Agreed. I think ND is trying to cover several butts at one time here. Te’o should come clean, but if he is a magic underwear guy that is batting for the other team, not happening. Interesting to see what kind of spin he will try to put on the whole mess. Staying tuned.

Sort of a mean-spirited broad brush wasn’t it?

That was exactly what I was thinking but you seem to be the only one that posted about it. Obama did a much worse lie and it gets no traction.

Of course Manti Te’o was in on the fraud. He is not victims since HE told The South Bend Tribune” that he had met her, and his family is on record saying she visited them in Hawaii.

Mormonism is based on a fraud and on a per capita basis, Utah has far more financial fraud than any other state.

Okay, so we revisit the Romney Mormon “problem” here. How about this? Having lived in SoCal since the age of five, I am a long time supporter of the Trojans. But you have a coach who is a total fraud who destroyed the football program at USC. How can you support him? Have you written criticism of him as being a fraud? Or do you support him because you are a homey? What if Pete were a Mormon? Would you still support your team?

Well, if he is by some chance not a fraud, he is the biggest twerp ever known. And, I am not buying that.

Whatever the outcome, he will forever be tied to this deal. He should just come clean, be humble and give reasons why he did what he did. Or didn’t do.

“I find the whole story just ridiculous and my girlfriend Kate Upton agrees.”

Me and my wife, Morgan Fairchild, whom I’ve seen naked, agree! Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Maybe; but if a person is DECEIVED by MORMONism; it ain't much of a leap to be deceived by an ONLINE girlfriend; is it?

We DO?

It appears that the old "Look over THERE!" tactic is being recycled.

I thought this crap would stay in religion, not this story and this thread. Some people on this forum make me want to vomit.

HMMmm...

I'd think you'd have developed a stronger stomach for this stuff by now. When a 'story' like this breaks, EVERYTHING in the poor fellows past (and present) is up for discussion.

That's interesting.

Are you one who thinks that ALL religions are ok and that NO one should point out the flaws that are seen in them?

Some serious ass-covering from ESPN on this. Ted Miller’s article is especially pathetic, claiming that Te’o’s interview yesterday basically proves that he’s innocent. A lot of things in that interview stood out, such as Teo’s apparent incuriousness as to who the other two hoax participants were (Tuiasosopo allegedly told Te’o there was another man and another woman involved in the hoax). I know that if somebody had done that to me, I would definitely want to know who did it. Also, the fact that it didn’t occur to him to visit his dying love-of-his-life girlfriend in the hospital apparently didn’t raise any red flags with Ted Miller, cretin extraordinaire.

They are portraying this as the worst thing a college football player has done. Worse than taking money, steroids, drugs, DUI, Rape. 5 years with no bowl games?

With the exception of rape, everything you listed is the type of bad mistake that a basically decent person could make and still rebound from with their integrity mostly intact. This hoax on the other hand is something that can and should define Te'o for the rest of his life. You have to be a sociopathic lowlife to engage in a fraud of this nature.

Is your entire life about attacking Mormons? How many hours a day? 4? 6? 8? 10? If only you could earn a living doing it.
