I like the long term contracts. It's a taste of greed's medicine.

How is a GM doing his franchise a favour by signing a lifetime player? It hurts the fans and the franchise everytime and you'd have to be a fool to think otherwise.

Imagine watching a team who you'll know will have the exact same team for the next 10 years (minus a trade)? Now imagine that team sucked.... There goes that audience pretty quick. Nobody wants to watch a dumb team who's stuck with an expensive player for a lifetime.

Is it justified by a competitive edge? Sure, in the same way robbing a bank is justified as getting ahead in life. The consequences are blatant and those who take the risk deserve to reap them.
