East Gib gets some of blame. It is all spades. Should just bid 2. Has bunch of Q's and J's with opp showing values.

Too bad you weren't playing money bridge :D If you weren't convinced GIB bidding was broken before, this should nudge you in the right direction. 100% blame to East, 100% blame to West.

I may be mistaken but I think the point OP is trying to make is that 3 should not systemically have a minimum length of four in this sequence. If you look at the description of the double, it's for takeout and it shows spades and diamonds, not clubs. Systemically, a bid of 3 should show at least six.
