He should have asked Reba to hold a 2+2 sign.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

The only angle that can make this sobering is the gay cover-up. We'd suddenly be asking much different questions, mostly about ourselves and our culture.

Would much rather LOL @ Lennay

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

No matter what the truth is, someone involved in this had to have a ****ed up motivation at some point. Whether it's Te'o being a sociopath and wanting attention, trolls wanting to ruin someone's life, or Tuiasosopo wanting to jerk off while ****ing over his best friend etc.

I can't wait till that person is forced to explain his motivations

I know gay people don't always get a fair shake in our culture, but I don't think creating fake girlfriends and having them die of leukemia is a particularly rational response

What's wrong with a culture who likes people in a relationship to be able to reproduce with each other?

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Sorry, but if it turns out that Te'o is gay, I won't have any sympathy. I think there are much easier and much less attention whore-y ways of having a beard than having one at another college who you've never met, who then dies. It's not a product of a culture that can't accept homosexuality, it's a narcissist who thinks someone dying close to them makes them more interesting (in addition to the gay coverup).

I was on the 90% Te'o hoax train this morning but the more that comes out, the more it doesn't look that way...

I'm not mad at you if you're gay. I just don't see why people like you are pussies about it and won't just come out and admit it.

Guess it's just a gay persons character trait or something.

Yeah, this.

The whole gay cover-up theory doesn't hold up in a vaccuum. There was no need for this elaborate story. Instead of having his gf die, why wouldn't he just claimed that they broke up or something?

If it started as a gay coverup, then at some point it turned into a "let's exploit this for attention and publicity" thing.

I can't tell if the "people like you" thing is calling 72 a closeted gay person or something.

Also, obligatory

I can just picture the trash talk in the NFL

"Manti, your girlfriend tastes like the centre of a honey nut cheerio"

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

"We all fell for the Te'o legend"
"Legend of Manti Te'o's girlfriend: a tall tale everyone wanted to believe"


yeah it's society's fault that you guys suck at your jobs...

No denying he milked the **** out of it.

I'm willing to go as far as 40% panic/escalation though. Depends on what other info surfaces.

Doesn't Holtzberg's report back from campus and other teammates in addition to other reports pretty much rule him out being gay? This is not what it sounds like to me at least.
