I like to imagine that headline meaning any number of different things, but it's just a reference to how many players on the Miami Dolphins are members of the Church of Latter-Day Saints.
As the Dolphins began rookie mini camps and camps for veterans, there are six members of the LDS faith on the team right now, including a trio of veterans, quarterback John Beck (BYU), John Denney (BYU) and Sampson Satele (Hawaii). Steve Fifita (Utah), who was cut and picked up by New England, would have been the seventh, had he stayed on the roster.
The others are Utah State offensive lineman Shawn Murphy, son of former Atlanta Brave star Dale Murphy, who was drafted in the fourth round by Miami, No. 115 overall; free agent signee Kelly Poppinga (BYU) and free agent receiver Devone Bess (Hawaii), who was thought to be taken in the fifth round by Miami but was picked up after the draft.
In my experience with Mormons, they've always been polite, friendly people with no ill will to their fellow man, so I don't know why it's so fun to ridicule them. I guess because they're polite, friendly people with no ill will to their fellow man. Hey dorks, why don't you go spend two years of your lives to try to improve the lives of people in impoverished countries!?!? Suckers.
