Corrected entry: Even if Martel had crossed the picket line, why would Falco not dress for the last game? They would still need a backup quarterback and it's obvious that Falco would be the 1st backup since he'd been playing the entire time the strike was on. The writers had him go home so he could make a grand entrance at halftime. And it wouldn't matter that he was a "non-union" player because ONLY Martel crossed the picket line. Not the rest of the team. If the "non-union" correction was correct, then ALL the replacement players would have had to leave.poehitman
Corrected entry: If the players quit in the middle of the season, why is the head cheerleader recruiting a new squad? If the season had already begun, the squad would have already been chosen. And if the players went on strike, why would the cheerleaders also go on strike? It doesn't make any sense.poehitman
Corrected entry: Nigel "The Leg" Gruff is from Cardiff in South Wales, but has a strong North Wales accent. The North and South Wales accents are nothing alike.
Corrected entry: The sub-plot involving Nigel and the loanshark is completely bogus. In the final game against Dallas they want him to miss the field goal. However, Dallas would be the HEAVY favorites seeing as how the entire professional team has crossed the picket line for the game. There is NO REASON for him to miss the field goal, because Dallas would be who everyone is betting on. For the loansharks to make a big score they need Washington to win that game so they sure wouldn't want him to miss that field goal.
Corrected entry: Does anyone else find it odd that Annabelle would have to audition a completely new cheerleading squad? The players are on strike not the entire organization, besides cheerleaders are not part of the players union. So even if she had to audition some new faces, why is it that she has no veterans?
Corrected entry: First game McGinty calls for a pass on the final play of the game. Then Falco changes to a run and McGinty then says he is taking off the run and going to pass. At the very end of the game McGinty says you blew it, if I wanted the running back to have the ball I would have called that play.
Corrected entry: It was not cold enough for anyone's breath to be seen, but many of the players had extra clothing (long sleeved) under their jerseys.
Corrected entry: At various times in the movie, for instance, after a penalty the time should stop. Keanu turns to the camera and says time out. Shouldn't the clock have already been stopped?
Corrected entry: At the end of the "season," just before the playoffs start, the weather should be cold, especially in Washington D.C. However, no one is wearing a coat or "breathing smoke."
Corrected entry: In the final game, when the running back runs for the long touchdown, a guy comes out of nowhere and breaks his knee. As he is jumping into the endzone, the defensive player hits his right knee. In the scene when he's laying on the ground, his left knee is broken.
Corrected entry: In the beginning, while at practice, Falco shows up and talks to the coach. When asked if he can still throw and the coach gives him the ball, the preacher guy says he'll go long. Falco throws and the guy takes off, but the guy that runs into the other players and falls down is Orlando Jones, not the preacher guy.
Corrected entry: When they are dancing in jail, Keanu is wearing his hat, and the moment the coach looks in he doesn't have it on. He is also not holding it, the next scene he is.
