I guess I’d say, in the limited term, that it is unfortunate when disputes like this occur.”
“It’s not something that I assume [Broncos owner] Pat Bowlen — who I understood very well — would have wished, the Broncos intended a fantastic offer to him and his relatives. I assume, this 7 days, the best detail we can do is concentration on Pat and his contributions and his candidacy to turn into a new member of the Corridor of Fame,” Goodell finished.
It is value noting that even with Goodell talking about Bowlen in past tense, Bowlen is nevertheless alive.
But irrespective, Goodell’s reaction on Wednesday is a departure from what he’s stated ahead of about the ownership condition wherever he praised the perform of Joe Ellis and the board of trustees.
In October, Pat Bowlen’s brother, Invoice Bowlen, filed a lawsuit demanding that the trustees be taken off from ability. The trustees have because questioned the NFL to commence an arbitration process.
In a statement, Invoice Bowlen stated he agreed with the commissioner and that this weekend is about Pat Bowlen and the Corridor of Fame.
