The question about next year's quarterback shows just how serious this is. Waste of time and money. Slap them on the wrist already. We know pro athletes get special treatment.

"DATWA defines an employer as someone who pays an employee for performance and services, and that clearly is the Vikings in this case." That about sums up this whole case. The NFL doesn't pay them.

Although it was his fault. He didn't forget. He was discussing 2 different formations with position coaches. Both assumed it was their call. Yes, he is the head coach but he didn't "forget". I am not a fan of his either but if you are going to argue... get the facts!

The judge needs time tocollect his few for the ruling from each side. Then he can deside who bought him. Judges do it for cash and personal gain and stisfaction. Ask any child that has withnessed a judge moleste them. Most judges moleste without being there .

I'm am from the old school, carring the threat of the supension for 8 mo. is most likely more of a punishment than actural thing, this should end now! The league should get on with its regular business, like settle the negotions with the players union this year.

What do you mean 8 months? They've been fighting this since the end of the '08 season. That's over 1 year. They should have taken the suspension and been done with it. They knew they had taken something and were just looking for a loophole to get out of their punishment.

No, but the NFL is inter-state commerce and the constitution is crystal clear
as to who has jurisdiction there. Win, lose, or draw..........their fault,
the NFL's fault, nobodys fault..........the case belongs in federal court.
This particular state judge is simply flexing muscles he doesn't have.

I can't tell you how many hundreds of times I have heard the statement you made about beating the Packers. It's great you measure your entire seasons success on the fact that you beat the Packers. I suggest it is you who needs to hit the shower. Unfortunately as I understand it they have not yet gotten indoor plumbing in Ypsilanti.

I agree with you. The League has been scowling at our two tackles for a long time now. I think that should be considered as a mitigating circumstance: the wearing down of the players, and they should be "sentenced" to time already served. Skol Vikings.

I've been saying that all along but for a different reason. This involves a CBA (or a union agreement) and that is in the jurisdiction of the federal courts. I said right from the start that this judge overstepped his authority in issuing the injuction in the first place. It should have been asked for in a federal court.

What time served? Have the Williamses' sat out any games where they were healthy? Have they served any of their suspensions and nobody knows about it? They haven't "served" any time for violating the rules. It turns out that it wasn't just the CBA that they violated but their contracts as well for taking a diuretic when their contracts say that they aren't supposed to unless directed to by a doctor.
