The top is mostly old info, the bottom is something I hadn't thought of at all that kinda makes Te'o look pretty innocent.

The Hawaiians would spend a lot of time with mainlander American-Samoans, but there was still a difference and they were not on the same level as a Hawaiian.

Anyhow, I can believe that Manti was taken in hook, line, and sinker from the beginning given the fake was Mormon of Hawaiian descent.
That's good info. I wish ESPN would do a 2-hour segment on something like this instead of just repeating all of this ridiculous nonsense for that same two hours.

I'm so sick of this story.

Me too, but I'm not sure if I have time for an interview within the next few days.

Remember when Brent Musburger saying some hot girl was hot was the college football story? I bet T'e"o does.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

people, if you're doubting as to whether Te'o was in on it, i suggest that you re-read deadspin's original article. specifically the 2nd half

http://deadspin.com/5976517/manti-te...ason-is-a-hoax

they dig up different people who say that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo knew Manti in the flesh and blood for sure. Hell, the girl whose actually in the picture says that they know each other like family. Deadspin even has a picture of Tuiasosopo's little sister with Manti.

now ask yourself again if Manti knew.

I don't understand why I have to read the first article written, when many articles written since then are more up to date with information.

The guy that wrote that article you just referenced said himself that he didn't know whether Manti was in on it or not.

I don't even know what this means.

I edited above, but the guy that wrote the article you referenced said he didn't even know whether Manti was in on it or not. So you'll have to excuse me from reading it and coming to some kind of blanket decision.

What are you talking about? Deadspin comes to conclusions all the freaking time, as does every other reported in the world. They had enough information to decide his girlfriend didn't exist, but didn't have enough info to decide that he was in on it from the beginning. You can't just see that they didn't come to the same conclusion as you about something and decide that's the one thing they inherently expect us to decide for ourselves. Doesn't work like that.

The fact t-sop knew Manti makes it more likely (to me) that Manti was not in on it. T-sop was someone Manti trusted and T-sop was always there to run interference about why she wasn't able to meet with him, etc.

I see this as being exaggerated by Manti in that his contact with the gf was not as often or for as long as he said. Instead, T-sop and his buddies and cousins, probably would be hanging out, messing around and then someone would suggest they go for another session of cat fishing Manti while everyone's there.

For someone into pranking, Manti would be the mother load of pure gold

This is the exact opposite of what I'm arguing, nice try though?

In aggo world, I would go back to the very first article ever written about Spygate like 5 years ago and make decisions solely based on that article.

ZBT,

When Aggo makes a post in any thread, the best play is always to ignore it. Seriously.

Burke had an anonymous source that was 80% sure Teo was behind it. That's about what Dan Rather had with his fake Bush letter; and Rather rode like an A bomb from Dr Strangelove.

What needs to be resolved is the conflict between those that say Tuiasosopo and T'eo knew each other irl early on, and T'eo's interview yesterday where he claimed he didn't.
