Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

I keep returning to this:

The absolute BEST scenario for a ND truther is that

A: Manti Te'o is dumber than a bag of rocks. Sure, he told some white lies about how they met out of embarrassment, but he was legit fooled. Everything he's said recently has been accurate (found out Dec 6th, told ND Dec 26th, was legit shocked, etc). He is one of the dumbest and/or most gullible people in the world. He first interacted with fake-Lennay in 2009 and over 4 years never saw her once or even skyped and fell in love with her. Historically dumb.

B: Despite being historically dumb, he was also cynical/smart enough to play up the relationship to a huge degree. He repeatedly lied about the relationship to the MSM over and over and over and over and over. Some of it was out of embarrassment because he didn't want to say they had never met, but not all of it. He played it up for the attention without a doubt. He said she was the most beautiful person he'd ever met. Wanted to see her again one day. Love of his life. He met her in Stanford in person and in Hawai'i. Talked to her every single night, sometimes for 8-10 hours. These are outright lies and exaggerations. etc etc etc. He exploited the **** out of a twitter-conversation-partner level relationship, essentially, and we have dozens of interviews that catch him in lies.

C: There exists someone who hates him enough or is a big enough troll to undertake a years-long hoax on him. Years long. Potentially up to 4 years of faking, even if Te'o exaggerated/lied about the time, still 1-2 years. This person orchestrated a years long hoax that involved daily contact, fake family, fake social media accounts, getting a girl to converse with Manti every night, etc. A massive operation.

How can you possibly believe in all three of those things. How?

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

From ESPN:

http://espn.go.com/college-football/...rlfriend-angle

Quote:
In September, the grandmother of Te'o died, and it was widely reported that his girlfriend died hours later. Media outlets pounced on the story as Notre Dame began its march to the title game. After Deadspin.com broke the hoax story, however, multiple media reports have said players thought that Te'o had only met Lennay Kekua once and that it wasn't really accurate to call her his girlfriend. But as condolences poured in, Te'o "played along," according to the teammate, who wished to remain anonymous.

The teammate portrayed the move as part of the All-American's personality, telling ESPN that Te'o liked attention so much that he would sometimes point himself out to friends when he was on television.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Tuiasosopo sounds like a major scumbag:

http://www.csnchicago.com/ncaa/notre...541&feedID=630

Alema Te'o said he met Tuiasosopo in a Los Angeles hotel lobby and quickly felt something was off. Te'o runs a football camp in American Samoa, which Tuiasosopo said he had a hand in planning -- a statement which, according to Te'o, was not the case.

"If heís telling me that he was doing my job, then where the hell was I?" Te'o said.

Te'o detailed how Tuiasosopo had with him a 9-year-old girl called Pookah, which jives with a TMZ report involving a separate meeting with Tuiasosopo and a child referred to as Pookah. Te'o said his great-nephew was "mesmerized" by Pookah and was led to believe she was a cousin of Kekua, when in fact she was one of Ranaiah Tuiasosopo's sisters, according to the elder Te'o.

Alema Te'o also said Manti Te'o had previously talked on the phone with Pookah while Kekua was purportedly still alive but too tired to talk.

When one of Alema Te'o's nieces attempted to talk with Pookah, she -- according to Te'o -- didn't speak, only nodding or shaking her head while Tuiasosopo stood over her with both his hands on her shoulders.

Te'o detailed how Tuiasosopo said he was hoping to raise money for a friend of Kekua's, who also had leukemia and attended Stanford, so that person could put herself through college. That hope was characterized as a "dying wish" of Kekua's, according to Te'o.

Te'o said Tuiasosopo continually talked up a charity event for his foundation, and believed at the time Tuiasosopo was attempting to align himself with Te'o to gain notoriety for his foundation.

Te'o minced no words when referring to Tuiasosopo multiple times during the segment, saying: "Ranaiah Tuiasosopo is a liar, he concocted the whole thing, he misrepresented whatever program that he was trying to get across to Manti, and shoot, he lied every step of the way. I donít feel itís beyond him to hire somebody or bring somebody in to play the role of Lennay to get Manti to buy into this deal."

Has anybody checked on bdidd? Thumbs up if he's taking the high road, but I'm worried he died in a spasm of cognitive dissonance.

notre dame has a reputed culture of sweeping damning allegations under the rug to protect its image and football program. i know i'm not the only one who believes that.

"no probable cause" is a borderline sociopathic response as it fails to acknowledge the possibility of a larger issue here, iyam.

So..
1. T'eo is a narcissist who later played along with the cancer/dead gf for publicity.
2. Tuiasosopo seems like an all around scumbag who originally duped and masterminded the thing.
3. No ghey sex

I could care less about the reputation of an over-the-hill university or a ******ed 22 yr old. I just hope this gets the ball rolling on destroying the credibility of sports media in this country.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

It just blows my mind that Te'o being both hilariously and historically dumb AND a massive narcissist/exploiter/self-promoter... Is basically the best case scenario. That's the best. Anything past that and you get into "Te'o is in on the hoax" territory.

loooooooooooooooooooooool
