Why would this kid waste that kind of talent in the nfl anyway? Leonardo decaprio could sure use him as a supporting actor in his next film.

If he was a good actor people would believe him... maybe a pitch man?

TMZ involvment solidifies the "circus" status :lol:

Gotta feel sorry for the women whose pictures were used in this mess. They had no part in this weirdness and likely wouldn't want to be dragged into the national spotlight as part of something like this.

Want yet another layer?

According to Pat Forde, Notre Dame officials knew, but kept it quiet.

Sources: Manti Te'o's representatives passed on chance to release story about fictional girlfriend

Someone came up with the hypothesis that this started because he was gay, the story started to collapse, ND came up with the "cat fishing" angle & convinced him to go along with it.

The saddest outcome of this is that he's a socially awkward kid who really was duped, & due to his being embarrassed tried to hide it.

I think the TMZ article helps show Manti may not have been behind Lennay.

However, my opinion still stands the same. Manti didn't know she was fake but took advantage of the situation in order to gain publicity from the media. Someone was playing him while he was playing us.

Teammates opinion was that he was duped at first, but even after he knew he continued to lie about it for the attention.

I got a feeling we have a better chance of finding Jimmy Hoffa then we do the full story here.

Once this Lance Armstrong interview is aired, this Te'o thing will go away as long as he keeps his mouth shut. If I were Te'o I wouldn't speak again until someone put a gun to my head.

Yeah, either that or why come clean about it and make himself look like an idiot.
