You actually think people in the huddle are going to worry about him being duped vs leading the team on the field defensively? You cant be serious.
I think teammates will give him a hard time about it...and clown on him. I think it will be in the back in their minds, sure. Locker rooms can be harsh as hell.
No one gave Ray any flak because murder is serious shit...but just like Ray, if Manti were to be the leader on a SB winning team, it would probably erase everyone's thoughts on him and his invisible girlfriend.
