Are Football Federation Australias two major concessions to Melbourne City enough to get out the mega-rich A-League clubs chequebook to sign Tim Cahill?The introduction of a new guest player role has been tailor made for the veteran Socceroo, and FFA chief executive David Gallop admitted as much on Wednesday.Im not calling it the Tim Cahill rule but I can understand if others might, he said.Cahill, 36, has been the most marketable Socceroo - and perhaps Australian sportsman full stop - for the best part of a decade.Since he left English Premier League club Everton four years ago, it has been a bone of contention that he chose to continue his career in the US and China over the A-League.Recognising this transfer window may be their last shot to see Cahill play in the league, FFA is pulling out all the stops.We all know there are discussions going on with Tim Cahill, he said.Were looking at a range of measures to make it attractive to him.The rules are now in place to accommodate that and its something were very keen to see.People love seeing big stars and certainly Tim would be a huge star in the A-League.Gallop praised the other nine A-League clubs for allowing the rule change, saying it showed maturity and an understanding everyone would benefit from the move.City, which began pre-season training this week, have declined to comment on their interest in Cahill.Along with the guest player concession approved this week, FFA have also allowed Melbourne City to rebrand their playing strips to match the blue of parent club Manchester City.A differentiation has been made between Sydney FCs Sky Blue and Citys City Blue, which has been mocked heartily on social media.The difference might not show up on a colour swab, but Gallop explained it was about branding.City have made it clear that Sky Blue is not an expression that theyre interested in. City Blue is, he said.Its a smart move for the A-League ... the global identity of Manchester City perhaps wasnt being fully utilised.Gallop also said he expected to appoint a new A-League chief to replace departed executive Damien de Bohun shortly.Were deep into the process and weve got a small number of people still in the running, he said.

IRVING, Texas -- Baseball players and owners reached a tentative agreement on a five-year labor contract Wednesday night, a deal that will extend the sports industrial peace to 26 years since the ruinous fights in the first two decades of free agency.After days of near round-the-clock talks, negotiators reached a verbal agreement about 3 1/2 hours before the expiration of the current pact. Then they worked to draft a memorandum of understanding, which must be ratified by both sides.Its great! Another five years of uninterrupted baseball, Oakland catcher Stephen Vogt said.In announcing the agreement, Major League Baseball said it will make specific terms available when drafting is complete.As part of the deal, the luxury tax threshold rises from $189 million to $195 million next year, $197 million in 2018, $206 million in 2019, $209 million in 2020 and $210 million in 2021, a person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been signed.Tax rates increase to 20 percent for first offenders, 30 percent for second offenders and 50 percent for third offenders. There also is a new surtax of 12 percent for teams $20 million to $40 million above the threshold and additional amounts for teams more than $40 million above the threshold.There will be a new penalty for signing certain free agents that could affect a teams draft order. There is no change to limits on active rosters, which remain at 25 for most of the season and 40 from Sept. 1 on.Management failed to obtain an international draft of amateurs residing outside the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada, but did get a hard cap on each teams annual bonus pool for those players.ddddddddddddNegotiators met through most of Tuesday night in an effort to increase momentum in the talks, which began during spring training. This is the third straight time the sides reached a new agreement before expiration, but a deal was struck eight weeks in advance of expiration in 2006 and three weeks ahead of expiration in 2011.Talks took place at a hotel outside Dallas where the players association held its annual executive board meeting.Tony Clark, the first former player to serve as executive director of the union, and others set up in a meeting room within earshot of a childrens choir practicing Christmas carols. A man dressed as Santa Claus waited nearby.While there were no games to be lost at this point, baseball had faced the prospect of a hold on transactions and other offseason business only hours after the Mets finalized their $110 million, four-year contract for Yoenis Cespedes.Baseball had eight work stoppages from 1972-95, the last a 7 1/2-month strike in 1994-95 that led to the first cancellation of the World Series in 90 years. The 2002 agreement was reached after players authorized a strike and about 3 1/2 hours before the first game that would have been impacted by a walkout.The peace in baseball is in contrast to the recent labor histories of other major sports. The NFL had a preseason lockout in 2011, the NBA lost 240 games to a lockout that same year and the NHL lost 510 games to a lockout in 2012-13. ' ' '
