some of the individual contract rules are redundant...if you eliminate backloading of contracts by only letting it vary year to year by 5% so you can't add fake years to the end to lower the average then there is really no need/benefit to limiting the contract length to 5 years. the extra years were only a problem because it lowered the cap hit with fake years but you already eliminated that with the first thing
so the owners can 'give in' on some of the rules but still get what they wanted from the bottom line...which very likely is their strategy in the first place.
