Manti Te'o: all this fuss to cover his being gay
We keep hearing how strange and stranger this story gets regarding Manti Te'o's non-existent girl friend who was the love of his life. It's not strange at all if we consider the possibility that answers almost every weird question: he fabricated a girl friend to cover up the fact that he is gay.
Manti Te'o has a lot to lose if he's outed as a homosexual. Nobody in the NFL is gay, at least not that we know of. Should the facts come to light, there goes the huge bucks that being a top draft pick would bag.
And what about his family gushing over the ghost girl friend, telling everybody they met her? They would know about Manti's sexual orientation, and are aware that they need to play ball in this masquerade in order to cash in on his football career themselves.
So far, all of this checks out in filling in the holes in this story.
He's a good looking guy, got everything going for him, but no girl friend in sight. What's up with that? Did you notice how many hot chicks that Johnny Football has been seen with since his Heismann? And how about A.J. McCarron's latest squeeze, Miss Alabama? Colin Klein? Married. But zilch girls with Manti. Zip, nada in the babe department.
It's quite likely that Notre Dame is in on the gay Manti Te'o story as well and sat on the news also, as it would not help their program to have this come out, much akin to the Penn State mess. No, they can't have that, bad for recruiting, etc., and are sticking with Manti's story about being 'catfished,' bamboozled, duped and fooled.
This is the most likely story here: Manti Te'o is gay, and will soon be expected to start wearing some arm candy, and so we come up with a far away, unreachable 'girl friend,' and everything is solved. Then the girl croaks, and Manti pines away for years over the loss of his soul mate. See how this works out?
The only problem with this theory is that since it's a conspiracy, eventually somebody rats out the scheme for the money, and that would likely entail the male love interest in Manti's life. So far, silence from the boyfriend.
But it's only a matter of time before we meet Manti Te'o's true love interest.
