Our super secret Eagles tipster, who’s been right on insidery stuff before, sent me this email immediately after the post about Jason La Canfora’s report that Chip Kelly ruined Jeffrey Lurie’s annual holiday party:
The holiday party report is such utter horseshit, I can’t believe Jason even ran with that.
For as long as I can remember the holiday party ALWAYS falls on a Friday. Additionally, it has been on-site at LFF for close to 10 years now. The party was never going to be on a Monday, and it was always going to remain on-site.
To add on further – Jeff has zero input on this party, his assistants do all the planning, he’s just told when to show up. Also, Aramark who caters the party throws it close to for free as a “thank you” to the Eagles being their exclusive in-stadium service partner. Also an interesting side note – everyone who attends the party is allowed to bring a date, with the exception of the cheerleaders.
Do with that what you will.
Does have a good point. Holiday party was alway on Friday. https://t.co/YaTcUhbLaf

UPDATE: Got some others saying there was some unhappiness, among employees, over something with the party this year, but perhaps not to the sensational extent La Canfora’s report would have you believe.
