As a fan I'm fine with 100-year contracts if the variance is small enough to prevent cap circumvention,
but maybe the owners can only get insurance on 5-year max deals. I can see why they would want the insurance and would want 5 years to be the maximum term for a contract
I've been wondering about this, something I read somewhere. Maybe somebody who knows can clue me in on this (I'm reading through the threads, but I can only take so much before my eyes start to bleed).
My understanding was that insurance companies were now only willing to cover 5 years at a shot. Is this correct?
