    Anyone who doesn't tell Donald Trump to fuck himself isn't doing their job.

    I'm pretty sure that Gawker media is founded by a sociopath and run and operated by sociopaths.

    A legitimate news organization shouldn't tell anyone to go fuck himself.

    The dude probably made up a fake, sick girlfriend to have an excuse to get out of tests and stuff. Somehow, it got out to the media and then he was stuck with it. Big deal.

    My guess would be everyone who bought into the lie, potential future employers, the media outlets he duped, and those of us blessed with a penchant for schadenfreude.

    jeez, everywhere I go online this is a story so I can't ignore it :brick:

    so do I understand this correctly, the guy is a good college football player, his cousin or something is now admitting to making up this girlfriend that Teo claimed to have? But did they use a girl to fake being his girlfriend (they went out on dates, hooked up etc) or was this all pen pal type shit? Because if he never met this "girlfriend" and this was all online and on the phone, to me that is 100x worse.

    i think Lance Armstrong was behind the hoax because he knew he was gonna need something to take a bit of the heat off him after the Oprah thing

    Soccer fan?

    To put it in perspective, this would be like if Pele were discovered to be drinking Sunny Delight from a Tang bottle and claiming he didn't know that it had been switched, even though a donkey could tell the difference. or something...

    Ive concluded that the only path for Manti to salvage his reputation is to come out of the closet, whether hes actually a gay or not.

    Had you said Gordie Howe you might have had me.

    I guess I just don't understand the media obsession with a college kid and his girlfriend - imaginary or not. As near as I can tell (and I haven't read much) he did nothing illegal or in any way compromised his school or team. So, duped or a hoax, why would anyone give a shit other than as a WTF human interest story. But leading every news outlet for a week? Crazy.

    I also hate the fact that this is bringing more attention to that fucking idiotic Catfish movie (OMG - people on the interweb are not who they say they are!) and its producers.
