Bucs GM Jason Licht doesn’t think Tom Brady should apologize for throwing the Lombardi Trophy during the team’s Championship parade on Tuesday.

On Saturday, Lorraine Grohs, the daughter of Greg Grohs who was the master silversmith behind the first Vince Lombardi Trophy, demanded Brady apologize for disrespecting her father’s legacy.

It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football,” said Lorraine Grohs. Grohs is the daughter of Greg Grohs, the master silversmith at Tiffany and Company from 1967 to 1994, who crafted the very first Vince Lombardi Trophy.

“I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father and it’s such an honor and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany’s and it takes a lot of hard work,”

“I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans the other team players.”

Licht saw Grohs’ interview and wants her to lighten up.
