There are lots of ways to meet in the middle, but the union has to get over this idea that every penny of every current contract gets paid on time and without escrow regardless of how much HRR grows. (Hell, they didn't even have that under the old deal!)

Fixed dollar amount or a fixed percentage of growth beginning from the current base are non-starters. The PA needs to move towards the owners with a deal that meets them in the middle. Plenty of options:

- The old system, but with gradually declining splits
- Make-whole paid back over time exceeding the cap by a fixed % until such time as all deals are "back on schedule" under the cap
- Capped escrow
- The PA's "proposal 3", but at something like 7% as opposed to 13%
