You have to be kidding me, right??????
I am not one for drugs, or players using illegal drugs. The law suit in question was about 5 players. Three of the players are from the New Orleans Saints and the two from the Minnesota Vikings. I do understand the zero tolerance the NFL has about this. I was reading up on a news web site about this. The substance in question was not on ???DO NOT USE LIST???.

I had copied and pasted the below passage from the link below.

???Attorneys for the players' union argued that league officials knew a supplement called StarCaps contained a banned diuretic back in 2006 and did not specifically notify players or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
But the judge agreed with the NFL that players are responsible for what is in their bodies.
The judge's ruling pleased the NFL.???

Now, the million dollar question is if this supplement wasn???t on the list why would they the suspend these players. Think about this, if these players would have won this law suit it would have opened the door for everyone else who is using something.
There is no way you can tell me that this judge was not approached by the NFL. If not, two to one when it came up to selecting a judge, a judge that would or could help the NFL was selected.
