Haslam ‘Comfortable’ W/ Position Regarding Pilot Flying J Scandal

NFL: Cleveland Browns-Rob Chudzinski Press Conference

The season is fast approaching, and there’s still many questions about owner Jimmy Haslam and all that is involved with his business – Pilot Flying J.

The company, owned by Haslam, is embroiled in an FBI’s investigation into a scam that has seen five employees plead guilty to defrauding trucking companies out of rebates.

Haslam says he’s “very comfortable with his personal position, Betsy Morris and Cameron McWhirter of the Wall Street Journal report.

“I really can’t worry about indictments because I have no control,” he says slowly. “My focus has got to be on fixing the problem with the companies [that are Pilot’s customers], making it right if we owe them something. I got to focus on what I can control.”

The NFL has stood by Jimmy Haslam, but Browns fans have posted panicky comments on sports blogs worrying that Mr. Haslam’s legal troubles might force him to sell the team—something Mr. Haslam says he has no intention of doing.
