After leaving the New York Giants practice facility Thursday following the team's latest day of organized team activities, Manning briefly met with the media to deny all the accusations against him.
Brandon Steiner, CEO of memorabilia dealer Steiner Sports, is defending Eli Manning, calling him "a guy I've trusted throughout (the) years, 100 percent". "My track record of how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY since 2004 speaks for itself".
"I will say that I've never done what I've been accused of doing", Manning said. "I have no reason nor have I ever had a reason to do anything of that nature".
Manning said he was unable to answer specifics of the case, but did say that he was bothered by attacks on his integrity. It included that email from Manning to a team equipment manager. "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".
Multiple emails then proved that "Manning was looking to give non-game-used helmets to Steiner to satisfy (fraudulently) his contractual obligation" with Steiner, according to the NY Post.
"I sign autographs like a lot of people do", Manning said. My track record with how I've handled myself since I've been here in NY 2004 speaks for itself.
"I have done everything the right way and have been a stand-up citizen and obviously you get - someone starts something up and everybody turns against you very quickly, it hurts a little bit", Manning said.
The two-time Super Bowl victor has a contract with Steiner Sports, a prominent sports memorabilia seller, but Manning said he would have no financial incentive by trying to pass along equipment that wasn't authentic. He said has never personally sold or made any money off a jersey or helmet sale. I've been dealing with it for a long time.
