Eagles Owners Say Divorce Will Have "No Impact" On Ownership Of The Franchise
Published July 6, 2012
TO BE DETERMINED AT A LATER DATE: In Philadelphia, Les Bowen notes "generally in divorce proceedings, the wife gets a financial settlement, and it's far from clear whether Jeffrey Lurie has a huge chunk of money independent of his ownership" of the Eagles. He "certainly didn't have that when he bought the team" in '94. Falcons Owner Arthur Blank and his wife, Stephanie, "split last year." That parting "seems to have had no impact on Blank's ownership or management of the team." But Stephanie Blank "had no real role in the running of the Falcons, reports indicate" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 7/6).
