Samoa is reeling from the earthquake and tidal wave. Sopoaga has not been able to directly contact any members of his family, but has learned from third parties that some of his family is in a hospital. How can this guy possibly be focussed on football with such family tragedy half a world away?
in the end the NFL is a particularly tough buisness. It is tough for a player to focus when such tragedy happens, yet he is far more capable helping financially then he would by being there physically. Fortunately Ice gets paid handsomely and he could do more with his than he could by being there.... Yet I would say give him 2 weeks off game before the bye and bye week. than get yo ass back in camp and FIGHT/PLAY FOR SAMOA! Spread the word through the game and watch it unfold.

I absolutely agree with your comment.
I posted this poll only to personalize what Sopoaga must be going through this week. My hopes and prayers are with him and his family. Jut thought that a little more Webzone focus on what really matters might be a good thing (rather than one more thread about Crabtree, Hill v Smith, or finding blame for the Favre-Lewis play in Minnesota).
