So where does the never-ending StarCaps case go from here?

After today’s ruling in favor of the NFL, even the league isn’t sure what they well do about the ruling yet.

“We are pleased that the Minnesota Court of Appeals, like all other federal and state courts to hear the matter, has unanimously upheld the structure and operation of the NFL’s collectively bargained Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances,” the NFL said in a statement Tuesday via spokesman Greg Aiello.

“Today’s opinion confirms that the testing program did not violate Minnesota state law and vindicates the policy and procedures of the program. We are in the process of reviewing the decision and determining our next steps,” the statement concludes.

Florio believes the case could wind up in the Minnesota Supreme Court. We hope to get a viewpoint from the player’s side of things on PFT later Tuesday.
