I think knowing he's a ****ing liar is enough.

Getting into "lying for this or that reason just doesn't make sense" opens the door to the inevitable yet idiotic "he couldn't have lied because doing so was stupid and unnecessary" trolls.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Pro move would be for Teo to announce, "this is a private matter and my family and I will handle it that way. I'm looking forward to the draft. Thank you."

And never utter a word about it again

Could be tough to do that as more facts reveal themselves in the coming days. From the night when Tiger wrecked his Escalade to the following weeks after, what was originally thought turned into something a whole lot more...who knows what is gonna come of this story.

Article says he asked for that picture in Dec 2012. She was already dead.

Just reading through all of the twitter accts associated with this...
@ceeweezy51
@jayRahz
@SueKalena
Among others makes it even more confusing of what the hell actually happened. Hard to believe the Tuiasossopo guy was in on this alone.

Pro move for Manti would be to tweet a pic like this?

So did these hoaxers hold a fake funeral or did Manti just not go?

From Twitter:

"Not sure why people are mad at Te'o. Tim Tebow spent every year of his career in a relationship with a made-up person who died tragically."

This story is just fantastic. All of it. This is an all-time great sports story. GOAT.

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?
looooooooooooooooool

It is completely fine for her to not travel to Hawaii to see him. He lied to his parents about this for some reason when there is no logical explanation if he wasn't involved.
this is one detail that i think has been overlooked, for a few reasons.

1. mantei obviously lied to his dad about lennay coming to hawaii. hard for him to explain this away as a catfishing.

2. why choose this as a spot to lie, though? as you mentioned it would be perfectly acceptable if she was never able to make the flight to hawaii. the best i could come up with is that mantei and lennays alleged meetings took place at vacation resorts a distance from his family home, and were actually a cover for rendezvous' with tuiasosopo.

this seems suspicious to me. how often do you have anyone else listening in on a phone call? however, if he were to orchestrate this as the endgame, he might have this "brother" call when he is around some teammates so they would overhear the conversation and corroborate his story.

a good point. in addition to not going to see her on her deathbed, he didn't make an attempt to attend the love of his life's funeral.

This was explained away by her saying she didn't want him to miss a game for her funeral. So he played, that brave soul.

Huh? The Gay'o Te'o theory is hugely popular. Getting into "lying for certain reasons" territory is inevitable.
