MLS Players Union and Ownership Agree To New CBA

YES! The Season Shall Start On Time

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

You will have to excuse me for not getting on this sooner, but I was out with the family enjoying a nice evening that got that much better with word that the Major League Soccer Players Union and Ownership agreed to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Let that sink in: WE HAVE A NEW CBA!

Our very own Clint Irwin had this to say:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Extremely proud of all the <a href="">@MLSPlayersUnion</a> reps and members for working together to accomplish so much. Time for First Kick! <a href="">#unity2015</a></p>&mdash; Clint Irwin (@ClintIrwin) <a href="">March 5, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Bottom line is this:  If you are a Colorado Rapids fan or a fan of professional soccer in the United States, this is a very big deal.  The idea of the season not starting on time could have been a brutal death nail for soccer, instead the sides worked hard and got a deal done.  Details are sketchy at this point, but bottom line is this:  we have a Rapids match this weekend!

Can I say this:  Come on you Rapids!
