Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Would people really accuse a college football player of being gay if he didn't have a gf?

And why would she need to die a fake death? Is it gay to have a living gf?

Living fake gfs are much higher maintenance than dead ones.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Maybe a re-post, but the way Gene Wojciechowski said that after the girl died and he couldn't find an obituary or a write-up about the car accident asked Manti if they could contact the family and Manti said "the family preferred not to be contacted" they asked for photos of her and he said "the family preferred not to send photos."

That is making it really hard for me to imagine he wasn't involved in this.

I guess it's possible he was involved with Tuiasasopo and they needed to cover their tracks, so Tuiasasopo comes up with a fake twitter account to make it look like Te'o is dating Lennay instead.

Can anyone confirm this? Googling it just brings up articles about this story.

well she "died" a month before the first time the family/teammates were supposed to meet her in four years.

telling everyone you have an internet gf seems like a solid play. although doesn't really explain the need for tweets, pics, CANCER, this Ron guy being in on it etc.

idk makes more sense to me than him being legit insane.

He could get scammed out of his signing bonus. The resulting depression leads to 30 fake tackles in the Superbowl, which the team loses because he bounced off the runningback's knee on every 3rd and 7.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

This is such a weird dynamic for the media. First, all mainstream media completely sucked. Now that its leaked, its not like someone actually died, or someone is dying, or anything like that. All the people involved are alive and there's really no "out of bounds" or "ethical problems" for the investigators at this point, so everything is going to come out 100% in the next couple weeks.
