Why remove Spear instead of changing it?

I mean, we want to get rid of its passive right? That's what makes some champions broken. So why they want to remove the whole thing and reduce the variety of bruiser items instead of changing its passive to something healthier? E.g. before it was introduced to rift its passive reduced some damage.
