Serie A season delayed, latest soccer strike problem in Europe

Diego Forlan might have to wait a little longer to play with his new club Inter Milan.

Just after the players agreed to lift a strike in La Liga (Spain), Italy’s Serie A is now having their share of problems. The season, supposed to start this past Saturday, and a new collective contract put forth by the players was voted 18-2 against it. The last minute deal failed to materialize, and now the start of the domestic season is in doubt. The only other strike in Serie A history occurred in 1994, and this latest strike might push the start of the season back until early to mid September- or more. Quite frankly, there is no end in sight, and I’m more worried about the Serie A season than I was about the La Liga strike.

Analysis:Diego Forlan now went from one problem that was quickly resolved, with Atletico Madrid, to another, where he will now play for Inter Milan when the strike ends. Good news for Inter Milan, as they lost Samuel Eto’o to Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala for a staggering amount of money. Reportedly, the same club is trying to shell out money to steal Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic, which I find remarkable if it happens.

    Yeah it seems like almost every sport has had a work stoppage this summer/fall.

    I wish that Forlan would have gone to England – I absolutely love watching that guy play.
