Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

i have no idea if this has been covered or is true:


Christopher Lebutzki ‏@lebutzki
@TerryFoster971 So when he says he met her at the Stanford/ND game, apparently he was tweeting her on the bench and during timeouts

FTR, they took a call from Chuck Goudie, the chief investigative reporter for the ABC affiliate in Chicago for over 20 years.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

So Manti at no point talked to any of her family about her death... he at no point went to visit her gravesite... he at no point looked for an obituary or wanted to put up some sort of commemoration to her friends and family?

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

First time caller, long time believer. Gonna get worse before it gets better.

As Te'o's fake PR Mgr I am highly recommending he come clean ASAP. My guess is he reverses course and admits everything is less than 72 hrs.

Especially after he reads the thread.

I think MT needs to go on Oprah tomorrow and tell the truth. They can bump whoever their scheduled guest was.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I like how the Te'o-as-victim spin includes him being "trusting" like that's a good thing. It seems to me that, if the ND story is true, he's actually "gullible" and "unable to think critically" and "doesn't understand what a relationship is".

I mean, not that I think it is true.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but Tim Burke (deadspin guy) is also @bubbaprog on twitter, the guy who screencaps like everything ever sports related. Pretty interesting guy.

Perped a hoax and GullibleOAT are two pretty unsavory options.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

I think the simple fact that Tuiasosopo was almost 100% behind the account, and Tuiasosopo and Te'o were very close friends IRL, is enough to make it much much more likely that they were working together on it rather than Te'o's close friend running some years long hoax on him.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

So the story from ND's side is:

Any time he ever said "meeting" he meant online.

After her death he never tried to contact anyone related to the "love of his life"

He was called around Christmas and they said "ha ha I ain't dead!"

ND didn't contact police because they didn't know what they didn't know.

Also somebody earlier posted about Tim Tebow having fake girlfriends in college also, was that ever rumored?
