Hoax or no hoax after it is said and done who is the victim?

To me it is not the end of the world for this guy. He will get draft fairly high.

I would draft him too. I just probably would try not to bond with him in anyway and might think everything he said was bullshit. However - if u show up on time and play well u can still be on my football team.

Why does there have to be a victim in order to raise a red flag for a team that will potentially use a high pick on him and give him a multi-million dollar deal?

Is this a kid you want to put into your locker room and tap as a future leader that can be trusted?

We don't know how deep this goes yet or how he'll handle it when he's grilled on it.

For all we know the guy could have some serious issues.

For all we know, pretty much anyone could have serious issues. Look back through all of sports, and there are massive head cases that played brilliantly. Babe Ruth and Lawrence Taylor jump out at me right off the bat. Are you saying no to either of those in their prime for your favorite sports teams?

Lets just say he is fully 100% guilty of starting and continuing this hoax looking for attention. He chose something that only hurts himself. Its sports, people want wins, not choir boys. Its not something that will keep him out of the NFL. If driving drunk and killing someone doesnt get you kicked out of the NFL, then this will have little effect.

Also, if people can never learn from mistakes, why did we keep Trent and Fred? Something tells me that Teo is not plotting his new internet girlfriend anytime soon.

Kneegate, Mantigate, it's all the same.

He will be this years Burfict, go get him, he's got talent even if he's a bad liar. He will be a bargain pickup.

Cam Newton was drafted #1 overall and had red flags galore. (theft, cheating, lying about being offered money)

Ben Rothlesberger raped women in bathrooms and still has a 100 million dollar contract and a NFL job.

Ray Lewis was in a fight that led to a double homicide, and helped try to cover the crime up that his friends commited. He went on to be paid vast sums of money and will be playing for the AFC championship this weekend.

Terrell Owens has thrown many coaches and teammates under the bus that he's been with and still was offered a tryout this past off-season.

Randy Moss was drafted in the 1st after many red flags during college. Even after he's shown time and time to quit on plays, he still manages to have a job and will be playing for the NFC championship this weekend.

Pacman Jones, who's antics in a night club landed a man paralyzed, is still playing in the NFL.

Kenny Britt has been arrested twice now on different charges, and has recently been brought in for questioning regarding a stabbing that occurred to a friend.


..and so on. So in the grand scheme of it, no, this guy lying about some girl (if he did indeed lie) doesn't come close to what any of these guys above have done.


When I said in my post that it wasn't a big deal, I was talking about on a personal level. In a world where people have their priorities straight, none of these guys I mentioned would be playing in the NFL. As it is, owners (in part because of their fans) overlook these issues (and crimes) so they can root for their favorite team come Sunday. It's a obsession with some people, and pretty sad if you ask me.

How did the real her stack up to the pictures. Rate them both (in your eyes) on a scale of 1 to 10.

This would be news at anytime.

The three people happiest about this Manti situation are Mike Shanahan, Dr. Andrews, and Lance Armstrong. Having all this heat pulled off of them was definitely a gift from the media gods.

Really man? Really? Guy shares something personal and embarrassing and you asking this? I'm sure he's over it, but still. C'mon man.

I dunno about Lance. He's coming off looking like a crazy man lately if you've been following.

Both these people have one very common thing going on...they are both narcissist egomanics. These guys love the attention and will do anything to keep in spotlight. With Lance it was to take PEDs and threatin people to stay on top, and with Manti it was to use a story to pump his own profile for the Heisman and draft stock.

These guys dont have any guilt, they are just pissed they got caught. Unfortunately, part of the problem is Jeremy Schap, continue to feed the ego.

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

I swear the media is overblowing this, just like they did when his grandmother died and his fake GF. The guy lied, he looks like a fool but to me it's over and done with. This should not have any impact on where he's drafted. He might be a little bit of a self promoter but he'll get humbled the first day he get into an NFL camp.
