I used the word vision instead of alternative view. My bad. Point is the same. And there is no way the owners sign off on what the players proposed today. Congrats to Fehr though, he's certainly winning the PR battle.
It's all PR nonsense. By calling the PA's offer a 'counter-proposal' it implies that the league is the one calling the shots here, and they just need the players to get in line.

When they call it an 'alternate view', now the onus is on the league to come up with another way of saying that they're not going to (let's be reality) deny, the PA's proposal.

(in essence, the league has to deal with giving a counter-proposal to the PA now, if they don't shape the media message.)
