At least one NFL executive--and we’d guess there are more--are not happy with the lawyers involved in the barrage of suits being filed against the league in the wake of a seating debacle at Super Bowl XLV that forced around 800 fans to be moved from their scheduled seats and 400 to miss the game.
The NFL’s executive vice president for business operations Eric Grubman recently spoke out against these lawyers on ProFootballTalk Live, admonishing the group filing suits to maintain a bit of perspective.
"I wish they'd go off and work on something like world peace because I think we have to keep this in perspective," Grubman said, per the USA Today.
"We didn't provide a great experience to 100% of the fans. But keeping a little perspective is probably what I wish the lawyers would do."
Grubman, who cited the compensation deals offered to the fans affected by the NFL, says that the league wants a “second chance” with the fans.
Meanwhile, we’re just shocked that someone doesn’t think highly of lawyers.
