If smart businessmen which the Owners claim to be, believe there is too much risk for themselves in long-term deals than it doesn't take a CBA legislation to prevent them but rather good business sense to not offer them.

Owners are not forced to offer longer deals even if they're allowed, if they chose not to, based on internal policies and practices.
