    The 2006 Dolphins, coached by Nick "The Caste Prick" Saban, proudly opened the season with 1 white starter out of 22 and a total of 10 whites on the 53 man roster, ranking with Jacksonville's annual squad as the blackest in NFL history. Saban mercifully is now gone and the '07 Dolphins are a little bit better from a demographic standpoint.


    New head coach Cam Cameron wisely parted ways with "C-Pep" and now veteran Trent Green is the starting quarterback, with 25 year old rookie John Beck from BYU being groomed to replace him. Green has had an outstanding career once he became a starter, but the vicious concussion he suffered in the opener of the '06 season may have prematurely ended his reliably outstanding productivity.


    Miami's all-black offensive lines have been disasters, but the '07 season opens with but one white starter, though this could be a line in flex all season. Ninth year man Chris Liwienski starts at left guard. He and Green are the only white starters on offense.


    Gene Mruczkowski and Chris Lekkerkerker are backup linemen. Lekkerkerker's name is a constant source of amusement for white announcers, who don't dare to poke fun at the many Samoans and native Africans in the NFL with "funny" surnames.


    Justin Peelle is the second tight end and sees the field a fair amount.


    WR Greg Camarillo was picked up after being waived by the Chargers but he's currently buried on the depth chart.


    On defense there are two white starters -- Zach Thomas just turned 34 and in his 12th season, but is still one of the very best inside linebackers in the business. He stands an excellent shot at being one of the very few whites who aren't quarterbacks who will be enshrined at the Hall of Fame in the next generation after his career is over.


    Third year end Matt Roth from Iowa is starting for the first time and should be a standout.


    There are two white backup linemen -- tackle Chase Page and end Rob Ninkovich, a talented second year end from Purdue who was picked up after being waived by the Saints.


    Backup safety Cameron Worrell is used mostly as a Special Teams Demon.


    NUMBER OF WHITE STARTERS: 4


    APPROXIMATE NUMBER OF WHITE PLAYERS ON 53 MAN ROSTER: 15


    GRADE: F+

    MIAMI--Searching for answers after his team's 0-4 start, Dolphins coach Cam Cameron is said to be "seriously considering" holding daily practice sessions between games. The result would be better-prepared players and a game plan designed specifically to counter the strengths and weaknesses of each individual opponent.

    "Whatever we're doing just isn't working, and it's up to me as the head coach to get us on the right track," said Cameron, following his team's 35-17 loss to the Raiders. "Unfortunately, the only way to do that may be to get everybody - coaches and players - to come in here four or fives times a week to watch film and practice playing football. Obviously this team can't handle the responsibility of preparing for the games on their own."

    Among the many benefits of daily practices, says Cameron, will be the ability of the coaches to communicate the game plan to the players.

    "Getting together in between games will allow us to tell the players directly what they're supposed to do when they take the field," he said. "Then when Sunday rolls around and they are on the field, they can think back to practice and apply what they learned there. We can also have them do push ups and jumping jacks and stuff to build up their stamina. If that doesn't work, I don't know what to do. Honestly, I'll be out of ideas."

    Currently, the Dolphins strategy is to meet every Sunday morning for breakfast and a brief introduction to that week's opponent. A team prayer follows and then the players take the field and begin stretching exercises.

    During the game, Cameron and the rest of his coaches scream out instructions while the play is in progress.

    "It's a different strategy than what I'm used to," said quarterback Trent Green. "On my old team, the coaches would give me a play that I had practiced dozens of times and I would execute it. With Cam, he just screams 'Hike!' and then says 'Throw it to the tight end!' or 'Hand it to Ronnie!' or 'Run for your life!' As a player, it gets extremely confusing. On the other hand, it's nice not to have to go to practice. We practiced every day in Kansas City last year and it was a big f**king waste of time."

    On the defensive side of the ball, the Dolphins are in shambles. The Raiders rushed for 299 yards on Sunday against the normally stout Miami defense, with second stringer Justin Fargas rumbling for a career-high 174. Could regularly-scheduled practices be the answer for the beleaguered unit?

    "I would be open to practicing once in a while," said linebacker Joey Porter. "When I was with Pittsburgh, we would do it all the time, and we would also play these little practice games where we would pretend it was Sunday and execute the game plan in like a dress rehearsal type thing. Don't get me wrong. It's not a cure-all for our problems, but at least we'll have some idea what we're doing out there. In fact, if we start practicing, I guarantee Justin Fargas will run for less than 174 yards next time he faces us. And you can print that."

    Dolphins signed DT Sam Rayburn and released DB Lamont Thompson.

    Thompson's career has downhill in a hurry. Rayburn adds depth at end and on the nose with Vonnie Holliday and Rodrique Wright both a bit banged up.

    finally someone gives big Sam a shot!

    Remember all the fans angry at the Dolphins during the draft for skipping Brady Quinn? [​IMG]

    They assured each other, "Cam must know what he is doing." [​IMG]

    Cam Cameron doesn't even make the players practice? They show up on Sunday to discuss the team? How does Miami win at all with this mentality?

    It still boggles my mind that the 06 Dolphins had 21 black starters.

    They were also the worst team that year, which probably led ESPN and SI to cancel their planned story on how blacks had finally and rightfully completely taken over one entire NFL team, with more soon to come.

    Presumably, there were also to have been later calls for a black head coach. After all, when every single player is black, why not the coach too? That stands to reason, at least in the black ball era.

    It's incredible how little the sports media has commented on the contrast between the Dolphins versus the Patriots and Colts. The silence is completely by design I'm sure, as all analysts certainly note the racial dynamics and are disappointed that things are going exactly backwards.

    Haha, I know man. It's just too funny how these coaches and GM's never learn from the Pats and Colts. The loser franchises like Miami, Arizona, and Jacksonville have won NOTHING in decades.

    White players = championships

    Black players = under-achieving, overrated, wanna-be-criminals, dog-fighting, primadonnas with limited football smarts or fundamentals

    It's sad that my favorite sports writer (and the only one I could even stomache) is black; Jason Whitlock. He's the only one in the cowardly media to mention this trend (which could have been noticed by an 8 year old).

    The easiest example of this fact is the New Orleans Saints. The instant they began starting 7-9 whites, they were a game away from the superbowl...

    Dolphins FS Cameron Worrell suffered a torn ACL in Week 13. He will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

    Worrell came to the Dolphins originally to play special teams, but wound up starting due to multiple injuries in front of him. He's under contract through 2008. Either Lance Schulters or Courtney Bryan will take his place.

    Well the Dolphins spoiled the "imperfect season" by winning a game in overtime yesterday against the pathetic Ravens. The star of the game was white wr Greg Camarillo who turned a short pass over the middle into a 63 yard td. I was very happy for him until I saw him interviewed on ESPN today and he said the classic line that all white players at the skill positions like to say. "I have never been known for my speed" in explaining his td yesterday. You hardly ever hear a black player make any sort of negative comment like that about his talent.

    Baltimore CB Jamaine Winborn must be slow as molasses then, because he lost ground trying to catch Camarillo. So much for the myth that only blacksmust play cornerback because they're fast.

    What is more ironic the perfect team, had 10 Caucasian starters on defense(Manny Fernandez might be Mexican but is predominately white)and I think 8 on offense as Kiick was a back up to Morris at that point. Anyway I nominate the Lemon for comeback player of the year........ [​IMG] [​IMG] Edited by: white is right

    I heard an interview with Camarillo, and he sounds like a typical black homeboy. His picture was superimposed on the screen during the interview, and he looks like some kind of mix to me. If he is white, he's somehow developed an ebonics accent. I guess that could happen to any white player in this league.

    Manny Fernandez is not Mexican. He was thought to be Cuban by the fans, but was not. I recall reading an article about Fernandez were he described himself as pure Spanish. He thought it was funny.

    I just went to the wikipedia article on Manny Fernandez which refreshed my memory. The Dolphins signed Fernandez partly because they thought it would help with Spanish-speaking fans. However, Manny Fernandez did not speak Spanish. He was not much over 6 feet tall, but was quick and athletic, and had been a wrestler and thrown the discuss in high school.

    His father is a professor at Stanford so quite where the ebonics comes from is anyone's guess.

    His appearance suggests the possibility</span> of a rogue grandparent, </span>but even by the standards of the biggest one-drop zealots at CF he can't be considered anything other than white.

    To the media he is definitely </span>white. Check out this article.

    "Chugging" 60 yards to accelerate away from the corner and beat the covering safety!

    Your post makes me wonder why I even bother with this stuff. Brady isn't a good role model because he got a woman pregnant out of wedlock. Urlacher has a child with a black woman. Zach Thomas' sister is married to a black football player. Eli Manning is weak and has no leadership skills. Shockey is too loud, brash, arrogant, and obnoxious (did I leave anything out?) Kevin Kasper is too 'out there.' Matt Furrey is a weak milquetoast because he doesn't stick up for himself. Same for Matt Jones. And there is Favre - gives away the sack record, addicted to pain killers, and throws his best friend under the bus at the first hint of trouble. And how many are lambasted because they never say anything about the caste system? And let's not forget, Clemens is a steroid abuser and cheater. And Andy Pettitte, too.

    Who's left, Peyton Manning? [​IMG]

    So? Looking at him he might be one of them anyway. As a marginal pro athlete its not like he's going to be at the forefront of subverting western man. If his father (professor of American History) likes the same stuff then that is more of a problem.

    Anyway follow the link and look whom he models his play on [​IMG]

    Can you quote the highlights for us? I don't want to register for another online news site just to read one article.

    I'm not at all surprised that the topic of "Is Camarillo White?" came up here at CF. It always does when we're dealing with a player who could be considered non-white.

    Personally, I don't really think he is white at all, he looks 100% hispanic. Even the clowns in the media will realize this fact and exploit it for all it's worth (see diversified America). Therefore, how could he help our cause?

    Also, the issue of "Is Camarillo a Wigger?" seems to be totally justified. I too heard the interview with Camarillo, he sounded like any other wanna-be thug (but went to Standford, so WTF?). Judging from his college bio from college, it does seem like he's very "in touch" with his fellow black players.

    To tell you the truth, I really don't care if he succeeds and has an NFL future (he probably won't anyway). There are plenty of awesome COMPLETELY white WR from the past, present, and future to support...who cares about Camarillo?

    Or any of the aforementioned white players. They're all wiggers, Negro lovers, obnoxious, drug-addicted, steroid using ******** anyway, right?

    Hispanic is NOT a race, it is a term used to lump together everyone from south of Texas no matter what their racial background is. This isn't a Spanish or Italian kid, or predominantly so? The media obviously thinks he's white. Let the one drop nonsense go, everyone here roots for who they want to.

    No, that's definately not the case with me. I just dont see why Camarillo should get our support but guys like Justin Fargas (who looks "whiter" or just as white as Camarillo) are completely disowned by this site. I'm not saying I like Fargas or think we should support him. I'm saying that he "outwardly appears" to be a white running back...whereas Camarillo "outwardly appears" to be a white WR. Neither of them are caucasian, so why care about either of them? Seems like wasted time and energy on this site. Just my opinion I guess.

    BTW, wasnt it you who was angry about the "white boy dancing" comment David Anderson made in a recent article? I know, because I was angry too. How is this any different? I no longer care about David Anderson (who I used to love to watch in college) all because he used the dreaded term: "white boy" in reference to himself and his fellow NFL players. I only hope Anderson succeeds in the NFL just to further prove to the fans/media/talking heads that whites are great WR's.

    I mean, come on, it's OK not to like some white players. I feel like some of them simply dont deserve our support.

    This is Justin Fargas' father:


    [​IMG]


    Some here root for players like Bruschi, Damon, Kaesviharn and others because to the extent they are non-whitethey are notpart black. What's the difference? Because the Caste System exists for the benefit of blacks (and the power structure in the U.S., including the corporate media which glamorizes and otherwise enables the Caste System). Fargas, like Nick Goings, Robert Smith, etc., is black by the common definition used in the U.S.


    I haven't seen any evidence that Camarillo is part-black. He most likely is entirely white, or has a little "native" (Indian) blood in him. In fact, the way the media has made a joke out of him is strong (but rebuttable) evidence that Camarillo has no black ancestry and is either white or mostly white.
