Manti Te'o lied about his Girlfriend dying

548 posts in this topic

Sorry, but I don't buy for a second that he got "tricked". At worst he was in on it, and at best he HAD to have suspected that something wasn't right.

Exactly... the odds of him being that articulate with words while being computer illiterate are pretty much nil in my generation. He was in on it, but got lucky that hes got a team of lawyers and whatnot concocting a strange-but-believable story.

I can't believe people are so blind to this. When is someone going to ask him if he's gay? It's the classic story of a closeted gay man making up the out of town girlfriend to get some suspicious people off his back. You can't be openly gay and win the Heisman, or be an NFL star. That's at the root of this whole story.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he and Roniah Tuiasosopo were lovers and came up with this story together to hide their relationship. It's the only reasonable explanation to this bizarre story.

Bottom line: He is now pretty much worthless as a character witness, but as a football player, he is as good as he ever was.

Te'o 's story is still to confusing to believe. He's come out and said he lied after he found out his girlfriend wasn't dead. Yet we also know he lied about meeting her. With all these lies that were going on for so long (that he set up meeting arrangements yet she never showed for any of them), surely he would have suspected this person wasn't real. To be duped for so long, for possibly three years, is a little too hard to believe.

He would have to pull off some twighlight zone type stuff for him to be completely innocent of this event. Yet let's say he is for innocent for the moment. Wouldn't it be funny if Manti and Dianne (the girl in the photos) got together after all this. :lol:

I do still question who WAS the woman he was actually talking to... If it was a woman. They say they've reviewed phone records and all of that, and it showed he did speak with someone regularly. But, wouldn't the woman who posed as Lennay have came out by now?

How awesome would that be if someone hooked them up, lol. He would definitely get the last laugh b/c she is pretty hot.
