(ConservativeHub.com) – During ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” broadcast, New York Giants quarterback Tommy Devito’s agent Sean Stellato was featured on air over his clothing during the pregame warm-ups.
“ManningCast” host Eli Manning claimed he heard from some of his “boys” that during college, Stellato had gone by the nickname “Slimy.” Peyton Manning, the other host, laughed at this and called it “great research.”

However, Stellato did not appear to be too happy with those comments. During an appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer and Gio” show on Tuesday, December 12, Stellato disputed that this was a nickname he had ever used. He said he was not sure where that nickname had come from, and he had never heard of it before.
Stellato’s appearance on “Boomer and Gio” came after the Giants had a 24-22 victory against the Green Bay Packers, with DeVito leading the team to victory.
Stellato was at the pregame dressed in a black pinstripe suit with a black fedora and gold chain. As he stated on WFAN, he had first met Peyton Manning during the Pro Bowl, which he attended with his client Andrew DePaola.
In an appearance on FanDuel TV’s “Up and Adams” show with Kay Adams, Stellato pointed out that the one thing that he would never apologize for is his heritage. This past week, he was set to be inducted into the Italian-American Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago, where his heritage is going to link him with DeVito.
He said on WFAN that everyone would have comments, but he was proud to be representing his clients as best as he could, and so far he has had a great relationship with all of the teams that his clients have played for.
