Those are one in the same.
Notice how I didn't say he was in on it from the start? He was certainly in on the lie at some point though.
Lying or not setting the record straight about it because you are embarrassed you were duped is far from "in on it".
He kept the lie going well after he found out.
He knowingly talked about his "dead girlfriend" well after he realized he didn't have a dead girlfriend.
How is that not "in on it".
Take off the domer shades brah. It's time you guys stop putting this fool on a pedestal.
Correct, that is the Mad bro.
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
He was in on it.
Because "in on it" implies part of hoax, a planner, one of the members. He was the one being duped. He was hardly "in on it", yet didn't know he was duped at the same time. Has nothing to do with "domer shades" rather basic logic. You can believe he was in on it from the beginning, or that he was duped and lied once he found out, but it is counterintuitive to claim he didn't know he was being scammed, yet was "in on it".
there is no sense in going back and forth. they will believe what they want and so will we. One of us will look way better at the end of all this
After he found out he was getting scammed he continued to lie. That is the definition of "in on it'.
He also waited for someone else to blow the whistle on the story.
In on it.
Maybe not from the beginning, maybe not even for a long time. But he was in on it.
last word from me. "in on it" would not imply here.
I like you Irish, I'm just trying to understand.
How can you say a guy who continued to lie about something he knew was a lie was not "in on it".
Yep. Well the haters have already bailed on the original claims of being in on it from the beginning in order to somehow help win the Heisman. Now they are settling for..well he didn't hold a press conference and set the record straight as soon as he started to realize he was the victim of a hoax.
He continued to lie. It's not that he didn't set the record straight, he continued to lie.
very good post. at first it was all about how he was in on it to win heisman then that changed
On the 8th he claimed he was still not sure what was true. He received a phone call before he went to bed on the 6th from a person claiming to be Lelay and that she was not dead. What did he really know on the 8th? Was he being pranked by someone claiming to be his dead girlfriend or had he already figured it all out and knew he was duped from the beginning?
In the two interviews after that he never lied about her at all. In one he avoided the question, and in another he talked about how his teammates were there for him etc. That is not a lie, that really happened. I have no problem with him not setting the record straight before the NCG once he found out. Why do that right before the NCG? After the game he should have held a PC and explained what he knew...but that is far from "in on it".
did he tell a lie cause he was unsure what the fvck just happened.
was told his gf died then got a call saying she was alive...
what the hell would you say?
On the 8th he didn't know what was correct. Please quote what lie he told after that day.
No idea, but he didn't do anything. He continued to lie and play up the story.
In on it IMO.
We both have our views.
better way to say it than what I said...
Then he is officially the dumbiest person alive. He has lost MILLIONS in a matter of 1 month.
