As ive said before they might have been little white lies just so that he was "one of the guys". He might have had no intention to ever marry her or meet her? Might have been beefing up a simple on line love affair into something greater and really thought she died. Not sure why that is so crazy. Im sure alot of teenagers- 20 year olds lie about getting laid or having girlfriends to fit in. When ur the stud player on the nd football team and the big man on campus i would imagine it would be more pressure to have your friends think as much.

If you say you met someone and you didnt, thats a lie, not an exaggeration. If you say you you sent white roses and you didnt, thats a lie. If you say you went to a funeral, and you didnt, thats a lie. Evertyhing Teo said was a lie.
He never said he went to the funeral. And what is the big deal about saying he sent flowers or met her?
Edit: when i say lie i mean he didnt lie about her existence. I believe he lied about little things to "beef up" the relationship. Again this is my opinion obviously. If im rite i dont blame him or fault him. Unless ur name is George Washington you have lied at some point in your life.

Niles Paul was one of them if I'm correct. I think Brandon Banks tried to hook up. I think LL/HTTR-24/7 can clarify the different players. I twas interesting to watch it unfold on twitter.
the question is, after they were warned by Daniels to avoid her, did Banks, Paul and others still contact this fake chick?

I'm sure that the players were trying to get up with her prior to this. Once the excuses kept coming up as to why she couldn't meet or skype, I think they suspected something and had it investigated. That's probably when Daniels got involved. So I think they backed off once they started suspecting something.

I knew she was a fake the moment I heard her on the HTTR-24/7 podcast. A person with the education that she claimed to have doesn't articulate like she did. This is one of those times where I sit back and laugh at all those dudes pumping her up because they thought she was a hot babe that liked the Redskins....lol Many up there rode her train while she tried to run down other people, and smear their names. Dumb broad never even got as much as a "follow" from me on twitter.

I think this is relevant for the occassion.

Theres a difference between telling lies to your friends to make you not look like as much of a loser and going on national television and lying to the entire country.

If Te'o is truly as innocent as he proclaims, then, he wouldnt have gone public with the relationship and made it a constant focus of interviews. Think about it, how many college/NFL players are so public with their REAL relationships? Not many. So why would Te'o be so public with what he supposedly beleived to be an online relationship with a real person? The only possible answer is that he wanted to use the relationship to get attention/sympathy/heisman votes/whatever.

Te'o may have been innocently fooled by the girl. But his blatant lying (or exagerating, if you prefer) about the relationship to national media cannot be reconciled as "innocent." it was a calculated, self-serving move and he deserves every criticism thrown at him.

But he was asked to do the interview, and it was because of his supposed inspirational story. You are making it sound like he asked to do an interview on tv about his girlfriend.
Edit: remember by my belief he really thought she died and so he told people. Of course thats going to be news when u are a bigtime athlete and it comes on the heels of his grandmothers death. Other nfl players arent public about their relationships because their is no story there. The media created the story and asked him to be on tv. When you have already lied to your family and friends whats the diff if u lie to a bunch of people you dont know?

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

Just too many inconsistencies with Manti and his story. Just dont like the situation at all and at first I was all about drafting him if the stock dropped far enough for us. Now he's off my draft board, just cant trust him.

I've met CJ Miles at a "convention" and she might be the smallest non midget i've ever seen.
She has to be 4'8" maybe 70 LBS.

It doesn't matter who asked for the interview - if you go on tv and lie millions of people, you deserve to be criticized for it later. And the timeline of events indicated he continued publicaly perpetuating the hoax when he knew it was a lie. Te'o is either a liar, incredibly stupid, or both. Whatever the case, he's demonstrated poor decision making and he can't hide that from nfl teams.
