i honestly see a religious motive here. He's a devout Mormon so maybe he was trying to garner sympathy, publicity, prestige and supporters a la Tebow and his religiosity. the kid's stage dad is the dead give away.


very disturbing indeed. but more disturbing are the nit wits at Notre Dame for thinking he's the victim :lol:

Wow. RT @TheBigLead: Confirmed from 2 sources: ESPN has known about Manti Te'o story for 10 days.

"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Don't people join football teams so they don't have to pretend they have a girlfriend?

This sure smells like he was in on it. If so, will he ever live it down?

The first thing that leapt to my mind when I heard this story is: he's gay.

It's the only thing that makes all the puzzle pieces fit.

From a ND student:

Quote:
The debate among teammates wasn’t whether or not Manti
actually knew this girl — it was clear that they had been in contact; no,
players just didn’t think that it was fair to call Lennay Kekua Manti’s
girlfriend, period (it is well-known on campus that he has had relations with
other girls during his time at Notre Dame). They recognized what was going on
for what it was — a terrible publicity stunt used to fuel Manti Te’o’s Heisman
campaign.
In fact, many of the players privately commented that they didn’t want
the students to wear leis in support of Manti and wouldn’t participate
themselves — they cited that the team never responded so publicly to tragic
events for other players. But there was also the feeling that Manti didn’t
deserve to benefit from publicity from the death of somebody he barely knew

This makes a lot more sense than someone pulling a prank would.
