NLL is cancelled

The 14 team National Lacrosse League has canceled its season with the passing of a deadline imposed by owners for reaching a new collective bargaining agreement with the Professional Lacrosse Players' Association. Deputy commissioner George Daniel said owners couldn't agree to play in an uncapped system and that a luxury tax system proposed by the players was also unworkable. Under the proposal payrolls would have gone up significantly had the NLL agreed with the PLPA's proposals, and competitive balance would have been eroded, said Daniel. Given that prospect, "We'd rather not be in business at all," he said.

Am I the only one that didn't know this league was still around? Next they'll be telling me that Cart racing still exists.
