In other words, Eli paid off someone to keep their mouth shut.

I don't think they wanted the spectacle that comes with this type of nonsense...

So you guys think Eli really did it? Its hard to believe that he could be mixed up in something so petty, given his income level.

I don't think so... I think the phrasing of the text could leave some suspicion which I think is why they settled.   Notice not a whole lot is made out of this by ESPN and the likes...  Glad it's over.

ESPN and sports talk are not covering it hardcore because I bet it is common place in the memorabilia industry and nothing good comes from messing it up

I wouldnt think so but the email they supposedly have of Eli saying to get something that passes for game used sounds pretty damning

Anyone other than Eli I would agree with you. I honestly think this is a case of overanalyzing a single sentence.

On a side note if you have $5000 lying around to drop on a damn helmet... something that isnt beneficial to you or your family in any way and you get scammed I have no sympathy for you. Put your money to better use.

Media not covering because he's a Manning...a good little white boy.

I'm not one to normally throw race into it, but if he were a black, scrambling QB who was known as an athlete as opposed to cerebral...rest assured it'd be covered fully til we were sick of hearing about it

it does, but sometimes the game worn stuff looks like new... maybe he just meant to give something that you could really tell was game worn.

Probably risky to go to trial hoping people believe that context

I dunno the whole Vick killing dogs thing came and went pretty fast the moment he starting throwing TDs again.

 

LT was a crack snorting, whore beater who the media never paid much attention too.

 

McNair was shot and killed by his side chick and instead of people talking about him cheating, etc it was "OH HE WAS SUCH A GOOD PERSON ON THE FIELD"
