Sounds like the perfect relationship to me. Now only if my wife would expect this from me.
I've been there at times. You have actually been a pretty good sport about this whole thing. I don't know if I could do anything different if it was a Bama player. Not much you can do but sit back and roll with the punches I guess.
Leppycole: Just stop, you've made it abundantly clear that you are a fvcking idiot. The details will all come out with every sports journalist in America trying to get to the bottom of this story now. Nothing you say is going to stop that. Everyone will know the truth soon enough.
I want to believe he got tricked just because lying about this shit iss effimg crazy. just don't think he is thst stupid though

Wait! What? A little under a year ago there were people by the masses on their knees in front of a statue crying their eyes out on PSU's campus. & ND's a cult? Joe Pa was Kim Jong Il & that campus & the area around was North Korea. That is hilarious. You do realize that if he was still alive he would have more than likely been indicted for lying to a grand jury. You guys rioted for this guy, who covered for a child rapist & still stand up for him. Now as far as Te'o goes, he may be involved, he may not be. One thing for sure is he's stupid & if he is involved he is a low life & I will be the first to say it. But for PSU people of all people to point fingers is just hilarious. Anything to find a way to deflect from what happened there I guess.
Big John has a point on that one. I'm going to leave the rape and whatnot out of it, but he certainly has a point in his defense against the "cult" attitude toward a PSU fan claiming the same of his fanbase.
Hell, our fanbase has the same issues when it comes to our program as well so I'm not pointing fingers. Just saying that you shouldn't throw stones when you live in a glass house.

Thank you RATT. I just found it hilarious coming from a PSU fan. If in fact Te'o is involved he needs to man up apologize & give back the awards he won & make amends in the best way he can figure out. & if ND is in any way involved then they should have to take their medicine as well.
Big John, I'm going to post what I just did in another thread just so you know my thoughts on this. I blasted PSU as a school A LOT MORE than I will Notre Dame for the reasons I'm about to re-post. With PSU it was heads of institutions involved in a coverup. I don't blame Notre Dame as an institution at all for this.
I feel that this is one of those situations that I have argued with people that you have to separate from the university or program that you root for.
I have no worse of an opinion of Notre Dame over this then I did before I knew what happened. It's not the universities fault. They weren't paying the kid to come to their school, they weren't giving him any benefits over this for sure. I mean this goes on the kid completely.
I won't argue with a Notre Dame fan over this unless he wants to argue about the issue itself. If you want to back up, or I guess anyone else that wants to back him up, then I'm going to argue with you about the situation. I think Notre Dame fans need to realize this. We aren't coming after your program. We want to know what the kid did and fill in the holes. It seems to me like a bunch of Notre Dame fans think that most of us are taking it personal against their football program.
Maybe some are, but for me personally, I don't blame the institution for one iota of this other than letting him continue the BS after they knew what was going on. This still shouldn't be a black eye on their school. This is something that Te'o is going to have to deal with on his own. God bless ND for trying to help him as much as they can, but this was his own doing and had nothing to do with the school.
I agree on all accounts.
You don't have an online relationship with someone for over 3 years and never meet, or at worst Skype.
I agree. Anyone to fall for this is pretty dense imo.
john, he wasn't pointing fingers, he was making a joke. The reason he put "cult" in quotes is because that is what people were calling us a year ago. That went WAY over your head.
I guess that one went over my head too. Like I said, funny coming from a PSU fan. You guys really don't have a finger to point seeing as what took transpired for a decade. Every scandal from here on out will be compared & pail in comparison. I think you guys should sit this one & every other one from here on out. Although I must say, I still don't think that it was an NCAA issue & the sanctions are sh!t. But still.
It did. He is giving Leppy a hard time because Leppy has been an ass to us this past year, going so far as to make things up to make the Sandusky story even worse than it was. Then, when we would be like "that's BS" he would just go off about how we were a cult. And just to let you know, Leppy lives in State College so he has an extra hatred towards PSU.
Just look at the message after the "Cult member" post... he said they should tear Te'o's statue down. JT is clearly just having some fun at Leppy's expense.
My bad bro. I get it know. My bad. That did go over my head big time.
NP, I know you are good people. We (PSU fans) have been sarcastic about the "cult" thing and our "cultural issue" for awhile now.
It did mine as well.
Shit happens I guess.
Unless you are an idiot or in on it. To be fair, maybe he did meet a woman, but she may have been a fake from the perp

He didn't meet anyone. He got trolled hard by a USC fan and then was too embarassed to come clean when he found out about it. He was also too embarassed to tell people that they never met, so he made some BS up about seeing her in person. It's as simple as that.
As more comes out, I don't think he had any alterior motive... the kid was just embarassed. He has no common sense, apparently.
That seems to be one possible explanation. I don't think you can say for certain either way though.
Yeah, I'm not 100% sure, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was more to it than that. It just seems like a very plausable answer.
How do you know the perp is a USC fan? I think his father played FB at USC. But wasn't the perp related to Teo? Cousin?
The perps father running a church and perp being church band leader is a fun little aspect to the story. These do not seem to be the acts of a churchy person
The guy showed up to the ND/USC game and took a picture with one of Te'o's supporters while wearing a red and gold scarf and merely holding a ND shirt. Dude was trollin and forgot about his scarf.
Optimus Primal has weighed in. I'm starting to believe the Domers, Te'o got duped.
