Manning pissed about being smeared and slandered
« on: April 20, 2017, 12:20:33 PM »
I can't blame him.  He has nearly a decade and a half of a sterling record as a citizen and QB for the NY Giants and some of the jackals in the media turned on him like rabid weasels.

There haven't been many times Eli Manning has shown his emotions publicly in his career. This press conference is definitely in the Top 5.

Yeah, and here's a "tweet" from me....     /sarcasm/

Some of Eli's supposed fans didn't behave much better than the media...

.... seems like some people are always ready to jump on a guy in a glorious display their sheer ignorance....

Eli Manning on memorabilia charges: "I will say I have never done what I've been accused of doing. I have no reason to do anything of that nature. I've done nothing wrong and I have nothing to hide. I know when this is done, everyone will see it the same way.....When you are attacking my integrity, definitely makes me angry...My track record with how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY 2004 speaks for itself. Do everything with class. That is what I have done and it's been attacked now....It will all work out. When it all does, I'll be cleared of this and everyone will see I've done nothing wrong....My track record speaks for itself."

I don't blame him. He has an impeccable reputation and has demonstrated nothing less than fine character, honor and integrity.
"There is a greater purpose...that purpose is team. Winning, losing, playing hard, playing well, doing it for each other, winning the right way, winning the right way is a very important thing to me... Championships are won by teams who love one another, who respect one another, and play for and support one another."

Absolutely, I was always taught that you can't stop people from making false accusations against you, but your reputation is your shield.   Eli had earned a very solid shield.   Yet it didn't stop a$$h*les like PFT's Mike Florio and the beat writers from the NY Post from pushing a narrative that Eli was guilty of all sorts of nefarious and possibly criminal deeds.   They were even speculating about what the Giants would do when Eli got suspended.

Why does he feel the need to sell memorabilia when he's making 20 million dollars per year?

The "industry" is loaded with fakes and shady criminal types.  Why associate yourself with this type of enterprise?

Go to bed with dogs and you wake up with fleas.

Bad judgement Eli.

Can't say for certain, but if I had to guess I would say it was on advice from his agent.

The key phrase in Eli's quote....  I have no reason to do anything of that nature.

Think about it.   Is there a scarcity of Eli Manning game-worn equipment? 

Absent a scarcity, there is no reason for not giving authentic merchandise to the memorabilia-sellers.

Great minds think alike.

So do ours, apparently, because I was about to express that exact same hope.
I'd rather be a disappointed optimist than a vindicated pessimist

There's a lotta information floating around. I'll Reserve judgment until all the facts are in.
This past weekend one of my Posse informed me that there's photographic evidence proving the helmets are not game authentic gear. Some sort of detail is absent from the helmets that were sold, as opposed to the helmets worn in a game. That's just what I heard, so take it with a grain of salt.
