    The devil is in the details but I'm just glad there is enough there to get to a tentative agreement (we assume).

    I'm genuinely relieved.

    Now about our situation, not so much.

    Any chance the conference will be streamed anywhere? I'd like to see it first hand.

    hopefully with the deal signed MLS can now work on other projects, such as getting Montreal into the league so we can kick Montreal's ass some more.

    and figure out the damn academy thing... and get that reserve league restarted.... thanks

    I was honestly never concerned that the season might not happen. Every party involved had way too much to lose.

    Maybe they exchanged free agency for some serious upward cap movement and increases to the minimums.

    C'mon man, don't be like that. You had your doubts like the rest of us. I can't think of anyone who's not breathing a sigh of real relief today.

    There'll be some of that. My guess is this:

    - Cap to $2.7 or $2.8 million
    - Free agency within the league for out of contract players
    - Date at which contracts automatically guaranteed now earlier in season
    - Minimum salaries increased (doubled?)

    Well if a strike has been averted then I say thank God, let us now put our attention to the game on the field. Lot's to look forward to this MLS season, not only to our own team, real grass, a new stand, new coach, but also for the MLS in general with a new team Philadelphia and their new stadium, and even the Red Bulls with their amazing Euro style soccer stadium Red Bull Arena. Let the games begin, yes I know it's the MLS not the greatest standard of soccer,however, it's our league and it's where our team plays lets enjoy what we have and hope for better days ahead for TFC and MLS in general.

    100 journo's on the call?!?!?! geez, that should be an indication right there you better have got it together as you don't have the luxury of massive publicity/support to carry the league through a strike/lockout
