This entire situation is downright stupid and pointless. Leave the damn man alone, for cryin' out loud. This has gone waaaaaaaaaaaaay too far. And I've NEVER used that many "a"s in the word "way."

I don't care about the truth or the lies, and I don't think anyone else should.

Has any of your family or friends suffered from cancer? Would you be so eager to dismiss this sick hoax if they had? Try to see things from someone else's perspective and than judge. I think it's blatantly obvious that this kid was, at the very least, involved in this hoax. He deserves everything he gets and more.

I am a bit stunned to see a pro sports scandal discussion on an Anime website.. but hey why not..

As for the whole thing the whole hoax was just in such bad taste its hard to believe it is even a thing.. but if we are going to talk about it I would just toss in the following..

- For all the discussion about who did fake him out if that was the case why is it no one seems motivated to even look for them?

- Correct me if I am wrong but I am pretty sure a few places had him on record as saying he spent time with this pretend gf if so his whole "I am totally surprised by this" is complete bs

Idiot is what he is. How can you "date" someone for so long and 1.) never meet in person and 2.) never video chat? This entire story is just plain bizarre. The guy needs to head back to Hawaii and try to get his life back together. I don't feel bad for him as it was his fault but I also don't wish ill will poor dude either.

I think he's very smart. Think about it. He fooled everyone into believing a total lie. A person that can maintain a lie like that has to be a genius.

I'll just say that whether he was part of the hoax or not, Te'o is downright stupid. Whatever goes on in his NFL career, cool whatever. But this guy is a gullible fool whether he thought we would believe his story or if he believed in Lennay/Roniaiah in the first place. And in his story, never MEETING or SEEING this girlfriend. Especially since he admitted fibbing about some parts for people to hear the story.

Anyway, this doesn't affect any of our lives. This guy will still play in the NFL and play well like it or not. But this whole hoax situation has been BS from the beginning.

I guess but this is exactly why I prefer to not lie, it's a hell of a lot less to remember.

I thought I read that it was his dad who said they spent time together, but I could be wrong.

There's also a possibility that he claimed to have spent time with her because his teammates were giving him shit about never seeing her with him, and Te'o being a big man on campus football player, was too embarrassed about having an "internet girlfriend" to admit it so he claimed to have spent time with her as a way to get them off his back. It's a lie, but not nearly as bad as him making the whole thing up.

That's true. Maintaining a lie is very difficult.

He's not smart. He gets caught up in his lies and he can't keep his story straight. One, he says he's MET his ''imaginary'' girlfriend. Two, he says he KNEW about the hoax since Dec. 6th and continued with the story! This kid is an idiot but the media is spinning this in his favor because, OH, the coaches and staff believe his story. NO SHIT! His families emotional and heartfelt press releases, pfft. C'monnnn, this kid is neck deep in his own shit but the media still can't smell it, or more than likely, refuse to.

Personally this is what I chalk it up to. As a devote mormon he probably was a bit hesitant to jump into a relationship in high school just because of the fact that high school relationships are driven by sex. He entered an online relationship so he could confidently say he was taken and also fill that need to fit in. As the years went on and the conversations got longer the relationship felt more real. Embarrassed that he felt the way he felt about someone he had never met, he lied to his friends and family. Up until the lie was exposed to him he was a victim. After he found out it was a hoax and lied about it in December he was a perpetrator. None of this really matters, being caught up in this scandal shouldn't affect him as a linebacker. If his draft value drops the team in the early teens that picks him up is lucky, because they just got a steal.
