    Leonardfan, nice find, I had skipped over him in my survey of marginal white players, assuming from his name, and the team he was on that he was black. Kind of a reverse Bryan Kehl.

    you guys need to pay closer attention! i posted on Charlie Martin's stats all last season. [​IMG]

    he's a heck of a ball player, and should've been drafted. without a doubt, he has the talent to be a contributor in the NFL. however, he has that dang debilitating skin condition that seems to short circuit talent ... maybe the San Diego sun will help him tan dark enough to overcome it. *rants*

    first off, Martin's first name is "Charly" with a Y! [​IMG]i mis-spelled it in my earlier post, as well. [​IMG]

    secondly, for those who didn't see the Chargers pre-season game, Martin had a team-high 67 yards on 5 catches and averaged 24 yards-per-kick return on three returns.

    thirdly, he's no over-achiever. he's a very good athlete. here's some of his story and his athletic numbers:

    and here's a profile on him, where he talks about the path he's had to take. and as with so many White athletes, even his own "friends" told him he wasn't good enough to play wide receiver! [​IMG]

    I watched part of the fourth quarter when Martin was playing. The announcers were actually playing him up, but in an amused kind of way. The play by play announcer at one point called him the Chargers' "Wes Welker," a purely racial (racist) reference as there is no similarity between the two in size and build, nor in the position they play (Welker is mostly a slot receiver, Martin was split wide). It's kind of like comparing Byron Leftwich to Gary Coleman. Now that I think of it, their faces are similar.

    good article (thank Jimmy, you're a star!) and a good post Don.

    if anything Charly reminds me of Kevin Walter, although he might be slightly smaller and quicker.

    funny how every white wide out is now being compared to Wes Welker no matter how different they are from Welker.

    I have never heard of Charlie Martin. Does he have a decent chance of making a roster?

    you guys seriously need to pay attention and actually READ the posts other folks submit. i posted on Martin's numbers all last season in the college football stars section.

    CHARLY (with a Y) Martin has plenty of talent, speed, size, and productivity to be a legitimate NFL wide receiver. of course, he has the debilitating skin disorder that prevents most with his condition from every getting a fair shake ... that being said, he's got the tools. and if the team bases its decision on merit, then he'll be a Charger. if not, then he'll fall to the Caste System like so many others before him.

    how about you actually READ them? [​IMG]that's what they are for, mate.

    there are a lot of folks on this site, myself included, whogive a lot of their time to keep track of the facts regarding the caste system. the least you could do is read what they post.

    then, the other posters wouldn't have to babysit you. AND you might actually learn something.
