Poll: Do you support the MLS owners or players in talks to prevent a strike?

strike

In Washington DC, several Major League Soccer owners and representatives from the MLS Players’ Union are locked in talks to avert a strike. The first game of the 2015 season is scheduled for Friday night with Chicago Fire playing LA Galaxy in California. But depending on the outcome of the talks today, it’s possible that the entire first weekend of the 2015 season may be postponed until further notice.

If a strike happens, that means that the debut of the 20th MLS season won’t be shown this weekend on FOX Sports, ESPN, Univision and Sky Sports, among others, which will be a huge blow to MLS after sealing deals with the major TV broadcasters.

But in this process, who do you blame? Is it the players or the owners? If you had to side with one of the groups, which one would it be? Share your opinion by voting below. And if you have more opinions to share on the topic, add your feedback in the comments section below.

    I don’t back either one as they both have positions that I don’t think are fair to the other party. It’s their mess and hopefully they can take care of it to provide some stability and opportunity for growth.
