More on Star Caps
As a follow up to Nathaniel’s post on the Star Caps hearing, the written testimony of all of the witnesses and the video of the hearing can be found here (note that the testimony from the witnesses does not begin until about the 1:26:48 mark).
Here is the full witness list: Roger Goodell, Commissioner, National Football League; DeMaurice Smith, Executive Director, National Football League Players Association; Rob Manfred, Executive Vice President, Labor and Human Resources, Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, Major League Baseball; Michael S. Weiner, General Counsel, Major League Baseball Players Association; Travis Tygart, Chief Executive Officer, United States Anti-Doping Agency; Jeffrey Standen, Professor of Law, Willamette University College of Law; Gabriel Feldman, Associate Professor of Law and Director, Sports Law Program, Tulane University Law School.
Also, although I may be a bit biased, the Minnesota Post did a good job of recapping the hearing.
Here’s an excerpt:
During additional testimony before the committee, Gabriel A. Feldman, associate professor of law at Tulane University and the director for the Tulane sports law program, laid out a more detailed argument against congressional action.
Finally, Mark Maske of the Washington Post wrote a piece discussing the study of state employee drug testing laws that I conducted for the hearing. The study concluded that only 3 states (Minnesota, Maryland, and North Carolina) currently have workplace drug testing laws that might conflict with the NFL’s performance enhancing drug testing policy. Many thanks to Andrew Miragliotta, a sports law student here at Tulane Law School, for helping with the study.
