The Starcaps Scandal, in Brief

Big Daddy Drew, in part of the weekly, must-read "Dick Joke Jamboroo," on what's going on with the maybe-suspensions of the Vikings' Williams tandem:

A number of players took a supplement that contained a banned substance: Bumetanide. BUT this substance wasn’t listed on the label. Not only that, the NFL knew that the supplement contained Bumetanide, but failed to warn the player’s union or the players themselves.

Yet, the league still wants to suspend Kevin Williams and company anyway, claiming they are responsible for what they put in their bodies. So, by the NFL’s logic, if some crazy asshole decided to sprinkle cocaine in cans of Spaghetti-O’s (a move I recommend), and every player who ate it then tested positive for coke as a result, that would warrant a suspension and losing a quarter of their yearly salary.

I bet Kevin and Pat Williams could eat a LOT of Spaghetti-O's, coke-laced or not.
