NFLPA Continues Collusion Claim Against League, Alleging Salaries Were Restrained

THE WAR ON DRUGS: In Boston, Greg Bedard wrote MLB is “light years ahead of where the NFL is in terms of the next fight against performance-enhancing drugs, which absolutely is a player health issue.” Bedard: “You’d think this would be embarrassing to the NFL and the players’ union. It should be. Instead, the bickering just continues.” The NFL “has its opinion on the delay.” NFL Senior VP/Law & Labor Policy Adolpho Birch said, “This is a continuation of the union’s strategy to delay, deny, and distract. What is missing from the MLB agreement is a population study. Apparently, baseball players know that the test for HGH is reliable, valid, and scientifically sound. If the NFLPA had adopted the same position as the MLB players, we would already be well on our way to eliminating the threat of HGH from our game” (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/14).
