as far as
- is commonly misused, as here: "As far as next season, it is too early to make forecasts" (Baltimore Sun). The error here has been exercising authorities since at least Fowler’s heyday and shows no sign of abating, either as a problem or as something that exercises authorities. The trouble is that "as far as" serves as a conjunction and as such requires a following verb. The solution is either to remove the conjunction ("As for next season, it is too early to make forecasts") or to supply the needed verb ("As far as next season goes, it is too early to make forecasts").
