Who’s mans is this?!
Eli Manning is in big trouble and it’s for a reason you might not expect.
The New York Giants quarterback is being sued for allegedly selling what buyers thought were game-used helmets, but they were not.
According to the Daily News:
The Giants, who have handed over emails dating back to 2003, withheld the bombshell exchange, but Manning turned it over last week, according to the paperwork.
“Eli Manning, to his credit, he and his lawyers did produce this email, that is the basis for the newest bit of what is going on,” Brian Brook, the attorney for the plaintiffs in the suit, told the Daily News on Thursday.
Manning’s email followed an April 27, 2010, request from his marketing agent, Alan Zucker, who asked if he could drum up “2 game used helmets and 2 game used jerseys.” Skiba emailed Manning later the same day.
“Let me know what your(sic) looking for I’ll try to get something down for you,” he wrote. “2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli,” Manning responded.
Minutes later he replied to Zucker, writing: “Should be able to get them for tomorrow.” Manning’s reps have denied any wrongdoing, adding that the plaintiffs are just looking to score cash.

This isn’t the first time they have heard from these allegations. They heard about this in 2014. Also in March when it was claimed that the Giants gave Michael Strahan a jersey that he thought was worn during Super Bowl XLII.
We’ll give you more information when it becomes available.
