Is an 7 year deal really that much different than a 5 year deal? Not many players have a 7 year deal anyways.

And as far as backloaded contracts goes, just inform the owners how it hurts the game and why they shouldn't do it. Then we'll see how much the owners care about the game.
Please don't use this argument as it is bs. The players have shown to care about the game as much as the owners. Why the owners want a 5 deal I have no idea just make it 7 and it would be all fine.
