    This is just a glorious story that gets better every day. Everyone and their sister are lying. There are lies built on half truths and lies based on previous lies. New, and different lies from the previous day.

    Its got reporters running for the hills. Its got universities in full panic. Its got private investaigators. Its got NFL players saying they actually did meet the fake girl and guys pretending to be women and then the next day having cousins revealed as part of the conthing.

    I am in love with this non sense.

    Maybe Jerry Seinfeld could finally find a resurrection (where he is actually funny again) with a Seinfeld style 2 hour feature "based on a true story" feature presentation. Call it "No sex and videotape, but lots of lies."

    Hey, hey, hey. There are a lot of falsehoods being spread around in this thread and the worst of which is that Seinfeld isn't funny. I guess you haven't checked out Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee?

    You know, I didn't care at all about this guy's dead girlfriend until this story broke after the season. Now I'm with you in being very interested in every detail. I guess I love catching people in a lie more than the touchy, feely stuff

    Well, the dead girl is fake, that automatically gives it a massive advantage in entertainment value over stories where real people die. And you can still find someone to feel bad for if you're really determined, but there's no guilt for not bothering with that. Then there's the mystery/suspense element, a little bit more keeps coming out each day and we don't know and get to eagerly await what's coming next. Add in the big giant bonus of the sports media ending up looking foolish, and it's almost an ideal sports soap opera story.

    According to Florio, NFL teams are not convinced that Teo is not gay and that they're trying to discern that before deciding on whether to draft him. Basically a lot of teams would be hesitant to bring in an opening gay guy and the ensuing baggage that'd entail.

    Silly me, I thought the most important thing about a potential draft pick would be whether he can inflict pain and suffering on opponents and understand a complicated playbook.

    That probably is the most important thing but with all the intangibles they look into at the combine, it doesn't surprise me that they delved into this one

    Yeah lots of interesting questions being asked during the combine which supports this story. Do you have a GF? and Do you like girls? were asked of players by a few teams. NFL needs to clean that up beofre getting hit with a nice lawsuit.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    For three hours on Sunday, Monday, now Thursday I agree. But the reality is players are around their teammates 6-7 days a week. It will take a strong individual to be an openly gay as well as a handful of strong teammates.
