The National Lacrosse League officially canceled the first two weeks of the regular season.
Saskatchewan Rush was scheduled to play against Georgia on December 1st, and the house opener was expected to be December 8 against the division's rival Colorado Mammoth.
The league suspended the deadline yesterday to ensure that the Professional Lacrosse Acting Union (PLPA) will submit a counter offer for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
NLL rejected the offer after reviewing CounterProposal.
. We believe these conditions will lead to both short and long-term negative consequences on our member clubs and the league we do not want to accept,. The National Lacrosse League said in a press release.
PLPA instructed the players not to participate in the training camps or to serve physically until a new CBA was established.
