RED DOG lost his chance to play pro football as a barefoot placekicker when a defensive lineman ground his cleats into the big Samoan's toe. Red gave the lineman a concusson and was suspended for unnecessary roughness. He worked as a stuntman until the G.I. Joe team recruited him. When they encounter a large obstacle, they point "Red Dog" in the right direction and then wait for the dust to settle.
Born in Samoa, David "Red Dog" Taputapu had a career in Pro-Football until he was kicked out for continued unnecessary roughness. He then worked as a stuntman.
