    Very well said gentlemen.
    Much more interesting, IMO, than guys lifting weights in Indianapolis right now.
    A fine line perhaps, because some Americans are still too sensitive, but those 2 posts just showed a very intelligence conversation can take place with no problems or insults, accusations, etc.

    Now back to the 6 prospects I mentioned: I'd like any of those guys to play in a Packer uniform, as I made each of their cases.
    None of them are Asian or Latino however. :laugh: Had they been Asian, I suspect the media would have mentioned it a la Jeremy Lin and Dat Nguyen when he played.

    Or Indian, as when Brandon Chillar was in the NFL. I find nothing racist in anyone mentioning that as they did/do, but TJV, you would if I noted it? Hines Ward? His racial makeup was noteworthy. Why?

    What about when they always mention about black head coach or QB doing this or that? Dungy, Tomlin, first black HC to win Super Bowl, etc.. Doug Williams the only black QB to win a Super Bowl, still to this date.

    BTW, I read something about Delmas yesterday that his knee issues might be chronic.... that's not a guy you can afford to invest big $ long term at, if true.
    Ironic since he's the one who tried to take out the knees of Finley & Vick before, and DID end Ovie Mughelli's career by blindly smashing his shoulder pads/helmet into his ACL.

    While there is some truth to the differences between racial constitutions that may give a biological advantage, for the most part its negligible and not worth talking about. It's usually a good natured joke with no ill behind it in cases such as the op.
