Manti Te'o is upset at Honolulu newspaper for printing photo of son missing a tackle

Manti Te'o's Father Wants You To Unsubscribe From The Honolulu Star-Advertiser Because It Printed A Picture Of His Son Missing A Tackle

Brian Te'o, the father of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, isn't too happy with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser right now. This coming after the newspaper decided to include a photo of his son missing a tackle during the Irish's BCS National Championship loss to Alabama. The image also ran under a headline reading "Bowled Over."

The elder Te'o took to the Manti Te'o "Official" Fan Club on Facebook to voice his displeasure.

Sure, the defeat was probably painful, but I doubt anyone in South Bend will be cancelling their subscription to the Star-Ledger. Especially considering the fact that nobody in the state of Indiana owns a subscription.

Nevertheless, it is hard to blame the editors too much. They didn't have much to work with. They did, however, have plenty of pictures of missed Notre Dame tackles to use, though.
