If the league knew Starcaps was concealing Bumetanide, there was no reason not to tell the players.
Here's the big problem I see--
the league didn't suspend the first player who tested positive because of Starcaps, back in 2006
Why did the league do this? I don't think there's a reason you can give that will lead to these new players testing positive being justly suspended.
Mind you that was from an agents website but still good info.
To your question about why not tell the players. Simply, it is not required per the C.B.A.
Why did the league do this? I do not know but it really has no bearing on the case before the Judge . IF I was a betting man like GNG I would put hard cash on it but I am not, so will not.
BUT,,,,These guys will sit for 4 games in my opinion and I have researched it a fair amt.
Which 4 games is yet to be determined.
Its not required by the CBA, but if you're employing someone, know that there's a good chance they're doing something
that could kill or seriously injure them
, and they don't know about it, why wouldn't you help them.
More importantly, why didn't they suspend the first guy? Any answer to that question does not lead to good answers from the NFL.
Just playing the game can lead to injury obviously. Just because they SHOULD do something does not mean that they have to by law and that is the important distinction here. The first guy and his situation has no bearing on this case in my opinion. I think that Judge Homer feels that since the NFL dragged it's feet on this matter so can he. I think the NFL now wishes that they would of brought the case before Judge Doty. He at least is experienced in NFL matters.
I still think that they will sit 4 games but it is looking like it will be the first 4 next year.
