The minute-long ad … featured multiple NFL players, including Giants quarterback Eli Manning. …

But when reminded Friday of his involvement in the PSAs, and asked for his reaction to the fact Mara said Thursday in a radio interview that kicker Josh Brown admitted to the organization he abused his wife, but was still re-signed and retained as a team employee, Manning, a team captain, said he could not offer much comment.

“I saw some new information that was revealed. I didn’t read into what exactly it was, so I’m probably not up to speed on everything,” Manning said. “Right there, you support your teammates, but also support the decision of the organization.

“Again, I’m not aware of what ownership said or any of the announcements. My focus this week has been getting ready for the Rams. Obviously, I don’t know what went on behind the scenes, all I can do is support my teammates and support the organization.”

This a really alarming. Eli Manning, the star of an NFL-sponsored public relations ploy service announcement decrying violence against women, takes a pass when it comes to actually commenting on actual domestic violence actually committed by his actual teammate. That champion of female empowerment, can’t be bothered to offer an opinion on the fact that his own kicker ignored his “NO MORE” campaign and his organization enabled the football- and spouse-kicking monster Josh Brown with coverups and contract extensions.

Of course, you’ve probably heard all about Manning’s non-comments by now. The nationwide shock and outrage over his silence on the matter has been echoing all across the country. From sea to shining sea, America has stood up in anger and shouted out with one voice that Eli Manning is a hypocrite for passing up the chance to denounce his teammate, his owner, and the NFL for this scandal.

No, wait. That didn’t happen. I’m sorry, I’ve got this mixed up. It’s Tom Brady that’s taking the heat. That’s it. Brady is the one being ripped in places like USA Today for being insufficiently furious at the league for their handling of Josh Brown. He called domestic violence a tragedy. Said he has no tolerance for bullies who abuse vulnerable people. But when he talked about how when it comes to disciplining players, he stays in his lane. And for that, he was put at the top of the national media’s Most Wanted List.

But when Eli Manning feigns ignorance and says he’s just focusing on the Rams game? And actually uses the words “support my teammates”? At a time like this? Crickets.

Congratulations, Roger Goodell. You have created a league where only person who loses in the court of public opinion not only hasn’t done anything wrong, he’s your best player. How about you throw money into a phony, insincere public service ad to stop that?

You can count me among what I think is the majority of Red Sox fans who are pulling for Cleveland to win the World Series. Mainly because of Terry Francona. But also for Boston connection guys like Andrew Miller and Coco Crisp. And especially for me, Mike Napoli. First of all, he won a ring here. But also because I met him once at a party thrown by a mutual friend. Well, now that I find out who he’s dating, I respect Nap more than ever.

Boston? Meet Sophia Phalen. Nashville, Tennessee native. Belmont University nursing student. Baseball WAG. Any man capable of making Ms. Phalen fall in love with him, deserves a second ring. And a dozen more after that.

Bryan Curtis of The Ringer has posted a long, in depth profile of Chris “The Father of Deflategate Misinformation” Mortensen, talking about his life, his career, his battle with cancer and of course, Deflategate itself.

There’s a lot to unpack here. But let’s start with the aftermath of Mortensen’s infamous tweet saying 11 of the Patriots 12 footballs in the AFC title game were tested at two pounds per square under the minimum:

After the tweet, a second source, with whom Mort had a better relationship, urged him to adopt a broader description: that the balls were merely “significantly underinflated.” In that tweezers-sized distinction, you could see a preview of the madness that would become Deflategate. Mort told me, “That should have raised the journalist in me to a higher level. I’ve got to ask some more questions here. What are we talking about, 2 pounds under? But, no, I got to get on TV.” He had to be an insider.

In appearances on TV and radio, Mort said he immediately backtracked to the safer ground of “significantly underinflated.” But Mort’s January 20 tweet and story that contained the 2 pounds per square inch number remained uncorrected for more than six months . …

Mort’s cool began to melt only when he started to get a number of death threats. “What bothered me is we’re in an era where if your wife goes onto social media, she basically reads that they want you to die,” Mort said. “Even after I got cancer, I got some death wishes.”

The Mortensens live in Arkansas. But when Mort was working in Bristol, they often stayed in a house they leased in Connecticut. As the Deflategate threats began to pile up, Mort told Micki he didn’t want her traveling to Connecticut anymore. “My job is to protect her,” he said. When Mort himself came to Bristol, he behaved like someone who was living under a public threat. He went straight from the ESPN studio to his home, avoiding restaurants and rarely appearing in public.

Look, I want to be kind to Chris Mortensen since he’s going through the living hell that is cancer treatment. I say with all my heart that I’m rooting for him to crush this disease and die an old man in his bed surrounded by loved ones many, many years from now.

But facts are facts. Mortensen admits here that he knew the information he put out there was pure horsecrap. And he did nothing. Even saying the balls were “significantly underinflated” was a pure lie. For the better part of two years he’s perpetuated the lie, kept the fire burning and continued to throw fresh wood on it like the time he went on Arizona radio to make up a story about Mr. Kraft and Jonathan Kraft apologizing to him.

And now, after the fire of falsehoods has finally burned itself out, he’s trying to kick around the embers and claim he didn’t correct the fake story because he’d said it on television? Bull. One hundred percent, Grade A, USDA Choice bull.

Secondly, while we’re on the subject of lies, I have a question about these “death threats” he’s implying came from Patriots fans. Who issued them? When? What did they say exactly? What happened when he told the police?

I mean, you can’t just casually throw out there that “Yeah, I people from New England saying they were going to come kill me and my wife. I was a big enough deal that we rearranged our lives, stopped traveling, looked over our shoulders and lived in fear. But what are ya gonna do? That’s those wacky Pats fans for ya.” That’s a big claim. One that smears the fans of an entire region as deranged, homicidal lunatics and deserves verification. But this Bryan Curtis doesn’t ask for it and Mortensen doesn’t provide it.

Then again, when it comes to publishing lies that can’t be backed up with any proof whatsoever, no one has anything on Chris Mortensen. Get well soon, Mort. But for God’s sakes, quit making up stories.
