Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

you can tell he is lying in the sportscenter woja interview because all of his answers are too orderly, like "this happened, then this, then this, and her last words were I love you." it's all bs.

it just sounds like a lie - no genuine, sincere, heartfelt emotion, and all his answers sound canned, no random details like the truth would sound, his responses too orderly an sound pretty generic - and at one point when describing how he lost his grandmother and gf within 6 hours he actually is smiling the whole time.

I can't tell if this is just confirmation bias on my part or not. I'm inclined to say yes; I don't think I can come to any sort of reasonably unbiased conclusion at this point, but his body language and tone does match up with my preconceived notions of guilt.

In other words, I agree with you, but I don't know how meaningful either of our opinions are at this point.

UPDATE: Pete Thamel references these letters in this article from Sports Illustrated. Te’o mentions a specific letter before the Michigan game to Thamel and claimed Kekua’s brother Kainoa read it to him. Thamel’s article references a letter received for the Senior Day game against Wake Forest. Thamel claims Te’o was read the letters by family members before being emailed them.

Te’o told the Notre Dame interviewer the last letter came before the Stanford game on Oct. 13 (interview more than four weeks after that game). Te’o then told Thamel he received another letter from her before the Wake Forest game on Nov. 17.





Emailed letters. Stamps must be expensive te'o yo.



"I wrote these letters back in '94."

So why is this Cardinals player saying he met her in America Samoa and she is real?

Maybe he met the girl that they were using the picture of. Or concussions.

Re: Manti Te'o: rut roh

Lots of people mentioned ITT stuff about jail time, etc.

Assuming Menti isn't in on this(big reach) is what this Ronaiah guy did even illegal? I would think if he pretended to actually be that girl from her pictures there might be some legal issues, but just using her picture doesn't seem like that big of a deal. I'd think that's something that's done in internet chat rooms everyday...?

There's nothing to get. It was a movie, and now a TV show, about basically exactly what happened to Manti. People pretending to be other people online, falling in love with them, etc.

Falls big. Earlier itt, I said that even if he isn't gay, he should come out to save face and get sympathy again. Now, I'm realizing that's very wrong for him because he has the potential for an NFL career.

If he did it for publicity the dude is going to be seen as a scumbag forever.
Agreed. But playing the "I was hoaxed card" with a PR team and agency paying people to 'fess up and say Te'o had nothing to do with it works. The problem is Te'o unknown value to an agency. High-risk, minimal reward.

And never utter a word about it again
At this point, his future professional representation is in his ear and you may be right.

Keep it ambiguous and be a Rorshach test. He's so beloved and sympathetic that those who feel that way will say he was duped; those more cynical will say he made it up; and those who think he's not a bad guy but knew she didn't exist will say there's a good reason for all of this (gay) and understand why he won't admit it because of what it would do for his career and relationship with his family.

Had an interesting discussion with my office mate this morning. We've all discussed the Te'o/gay possibility, but what if it was the hoaxer instead acting out on his own latent homoerotic desires? Think about it: Feigning being a woman to get really emotionally intimate with another man--this does explain the massive time investment on the perp's end if he was getting more out of it than simple lulz.

yeah i thought about this and it seems the pretty logical atm . in the video posted about 10 posts ago manti was describing lenna as very religious and giving him religious inspiration and we know roniahh is the son of a preacher ....also according to reports roniahh tried to seduce other guys but had been caught before . so this is definetly possible

He would also become rich releasing the app he used to disguise his voice when they talked. People would easily pay $1.99-$9.99 for it.
