The Pre-season and the lockout.
 
So lets say the lockout drags on a bit more.
I keep hearing that the preseason will be affected if a deal isnt done by July 15th.
So does that mean just one preseason game? Can we have a season with just two or three preseason games?
If we drop a preseason game do we have to shorten the regular season?
Is there a drop dead date that will affect the regular season?
I'm not necessarily pestering everyone with questions, just looking for discussion on this....and I am quite curious how the schedule can/could be altered.

Sure they could shorten the preseason without it impacting the regular season.

My opinion is a deal gets done in the next week. Some of the latest rumors seem to be hinting a deal is close.

Really, the first casualty will be the Hall of Fame game. Which would be a big black mark on the whole thing, even though the HOF game usually blows.

Really, there could be three preseason games and nothing of consequence would change. It just makes it harder to evaluate talent in game situations and what guys u do and don't want to keep on the 53 man roster.

I would imagine they have an idea as to how far they could shorten practice (probably 1 week), and then they most likely would start chopping preseason games, then chopping actual games. An interesting option I've heard is if they have to chop all preseason games then they might run the regular schedule allowing the teams to keep all their players until Oct. which then all teams would have to be down to the required number.

I think that would be cool because if your team is up by a nice margin, or loosing miserably then they could stick in the Rookies for a longer look in actual games. The only bad issue would be if all your games are close and you can't afford to throw them out there, then I guess the team would have to make some decisions.

If your looking for actual dates though July 15 is the first I've heard of so far which would effect preseason.

Well, really the problem with losing preseason games is the hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue. Owners and players don't want to get out there to make sure everyone is healthy and ready to play the opener. It's really to get that money

Yep too much money at stake, which is why they'll get a deal done.

..Well I want to see the good in everyone and forget this whole thing is mostly about greed, so I'm going to ignore you and say my way is right.

I got together with the "core" of our fantasy football league a couple weeks ago at a bbq...man we are chomping at the bit to secure a date for a draft. Preseason is kinda pivotal for us evaluating talent as well. A buddy of mine who blogs for a Raiders site said they were told them no way in hell owners are gonna just lose this year's preseason games, that the preferable action would be sliding the season back first before any cancelation of games.

Well, without preseason games the hot dog vendor doesn't get paid, the ushers don't get paid, the custodians don't get paid...so they're looking out for everyone :)

Funny how money and greed effect sport: in France this season a rugby club was taken several points in the standings because they hadn't enough money, and now we're talking about loosing nfl games because there's too much money

Slide the season back?
Hmmmm....that would be interesting.
I hope thats an avenue vs losing regular games.

According to the breakfast links on the NFC East blog on ESPN it comes out of the redskins park the lockout is ending sunday which he said was very believable.
