Just for the record, I actually think he's straight but just an idiot that tried to use this story to his benefit and the whole thing backfired on him.

But, honestly even if I didn't have the spoiler. The voice would be highly questionable to me, especially when I've never met the person. Never skyped, never seen her on webcam, did he get an extensive collection of pics? how many? etc. etc. The problem is all of these things are easily explained away without a way to prove otherwise. Unless someone feels like talking...

I bet there are girls out there who'd pay to roleplay being the girlfriend of a Notre Dame football player, let alone do it for free.


edit: now I'm caught up, and this post is dated.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

i actually sort of agree with nate

if he turns out to be gay and felt the need to go through all of this to cover it up, it would sort of ruin this story for me and just be kinda sad.

Katie: "He later called you, what did he say to you one the phone?"
Manti: "He just basically expressed and just explained what he did and why he did it, and.."
Katie: "Did he say why he did it"
Manti: "He didnt say why... he just explained that he wanted to help people"

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

I honestly believe that Manti is gay. Lets pretend he says "yes im a ****". There will be alot of NFL teams that would pass on him. Just my guess but i do not think NFL players would want an openly gay guy on the team. This would effect his draft pick status, maybe falling to the 2nd or 3rd rounds and not making as much money.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Strange as it may sound, the entire "Te'o is gay" hypothesis actually comes across as less likely now that I've heard these voicemails and learned that the speaker was reportedly Tuiasosopo in disguise. I finally heard the recordings (thanks to the link above). Those voices do not sound at all like an effeminate man, they sound like a woman. So if Te'o was truly attracted to whatever he heard on the other side, he was attracted to a woman. That we have since discovered the voice belonging to a man is irrelevant: in Te'o's head, he was talking to a female. So to me, it suggests he prefers women.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Had the same thought. Was incredibly awkward and seemed planned out.

Katie did a better job than I thought she would although I went in thinking it would just be a huge Te'O pity party.

She should have asked him if he had phone sex with Lennay. Would put him in a catch 69 position as far as denying being gay.

Tino, in her mid-20s, lives in Pago Pago, American Samoa. She works for her dad’s construction company and is described by relatives as vivacious and flirtatious, but very involved in the church. In a profile on the social networking site BEBO from 2008, she lists “acting” as a hobby.
hmm

If true (and I don't see why it wouldn't be) LOL AT YOU at the following people:

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh - Getting Real Creepy Real Quick

Alleged girl behind the voice is actually cuteish, btw. Could have been a lot worse.

Edit: On second viewing, a bit man-ish, but she's Samoan, what do you expect. A lot better looking than I'd feared.
