JEFFREY LURIE, who produced movies in L.A., including "V.I. Warshawski," met with John Shaw a little more than a decade ago to talk football. Yes, that John Shaw, the man who engineered the Rams' departure from Anaheim to St. Louis on behalf of Georgia Frontiere.
It was Shaw who "found" Lurie for Norman Braman, who was trying to sell the Philadelphia Eagles. Lurie had failed earlier in a bid to buy the New England Patriots, of all teams, but Braman accepted Lurie's offer of $195 million to buy the Eagles in 1994.
