    And here I was thinking that the name Manti Te'o is Hawaiian for "Missed Tackle".

    I see his point. I don't remember manti being "bowled over" in the game. He was, however, exposed and blown by several times. The paper should fix their error!

    Luckily for The Star.... they will never have another reason to run a story on the most overrated player in football this year. 2nd place in the Heisman, what a joke. He was schooled all night by Bama; although I will say when it comes to tackling air he proved to be the best ever.

    Do they have sour grapes in Hawaii? Way to drag your son, who from all the mainland people have seen is a fairly respectable kid, down to the depths of crybaby.

    Unfortunately the media isn't in the business of making genuine friendships and have no loyalties. When Mr. Te'o was giving out interviews, photo's and such (because his son was doing great). The media was more than likely his best friend. Mr. Te'o just didn't realize they didn't care on bit about his son, his "great story" and the like. They just wanted to sell newspapers. So, when his son got his jock strapped yanked down in front of the world and exposed for what he really was, which was an overrated LB. The media jumped on the other side of the fence and took advantage of the situation. Hence the photo.

    Mr. Te'o needs to grow up.

    100+ tackles his sophomore-senior year.

    His dad is an intense guy, but Manti and the Te'o's have brought an UNBELIEVABLE amount of scouts back to their native soil. Marcus Mariotta may not have gotten the amount of recruiting he did if it weren't for Manti, and he has said as such. Look at Savineiia (spelling?) this year. They have done so much for that community and for that paper, so I do see his point.

    Then again, once you thrust yourself into the spotlight, you should be able to take the criticism.

    They seem like a great family who do wonderful things for their community. But when it comes to stardom, you better have a ton of thick skin and have an understanding that everybody doesn't have pure motives.

    What error? I guess the truth hurts. If you want the accolades when times are good you must expect to be slighted when things go wrong.

    I agree. Manti played horribly in the NCG, and many people, including likely the author of that paper, were angry with his performance.

    In the NFL they love you and hate you each and every week, and you have to be able to take it. Unless your Peyton Manning. Media loves you no matter what.
