Yesterday three voice-mails were released that were supposed to be Ronaiah Tuiasosopo using his altered voice pretending to be Lennay Kekua. Listening to those voice-mails it was very hard to believe that the voice belonged to Ronaiah. Manti Te’o himself told Katie Couric in her exclusive interview yesterday:
“Well, it didn’t sound like a man. It sounded like a woman,”
“If he somehow made that voice, that’s incredible, that’s an incredible talent to do that. Especially every single day. “
According to the New York Post, we now know that this voice was not Ronaiah, but his female cousin Tino Tuiasosopo.
A quote from a cousin of Ronaiah and Tino Tuiasosopo:
“There is no doubt whatsoever that it’s Tino.”
“That’s the way [Tino] cries when she’s feeling sorry for herself. Its her, that’s the voice.”
Tino, Ronaiah, nor his attorney were available for comment.
Its seems to me Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is hell bent on taking the rap for this and not bringing anyone down with him. If he is willing to protect his cousin with more lies, what else has he been lying about?
The tangled web of lies just keep getting messier and messier by the day. Hopefully, all parties involved know that the truth is going to come out eventually and that lies compounded on lies will only get you in more trouble.

In theory it shouldn’t matter if Te’o is gay or not. Fans and the NFL should more interested in if he can get off blocks, tackle NFL Running Backs and cover Tight Ends no pun intended.
But, because of the depth of his Catfish story it is legitimate question to ask because it would tie up a lot of loose ends, once again no pun intended.

As we digest the latest chapter in ‘As Manti Te’o Turns,’ I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of these staged interviews with the former Notre Dame All-American linebacker.
