Philly Soccer Show: MLS Players' Union Contract Runs Out

By Greg Orlandini

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) -- Major League Soccer could have a labor situation on its hands, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show is here to makes sense of it all for you.  KYW's Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch are joined by local labor attorney Steve Holroyd.

The collective bargaining agreement between the MLS players' union and the league expired on January 31st, leaving open the possibility of a strike.

Holroyd, with his years of experience in the labor arena, gives some insight into the situation.  We discuss some the players demands and how the owners could react.   We also look at how a players strike will impact not only MLS, but the sport of soccer in America.
