Lurie retains full authority over Eagles, post-divorce

Jeffrey Lurie AP

Yes, the Page Six of the New York Post was accurate when it reported that the divorce of Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and wife Christina has been settled.  No, Page Six wasn’t entirely accurate when reporting on the piece of the team Christina will own going forward.

Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that it’s not a “sizable chunk” but a small, non-voting share.

Jeffrey Lurie will be the only person with voting stock or management authority, and he will continue to hold a “far greater percentage” of the team than most owners do of their respective teams.

Under league rules, as little as 30 percent can be held by one family.  There has been some discussion about dropping the minimum to 25 percent.

    It’s a mystery why anyone would be proud to own that second rate franchise brother.

    Maybe now since she is out of the picture we can go back to kelly green. The logo of the eagle with its wings spread flying holding the ball is soooo much better then the current late 90′s over modernized eagle head. Please please Jeff if give us the kelly green back!!!

    Not really up to Lurie — NFL Properties controls all colors, logos, and emblems. If dark green “markets” better than Kelly green, it doesn’t much matter what the owner wants.

    No they arent controled by the league. The team needs to submit a proposal to change them. As far as matketabilitly the dark green is stale n ugly. Think Philly is a huge football market. Every Eagles fan in the greater deleware valley would be going out to buy their new kelly green apperal. The team colors were changed by the Lurie ownership group in which Christina was the head of.

    I personally heard Jeffrey call Kelly green a “has-been color”. His largest agenda when acquiring the team was re-branding.
