NFL Makes Contingency Plan For 8-Game Season

Should the NFL and its players be unable to work out their differences in a timely manner, the league is ready to go all Solomon-like and cut its regular season in half. While fans may be disappointed and team employees could be out half a season’s worth of pay, at least the Bills and Lions have hope of avoiding their traditional double-digit loss campaigns.

Sports Business Journal Daily (membership required) reports the season could start in late November if the sides can’t come to an agreement before October. The hypothetical deal would allow for a free-agency period and training camp.

Football fans, is half a season better than no season?
