PFT – Hiding in plain sight for more than three years, the civil suit against the Giants and quarterback Eli Manning alleging fraudulent memorabilia sales took on new significance on Thursday, via the report from the New York Post regarding an arguable smoking-gun email from Manning that the plaintiffs believe proves active involvement in a scheme to pass off helmets as game used when they weren’t.
At a time when plenty (including Chris Christie) have a lot to say about it, the NFL has nothing to say.
“We will decline comment,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy told Pro Football Talk by email on Friday evening.
No comment? Literally nothing to say at all? Well isn’t that convenient for the NFL. Good ol’ Roger does a solid for the Mara’s again. This may not directly violate in-game rules, but what about personal conduct policies? Because Mara is Rogers little lap dog, this goes completely untouched by the NFL. If this were Brady, every news outlet in the country would be covering this daily until justice served.
In the last 12 months the Giants have gotten caught letting their abusive punter continue to abuse wife in secrecy, headset gate, and now their QB has been accused of fraud.
Where is the outrage? Why are the giants not public enemy number 1 for the rest of NFL fans?
You mean to tell me that the NFL is fine wth this doofus passing memorabilia off as game worn while knowing that it wasn’t? On what planet does that make sense? On what planet does anything the NFL does make sense?
This league is so corrupt. I’m 100% convinced of it. This is shameful.
