[photogallerylink id=19769 align=left]A possible 8 game NFL season is all we may get if this lockout continues on the path that it is. But the league is staying optimistic that they will have a full season this year.

According to Fannation.com this is what has to happen:

Cris Collinsworth may turn out to be right, after all. The NFL is considering season lengths for 2011 as short as eight regular-season games, half its normal number, as the league plans for the possibility of an abbreviated season because of the nearly three-month-long lockout, sources said.

An eight-game season could start in late November. Allowing for five weeks up front for free agency, training camps and perhaps one preseason game, the contingency suggests that the league and players could reach a deal on a new labor agreement as late as mid- to late-October and still salvage a season.

For now, the league has said its focus remains on playing a full season.

Key owners and executives met face to face with player representatives last week in hopes of resolving the labor strife.

I’m a big football fan and I hate that this is still going on for as long as it has. There is too much money at stake and too many egos and greedy people doing all the negotiating.
