NFLPA "DISTURBED" BY MEDIA LEAKS REGARDING SAPP'S DRUG TESTS
Published April 24, 1995
NLFPA Asst Exec Dir Doug Allen said he was "very concerned" about leaks regarding failed drug tests by Univ. of Miami's Warren Sapp. Allen: "I'm real disturbed to hear that this information on Warren Sapp has apparently been leaking again and will pursue that report with the league." Allen said that players "come under the union umbrella" once they attend scouting combines. According to NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, an investigation into the matter will begin next week. Allen: "We're not going to let this matter rest until we find out what happens and make sure it never happens again." According to USA TODAY's Bryan Burwell, the league's testing, enforcement and treatment "are handled by independent organizations which have the players' best interest at heart." Allen stressed that the reason for confidentiality "is not to hide it but to deal with the problem properly" (USA TODAY, 4/24).
