Question: How did Ronnie do what he did to the guy who was about to sack him during the Groveton game? Is that even possible?

Answer: Yes, it is possible. He lowers his body and uses the opposing player's own momentum to flip him over his back. I don't know the official name of it, but I've seen it performed by NHL players and the announcers called it "submarining."

Continuity mistake: After Sunshine shows up at practice with his father, he picks up a football and throws it at Bertier. On the way down, the ball looks as if it will miss the player by 2 or 3 feet to the right, but on close up it hits him square in the back - rather weakly.
