I don't see why that's a problem, personally.

Taken the other way, it keeps those players employed. Why pay an old guy $5M, when you can get the same production from someone much younger at half the price?

To me, if you can contribute like a $5M player, then you should be paid accordingly. I don't care if you're 21 or 31.
