A lover under the bus.
Or he's just taking the fall for his boyfriend? Who really knows, who really cares?
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I shouldn't have been so vague. I think we agree completely.
Thanks for the downvote.
Wasn't me. Ill upvote you brah.
Yep. 100's of hours of phone calls between the two. But how did he pull it off, the girlie voice to "fool" T'eo??? Oh, he was in the drama club....GAYDAR at defcon 5.....now it all makes sense.
I hold no hostility towards homosexuals, but fancy my nose to sniff them out second to none.
Anyone who takes one look at both of these Hawaiian fellers can just about close the book.
Why the theatrics? He could become a very wealthy gay icon.
Will roni come out and admit that he an gay'o were having an affair?
Nor do I. If they were an item, that's their business. But Manti obviously needed to keep things quiet, or so he felt. He's on the phone every night with Ronnie. His roomates had to have asked who he was always talking to? So they concoct a story. It's his girlfriend Lennay. Only she lives really far away. They'll buy that, for a while. But as it wore on, the lie got harder to keep going. How come she never comes to South Bend for a game? How come nobody has ever seen her?
So they kill her off and get the surprise, ancillary benefit of amazing publicity over brave and noble Manti playing thru all that grief and playing so well.
Then they broke up. Ronnie calls up and threatens to air their dirty laundry. Manti tells him to STFU, keep quiet and once he's drafted, you'll get paid. Only Deadspin f'd that up. Now both Ronnie and Manti have a vested interest in selling this b.s story about a hoax.
There was no hoax, just a relationship that one or both felt they couldn't be honest about. Sad really.
Oh, and how come they never Skyped or Face Timed?? Well, you can't have your roomate and buddy walk in and see that Lennay is really a Polynesian dude with a chin strat beard.
You, Sir, summed it up like the back of the book that will one day sell at Barnes.
Manti is the victim here
