Elisha Manning Doesnt Have "Time" For Non-Sense



Even though his conflict of interest with the adds on practice jerseys is probably because of his citizen watch deal i still give him kudos for fighting it as much as he possibly can. Jason B did a piece i believe a while back on how adds (patches/prints) were coming on practice jerseys soon as market revenue and i think its friggin redunkulous.  It's only a matter of time before we see alcohol and cig adds on them IMHO.

Eli Manning's practice jersey conundrum

Unstoppable. Eli Manning is. But so are the forces that bring together corporate money and sports. Thus, we have a conflict.

Eli endorses Citizen watches, but then the Giants went ahead and sold ad space on their practice jerseys to Timex. What's poor Eli to do? Does his personal deal with Citizen trump the team's deal with Timex? And what if he starts wearing a giant clock around his neck, like Flava Flav? Which brand does he wear then? Man, he's going to get everyone in trouble.

CNBC's Darren Rovell sheds some light.

Manning's jersey has the patch on it and news crews might be able to film the small patch – 3½ inches by 4½ inches - from afar, but for this practice and all future practices, Manning is not expected to give Timex much love due to his conflict of interest. We're told Manning will do interviews before practice in a t-shirt and will take off his pads for any interviews after practice.

Well, I'm glad we got that figured out. Eli Manning(notes) fans in need of a timepiece were about to get really confused.

Gracias, With Leather.
