Eli Manning: "I've done nothing wrong"

  • Ex-Giant Antonio Pierce comes to defense of Eli Manning

But speaking to reporters on Thursday, Manning said he was "angry" amid allegations that he defrauded sports collectors by passing off equipment he didn't wear in games as "game-used" memorabilia. "My track record of how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY since 2004 speaks for itself".

Steiner said in a Facebook Live video Tuesday afternoon that Manning is "someone I would say I trust my children with". "I have no reason, nor have I ever had any reason to do anything of that nature", Manning said during a session with media.

Recently, the CEO of Steiner Sports, Brandon Steiner, had Manning's back, saying that he's "someone I would say I trust my children with". He refused to answer specific questions because the lawsuit is pending.

As for whether the Giants were involved in the alleged scam, Manning was slightly less emphatic but also said he believes in the team and everyone in the organization. I'm not a runner - you've seen me with Ray Rice, you've seen me with a lot of other players, guys that have been with us. "I think my track record of how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY, since 2004, speaks for itself". One of the suit's plaintiff's, Michael Jakab, said he paid $4,300 for a helmet said to be worn by Manning during the team's 2007 Super Bowl season.

"I have done everything the right way and have been a standup citizen and obviously you get- someone starts something up and everybody turns against you very quickly, it hurts a little bit". "I owed Steiner jerseys - I did not receive any benefits from that and that was just part of my agreement, but I never personally sold or made any money off a jersey or helmet".

Manning, who is scheduled to earn nearly $20 million in salary and bonuses this season, was asked why he had a contract with a memorabilia dealer when he made so much money on the field.
