Lurie divorce quickly, quietly settled


When word emerged out of the blue on July 4 that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and his wife, Christina, were divorcing, both parties took steps to emphasize that the team wouldn’t be affected.  Given the manner in which the McCourt divorce turned the Dodgers upside down, many Eagles fans opted for a wait-and-see approach.

They didn’t have to wait long.

The New York Post recently reported that a settlement has been reached, and that court papers could be filed as soon as next week.  Christina Lurie reportedly will emerge with “a sizable chunk” of the team.

Jeffrey Lurie purchased the Eagles in 1994.

    The Philadelphia Eagles are a pop-warner franchise and annoying fans brother.

    My understanding is that they have put the problem aside and have remained friends. Obviously financial issues had to be resolved, but I am also sure she will keep an active role with the franchise and Jeff has no problem with that. Correct me if I am wrong on the details.

    You want to talk about a team that has to come together to overcome and survive?

    It’s too bad that the Eagles and the Saints are both in the NFC……

    Can you imagine the story lines leading to the Super Bowl for the Eagles and Saints?

    For the record, it wasn’t Christina’s money. Jeffrey got his money from his mommy!

    I commend them both for a quick settlement. How many times do you this happen today? Most are ugly.

    Lurie looks like he’s been gobbling double cheese burgers and late night Taco Bell snacks with Andy Reid and the Ryan brothers.

    Note to self. No Craig stadler jokes about Andy Reid. Florio gets offended by them. He loves Reid and the eagles.
