    Court releases new emails in Manning lawsuit (via )

    "A series of emails released in court Wednesday suggest New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and equipment manager Joe Skiba did not plan to fraudulently represent fake memorabilia as authentic items.

    Manning is being sued by Steiner Sports for allegedly supplying the company with jerseys and equipment advertised as game-worn, when the items had never been used.

    The quarterback's attorneys claimed Saturday that the plaintiffs omitted "relevant evidence" and "cherry-picked" select emails to make it appear as if Manning indulged in fraudulent behavior."

    "Did you put my helmet somewhere?" Manning reportedly wrote in a 2012 email to equipment director and fellow defendant Joe Skiba shortly after Super Bowl XLVI — as one example of this recent filings' contents. "It was not in my locker. If you could hold onto it and my spare one as well, that would be great." Read more...

      This is at least vague as the crap that was previously released about this non issue. As Sharick has eloquently stated already, and I'm paraphrasing here: if you have a view on this based on what's been released, it's really just your personal opinion of Manning because there ain't enough evidence to have an informed view.
