Argue want you want about the difference - relevant or not - but a 12yr contract for ANY player is just as absurd as NYI's 15 yr deal that has essentially paved the way for long term deals.

of course, no team will go that far for PC reasons of being compared to the DP deal. Smart in that respect, but most of these superterm deals are pretty dumb.
