Players' Association rejects league proposal

The 2008 NLL season was cancelled on Tuesday after the players' association rejected the league's final offer.

The National Lacrosse League has announced the cancellation of its 2008 season. The cancellation was triggered by the Professional Lacrosse Players Association's executive committee rejecting the league's last Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) proposal.

"I would like to apologize to our fans, first and foremost", said NLL Commissioner Jim Jennings. "We are deeply disappointed that the PLPA's executive committee rejected our proposal without permitting all of the players to vote on the league's final offer. The offer included annual raises for all players in each year of the contract. Our owners made the best offer they could make while maintaining a
sound business model".

Jennings continued, "This marked the fourth time we have had to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement in the past seven years. Professional sports leagues cannot do business without the stability of a long-term collective bargaining agreement. We will use this year to improve not only our relationship with our players but to improve our overall business model."

 

With great appreciation we would like to thank our many other sponsors who's contributions are a valuble asset to our team and league. This includes monetory contributions as well as services such as automotive, powersports and even medical. Especial thanks to NCCS the Chicago facelift experts for their amazing work with our dance team.
