The only people concerned with crap like this are those who think Americans were killed in some foreign country by a guy named Ben Gazzi.

This is ridiculous. It's not like he was caught DOPING. Personally, I don't care where he gets his inspiration; His grandma, faux girlfriend, faux boyfriend as long as he gets his knuckles on the ground and play to win. Damn, do we now have to investigate every aspect of an athletes life? If it's not pertaining to the game, who cares?

Manti Te'o's bizarre soap opera moves the school's president to tears, while Lizzy Seeberg's suicide is ignored

Less than a day into the Manti Te’o revelations, we’ve heard more about a fake dead girlfriend of a Notre Dame football player than a real dead girl. Lizzy Seeberg committed suicide, not long after being intimidated by Notre Dame football players for reporting a sexual assault by one of their teammates. A second woman who was taken to the hospital for a rape exam declined to formally accuse another Notre Dame football player after getting a series of bullying texts from players.

The handful of people who immediately took note of the contrast in the attention — both by the press and by the university — are absolutely right to be angry. But no one should be surprised.

Lot's of them in Carson, Calif, just like Teo

Football players tend to be dumb

Norte Dame like many Universities are gross enablers, how in the hell could this guy graduate in anything even at Cal-State Dominguez, much less Norte Dame

NFL needs to shun him, but they don't give a shit, all about winning

> Add to that all the cover-ups of rapes, and child molesting, big money gifts to football players, thievery of football games, and pulling the wool over the eyes of the national sports media that takes place in South Bend. Skullduggery at it's finest! The shame of it all! Oh, sorry, The Coach forgot ... there is no such thing as shame in South Bend.

Notre Dame itself probably set this hoax up to keep that 'tard filled with hope and manage the media sad-story to maximize university exposure
