The NFL Pro Shop Can't Fit Michael Hoomanawanui's Name On His Jersey

Poor Michael Hoomanawanui. If any family members or fans want to show their support and buy the tight end's jersey from the NFL Pro Shop, it might be a couple letters short of his actual last name. For some reason, the previewed jersey can't fit Hoomanawanui's full last name.

Now, the jersey-makers clearly go all out for Michael on the field, but since he's a third-string tight end on the Patriots right now, maybe the demand for accuracy (or Michael Hoomanawanui jersey) isn't there.

LaRod Stephens-Howling and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie get their total names on their jerseys. Does the hyphen exempt them from surname butchering? Jarrod Saltalamacchia's in the New England area. Maybe the two can arrange a Saltalamacchia-Hoomanawanui empathy summit.
