Two days ago it was reported that Eli Manning knowingly passed along helmets to Steiner Sports as ‘game worn’ while knowing they were not actually game worn.
The NY Post originally broke the story:

Eli’s representatives released a statement that Steiner was simply trying to defame the character of Eli.
Yesterday the NFL released a statement basically stating that they have no comment on the situation. No comment? really? This surprises me that a league that likes to spend millions of dollars on made up cases but neglects something that can criminally be punished.
This same sort of incident was in fact punished heavily back a few years ago.
In 2010, A marketing agent with ties to the New Orleans Saints was sentenced to eight months in prison for conspiring to scalp Super Bowl tickets and hawking fake “game-worn” jerseys.
Mike Orstein pleaded guilty in June to scalping conspiracy and selling jerseys with the false claim that NFL players had worn them in games. He agreed to surrender $350,000 made in the ventures from 1998 to 2006, including jerseys for the Browns and their home opponents.
Eli can’t get away with this. The NFL may not come for you, but the law should. I want this doofus locked up and I want him suspended because of it. It’s barbaric that the league has simply a ‘no comment’ on this.
Eli’s problem is, there is direct email proof that he knowingly sent helmets that he knew weren’t game worn. What a total fraud. Someone that makes millions of dollars a year robbing from his fans. Literally stealing money and lying right to their faces. Shameful.
