The contracts are to protect the show, not the actors, and nowhere has that been more evident than with THIS show. The contract is mainly to keep the actor tied hand and foot to the show until the show decides they no longer need you. That's why we never relax when one of the actors renews their contract.

Ok maybe this is a stupid question but how is it possible that Melanie has a contract until 2011 when DAYS' contract runs out in March 2009??? That makes no sense.
Many others(including myself) have wondered that from time to time, but I guess its possible. Days typically gives people 3 year contracts, sometimes they only give them 1 year although it mostly depends on the show's short-term plans for them, although in recent years, most people never last their full 3 years but thats beside the point.
