Lawyer Paul Champ told FIFPro, “Clubs agree with each other which players they will or will not negotiate with. That is collusion. It interferes with the player’s right to negotiate with any club.” These agreements mean that players have no choice but to accept existing contract terms, instead of attempting to secure better deals elsewhere. A number of players have corroborated these reports of collusion in interviews with Briarpatch.

Another influential figure is Nick Bontis, the president of the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA). Documents obtained by Briarpatch confirm that Bontis, a business professor at McMaster University, has been a speaker at two LabourWatch conferences. As reported by Mitchell Thompson for Briarpatch, LabourWatch is “Canada’s largest union-busting event.”

Good find Dezza. An interesting read. The struggle between the owners and players is normal and they will find a balance after a while. We will know things are good when both the owners and the players are complaining.
Recall the old days when the Canadian National team members were getting hammered and they went to Sudeyko for legal and negotiation help dealing with the CSA. The disheartening part of this article is the info about the Pres of the CSA. Hopefully the CSA and the Provincial Associations stay out the dispute.

This announcement seemed to surprise everyone.

At first I was like why are they waiting until 2023 and then I found out about the clusterfcuk involving them cancelling horse racing at the preferred stadium site, and that community protesting.
