Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

te'o is handling this as if he still has something to hide.

if he was scammed and hoodwinked he would come out and say it in front of the world for everyone to see, there's no fear in that, let the people do the investigating just like deadspin. There can be villains and fall men/women for that. but when you're making things up as you go, which is what i suspect is actually happening here, you have to play things by ear. appearing on espn off camera is part of that play

Manti Ruh R'oh - It turns out Tuiasosopo is GOAT voice actor. T'eo still a liar/exaggerator.

If tuiasasohwhatstheuse wants to keep the troll going he should claim he received money as gifts without asking and claim te'o was willing to give it because it was from boosters.

Apparently he is a usc fan so it would be hilarious.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

if Manti unwittingly shipped "Lennay" any monies, would that be breaking any fraud laws or anything?

guessing they don't want to go down that line tho, otherwise this thing has to go to court, and everything comes out ... and they seem to want exactly the opposite

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

This whole Te'o as the victim thing might ring mostly true, but it's clear he helped foster the lies, he actively led people to believe they had met, he played up the relationship, never once mentioned in all his interviews it was online only, etc.

Then after he knew he still lied about it.

He might have thought it was a real person, but also played up a silly online flirtation as a serious relationship for publicity.

And that's BEST case scenario.

The off-camera interview with a lawyer present - yeah, I'm not expecting any bombshells here.

Exclusive interview and still spending all of an hour or so fact-checking, if at all. Top notch.

I for one will be shocked if it turns out that that football player lied about how far he got with a girlfriend.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

What's the potential liability here? He's not under oath or in the middle of a criminal investigation or anything. Why the lawyer? It doesn't seem like things can go too badly here.

It's not like his draft stock isn't going to drop because he got tripped up on a technicality; teams are going to pull the trigger on him or not pull the trigger on him based on their overall evaluation, and the NFL teams interested in him are going to investigate and interview the **** out of him anyway.

ESPN most certainly the friendliest place for T'eo to go. Totally in bed with NCAA and NFL and will certainly do what they can to assist, within reason.

Te'o in good shape imo. The general public doesn't have the time or motivation to keep up with the mind blowing developments this thing has churned out.

That can be accomplished without having the lawyer sitting at the table during the questioning.

Having a lawyer is probably the smartest thing manti has done this far.

@darrenrovell: RT @McMurphyESPN Te'o tells @JeremySchaap he was not involved in creating girlfriend hoax. "There is no way I could be a part of this"

yes, i know, but im still not seeing the downside to having him there?

i realize hes not testifying or anything legal, but it cant hurt to have your attorney present.

eta: and you have to think its his advisers who wanted the attorney present, right?
