to get my blood pumping.

That girl that wont return the ring is just plain ugly from the neck down. I also don’t like sun tans and sun faded hair.
