Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

Quick question here. Why the **** does it matter? Did it change the outcome of a game? Or how he played? I dont really get what is going on here

The bigger picture is that deadspin got to say FU to all the major media outlets that never fact checked this story and played it up like ESPN and SI.

As far as for Te'o, he is entering the draft process and he is going to have to answer a lot of questions about this. From nim's theory, to how dumb is he and how much did he really know.

Because it's an extremely bizarre story and everyone wants answers.

At a very minimum, if he knew, faking a death due to cancer to increase media exposure is an objectively awful thing to do.

why do we need answered? do you really care that much and what in your life is wrong that you need answer about a story that means nothing to you? This makes no sense. It seems like this guy is having personal issues and why the hell do you or anyone else needs answers about his personal life? I mean really you care that much?

This is what i dont get either. No media outlet fact checked anything? This story has been around for awhile and just now Deadspin is looking into it?

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

Again, leveraging fake cancer to increase your shot at the Heisman isn't okay. Or, he's Vince Young-level dumb. Or, he'll be the highest profile male American athlete to ever come out as gay. Any way, it's a story.

The guy has been going around doing cancer charity, speaking with parents of dieing children about their mutual grief. If he knew anything about this that is extremely messed up.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

I can't believe he's going to pile onto the lie with this ridiculous hoax thing. Now they're talking about investigators getting involved. He can't live this lie forever. I would venture to guess Nim is right with the gay thing. If that is the case, this could be a moment for him to step out and man up. Embrace it and clear or path for others like him so that they don't have to live the same lies he did. Of course, this is all just an assumption. That being said, I don't buy the "hoax" thing one bit.

Who sits with someone on the phone every night for "hours" for such a long period of time just for a hoax? He never once mentioned he never actually met the girl in real life? You'd think that he would... I dunno... have a ****ing funeral to attend? Maybe he'd want to go visit her parents? What a bunch of garbage.

I don't think he's gay anymore. I think he's dumber than Vince Young, but not gay.

i think him being gay is possible. it's also definitely possible that he just fell for a dude posing as a girl and was lying about meeting her and talking on the phone because as a superstar college football player, having an online girlfriend is something he'd get tons of shit for.

either way, he also had to be in on the fake death thing.

Re: Manti Teos Dead Girlfriend A Hoax

I think the fact that he is buddies with Tuiasosopo clearly shows he was in on the hoax.

I kinda hope he's gay to be honest. The sports world could use a high profile athlete to come out of the closet. I can't believe it's 2013 and there still hasn't been one to do so(correct me if I'm wrong but I don't know of any).
