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.
What goalposts have been moved?

The end result is still aimed economic success for the league and its owners.

Contract terms are a part of that.

You didn't address my concerns with long term deals at all. How is paying Joe Blow $7M a year for 15 years good for the game, and the revenue of the league? What happens when Joe Blow busts his knee and can't play at that high level again, yet doesn't retire. Is paying him $7M a year for the next 14 years good for anybody, besides that player?

You want no restrictions on contract length, then you have to get rid of guaranteed contracts.
