Instead of limiting to your pick being no higher than 7th, if the total of your picks over a three year span fails to equal 9, you are penalized two places in the draft order. So if you win 1st, 1st, and 2nd. Your third pick is only pushed back to 4th rather than 7th. My thinking here is that it's a little easier to administrate since it's a set penalty each time rather than having to do the math.
You still have to do the math here to check if the sum is less than 9. Not that a little math is a problem, but you're not avoiding it with this method.
