It'll also be great for current players and potential signings as it highlights the long term vision and plan in place at this club. Everyone likes stability and it's nice to see that we have that in place. Much deserved credit has to go to Ashley for this as well. Fantastic news for everyone associated with the club.
I agree with this <ok>

Going to be an old man(30) by the time that runs out!

If things don't go to plan, I would not be surprised if Ashley didn't have to pay a large amount to sack Pardew + staff, there will probably be certain things in the contract covering Ashley.

I was thinking that.

There may be clauses that say they can be dismissed for X amount in year 1, X amount in year 2 etc on a decreasing figure as the years go by.

Nevertheless, it is a very positive step.

Is this length managerial contract of unheard of in worldwide football? I can't recall anyone else having such a long contract.

I've always been a fan of the 1 year rolling contract and think every club should adopt this.

Great news. I don't think it's much of a risk, Pardew has proven himself. He's bound to have a bad season in that time, everyone does, this means we're unlikely to sack him through a knee jerk reaction. We'll also get a shitload of cash if anyone tries to take him away, I could see the FA paying a ridiculous sum to pry him away if the England job came up again.

Has its upsides and downsides. The upside is a lack of commitment from either side, making it easy to sever ties if the relationship deteriorates, and that the manager has to really work to secure a contract renewal. The downside is that it essentially opens it up for a media free-for-all (as befell Guardiola for the last couple of seasons) speculating about the position.
