I am only speculating but I think Manti Te'o could be involved in an elaborate cover-up. Manti Te'o could possibly be gay. I believe he created this online girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, two years ago, after a teammate accused of him being gay.
At that time, he wasn't a top draft pick or a national media sensation, so the idea seemed pretty harmless. But the problem is, when you create a lie; you have to keep the lie going.
I believe, pressure started to mount up by his family and teammates to finally meet who he called the "love of his life." Since he could not obviously produce this fictitious person he began to tell everyone that she was sick with leukemia. Then Te'o possibly decided the cancer story was not good enough so, he finally caved in and told everyone, including the national media, she had passed away.
If you put all the pieces together, and one would realize that Te'o made sure to get rid of this online girlfriend at the beginning of the football season. Notre Dame football was on a rise and undefeated, so more attention would definitely be coming his way. We also know that real girlfriends actually attend BCS National Championship games. Just ask AJ McCarron.
Unfortunately, you cannot be a known gay football player in today's society. All the of the former NFL players that have publicly came out, waited till after their playing days were over. His draft status could have been affected drastically if such a story surfaced.
Manti Te'o also has admitted to lying about this online relationship. He admitted that he told his father and other national media members that he met her. How could he possibly be so in love, when he has never even met her, hugged her, kissed her, cuddled her or even ran his fingers through her hair. Te'o claims he loves this woman so much, however he never visited her once in the hospital. Nor does he attend her funeral.
His story does not add up. Then Te'o proceeded to make another crucial mistake, stating he had a serious relationship with a female shortly after Lennay Kekua's death. I thought Te'o was grief stricken. Again, there are obvious holes and inconsistencies with his story.
I believe Manti Te'o could possibly be a homosexual. He comes from a very conservative, Mormon background which obviously, is a direct contradiction of a homosexual lifestyle.
Furthermore, why would a high profile, extremely popular college football player need to have an online girlfriend? Big time college football players usually don't have any difficulty finding women to date.
How would Te'o even have the time to have an online girlfriend with all the groupies waiting outside his dorm room, football games and practices, and academic work, and all these dramatic interviews he engaged in during the course of this season.
Te'o will not be drafted in the first round. He clearly lacks the intangibles to lead an NFL locker room. This hoax will ultimately cost him millions of dollars.
Manti Te'o is either a fraud or one of the dumbest, most naive persons in the entire world. If Te'o is indeed a fraud, he has learned from the best. Tiger Woods, Joe Paterno, Lance Armstrong, just to name a few...
Do You Believe Manti Te'o is Gay?
Another theory also arises after watching the Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Interview with Dr. Phil. Since Tuiasosopo could not reproduce Lennay Kekua voice, could it be possible that Manti Te'o was talking to Tuiasosopo the entire time? Phone records would prove the length of the conversation but not the actual recording. This would prove Te'o is gay and his boyfriend would take the hit. Or Tuiasosopo is lying yet again and conspired with a female accomplice. This female accomplice, who some relatives and friends have identified as Tuiasosopo's cousin, Tino, could have been the female voice of this hoax. Either way, this story continues to get more and more bizarre by the moment. I will definitely be watching Friday's interview part two and hopefully more of these questions will be answered.
The Manti Te'o Hoax story has finally came full circle. Ronaiah Tuiasosopo admitted and confirmed on Dr. Phil that he was the female voice behind Lennay Kekua. I was completely shocked, especially after independent voice experts from the FBI and Secret Service confirmed if it was, Tuiasosopo, the odds would be a one and ten million. Ultimately, Manti Te'o had a phone and online relationship with another man for the last three years.
This story went from being bizarre, to intriguing, to very sad. I feel sorry for Tuiasosopo. He also shared a dark secret from his past. Tuiasosopo was abused as a child, repeatedly by a family friend. I hope this young man can put this difficulty time behind him and rebuild his life. I will not be commenting on the Manti Te's hoax story anymore, and I think it's time we all move on. The show is over.
