i never considered that. why are you talking to her on the phone instead of buying a plane ticket while she's dying of cancer



IIRC, he said that she insisted that he not miss a game because of her... I guess he took that to mean CoD & Madden also...

I'd put this up there with creating a fake charity to help sick kids and keeping all the money for yourself...


Reminds me of this, but 1000x worse:

Good grief, this is the NFL we are talking about. If you can play, someone will give you a chance. Everyone was afraid to pick Burfict, and he quickly became a starter on a playoff team. Te'O's draft stock will fall even further than it was already, but if he is as good as some people think he is, his career will be fine.


This isn't the same kind of story as Burfict.

Look up what happened to Tony Washington.

Even if he is homosexual...I mean does it really matter...? And if he wanted to keep it a secret I don't understand why he would create this elaborate illusion for the entire country..you could always just keep your mouth shut?...manti you had a great season...if you're gay whatever, but why do this to yourself...makes no sense.

This isn't the same kind of story as Washington, either. Washington was not this high level of a prospect anyway.

Whatever the media dishes out is nothing compared to his family and church if he comes out as a gay Mormon.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say his magic underpants won't save him in this situation...

Guns... check

Fire... check

Saving face after making up a sob-story girlfriend... on your own, dude...

Washington was on the rise after a strong combine performance. Te'o is coming off a lousy bowl game and will face questions about how sympathy for his story may have inflated his stock.

More to the point, like Washington, Teo's story will come with a huge amount of publicity, all negative. He'll also have the colossal stigma of being the guy who lied about a dead girlfriend which means media scrutiny wherever he goes.

Any GM that looks at him is going to have to believe he's such a phenomenal player that it'd be worth the circus that's bound to follow him.

I have my doubts that he's actually that good.

"They started out as just friends," Te'o's father, Brian, told the Tribune in October 2012. "Every once in a while, she would travel to Hawaii, and that happened to be the time Manti was home, so he would meet with her there."


And it was around this time that Manti and his father began filling in details about the linebacker's relationship with Lennay. Brian Te'o told multiple reporters that the family had never met Kekua; the Te'os were supposed to spend time with her when they visited South Bend, Ind., for Notre Dame's Senior Day on Nov. 17.


So despite her visiting Hawaii multiple times, he never introduced her to his family?

I don't know if this is fuged up, but I kind of want him to be gay, just to see the interesting stories/conversations/debate that comes of it. It'd be better then all the constant shitty The Golden Calf of Bristol/lebron stories.

i'd rather the first high profile gay NFL player not be such a strange lying weirdo.
