The teams may come to rue this point themselves. I think 7 yrs minimum, if you wish to cite insurance, but maybe ten yrs max is more fair. I don't like the lifetime deals myself. With the new share level and adding no greater than 5% variation year to year in contract value should close the other loopholes.
