We got our first Asian. Think he's a mutt though .
Good ST player. And better be the last ST player we sign.

Not quite sure why anyone would even say something so stupid.

From what I've been reading, his whole family is big into judo, including his mom who's said to be a black belt and his sister who's a national champ.


Let's hope he can teach Martin some "wax on...wax off".

LOL, polynesians say hi.


Eh, depends on the difference between 'race and 'ethnicity'

Polynesians are asian, they just live on an island and have a different culture than mainland asians.

Just like Native Americans and Native Mexicans are the same race, but have two totally different cultures, and live on two different sides of an imaginary line.

Native Hawaiians can trace they're ancestory back to Japan, but Japanese are considered Asian and Hawaiians are considered Pacific Islanders.

It is just semantics. Pacific islanders have more of a cultural difference than an ethinic difference with "mainland' asians. Sorry, I know this isnt important, but I have a pet peeve of people telling me I am wrong when I am not.


I am glad we signed Nakamura. He has learned from the all time best.

Actually Polynesia is more a part of what is considered Oceania. Oceania includes Australia, New Zealand, Polynesia, Samoa, Fiji. The natives in Hawaii can trace their roots to these islands which broke off from Pangaea like a fuging billion years ago. So you are wrong.

kind of a tangent here- but I'm a little confused as to why everyone was freaking out about what JR said about Sherrod, my guess is that it was one of those times where by NOT saying anything about him, he was implying that he sucked. Am I right on this? I get a feeling Rivera isn't a big fan, based on how much he raved about Pugh during training camp

Back on the subject. This is a cool signing! As mentioned before, hopefully we has learned being behind Ed Reed. I love the confidence he has in himself. Not just because this signing, but I think our defense will be better as a whole at least I am hoping.We were a couple games out of the playoffs last season but I am positive we will return this upcoming season. Excited to see what we will do in the draft!

Apparently he's injury prone, but has looked pretty solid outside of that.

A guy that possibly has potential, I like mind this signing.
