It's not that they have any real problem with the level of the talent in the league. It's just that they want more of that talent on their own team and contraction is a fantasy that would create several talented FA's.
No one is saying that contraction WILL happen. They're saying that it SHOULD happen in order to fix the current problems. There are other ways but most arent viable long term solutions. They involve one side sacrificing a lot. So, please critique the reasoning why contraction wouldnt solve the economic problems.
