Players Association sues NFL over suspensions

Make nooooooooooooooooooooo mistake about it, folks. This is the union making a power play against the league. The bottom line here is guys tested positive for a banned substance in a supplement the league tells players they should avoid. The league created this policy ALONG WITH the NFLPA. They created it, endorsed it, and enforced it. Now, they are making a play for more power over the league, and using the courts to do it. Ugh. Again, this policy the league suspended these players under is a policy the NFLPA helped create and endorsed. This whole thing is, of course, a major distraction from what we should be talking about: GAMES! I'm no legal expert, but all my legal friends say the same thing: These guys will get suspended anyway for breaking league rules because, legally, they do not have a leg to stand on to stop the suspensions. And fights like this could create bad blood for when owners and players renegotiate the collective bargaining agreement this off-season.
