I'm not an experienced negotiator but I don't understand why you would go into a negotiation and say that these two items are where we draw the line and dig in, when implementing one of the two gets the same result. Ooooooooh, I think I just answered my own question.
I would guess that the players that have gotten these huge 10 - 15 year deals are basically not even in discussion of signing with "lower tier" teams.
It seems only the big budget teams have offered FAs these long term front loaded contracts. If you put a limit on the term, more teams can compete for these game-changing FAs (on a "more" level playing field)
