  • Suspension stands

    A federal judge has ruled that the NFL can suspend the five players that were found to have taken StarCaps last season.
    The Williams Wall in Minnesota, Saints DEs Charles Grant and Will Smith, and free agent Deuce McAllister will all be suspended four games to open the 2009 season. It's a major blow to all parties. The suspensions were originally pushed back because the players took their case to a U.S. District court, claiming that the league didn't give fair warning about StarCaps. The league, however, maintains that Bumetanide in StarCaps is a masking agent for steroids and that all players are responsible for anything put in their bodies.

    What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
    they get smoked.

        Pretty much pills that can mask steroid use or for weight loss from what I understand.

          Seeing how only Yahoo is the one reporting this and None of the major sites are reporting this I am sort of not thinking this is the case. I expect the Williams Wall to be suspended but I dont trust yahoo at all. The only thing that came out today other this report is that the Judge denies claims by the Williams Wall but nothing about NFL winning the whole thing. It doesn't look good for Viking Fans but Nothing definite. Its just that the Judge agrees with the NFL but no official ruling yet for what I can see.

          I am not too worried about them being suspended for the first 4 games. The vikings first 4 games were against teams in the top 10 of the draft. Sure all those teams have gotten better in a way but I am not concerned about starting off the season 1-3 or 0-4. I see a 3-1 or even a 2-2 at worse.

            You think they'd make up a judge's ruling??

            Yeah the queens really lucked out on their schedule when they're suspended. But it should equal a win for the Packers in week 4. :)

              I dont think they made it up, Im thinking they are assuming which pretty much is going to rule Suspension Stands. Once someone else reports that the suspension stands I will accept it but I am not going to take yahoo sports word right away.

                  Oh Goodie, the Williams Wall will be fresh, rested, and healthy for us in week 5. Good for us, and our running offense.

                      That quote in the origianl post is misleading, it's partially correct the judge dismissed the main lawsuit from the NFLPA for the players. But while in doing so he sent the 2 claims on behalf of Kevin & Pat Williams dealing with Minnesota's laws back down to the Minnesota state court. So the suspension still is not a definite thing for the Vikings Players.

                        Great, just great, here we go again. Defense is going to be a problem again this year.
