A real pro: Leaf salutes family & Coug Nation

TWO WELL-KNOWN quarterbacks were in the news this week, one for offenses related to his addiction to prescription painkillers, one for a claim of sexual assault. One of these guys came to court in a classy suit and tie, his hair cut and his face clean-shaven. The other, with straggly hair and a 5-o-clock shadow, looked like he just came from a round of beers after a day at the golf course.

One came across heartfelt and mature in sharing his thoughts with reporters. The other looked like a robot reading a statement he didn't really believe and then he marched off to a back room.

One came across as a mature young man in his 30s, the other as a lug-head in his late-20s.

One of these guys wears a Super Bowl ring and is the leader of a perennial NFL contender. The other wears a Rose Bowl ring, but is more known around the nation for being a celebrated "bust" with the San Diego Chargers.

Clearly, there's no confusing Ben Roethlisberger and Ryan Leaf.

And I'll tell you right now that it's better to be Mr. Leaf.




The former Cougar All-American was in Amarillo, Texas, this morning, where a judge put him on probation and fined him $20,000 for various offenses related to addiction to prescription painkillers when he was the quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M.

Leaf appeared in court in a beautiful gray suit, crisp blue shirt and silk tie. He was clean cut, professional, likeable, emotional. Unlike Roethlisberger, he looked like a guy who knows where he's going.

And based on the hard work he's done to free himself from painkillers, he does know where he's going. And based on his apology to the folks at West Texas A&M and his salute to family and the Cougar Nation, he knows he wouldn't be where he is today – in a very good place – without the help of a lot of caring people.

Leaf's work to right his own ship is so complete, in fact, that the judge in Amarillo asked him to stay there a few more days to speak on Friday to a group of at-risk youngsters the judge mentors.

When asked a question this morning that had nothing to do with his court appearance – his ill-fated NFL career – Leaf took it in perfect stride.

It used to bother him a lot, he said. "It hurt me to the core that I wasn't successful at that time. I don't think people understand how much it hurt for me to walk away from it." But now, he said, he's closer to 40 than 20, so there's real perspective on what's important in life. All his energies are focused on doing the most with the present and planning for the future.

That sounds to me like a guy who is squared away.

The full text of his prepared remarks that preceded the questions-and-answers with reporters illustrated that fact in spades. Rather than summarize them, I'll let Ryan and his words speak for themselves. Here's the complete text of what he said:

"To start, I want to publicly apologize to Coach Carthel and the entire staff and team at West Texas A&M. I've apologized personally, but I would like to do so publicly as well because as anyone involved in team sports knows, the missteps of one person can leave a mark on an entire group. Worse, as an assistant coach, I was supposed to be a mentor, not the source of trouble. I'd like to thank Coach Carthel, Mr. McBroom, and President O'Brien for all their friendship and professionalism, in my tenure on the staff and for the way they handled my departure.

LEAF, A HEISMAN FINALIST, SHATTERED RECORDS AND LED WSU TO THE ROSE BOWL FOLLOWING THE 1997 SEASON.

"I'm pleased, relieved and thankful to now have this episode behind me. And when I say that, I'm talking about far more than the legal aspects – I'm talking about my long reliance on prescription painkillers. I'm proud to say that I have been clean for more than 17 months. In November of 2008 I voluntarily checked myself into the esteemed Orchard recovery center near Vancouver, B.C., and spent 42 days in in-patient care there, with an additional two months in the extended care program. And since then have continued to seek therapy and do anything that would help me become the man I and so many others know I can be. I have come away from that experience with a support group, with renewed faith in myself, and, as fate would have it, a great new job as well. I also came away with an even greater appreciation for my incredible family – my mother Marcia, my father and hero John and my brothers Jeffrey and Brady. Their support sometimes took the form of tough love and sometimes it took the form of an encouraging word or hug. All I can say is that I'm very blessed to have them in my life. When you hear people describe Montanans as salt-of-the-earth, I think my mom and dad are the perfect example of what that phrase is all about.

"Another part of my family – my extended family – also has been a tremendous source of strength and comfort for me over the last 17 months: the fans and graduates of Washington State University. For years, I kept a distance from the Cougar Nation because I felt I let them down in my professional career. I couldn't have been more wrong. There's a popular saying, "Once a Coug, Always a Coug." It's really true. So many people in and around WSU have reached out to help me. There are no words that can express my heartfelt gratitude.

"Finally, I'd like to share some thoughts about addiction and my particular brand of it – prescription painkillers. Deep in my heart, I knew I had a problem, but I convinced myself it wasn't a big deal because these weren't illegal drugs. They were prescribed by a doctor for my various shoulder, knee and wrist injuries. I didn't have a problem, I told myself, it's the people involved with cocaine who have problems. But I did have a problem. It finally hit me square in the face in West Texas. I finally had to look squarely in the mirror. And what I saw was a guy who wasn't living a life of integrity. I was lying to myself and hiding it from those around me. My secret came out, though. That forced me to confront my addiction, but also to ask for help. That is a key piece of addiction: asking for help. To anyone out there who is afraid of what they might find if they take an honest look in the mirror, please ask for help. You don't have to battle it alone. I know it's hard. I wished I had asked for help long ago. But I am proof that it's never too late, and that the battle can be won. Today, thanks to the support, guidance and true caring of so many amazing people who love me unconditionally, I am clean. I've been clean for 17 months – a fact I'm very proud of, and a fact anyone addicted to prescription painkillers can hopefully look at, and know that there is real hope for a better tomorrow."

And now you know why it's better today to be Ryan Leaf than Ben Roethlisberger.
