Giants players, sick of boat talk, reportedly trashed an airplane instead

We already knew Odell Beckham Jr. wasn’t taking the Giants’ 38-13 Wild Card loss to the Packers well. Turns out he wasn’t the only New York player making a mess.

United Airlines was forced to postpone a flight to London by more than three hours Monday morning, reportedly as a result of crews having to clean up the mess the Giants left behind after their flight from Green Bay to Newark. UA Flight 934 was delayed from a scheduled 8:30 a.m. ET departure to 11:47 as crews scrambled to prep the cabin for a trans-Atlantic flight. While the company officially chalked the postponement up to “operational difficulties,” passengers waiting to board the airplane the team had left behind heard a different story.

Mark Kropf went into detail about his experience on the flight with the New York Post Monday afternoon.

“The pilot came out and asked for everyone’s patience, and shared where the plane came from and that the plane needed extra help repairing and cleaning the interior,” he told Sophia Rosenbaum and Bruce Golding.

“Another 30 minutes passed and the gate agent told us it was the Giants that destroyed the biz class cabin, and we saw service personnel walking countless seat cushions off the plane.

“Upon entering the business class cabin, the cleaning scent only partially masked the alcohol smell. I had popcorn, chewing tobacco and other food crumbs on my seat.”

Kropf wasn’t the only delayed passenger to voice his displeasure with the New York Football Giants.

There’s no word yet on whether or not this most recent Giants disappointment can be blamed on a boat trip.
