Before MURPHY, BENTON, and SHEPHERD, Circuit Judges.

In these consolidated appeals, the National Football League (NFL), Dr. John Lombardo, Independent Administrator of the Policy on Anabolic Steroids and Related Substances, and Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s Vice President of Law and Labor Policy, appeal the district court’s*fn1 order, concluding that the Minnesota statutory claims alleged by Kevin Williams and Pat Williams of the Minnesota Vikings (collectively, “the Players”) are not preempted by section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act (“section 301″ or “LMRA”), 29 U.S.C. § 185. The Players cross-appeal the district court’s order concluding that their Minnesota common law claims are preempted by section 301. In addition, the National Football League Players Association (the “Union”), the certified collective bargaining representative of all NFL players, appeals the district court’s order confirming the arbitration awards which upheld the Players’ suspensions. We affirm in all respects.
