Giants GM: We’ll likely ‘keep moving’ with Eli Manning
We’re going to work our fannies off and get it fixed.
That’s how New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman ended his introductory news conference Friday after talking for more than a half an hour about plans to come in here every day and kick ass for the 2-13 team.
No. 1, who doesn’t want a lot of money? Everybody wants a lot of money, guys, Gettleman said. Obviously, I don’t know Odell [Beckham], never met him. I’m looking forward to it. Obviously he’s an extremely talented kid and makes stuff happen.
This is a big boy league, Gettleman said. You’ve got to put your big boy pants on. If the player’s upset, so be it.
Gettleman obviously impressed Mara and co-owner Steve Tisch during his first run in New York before he left to be the Panthers’ general manager. Time will tell whether he’ll help guide the Giants to relevance next season.
Consistent with the support we have provided in the past for special events such as the Super Bowl, the FBI will conduct name checks as requested using personally identifiable information, an FBI spokesperson said in an emailed statement. We seek to do this in a manner which is efficient and effective, yet minimally intrusive. Identification of race is not required to complete these checks, and we are working to reduce any confusion about this issue.
Applicants may select American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Black, Unknown, or White, including Hispanic in the race field.
Racial identification is crucial for sight identification for law enforcement personnel, said James J. Wedick, a retired FBI agent of three decades and security consultant. Large event venues increasingly are asking for racial identification in recent years, but most of the time, providing that information is optional.
