Report: Players vote in favor of a strike

The Major League Soccer labor situation look ready to get much worse before it gets better.

The Washington Post is reporting that the MLS players union has voted resoundingly in favor of a strike if  a new Collective Bargaining Agreement isn't agreed to before the start of the season, with the vote put at more than 350 in favor of a strike and just two against a strike.

Neither the player's union or MLS have commented on the report yet, but the vote is in line with what players have been saying for some time. It seems pretty inevitable that the union will strike right before the start of the season if the league does not budge in negotiations. Now the question is whether MLS will seriously consider some concessions. If not, we could be headed for a strike, which would be devastating for a league heading into a very important season.

What do you think of this news? Think MLS will start to budge? Still don't believe the player's will strike?
