Eli Manning insists he did nothing wrong in memorabilia suit

Eli Manning insists he did nothing wrong in memorabilia suit

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.

The email, obtained this week by the New York Post, shows an April 27, 2010 exchange between Manning and Giants head equipment manager Joe Skiba.

"I have never done what I've been accused of doing", Manning said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. "I have no reason nor have I ever had a reason to do anything of that nature".

"When Eli Manning walks into your office and he says, 'These are my game-used items, ' I'd like to think that I can believe that", Steiner said.

Manning said he can handle people attacking him for his play. Two signed helmets sold by team employees claiming to be "game-used" by Manning apparently were never used in a game.

The allegations remained mostly dormant until last week when Kaja Whitehouse and Bruce Golding of the New York Post unearthed a potential "smoking-gun email" within the court documents. "The email predates any litigation, and there was no legal obligation to store it on the Giants server. And I know that when this is all done, everybody will see it the same way". "Eli Manning is well known for his integrity and this is just the latest misguided attempt to defame his character". "I have tried to do everything with class and be a standup citizen".

The Giants were accused in an ongoing 2014 civil-racketeering lawsuit of creating fake game-worn football gear to pass off as the real deal to make money from collectors and fans over the years.

"I have talked to Peyton about things going on", he said. The case is set to go to trial in September.
