This is a small vs. big market issue. The small markets want contract length limits because the type of long contract we've seen involves amounts of money they can't afford paid up front, with lower salaries towards the end to lower the cap hit.
A simple solution would be to make a player's salary and cap hit the same. Doing so would leave the option of long contracts available to teams and players who want them, while removing the advantage the current system gives big-market teams.
