When is enough enough?

Change the variance so that the circumvention cannot be done. We're done then, right?
Changing the variance will help out, definitely.

But to think that a CBA signed 7/8/9 years ago will remain relevant is naive. Economic conditions change: sponsors, dollar rates, etc.

The owners are looking for a system that helps out and contract lengths help. Signing Player A to a 15 year deal is awful for the game. What happens when Player A starts to perform more like Player B who gets paid 50% of what Player A makes?

How is that good for the game, the product and the overall revenue of the league?

Shorter deals mean only the players in their prime get the contracts they deserve. Nobody can predict the effectiveness of a certain player that far down the road.
