Sorry for the guy who might've lied about a dead girlfriend to make people feel bad for him?

While there is a very small chance he got tricked and just inflated his long distance relationship with this 'girl' the more you think about it the harder that is to believe.

He knew the guy behind the fake account and the relationship went on for that long without him getting suspicious about never being able to see her in person or even talk to her over the phone?

Still to be completely fair it sounds as if the guy behind the account went to some lengths to create this person and get pictures on an account that wasn't public or whatever. Weird and definitely when combined with his performance in the Bowl game his draft stock has taken a serious hit.

You'd think he would be swimming in puss and would have no reason to lie :lol:




In all seriousness, this is a ****bag move and shows a lack of maturity on his part. His draft stock is definitely falling. Its bad enough we have a slimy coach here, we don't need slimy LB's in addition to that.

Can you imagine the hell he is going to go through on game day in the NFL? He is going to get trash-talk like "I slept with your girlfriend last night and she gave me a nice imaginary BJ"

No. Manti and his close friend Tuiasasopo cooked this whole thing up to get Heisman consideration and increase his draft status. Manti said he met this chick in person in 2009 and that they spent time together in Hawaii and in South Bend. Now he is saying that he never met her as it was all online.

Insane.

Never in my life have I seen anything like this. Check out this development to the story...

Reagan Mauia, an Arizona Cardinals fullback, said he believes Kekua existed because he met her in person when he and other Polynesian teammates and Pittsburgh Steelers star Troy Polamalu went to do charity work in American Samoa in June 2011. “This was before her and Manti,” Mauia said Wednesday evening. “I don’t think Manti was even in the picture, but she and I became good friends. We would talk off and on, just checking up on each other kind of thing. I am close to her family. When she was going through the loss of her father, I was — I offered a comforting shoulder and just someone to bounce her emotions off. That was just from meeting her in Samoa.” Mauia said Tuiasosopo — whom Mauia believes is Kekua’s cousin — introduced the two. After the initial meeting, Mauia said he met her at an “after-party” for all of the athletes involved in the camp. “She was tall,” he said. “Volleyball-type of physique. She was athletic, tall, beautiful. Long hair. Polynesian. She looked like a model … ” He said it is his understanding that Kekua’s mother is operating her Twitter account. He said he’d never met her mother. When told by a reporter that she apparently might not have existed, Mauia said “No, she is real.”

Does this idiot think this chick is real or is he part of the big Te'o cover up? :lol:

There is a very in-depth article on http://deadspin.com front page. Make sure to click on the "read more" link. The guys at deadspin really dug this out. Seems that not only is Manti and friend Tuiasasopo invloved, but several other family members, including the Arizona player. Unbelievable the depths people will go to for attention and money.

I don't see a reason why he would hoax this...If he was gay or something it would make sense....but still...Why? He had to know...A 3 year relationship where you never met the girl?

It definitely looks like he was in on it.

The only that may cast doubt was the bit where the friend got pictures of the girl that he was pretending to be. I'm not really sure why he did that. He either has horrible judgement as he is so easily duped or he did all this as a publicity stunt to get the Heisman either way though he's no longer a sure thing first round pick.

That's one reason. A second would be the attention. Helped his heisman campaign in a sick way

If he never met her then why in the world would there be all this drama when she "died"?

Who in the world would act that way?

The school didnt know he never met her? No one ever saw her but thought it was normal?

He had to be in on it IMO.

It was a 3+ year hoax. Way before any potential Heisman consideration. So how did it help?


For over three years, this kid who became a star player at Notre Dame, declined dates with real girls because he had a fake Internet girlfriend? Weird.

Why didnt he once visit her after her horrible car accident?

Why didnt he once visit her as she lay on her hospital bed dying from lukemia?

But see that's the thing, he said in an article that he met her and touched her. His father even posted somewhere (I read his statement yesterday) that Manti did meet this girl on numerous occasions. I think he said she came to Hawaii to see him.

Man, what a weird lie....

I really wonder how much this is going to hurt his draft stock. Teams are going to look at him as a lier now. Questionable charataer (SP?)

I bet he drops off of a few teams draft board completley
