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.
You're moving goalposts, Hankie.

We have moved past the need for some economic changes. The PA accepted that on their own, and even got the league to up its RS and add a special targeted assistance fund.

What more is needed? I said addressing the variance issue should resolve anything and everything that all teams need right now to have a good footing. You don't need to restrict player rights. They should get some ability to control their own destinies above and beyond the league's required economic changes.
