Jeffrey Lurie may sell part of the Eagles

US1 Giants : 6/10/2024 1:16 pm
Was initially happy with the headline. However, it won't change control of the team. He is just looking for some cash.

Quote:
How much could having a minority owner affect fans?

Very little. Lurie would remain in control of the team. With no path to a controlling interest, a partial owner would have little impact on what fans see and experience. Minority owners don’t get to set ticket prices, draft players, or hire or fire the coach.

This guy is ready for a redemption story...  
Mike from Ohio : 6/10/2024 1:26 pm : link
Maybe Daniel Snyder  
johnnyb : 6/10/2024 1:28 pm : link
can buy back into the league.
I'm sure someone will give him double the money,  
widmerseyebrow : 6/10/2024 1:33 pm : link
draft picks, and a tug job if their trades are any indicator.
Do the voidable year contracts  
gersh : 6/10/2024 1:34 pm : link
mean he needs to come up with more upfront money?
Please NO!!!! Eli & Peyton!

I believe that's the general idea. It's bonus money which often is signing bonus...etc.

Also, maybe he's thinking the class action suit is going to land.
Hopefully it's either the DL  
SirLoinOfBeef : 6/10/2024 2:09 pm : link
or WR group...
This is good news

Their fans are the worst in the NFL, but they are also one of the best run organizations in football, from the top down.

Lurie is turning 73 this fall. Not super old, but also, he's not a spring chicken so change will come. They also lost Jake Rosenberg who was there for 12 years & was Howie's right hand man. The more change you add there, the better. The cracks were showing in the roster late last year as they got old and now have lost a big part of their leadership core to retirement. Siranni is a clown show who was buffered by a strong front office and roster, but as that decays little by little, the dam will break and that thing can collapse very quickly...think Dream Team starting in 2011 and then 4-12 in 2012.
Say what you want but the man knows how to own a football team

Stays busy with a young wife and a team-related pet passion project (green energy) and stays miles away from the actual football.
This is interesting

Normally, unless you need cash, you sell an investment when you think the value is near the peak. The NFLs shameless grab for every last cent has earned them a huge class action lawsuit, it's reasonable to wonder how long they can continue this before popularity declines. Maybe Lurie is the canary in the coal mine

A lot of people who follow the team would disagree with the staying away from the actual football part. He has been accused of meddling quite a bit, but it’s just not as public as other owners.

Lurie stays miles from the football? He probably meddles just as much if not more than Mara. They just win so he doesn't get shit for it.

Don't mess up the narrative with facts. A lot of people don't like that.

Hey Chris, it's been 25 yrs since I lived in the Philthy area, but from what I remember a lot of the local sports media people are team friendly fans; like a lot of Paul Dottino's. Do you think that has something to do with why Lurie's meddling isn't as public as it is with other owners?
It depends on which part of the team he wants to sell  
Milton : 6/11/2024 11:12 am : link
It could just be the special teams.
Sell it to the guy who got his ass kicked...

I think that is a reasonable theory. Much of the local media are definitely jock sniffers.

I know he's retired now, but Angelo Cataldi always called out the meddling. There was also a well documented athletic article at the end of the Doug Pederson era. Lurie/Roseman wanted to pick his coordinators if I recall correctly.
