The problem is they would all have to never offer any other deal. If even one were to gain an advantage from breaking this unwritten rule every owner would do it or the fans would be upset that the team wasn't trying. Once a team that was "cheating" does well the damn would open. Look at back diving contracts. First there was one then another then the Kovy thing. If it isn't against the rules someone will figure out how to use it to gain an advantage.
