Eli Manning Involved in Giants Memorabilia Scheme, Used AOL Email

You hear that sound? It’s Patriots fans clamoring for Roger Goodell to drop the hammer on the Giants and Eli Manning after the NY Post reported that lovable goofball No. 10 played some role in a fake game-used memorabilia scheme.
Details from the report:

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was in on a scheme to sell phony game-worn gear — sending an email asking the team’s equipment manager for “helmets that can pass as game used,” according to blockbuster court papers obtained by The Post.
The legal filing also alleges that Big Blue failed to produce the smoking-gun request — sent from Manning’s old-school AOL account to an official NFL account — even though “they claim to have no document destruction policy.”

Yeah, I already don’t care about the fake helmets and jerseys because Eli using a goddamn AOL account to fire off emails is easily the best part of this story.
But if you’re out for Giants blood, here are some emails between Eli, agent Alan Zucker, and equipment manager Joe Skiba:

Manning’s email is contained in a pair of exchanges that allegedly began when his marketing agent, Alan Zucker, asked Manning to supply “2 game used helmets and 2 game used jerseys” as per the two-time Super Bowl MVP’s contract with memorabilia dealer Steiner Sports.

Eli to Skiba:

“2 helmets that can pass as game used. That is it. Eli,” Manning allegedly responded from his BlackBerry at 2:08 p.m.
At 2:25 p.m., Manning wrote back to Zucker, saying: “Should be able to get them for tomorrow.”

Interesting time for this story to break considering a pissed Brandon Jacobs recently took to IG to blast Skiba:
