Suspended Broncos players fighting back
Question of the Day
“In this case, the NFL fired the collector for obvious dereliction of duties. At the hearing, the NFL administrators all admitted the collector made many mistakes and that’s why he was fired. And yet they still suspend these two players.”
The NFL Players Association also chimed in on the matter Tuesday, questioning the process followed by the NFL before the league suspended Williams and McBean for violating the policy on performance-enhancing substances. The players union said it’s “disappointed” with the six-game suspensions.
The union said in its release that there was evidence of breaches in the collection protocol and other procedural irregularities. Also, the NFLPA said the league handed down the bans “even though the specimen collector was fired by his agency for not following procedures.”
A four-game suspension for Broncos tight end Virgil Green was not addressed in an NFLPA news release. Green has said he now has been approved for the medication for which he was been suspended. Green is not party to the lawsuit filed by Williams and McBean.
“It’s a huge deal professionally and personally,” Ginsberg said. “D.J. has been playing for eight years and he’s never violated any test for either steroids or illegal substances. Here, the NFL is broadcasting publicly that he failed a steroids test. He’s very upset.”
