Beyond that though I'm amazed you can't see why people are interested in the story. The web of lies, the question of how involved he was, were there others that were in on it as well, his motive behind it all if he was involved... there's still a lot of questions to be answered. I also still don't quite understand why you think a so called victimless situation should be considered harmless or uninteresting.
I guess we see it differently but it is interesting that I agree with you.

It will be a non-story if all the facts come out and it makes sense and teams are comfortable with how he handles it. That's all yet to be seen though.

As I pointed out, Cam Newton had a lot more red flags than this guy and was still drafted #1.
Although I really don't care much about this story, unless things clear up, the media is going to drag this story into the draft. This is Notre Dame we're talking about, a team that has maintained its elite status and relevance through crappy years. People are not going to let this story go as long as it remains unclear what exactly happened.

By that time, the 2013 Fiscal Cliff will be upon us again so the Repubs vs Dems will dominate the news once more.

Um....actually i dont think its embarrasing at all. He met her. Its not online dating thats embarrasing nc its when your dating a guy who u think is a girl, or when they dont exist at all that it gets a little sketchy. By Pandas own admission the real girl wasnt bad looking - he just didnt like that she lied. So i commend him for that. Was jst wondering who he thought was prettier - the fake girl or the real girl. If he said the real girl i would actually think the world of him because he is placing morals above looks. Which i gather to possibly be the case based on the fact that he said when he met her she was actually not bad looking. Stop trying to stir the pot.
Edit: even if he thought the fake girl was prettier i still commend him. He spent two days with her, but just couldnt get over the fact that she lied. So if she hadnt lied it sounds like there could have been something there. Not sure how you deduct me trying to humiliate Panda because of the fact that im interested in the details of his story but whatever.

Yeah, like politics have trumped a sports scandal before.

GM: So, if you line up as a 3-4 ILB, you see the RB heading into the 1 gap and the QB starts back to pass, which one is imaginary, which one is real?

Te'o: Did I talk to the RB before the game, then definitely the RB!

Polian is a commentator and not a GM anymore, he is just another talking head on tv these days imo. The fact that he was so hard line on the fact that this in no way damaged Te'o's charector or pulled it into question was weird to me. Plus he was wearing Notre dame colors which I also thought was a little weird. Plus what the hell attacked him the night before? He looked all banged up

I dont think this will ever be a non-story. No matter what the facts are it is at such a level of bizarro that it will always be a story imo. If he was duped its bizarre in a sad way, and if he lied its bizarre in a what a wierd thing to do way.

Polian also has ties to Notre Dame, so he is just completely biased.

Notre Dame is just sad imo, they've really fallen far the way they've handled thangs as of late. Disappointing.

Re: The Manti Te'o Dead Girlfriend Hoax Web of Lies

I hope he does fall out of the first round. Gay, straight, transgender, whatever, dude is a great linebacker and I'd love to see him fall to the end of the second round and let him replace Fletcher for the next decade.
