NFL-steroidsThe NFL Players Association has filed a suit against the league Thursday following the suspension of five players who allegedly breached NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

All five players tested positive for bumetanide, a loop diuretic considered to be a masking of steroids and other performance boosters. NFLPA argues that the league knew of the tainted over-the-counter supplement and withheld the information from the players.

The lawsuit was meant to acquire a temporary injunction against the suspension, allowing the five players to be eligible to rejoin their respective teams towards the end of the regular season.

The five players were Kevin Williams and Pat Williams of the Minnesota Vikings, and Charles Grant, Deuce McAllister and Will Smith of the New Orleans Saints.

A sixth player, Houston’s long snapper Bryan Pittman, was also suspended but his case involved another type of diuretic. A seventh player, Atlanta’s Grady Jackson has not been handed a suspension; NFL’s counsel Jeff Pash had requested for additional information on Jackson’s case.

The Williamses had already obtained a temporary restraining order blocking their four-game suspensions from Hennepin County District Judge Gary Larson. The two tackles joined their team’s practice Thursday.

  Six players suspended for violation of NFL policy on anabolic steroids

NFL steroidsWhether their ingestion of a banned compound is intentional or unintentional, six NFL players will miss four games for violating the league’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

A section of the policy reads: “You and you alone are responsible for what goes into your body. Claiming that you used only legally available nutritional supplements will not help you in an appeal. … Even if they are bought over-the-counter from a known establishment, there is currently no way to be sure that they contain the ingredients listed on the packaging or have not been tainted with prohibited substances …If you take these products, you do so AT YOUR OWN RISK! For your own health and success in the league, we strongly encourage you to avoid the use of supplements altogether, or at the very least to be extremely careful about what you choose to take.”

The suspended players were running back Deuce McAllister and defensive linemen Charles Grant and Will Smith of New Orleans; defensive linemen Kevin and Pat Williams of Minnesota; and long snapper Bryan Pittman of Houston.

The Minnesota Vikings is expected to take most of the brunt of these suspensions since their run defense, ranked no. 2 in the league, would no longer be formidable for the next games with the absence of the Williamses.

The case of Atlanta’s Grady Jackson, another player implicated with the doping controversy, is still pending.  According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, Jeff Pash, the league’s chief counsel, had asked for additional information in the Jackson’s case.

Jackson has filed a lawsuit against StarCaps, maker of the weight-loss product he took as a supplement. Jackson’s camp said StarCaps engaged in “false advertising and unfair business practices”, saying the company did not mention bumetanide as one of its product’s ingredients.

Excluding Pittman, all the suspended players tested positive for bumetanide and blamed the spiked StarCaps pills for their failed tests.

starcaps_steroids_nflGrady Jackson, Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle, has followed the example of New Orleans Saints Jamar Nesbit.

Jackson is also suing Nikki Haskell’s StarCaps for getting him banned for four games, the typical penalty for first time offenders of the NFL’s policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.

Jackson and Nesbit are just two of the several NFL players who got suspended for doping for testing positive for bumetanide. It was alleged that StarCaps diet pills were tainted with the loop diuretic.

Bumetanide is among the NFL’s prohibited compounds since it is sometimes used as a masking agent for performance-enhancing drugs including anabolic steroids.

From the StarCaps.com is this statement: “We’ve received notice of a problem with an NFL player.We have referred the matter to our counsel and are taking all necessary steps to ensure that our customers receive product that is safe and effective. We have temporarily suspended shipping of StarCaps pending the results of our investigation.”

The other players who got involved in the bumetanide controversy were defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams of the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints trio Deuce McAllister, Will Smith and Charles Grant.

There was discussion that Grady Jackson was going to buy steroids and diuretics, but is now blaming starcaps on his problems.  Grady Jackson has been known to buy steroids in the past in the fairly open, which he shouldn’t do.
