It's not complicated.
Westgarth said this:
“We have gone a lot further than a great percentage of the membership has wanted us to go,” Westgarth said. “I don’t know how you look at our offer and say that we’ve been unreasonable.”
When you look at where the players were, where they owners asked them to go, and where they are now... Westgarth is right.
Their offer is so close to what the owners want, they've moved so far from where they were... that the only way you can believe the PA is being unreasonable is to believe that the PA should accept whatever the owners demand.
And if you believe that, then you lose your credibility in speaking about who is reasonable and who is not.
