I find this entire issue strange. I agree with the players in that if the stuff was not listed on the package how can they be repremanted, but I can not agree with them using a state law to overtake the NFL player rules that they signed up to play with. I can see if they win, there will be more issues with players down the line using more lienient state laws to skirt the rules that other players in tougher states will not be able to.

Not only was it not listed on the package, but the NFL knew this information and never passed it on to the teams/players.
