It's like an obese person mandating that supermarkets only permit them to buy 1 "unhealthy" thing a week. If you DON'T want to eat more than that then DON'T eat more than that. If you don't WANT to sign players to terms longer than FIVE years then don't OFFER longer than that.
It's not that simple. As an owner who has some control over my GM, he may show some restraint by offering my star player a 5-year contract; but there is some idiot GM out there that has been told to do whatever to get my star player. And they will offer some ridiculous 15 year front loaded contract to take him away.

So I show some responsibility and as a result lose my star player. And for the player.. who wouldn't take the long term contract?
