Poll - The Serie A Strike Who Is To Blame?

Last Friday Italian players’ association president Damiano Tommasi confirmed the strike was on and a delay to the Serie A season was unavoidable. All 20 Serie A team captains signed a document this month threatening of a strike if a new collective contract was not signed before September 28th.

“We tried right up until the end, but all the attempts were in vain,” Tommasi said.

The only other players’ strike in Serie A history was March 1996. As this season delay is starting to look greater than 7 days, have your say and vote on who the problem starts with.
