For Clemens and Armstrong it made sense to have a lawyer present since they were facing legal liability.
If money was raised for charity based off this stuff, you never know, Te'o could be potentially in trouble too.

So long as the charity is legit, he should be fine.

I hope it's not. Is that wrong of me? This story is like Christmas. The more screwed up, the better.

Also: this NBA game is taking forEVER. So tilted that it's tied right now. If it goes to OT, I'm going to explode.

I thought there were reports that there was no charity for Kekua, but only donations made in her name to a legit leukemia charity, but there could be more charity scams that haven't yet come to light.

He is lucky to have graduated. NFL fans for the most part aren't as organized and creative/sadistic with chants as college fans.

Who knows?

That's kind of the point. Nobody knows. Maybe not even Manti. So I'd be lawyered up to my eye balls.

Or hold up cell phones with someone (possibly a recording) chanting on the other end.

Re: Manti Ruh R'oh

Probably a little late for this, but do you guys think Manti has a lawyer around because he might be the Fat Guy Strangler?

I expect a bunch of non-answers and us not learning interesting.

But damnit i I won't be riveted to every word anyway.

Is this how the people who follow tabloids feel when Tom Cruise divorces his wife or whatever the equivalent of this story is?
