Who would have ever thought that the Modell family would have more common sense than NFL commissioner Roger Goodell?
Tom Withers is tweeting the news,1 and says that the team will agree to the family’s wishes and had been planning to read a statement some time before the Eagles vs. Browns game. Withers also reports that Mike Holmgren had a conversation with David Modell, which seems to have preceded the request.
This is good news for everyone. Regardless of what different groups of fans might have wanted to do during the “tribute” it seems far more sensible not to put a moment like this on any kind of stage.
Now, about those home made signs…
