How the fug do you figure they are not related? Manti is accused of lying to the entire world for the past few months. Lance has lied to the entire world for at least the past 12 years.



one cheated. the other didnt. one saved lives and raised money. the other didnt. them lying is the only thing they have in common. in any scandal there are lies. does that make this and every scandal related? no

Per ESPN http://espn.go.com/c...apparently-hoax

"This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.
"To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating.
"It further pains me that the grief I felt and the sympathies expressed to me at the time of my grandmother's death in September were in any way deepened by what I believed to be another significant loss in my life.
"I am enormously grateful for the support of my family, friends and Notre Dame fans throughout this year. To think that I shared with them my happiness about my relationship and details that I thought to be true about her just makes me sick. I hope that people can understand how trying and confusing this whole experience has been.
"In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was.
"Fortunately, I have many wonderful things in my life, and I'm looking forward to putting this painful experience behind me as I focus on preparing for the NFL Draft."


So he had a virtual girlfriend?

This doesn't read like a guy trying to hide that he's gay.

It reads more like a young guy pulling a dumbass stunt that got out of control.


We also know that he linked the story with his grandmother. I'm wondering if he broke down about his grandmother's death, and this story was a way to cope. To the point he began to believe his own lie to a degree. In that case, he needs help.

Of course if all that is true, provided he receive help and such, this story won't hurt his draft stock, as far as draft stock is concerned.

LMAO @ THIS

https://twitter.com/...667906012524545

"Lennay" just tweeted Te'o. This is hilarious and sad at the same time.

And it is pretty much a guarantee Te'o knew about this. He told the media that they met in person for the first time after a game. There is no way he can get around that.

This guy is a joke.

With all this said about the theories as to why he lied or continued a lie, let's keep in mind not to discriminate against homosexuals.

If that does end up being the case, I think there will equal coverage given to the ramifications of him needing to do that as there is bashing him. I can understand making up a beard, a lot of people do it. The whole 'she died and coma and car crash" is nutso though.

This guy is a piece of crap he's BSing the whole thing hoping that statement will make everything go away in time... In the deadspin report it says he claimed to have met her in real life at a game or something and talked to her every night on the phone (when really the person behind the fake girls account was a guy named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo) and also, why wouldn't teo look into her death more since there were never any records of it?! Anyone who believes his story is clearly delusional.

I get what you're saying. But in my book if your entire life or inspiring story is based on a lie that you repeat over and over for personal gain, you are a complete tool and I will lump said tools in the same category.

All you can say is WOW. It amazing how the media will spin this. Only in America if your liked can the media put a positive spin on this B.S. It's one thing to lie on your dick to your boys but to the entire nation. Very sad. LOL. I can't wait to hear Mike Golic spend on this tomorrow on Mike & Mike tomorrow.
