It's about time! At least this loser dosen't have a Super Bowl ring. If you choose to try to bypass the rules, be prepared to face the consequences. And before you whine that he took a diet pill, his contract also says no taking diet pills to make weight.

That clears up any possible gray area. You are responsible for anything you consume. No exceptions.

The fairness of is it that it is an attempt to eliminate the use and masking of performance enhancing substances. If you want to be bigger, stronger, or faster, do the work.

I know the Williamses were not accused of using performance enhancing drugs, but it it sends a strong message to anyone who would consider using them.

It does not say no diet pills to make weight you retard! The league knew this stuff was in it and did not punish over a dozen players but when it came the following year even though they never again said anything about it they punished several other players. Learn to read you freaking IDIOT!

Update on Fat Pat's punishment:

Roger Goodell has ordered Fat Pat to remain with the Vikings for the next season. "While this may seem excessive and cruel, it is my intention to let the players know I mean it this time. Now, I gotta decide what to do with that Bert Favor guy and those pics of his 'fat pat'."

'No way', said the two tons of fun.'I'm outa heah. I'll play for Detroit before I stay with this mess'. The forklift carefully lowered him into his dump truck and slowly pulled away.....

Talk about a waste of the court's time! They should have just served out their suspensions!!! Both the Williamses should be forced to reimburse the courts for their time wasted on this. CHEATERS!!!

It most certainly does state this in an NFL players contract.

Millions of dollars are at stake, the sum total of which depends on how the Williamses' lawsuit against the NFL is resolved and whether the Vikings seek reimbursement from their defensive stars.

At issue for Kevin Williams is up to $4.9 million, for Pat Williams as much as $3 million. All of it is jeopardized because the players tested positive for a banned substance found in the tainted weight-loss supplement they were using.

Angelo Wright, Pat Williams' agent, acknowledged that his client might have to repay a $400,000 weight bonus because Williams apparently violated

terms of his contract and the collective-bargaining agreement by using diuretics the night before weigh-ins.
