  Saints Jamar Nesbit blames spiked supplement for his doping suspension

new-orleans-saints-steroidsNew Orleans Saints guard Jamar Nesbit thinks he’s been wronged and wants vindication.

Nesbit filed a lawsuit against StarCaps, the company behind the over-the-counter dietary supplement allegedly spiked with the diuretic bumetanide.

The lawsuit seeks $235,000 for to compensate for his lost wages resulting from his four-game suspension. Nesbit was penalized by the NFL for violation of the league’s policy on anabolic steroid and related substances in late September this year.

StarCaps has recently suspended its sale of its controversial product.

Several other NFL players have tested positive for bumetanide and they all denied wrongdoing. They blamed the same StarCaps diet system for testing positive for the prohibited compound.

Among those implicated in the controversial doping case were Nesbit’s fellow Saints: running back Deuce McAllister and defensive ends Will Smith and Charles Grant. Minnesota Vikings defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams could also face doping suspensions due to the same infringement.

  Maker of dietary supplement suspends sale amidst NFL doping scandal

starcaps_steroids_nflStarCaps has decided to suspend the sale of its weight loss diet system, which is allegedly the root of the NFL controversy as several players tested positive for the diuretic bumetanide.

In an emailed statement to media organizations, the company explained: “We’ve received notice of the problem with the NFL. We have referred the matter to our counsels and are taking all necessary steps to ensure that our customers receive product that is safe and effective.

“We have temporarily suspended shipping pending the result of our investigation,” the statement continued.

The web site for Nikki Haskell, the founder of StarCaps, also said, “Until further notice the sale of StarCaps is suspended.”

Ms Haskell is a diet advisor/socialite/internationally recognized hostess/soon-to-be- defendant to a lawsuit filed by New Orleans Saints’ Jamar Nesbit.

Nesbit was suspended by the NFL in September this year when he tested positive for the notorious diuretic. He is now seeking a $235,000 in lost salary due to his four-game suspension and damage to his reputation.

According to Nesbit’s lawyer, Brian Malloy, the supposed to be all-natural weight loss StarCaps product was tainted with bumetanide. This diuretic is included in the NFL’s prohibited list as it is often used as a masking agent for illicit drugs like anabolic steroids.

At Amazon.com, you can find this ad on StarCaps diet product:

  Two New Orleans Saints players named in latest NFL doping controversy

NFL-steroidsAccording to news reports, New Orleans Saints’ Deuce McAllister and Will Smith were among the several players who violated NFL’s steroid policy and related substances.

Fox 31 television in Denver reported that there are between six to 10 players who have tested positive for Bumetanide, a diuretic. ESPN.com, meanwhile, reported the number is more than 10 and may even exceed 15.

The sport league has not offered any comment on the reports so far, but attorney David Cornwell, who is reportedly handling some of the athletes’ appeal cases, has stated his disapproval about the reports, particularly the naming of the two athletes.

“These men are entitled to confidentiality and entitled to go through an appeal process, so the (Fox 31) report … is completely unfair,” Cornwell said. “The cornerstone of any workplace testing program, especially one in professional sports with high-profile people, is confidentiality.

“The recent reports about pending appeals by players who are alleged to have used weight loss supplements reflect the most egregious violation of the NFL steroid policy. The foundation of the policy is both a player’s right to appeal and an absolute right to confidentiality. By leaking this story, the ‘source’ is clearly attempting to put their thumb on the scale of justice and harm these men.”

Cornwell refused to name any of his clients or divulge the exact number of the athletes involved.

Just last month, another Saints player Jamar Nesbit was also suspended for violating NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. Nesbit was barred from playing for four games, and he has rejoined his team’s active roster Monday, October 20.

Bumetanide is a diuretic and this type of compound works by facilitating weight loss through its promotion of water loss via urine excretion. Diuretics are often used as masking agents because they have the ability to dilute urine by increasing renal flow, making it difficult to for laboratories to detect anabolic steroids and other banned compounds. For this reason, diuretics have been included in the World Anti-Doping Agency’s 2007 prohibited list.

  Another NFL player suspended for steroid use

NFL-steroidsIt is of no wonder why many believe the National Football League is the premier sports organization in the United States which has the most number of players who take anabolic steroids.

Another NFL player has bitten the dust for using these banned compounds. Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Darryl Blackstock was suspended for violating the league’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances.

“I’ve apologized to my coaches and teammates for an unfortunate mistake,” Blackstock said. “I did not intentionally violate the policy, but I know it’s my responsibility to use only approved nutritional supplements, and I didn’t realize I was taking an over-the-counter product that included a banned substance. I also want to apologize to our fans, and I’ll do everything I can to be ready to come back strong next month.”

Apologies accepted, disciplinary action imposed. Blackstock has been suspended for four games

Early this month, Dallas Cowboy’s practice squad receiver Mike Jefferson was suspended for the same violation. New Orleans Saints’ Jamar Nesbit, meanwhile, was also suspended late September for same infringement. Both Jefferson and Nesbit received four-game suspension without pay.

The NFL’s statistics on steroid use is also the reason why many don’t believe Tony Mandarich when he denied he had used steroids during his lackluster career in the NFL. Mandarich stated he had only used steroids during his Michigan State days. C’mon, not using steroids while playing in the NFL? That’s like hearing Michael Jackson saying he did not undergo rhinoplasty while visiting his cosmetic surgeon!

  Saints’ Jamar Nesbit blames tainted supplement for failed doping test

NFL-steroidsJamar Nesbit is planning to take legal action against the company who provided him with tainted supplement.

Nesbit was recently penalized with a four-game suspension for violating NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances. And he will not be paid with that suspension.

“My only comment was that I took something that was advertised as being natural,” said Nesbit in one interview. “I looked at it three times. I have to be the one who has to take responsibility for what goes into my body.”

From his words, Nesbit has no intention to use banned compounds but, unfortunately for him, sports organizations like the NFL do not argue a case based on intent.

The 10-year veteran is not the first one to point finger elsewhere when caught in a sticky situation and, honestly, we hope he will be able to prove himself innocent of any wrongdoing and restore his reputation as a clean guy. Nesbit has never failed a drug test prior to this incident.

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis expressed regret over Nesbit’s case.

“We are disappointed in the suspension of Jamar,” Loomis said in a statement. “We will support Jamar through this process and look forward to having him rejoin the team soon.”

Nesbit is expected to return to Saints’ active roster October 20.
