Eli Manning insists he did nothing wrong in memorabilia suit

Adjust Comment Print

I have done nothing wrong, and I have nothing to hide, and I know that when this is all done everybody will see it the same way. When Eli Manning walks into your office and he says 'these are my game-used items, ' then I'd like to think that I can believe that...

"I will say, that I've never done what I've been accused of doing".

The quarterback said that his track record speaks for itself and said that he was angry that people have "turned" on him because of the allegations leveled in the suit.

Manning has spoken up regarding accusations that he profited from false memorabilia in an interview with the NY media on Thursday. "This was first reported three years ago". "I think my track record of how I handled myself since I've been here in NY since 2004 speaks for itself. I've tried to do everything with class and be a standup citizen, and that is what I have done and that is being attacked right now".

Whether this damages Manning's reputation remains to be seen, but these claims present an unwelcome distraction for the Giants, who have gone all-in as far as setting themselves up for a Super Bowl run in the twilight of Manning's career. "We're going to do everything we can to support those players when the waters get a little rocky".

".Someone starts something up and everybody turns against you very quickly", Manning said. That is what I have done and it's been attacked now....

The lawsuit claims the email is evidence the quarterback attempted to falsify the nature of the equipment given to Steiner Sports as part of a memorabilia contract, according to the New York Post. He said has never personally sold or made any money off a jersey or helmet sale.
