As the clock keeps ticking on the collective bargaining agreement talks, Friday's First Kick hangs in the balance. Share news as it leaks and discuss it here.

Yesterday we told you the best of what we know about the status of talks between the MLS Players' Union and the league's owners as a proposal offering a type of raise-capped free agency status for veteran players was brought to the table. Since then, the slow drip of information has continued, suggesting that progress has been made (after talks apparently continued until 6 AM).

The negotiations resumed this morning in Washington after that marathon session. Is there a "magic number" of age/years in league that will convince the players to sign? Will the owners cave or start pulling other goodies off the table? What will we all be doing this Sunday? Keep your eyes on Twitter.

If you'd like a primer on how we got to this point, don't miss Jeremiah's Q&A.

We'll start with the news that Chicago Fire have indeed boarded a plane to Los Angeles and plan to practice this afternoon.

This is your open thread.

In the meantime, this Twitter feed should keep you up to date:
