The two sides h ave to split the difference 10 year deal with a longer max contract length or a 8 year deal with a shorter max. contract length.

The deal is there and in sight! Losing a season will not resolve anything! All that happens is make whole goes away and they start all over again! Get it done ofr gods sake. It's too close to give up now! Money is solved so what the hell is the hold up!
The money was solved if the players were willing to accept the 5 year contract limit. If they aren't, the money is far from solved. The owners are very unlikely to budge on the contract length. It is the one thing the players will probably have to swallow whole if they want to play, and the sooner the players understand this, the sooner the season can start.
