I BELIEVE that Manti might be gay and it was an elaborate charade that got really ****ed up. That's only what I believe though.

I haven't seen someone lie about a significant other dying of leukemia since the Asian guy in Fargo.

The only way he could be completely innocent is if he did indeed meet a girl and later someone else posed as that girl online. Of course the one he met would have to look a lot like the pictures of the fake one. There's way too much here to believe he was completely duped for this long, unless he is the most naive, trusting person out there....with a side of of "ridiculously stupid" to boot.

I'm not so sure that the "I'm naive and got duped" story is actually better for him in the long run than the "I concocted this entire thing to get in the spotlight" version.

I mean there's a long list of athletes and famous people who've been considered champions and all-time greats who've done the second thing..."anything to win" afterall. They are liars and foolish to think they could get away with the cheating they did but on the other hand, we live in a forgiving society and unlike Clemens and Bonds and Lance, Te'o still has his whole life ahead to make ammends.

If it's the first story, he's just dumber than a door knob.

As absurd as it may seem, considering the amount of homophobia in sports, that's probably the only thing that could redeem Te'o in people's eyes and make all of this understandable.

If he dropped into the 2nd round iwould be okay with the broncos picking him.

It reminded me of Blue Jays manager Tim Johnson lying about being a Vietnam vet. He had to go manage in Mexico.

Speaking of Notre Dame, George O'leary lied up and down on his resume and managed to get another college gig at UCF.

So weird.
I think that's the case. He was a victim and first then decided just to go along with it/leave it alone because he didn't want the embarrassment and everything else that woulda came with it.


Regardless it's still odd that the "love of his life" could be someone who he's never met.

Here's my latest theories.

1) There was (at least at some point) a real Lennay Kekua. Probably even Tuiasasopo's cousin. Lennay might have been a nickname used in the family, which would explain why the name doesn't show up anywhere. This would explain the supposed meeting with the Cardinals fullback. It is even possible that this person lived in Samoa and never came to the US. The fate of this person is uncertain.

2) Lennay Kakua was a fictitious persona that Tuisasopo, Te'o, or someone they knew, created a long time ago. Think "Regina Phalange" from Friends. Guy duped the Cardinals fullback, perhaps the woman he set him up with did not want to use her real name, and thus assumed the fictitious one.

Neither scenario explains why this whole Te'o girlfriend saga started, or even if Te'o was complicit. But it does explain why someone who seemed to be totally unconnected might think it was a real person.

This story just keeps getting increasingly bizarre...at this point any wild explanation seems plausible.

I'm just confused. This hoax guy Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is someone who reportedly created this "Lanney" persona/profile back in 2008 and has contacted other guys as well pretending to be "Lanney". That to be is beyond creepy! It's not like this "Lanney" fake chick popped up overnight to help someone's football career....

Also, did Te'o say he met "Lanney" face to face? There is report he met her in 2009, but then Te'o's twitter account has a tweet to "Lanney's" twitter on October 10, 2011 saying "Nice to meet ya ma'am"......I think the 2009 report out there is inaccurate. And the word "meet" doesn't necessarily mean face to face. Hasn't Te'o said he never met her face to face and it was just an online creepy relationship?

I think Te'o might just be naive and a victim to this creepy Ronaiah guy who created "Lanney" back in 2008 and has contacted other guys as well with this "Lanney" persona....

There's no way he wasn't in on this. No way. Or, he's borderline ********.
