Yeah the Svrugla story had to come straight from Werth or at least part of it.
I don't think the confrontation story was from him. didn't sound like a "you know what really ticked me off, there was this time . . ."  The detail about not having been told he would be given the day off may have come from him, or he may have talked to a teammate, but the rest of the stuff of pulling the line up card down and confronting Williams was out in front of the rest of the team.

Most of us agree that Williams blew at least one of those games up in New York but a good team bounces back after that.[...]

In a larger sense, it seems to me that in recent years this team has become surprisingly non-resilient.
