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

hold on, he knew of the hoax AND then said she died? I thought he was told she had died and then the hoax was revealed to him....

Well, ok he straight up lied.....that changes my opinion of Te'o

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

Teo also ha an elaborate mushy story about meeting her for the first time and how their eyes met for the first time... and said he sent white roses after she died and that it was a closed casket funeral. Whatever his motives were, the man is a pathological liar. He apparently loves attention so Im sure hrs getting a kick out of all this.

This kid (Te'o) talked to a girl over the internet, met her, continued the relationship, then randomly she "dies", then randomly she "calls him and says she's not dead", then he continues acting like she's dead, until the press breaks the story and he fesses up that he was had?

If I'm right (which I'm not sure if I am), how is that his fault at all? The guy's probably incredibly embarrassed.
I'm leaning towards thinking he was in on the whole thing because it would be good publicity for him to have the season he had after his gf and his grandma dying on the same week. But I've been hesitant to comment on the story because I don't believe we really have the clear picture here yet.

Could it be true that he is gay and the gf was a cover up attempt that he eventually decided to discard, without realizing people would do their research on it? He actually talked about being with his gf in person, and now we now that his gf didn't exist I have to believe he was in on it. The whole "calling her every night" thing reeks of him being on it too, I doubt there would be any girl out there willing to spend the entire night on the phone with him for months on end just to keep a hoax running.

I just don't see any way he wasn't in on this, whether it was for publicity reasons or personal reasons. But still, we don't know all the facts yet, so I am not going to be set in my opinion until we do.

yeah it was extremely embarrassing because i was talking to my friends about her. i wasn't dating other girls. i was really looking forward to meeting her.

but i didn't tell my friends she died. i took it on the chin and moved on, lesson learned
If she wasnt bad looking what was she lying about?

Kid just got duped like a many other people in this world. You all act as if this is something rare. It's not. People fake things all the time on the internet, and you can connect with people without ever meeting them. Now, if he was involved in this whole thing, kid should be kicked in the balls for using cancer to gain sympathy.



Wrong. Others have written the same thing. As a matter of fact the article that Smoot posted in the other thread references the fact that rite after her death is when his Heisman campaign went full throttle. The whole deal with Te'o was his courage to play in the face of all that adversity

HE DID NOT GET DUPED.

HE SAID HE MET HER.

HE SAID HE TALKED TO HER ON THE PHONE EVERY NIGHT.

HE LIED.


Sorry for the large font, and bold text, but people keep making comments that conflict what is KNOWN to have actually happened.
He could have talked to someone on the phone.

that's a great question.

she had serious issues, and i obviously had some issues of my own for trusting/pursuing this kind of thing.

when she finally came clean, i tried to forgive/forget. she came to town for a visit, we spent a couple days together, she went back home.

i still tried to forgive and forget but i couldn't past it, couldn't put any trust there, etc.

i told her to have a nice life, and that was that.

I just want now at this point, for teo to say "I am a gay man who has covered up his sexuality with an Internet lie. I am truly sorry. I did bad in the national championship because I had just found out AJ McCarron wasn't gay, and it broke my heart." (ok well maybe not the last part)
You act like he owes you something. He doesn't have to say shit to you or joe public. He didn't gain anything from this but embarrassment.

Put the fawking tin foil hats back on the roll or go broil something with it.

I don't care how involved in a hoax someone is, they wouldn't talk to him, on the phone, all night as he claims. But he claims lots of conflicting things.

That very well may be the case, but I'm simply speculating on what most likely happened. To be honest, I haven't read much on it, nor do I care to. To me, it's a non-story. A dude lying (or tricked) about a girlfriend on the intrawebz. Whether it was some grand scheme or he's a innocent victim doesn't really concern me. If he did lie about her death to gain sympathy, it's a pretty douche bag thing to do and maybe karma bites him in the ass one day.

As far as the Heisman, there wasn't any stopping the Johnny Football train. Last I checked, they don't give out sympathy votes for the Heisman. If it was a plan, it was a bad one.
