    Re: Manti Te'o & The Crying Game

    And now we have a Tino Tuiasosopo in the picture as the voice, a female.

    There's no obvious legal recourse here, really...though I'm sure a book deal and all that jazz is on the way which is probably why Ronaiah has lawyer'd up with Rodney King's old attorney and is not saying a word to anyone. All this stuff still only just came out last week. They're probably just planning their best course of action so that they can get the most $$$ out of all this.

    Either way it's looking more and more like what I was saying all along is true...this has nothing to do with Manti Te'o's viability on the football field or as a draft prospect. The thousand phone calls and voicemails certainly give the impression he wasn't even embellishing when he talked about during the Heisman run-up what a "deep" relationship the two had. Clearly they did. And clearly whoever's voice that was on the other end sure does sound like a girl.

    It's bizarre and delicisous for the little drama queens that eat this stuff up (which means, pretty much everyone), but it has nothing to do with football. As a scout said recently if he's a 2nd round pick it's not because of this fake girlfriend business, it's because he's a slow inside linebacker.

    Although I'd disagree with that scout's take that Te'o is "slow".
    Really? You don't think that Te'o coming across in the very least, extremely gullible shouldn't effect his draft status? You also have to seriously question his intelligence and this is the guy you want leading your defense? Someone that not only fell for a hoax but made it sound as if an online girlfriend (real or unreal) was going to be his future wife? You don't think his future teammates aren't going to constantly screw with him over it?

    Yes I think even Ronaiah Tuiasasopu's lawyer pretty much implied exactly that. He claims it wasn't an attempt to scam anyone, it was a troubled young man trying to reach out to someone and communicate, blah blah blah. In other words, he's gay and had a crush on Manti Te'o.

    Yeah one of the immediate thoughts that comes to mind when you hear that woman's voice sounding very womanly, and then you see Ronaiah's lawyer trying to claim it was Ronaiah impersonating a woman...is that Ronaiah might be trying to cover for someone. He's a singer though...and he's got a high enough voice that he could try and impersonate a woman. So it's tough to say.

    LOL. No. No I don't agree with any of this at all.

    I guess it shouldn't surprise me, considering Janoris Jenkins still went in round 2 despite being a complete douchebag. I do find it interesting that they are now saying that Ronaiah is
    the gay one and that this was a ploy for him to be close to Manti. This just keep getting more and more entertaining...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    That, or Ronaiah is pretending to be gay in order to protect someone else. Family members of Ronaiah's are now saying the voice on those recordings is definitely Ronaiah's cousin Tino.

    The weirdest and most concerning thing about all this stuff is that men as a gender have almost no history of acting foolish about a woman. It's just all so strange...stock definitely down...
