    Hey Sherdog,

    I ran into the term Guardeiro and Raspador over the weekend.

    Guardeiro is kind of obvious, guard player.

    But what is Raspador?

    A google search did not prove very useful.

    Are there any technical differences between Guardeiro and Raspador? Or are they just synonyms?

    Thanks!

    I think Guardeiro was radioactive while Raspador could shoot laser beams out of his eyes

    Raspado = Sweep

    So raspador = sweeper

    I think it's just another term for a guard player.
