I'd like to see Roger Goodell comment on this matter come draft time.

Or at least give him an air high five and an air hug. To clown that punk on national TV.

I don't want Manti on any NFL team that I root for.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Didn't Te'o have 0 interceptions his previous 3 years? Seems like he lucksacked at least a few of them this year off deflections and such. Also, aren't barely half of his tackles solo, and he was often working behind a D line that was just superior to the opponent's O line? It just seems like inflated/overrated stats from circumstance this year to me. I think the big telltale thing will be his 40 time at the combine (Along with the other speed/agility drills). If he's slow, the speculation will start and he should fall.

This would be amazing. As for not wanting him in the NFL or society (This is mostly directed to the post you're quoting)? There are plenty of people in the NFL that have done worse or more criminal things than him. It's not like what he did was illegal/violent. Misleading or even possibly manipulating? Absolutely.

Definitely. See the Michigan game. One was literally thrown right to him.

So by that logic Teo was worse than Sandusky because Teo lied to millions while Sandasky only harmed a handful of people?

I can't seem to find the video, but someone has to know about the Chan Ho Park grooving one right to Cal Ripken Jr. in his final all star game.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Look I think we've all come to the conclusion that Te'o is a freak and a very weird dude. But if he has an excellent combine, it will be hard for GMs to pass him up. A marginal combine, however, and his draft stock will be in freefall.

Fair enough. I will say that any damages he did to anybody were miniscule, even if a large fraction of the country knew about the original story. The silver lining is that sports reporting will be a lot more accurate/fact checked now, rather than everybody running with sensational stories without checking them. I think most people, in the end, will have a decent laugh at how ridiculous this whole scenario has become.

Apparently Te'o will be interviewed on camera this week, with his parents, by Katie Couric.

I didn't know she was even working on TV anymore.

We all saw what she did to Sarah Palin. Te'o doomed imo.

Will he even do much at the combine? I would think he'd just do it at the ND pro day. He's training for the combine in Florida now and if his agent determines he is a marginal athlete he may do only interviews at the combine and not even get his weight taken till pro day.

Lol so mean and awesome. I feel like some anti-fan of whatever NFL team he goes to will be nonstop about this, like that one guy in Major League 2?
