Representatives for the Professional Lacrosse Players' Association (PLPA) have voted to accept a new collective bargaining agreement from the National Lacrosse League.

Now it's up to the players to ratify the vote and they have until noon today to do so via e-mail.

Calgary Roughnecks player rep Kaleb Toth confirmed the union has recommended the players take the new contract.

Calgarian Geoff Snider, who plays for the Philadelphia Wings said he has faith in the team reps and will vote to accept.

"In my opinion, if the reps are all voting to approve the deal, then I trust their judgement and the union's ability to pass on that information," said Snider.

Insidelacrosse.com stated last night the PLPA was going to accept the deal, citing the term as a seven-year deal with an opt-out after five for the union.

If the season gets the green light, the schedule will have to modified or re-done, and expansion Boston will not take part.

Even if the players ratify the deal, it may still be too late to save the upcoming season.
