For all of you still having trouble pronouncing our newest DE's name, I have the solution.

Beginner Level

Do not, I repeat, Do Not ever attempt to say his name if you aren't 100% sure of the correct pronunciation. You are just going to sound like an ignorant troll. Refer to him only as "the big guy," or "that monster defensive end." Also acceptable is "Shaq Baby," "The Sears Tower," "Voltron," and "The-Huge-Guy-Serial-Crusher-Theory."

Intermediate Level

Just go with the first name only when referencing Ropati. See, It's that simple. The next part is even easier. I tell my 3 year old to "Go Potty" about a thousand times a day. It's pronounced exactly the same way as "Go Potty," but with a Roe in place of the Go.

Say it with me now, "Ropati." That's great, now rinse and repeat ten times. You got it.

Advanced Level

Now that you've mastered Ropati's first name, let's focus on his last name and it's correct pronunciation. It's really not that hard once you break down the five syllables. In fact, it's easier to just combine the first Two syllables into this phrase, "Put TOE." I know it's weird and a little suggestive, but that just makes it easier to remember. What would someone "put their toe into" you might ask? IDK, but while you were thinking about it, one might utter the phrase "Uh-TWO-Ahh?" Well, it's something I might say out of sheer confusion. Now put it all together and you've got yourself a Ropati Pitoitua. Did you say it correctly just then? If so, you've passed the test.

Say his name correctly ten times in a row and you are a graduate of this coarse.
