Seriously what is he talking about, it has everything to do with money. Getting to UFA earlier gives players leverage to ask for more money. Having longer deals sure they might give up some earning potential, but in doing so they put all the risk on the owners end with these decade long contracts. Arbitration again gives the players leverage to be fairly compensated (or overpaid if you're Clarke MacArthur).
