I read it as they claimed they were going to allow Te'o/his family/his agent reveal it on Monday (3 days ago, not next Monday), but Te'o's people didn't reveal it, and then Deadspin hit. Which is a lil suspicious if he was innocent and wanting to come clean.

Although I guess there is a chance he is a total sociopath, but that seems like a stretch.
The milking of the fake death after not seeing her while sick, or seeing her while healing from the car accident, or visiting her grave doesn't make this a huge stretch, IMO.

That said, Te'o did mention that account -- which Deadspin reported didn't exist in November. He either forgot that the "love of his life's" Twitter account was changed or knew of the hoax by then and was milking it so no one would try to make a legit communication with the account he was mentioning.

Re: Manti Te'o: Epic trolling from imaginary dead people ITT

the very best part about this scandal is nobody died, got hurt, or even offended. we are free to make fun without any semblance of remorse.

This is part of the reason it is so enjoyable for me. All the other scandals of recent memory had significant loss of human dignity, happiness, freedom, life and limb, etc. This is like a feel good for the whole family!

On Dec. 6, while at an awards show in Orlando, Fla., Te'o had gotten a phone call from a woman claiming to be Kekua and, according to Swarbrick, was "more than suspicious; he was startled and shocked."

Two Days After He Knew It Was A Hoax, Here's Manti Te'o Talking About Losing “My Girlfriend”

Probably felt compelled to mention his GF passing away from cancer since it would seem weird if he didn't.

What, why does that seem like a stretch.

I think at this point there are 3 basic possibilities

1. He is super duper naive and is the victim of the most elaborate and unlikely catfish of all time. Yet in spite of this naivete, he was dastardly enough to play up her alleged death and milk it to his benefit for all it's worth
2. He's gay and wanted to use her as his beard. This doesn't explain the death + milking
3. He's a sociopath who masterminded this scheme to gain national attention

Personally I'm having a hard time conceiving of a scenario where he's not sociopathic.

Re: Manti Te'o: Epic trolling from imaginary dead people ITT

Not bad trolling from USA Today here

Quote:
New Orleans Saints -- "How angry were you at the perpetrators of this hoax? $5,000? $10,000? $25,000??"

Jacksonville Jaguars -- "If we draft you, can we put your phony girlfriend down for season tickets? Like 35,000 of them?"

Pittsburgh Steelers -- "More like the Immaculate Deception, amirite?!" (High-fives Dan Rooney.)

Re: Manti Te'o: Epic trolling from imaginary dead people ITT

the thing to keep in mind is that there is like years worth of footage of Teo talking about her and lying his ass off, therefore this is only going to get better / more hilarious / more absurd over the next few weeks

Knew because he's a story teller? Or because of shower incidents? Or what?

Also it's hilarious to see ESPN trying to keep up with TMZ.
