And now we find out the voice in the phone was Ronaiah's cousin, Tino, a chick.


How do we know that those were recordings from Te'o's phone? How do we know that those recordings weren't made after Deadspin broke the story? Why would the Post rely on the word of unnamed sources?

Sick that this whole fiasco started because "journalists" failed to do basic fact-checking...and STILL new versions come out without basic fact-checking.

This all goes back to Ronaiah and Manti working together.

I officially give up


Why? The most logical original theory is still holding up...

It's all a gay cover-up.

I officially give up. This is like a dream you have where the storyline changes so much it goes into full retard.


Dammit, it was way funnier when it was a dude talking to Te'o in falsetto.

I'm completely and utterly confused. Why would Tuiasosopo's lawyer claim his client was the originator of Lennay's voice when he actually isn't?

because everyone is lying to protect Te'o as gay.

the problem is there are SO MANY lies on the board right now, that whatever explanation gets floated doesnt work because of the other lies.

It has truly gone full retard. Only the truth that he is gay will clear it up.

it is the only theory that still holds water.

With all these stories, they've worn me down to the point I don't give a damn.

And this might be a good lesson for PR disaster control. Every day come out with a different more ridiculous version of "the truth" until people don't care anymore.

Don't forget the part about making the largest media outlet in your industry be complicit in your cover up.

OK.... more questions about this Tino:

quote:

Tino, in her mid-20s, lives in Pago Pago, American Samoa. She works for her dad’s construction company and is described by relatives as vivacious and flirtatious, but very involved in the church. In a profile on the social networking site BEBO from 2008, she lists “acting” as a hobby.


Does ATT's mobile to mobile extend to Pago Pago?
Are there any calls on Te'o's phone bill to Pago Pago?
How did Ronaiah get on the phone and tell him the nurse says your calls help her if he was in CA and she was in Pago Pago?

I disagree.

It's actually terrible PR when looking at all these inconsistencies.

If anything, they are winning because of the media.

Said it before and I'll say it again, first objective of a good PR firm is to gain back trust. 0 trust has been gained because I think we all can agree Te'o is a lying sack of shit

The most disturbing part of this whole saga is how often I've found myself agreeing with Stephen A. Smith.

It was so fricking obvious watching his interview with Katie yesterday that the dude was lying.

There were numberous times where he would forget what he was "supposed" to say....and he would just pause and act like he was really upset. And then he would just say some shite like "as long as my family is ok, I am ok".

It was such BS and made me sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No use in trying to make sense of lies based upon lies based upon lies...

OK so now they are saying it was Ronaiah's cousin Tino or whatever the frick.

da faq?

And now word is out they released the story about Ronaiah allegedly being the one who talked to Te'o in a woman's voice so Ronaiah could take the fall for this and leave others out of it

right....
