If he did get duped I kind of feel bad for him, even though he is a big MLB, he is still a youngster...he brought this on himself though, he could have told the media the truth from the get go...

No excuse for a high profile sports athlete to get duped by a net chick they never met by claiming "girlfriend/boyfriend". Sorry. No logic involved whatsoever.

Wow. RT @TheBigLead: Confirmed from 2 sources: ESPN has known about Manti Te'o story for 10 days.

Just more proof ESPN is nothing more than an agenda driven spin machine rather than an actual news outlet.

Te'o was clearly in on the whole thing. His parents said she visited him in Hawaii and he told the South Bend Tribune that they met in Palo Alto. Now he's just trying to save face by saying he was the victim of a hoax.

I bet he goes undrafted, or goes very late. Who's gonna want this guy? He's not even that great of a player. He got his ass kicked in the national championship. Couldn't get off blocks and missed a shitload of tackles.

the only way for his explanation to make sense is if he felt so embarassed by being in a relationship with a girl online he felt like he had to embellish the relationship to make it appear authentic

but seems like a stretch. I find it hard to believe he was just duped

There were never any photos of them together either. Usually people with strong bonds would have at least one photo together.

NFL player marketing agent: Te'o will lose $350K to $500K in pre-draft marketing deals. "His brand just took a dive."
