I am in no way associated with this movie, but I did donate a couple bucks ; )
There is such a big Polynesian influence in the NFL: Polamalu, Ngata, Tatupu, just to name a few.
Even in the 2011 draft you can see the influence; Paea, Fua, Havili.
These are quality players, quality men.
Sixty minutes did a piece on this a while back. In the piece the American Samoans were called, "A hard working people who prize, reverence and discipline".
Sound like the right "53"? It sure does to me.
I for one respect these warriors. Not just as NFL players but as a people as well.
