And the dude deserves it
The one good thing to come out of this bizarre week  
mfsd : 12/5/2017 10:05 pm : link
is the outpouring of respect for Eli
Except  
Jolly Blue Giant : 12/5/2017 10:14 pm : link
They donít introduce players anymore.
Really looking forward  
redwhiteandbigblue : 12/5/2017 10:37 pm : link
to being there. Everyone attending should wear an Eli jersey.
They won't have to.  
redwhiteandbigblue : 12/5/2017 10:39 pm : link
When Eli come on to the field for his first series the place will rock!
Someone please tell Pat Hanlon  
18E : 12/5/2017 10:41 pm : link
Change up the intro......announce the offense. Place will go apeshit!
Mara played this one beautifully

Took his total fuck up and turned it into a profit.

At least thatís how I see it. Made a December game in a season where they are 2-10 in to a must be at game. Hats off. Guy learned a thing or two in business school.
Problem  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 12/5/2017 11:32 pm : link
is I think half the Giants season ticket holders sold their tickets to Dallas fans.

I think you are giving him too much credit. After all, McAdoo was his guy and that was just a colossal misjudgment that basically wasted several years of Eli's prime.
39 degrees for the game on sunday  
Ten Ton Hammer : 12/6/2017 12:31 am : link
and the team is 2-10. Fully prepared to see a stadium that's 75% cowboys fans and 25% empty seats
Yeah, the best moment in the game  
exiled : 12/6/2017 5:51 am : link
will happen before it actually starts.

Exactly how is he turning a profit on this?
The stadium was already sold out.
You guys love making shit up.
Yes, it will feel good for about 2 minutes  
Jimmy Googs : 12/6/2017 6:59 am : link
until Eli gets sacked on the first 3rd down play he tries to pass when one of his own lineman bumps into him...

One distinct example is the owners get a percentage of jersey sales. Before Ben fumbled the situation, Eli was at the bottom of the Top 50 jersey sales. Just in the week, he now sits at No. 29 out of the Top 50. The Giants, NFL, and Eli all profited just from jersey sales. Seems like a small example, but it is a tremendous amount of sales to move that far up in the rankings in just 1 week. Again, it's not that they are flush in cash from jersey sales, but you just asked for an example in how they are profiting.
I will be there  
Giants86 : 12/6/2017 7:50 am : link
can't wait. Go figure. Well played Giants.
I bought a ticket Monday  
GiantTuff1 : 12/6/2017 7:56 am : link
since tickets were dirt cheap and I knew I was either going to boo McAdoo WWE style or cheer Eli... So happy itís the latter.

We will be bringing the heat, very excited.

How am I making shit up? That stadium wasnít going to be full. Now by all counts it is.

Thanks for the example, but this can't be much money at all.

ZogZerg : 12/6/2017 8:02 am : link
You have no idea whether the stadium would be full or not. Fans would have gone just to boo the shit out of McApoo.
Or, sold tickets to cowboy fans.

I'm pretty sure they share evenly across all teams for jersey sales. So the Giants make as much on the sale of a Carson Wentz jersey as they do on the sale of an Eli Manning jersey.

Obviously, the total volume of sales for Eli jerseys had to have surged, as you note, but that went into the pockets of all the owners, not just Mara and Tisch.

True (as did I), but I think even Dallas would give him a standing ovation.

To quote Parcells: "They hate us so much, they like us"....LOL
