Pions vs. Fermi Dirac Statistics and Bose-Einstein Statistics

  1. Hello!
    I have a small question, and Im not sure if im missing something:
    Today I glanced at the wikipedia page for Pions, and saw this: Statistics: Bosonic
    Can anyone explain to me why a quark paired with a anti-quark obey Bose-Einstein Statistics? If quarks obey Fermi-Dirac statistics, and have integer spins, how can this be?
