Not only do the 7 day contracts not make sense, but I have some additiuonal problems with how other contracts are rationalized, specifically regarding which contract 'beats' another. I agree that it's ridiculous that a bare min two or three year deal trumps a one year deal. There simply aren't a lot of players who'd actually take a deal like that. I think that contract length, as a % multiplier to contract value, should probably only apply after a certain salary threshhold. Maybe something in the 2-3M range?
In order to keep things simple as possible, what if we said that the contract length only applies in the equation if you are bidding at least 25% of the max. That would mean players would shoot for the highest possible salary in offers under 5 million.
Or we could add these categories:
offers smaller than 12.5% of max-1 year(up to 2.5 mil)
12.5%-25% of max-1 or 2 years
