re: Eyewitness Testimony Failure and Manti Te'o


the gay line of reasoning sounds a hell of a lot plausible than anything else, even the pr that he was just a duped dumbass

No. Deadspin found that girl. She never met / conversed with Teo, etc. It was just a pic that was used from her Facebook (?) or some other online pic.
Well, I know the story. But, it just seems odd to me that her pic was used and that information never got back to her if she wasn't in on it. Would seem like SOMEONE would see that pic and say, "that aint........"

I'm not sure.

I am a big college FB fan and i never saw that pic before the deadspin article.


The girl was some random girl on the net and not someone in the ND student body (for example).


Hell, if he had been using my wife's pic...I'd not have known until Deadspin called us or I read the article.


Sure, someone that was keeping up with the story AND was a personal friend of this girl might have said something....but, that is a bigger long shot than many would believe.

In a strange and similar twist, Notre Dame's claim that they were #1 was also proven to be a hoax!


Someone in some other thread quoted some Tweet from a sports journalist or commentator that went something like:

This dude faked a girlfriend, the rest of his buddies faked an entire football team

or something to that effect

Samoan culture is very tight-nit. Wouldnt be surprised if he did this thinking he was helping a fellow Samoan.


This is going to be eye opening as to how the subculture works. Apparently, one of the Tuiasopopo's (a youngster, 22, reportedley a cousing of Manu and Marques) was involved in either perpetuating the scam on Te'o (I guess a prank gone horribly wrong), if you believe Te'o's story, or assisted him and will now take the fall if you believe that Te'o was actually in on it.

Swarbrick says 12/06:


quote:

Swarbrick said Te'o got a call when he was in Orlando for a college football awards show, which was Dec. 6, from a number he knew to be Kekua. The voice on the other end was the one he knew as Kekua, Swarbrick said, and the person on the other end who Te'o had known to be his girlfriend, who he thought died in September, told Te'o she was not dead.

What I want to know is why the Notre Dame wunderkind never said it was BS til now. I looked at a much more detailed narrative of the story earlier today, and it would be a good script for a comedy.

One thing I can't figure out is this. Was the girl in the pictures in on the scam?



No. She was duped into providing some pictures to one of Manti's friends. Read the Deadspin article. It covers all of this.

Fake girlfriend.

Fake death.

Media eats it up. Gets to almost winning most coveted trophy in college football.

He never met his "girlfriend"? Didn't go to her funeral?

He was part of the scam.

re: Eyewitness Testimony Failure and Manti Te'o


Initially I thought that he was a gay mormon and he and his buddy, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the person behind the twitter account, concocted this to explain his lack of girlfriends. But then I read another story that he dated other girls and his teammates were suspicious of this online g/f.

Tuiasosopo and Te'o were friends and there were pics of the two on Tuiasosopo's twitter and tweets b/w the two.

The fake girl's fake sister U'ilani Rae Kekua started a twitter account and Te'o tweeted everyone to follow her saying: "one of the realist people I know". Te'o has since deleted all the tweets to U'ilani.

I think the real chick in the pic was in on it b/c while she may not have seen her pic on national tv as Te'o's girlfriend, someone she knows had to have seen it. Yet she claims she was unaware until deadspin contacted her.

He sent her flowers. Now wouldn't the florist have contacted him to say there is no Lennay at the funeral home? Wouldn't he have looked up her online obit?

This is the day that Teo allegedly found out about the hoax. This is also the same day the GF's fake sister started calling websites to take down the GF's pictures because "her family wanted it that way." The 12/26 date is when Teo allegedly tells ND about it for the first time because "Teo wanted to tell his own family about it during Christmas first."

You are a good sheeple. This was obviously a government conspiracy to promote a somoan. Don't believe me...look at people the government has promoted in the past. Its so obvious something is up. Why won't the media ask the tough questions? I guess you and the rest of the sheeple just buy the "official" story.










Did I do that right?

Wouldn't you think that if this chick really meant that much to him, he would have visited her when she was sick or attended the funeral at the VERY LEAST. This story is the biggest bunch of bs I have ever heard. Dudes is a liar in one way or fashion.

Even if his sexual compass is off, that is not such a big deal in this day and age.

He could have just come out and been celebrated nationally, hell that might have gotten him the Heisman alone.

This is all very strange.
