    In an interesting development, the Falcons sign japanese wide reciever and punt returner Noriaki Kinosh*ta. He is in training camp now.

    The Japanese create a culture of mystique and aura around themselves. This shields them from the Caste System largely. In baseball, look at the accolades Ichiro Suzuki gets for his speed. It goes hand in hand with his being a Japanese symbol.

    I'd rather see a Jap than a black!

    I like seeing the Asian athlete succeed as well. Former Cowboys linebacker Dat Nguyen was a personal favorite of mine. Nowadays I like MMA fighters Sakarabi and Gomi and hope they appear in the UFC soon.

    Reminder: Jap player equals one less spot for a white player. They don't just take spots from blacks. This is a not an anybody-but-black site.

    Does Posednik receive many compliments? We could learn a lot from Japan today. They are a country with a high standard of living, but with a trade surplus. They manage to adapt and be somewhat inclusive with their culture and country(they are open to some legal immigration from China), but they don't let it destroy their culture.

    I hope he changes his name. His name is so vulgar that it must be censored--only the media gets to swear every 5 seconds. [​IMG]Na, it is pathetic that the auto censor won't show his name.Edited by: Freedom

    The point here is that it will be interesting to see if he makes the team, and if he makes the team, if he gets to play.

    There are many white players better than him, so the results here will be data on whether the Falcons are going with a "blacks only" policy or a "anybody but a white guy" policy.

    Is he a gimmick signing? Do the Falcons have a game in Japan? I recall the Broncos signing a Mexican sprinter and cutting him after a few weeks because he could run patterns. I know this guy is much less raw, but he is really up against it to make the roster.
