MLS CBA deal: who got what? who gave up what?
by Paul Kennedy on Thursday, Mar 5, 2015 2:23 AM EST
Photo An agreement in principle was reached between MLS and the MLS Players Union early Wednesday evening on a five-year collective bargaining agreement, ending the threat of the league's first work stoppage. The historic agreement includes restricted free agency, "more movement," MLS Commissioner Don Garber noted on Sports Center, "than we probably thought we would provide when the league was launched." That does not mean all players were happy. Far from it.

IFAB nearly gets one right, UEFA gets it all wrong
Well, well -- how about this? Had to happen some time, I suppose, so here we are: I find myself in agreement with an IFAB decision. At least, partially so.

"This wasn't an easy decision. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my entire life. I told my teammates that and I stand by that. The fact that at some point in our careers as players we're going to be able to choose where we want to live and what's best for us, in my eyes, is huge. And it puts a lot of responsibility on the clubs now to really treat their players well while they're there. I think that's a key note that shouldn't be lost in this entire thing. It's responsibility."
