Continuity mistake: In the locker room scene, Remer and Joe are both naked. When Remer goes to pull Squeak out the drawer, you see him put a robe on, but you also see him wearing underwear. It wouldn't be possible to put on underwear in about 1/2 a second.

Continuity mistake: When Coop and Remer psyche out Ted together at the beginning of the film, Coop suddenly has a camera with him that was not there before. Also when Coop is taking Ted's picture, he does not have a beer can in his hand, but two seconds later when he is giving Ted the photo, the beer can has magically reappeared.

Continuity mistake: During the first half of the final Denslow Cup, when the kids are watching it on television, there is an alphabet behind them, and at one shot, the alphabet contains all 26 letters, and when it cuts to them again, one of the letters is missing.

Continuity mistake: Several of the players on the Beers' bench appear on the benches of several teams throughout the film. Overuse of extras perhaps?

Continuity mistake: In the scene at the beginning where all the shots of the different Pro sports, they show a shot of a hockey goalie stopping a human head. If you pay attention, the goal isn't even on the right line on the ice, it seems to be on the center (red) line.

Continuity mistake: After Coop has missed the third home run, he goes to the hospital with Remer and Squeak to see Joey. When he runs into the Post-op ward and sees Joey lying in bed, a bit of his fringe, in the running, has been swept up onto his head. But immediately in the next shot of him, when it goes to a close up of his face as the nurse says "He keep screaming 'Choke, Choke'.", the bit is no longer swept back, but is hanging neatly.

Continuity mistake: When they show Squeak his bed, you can plainly see the blinds on the window he opens, the blinds are level with his forehead, but when he opens the window the blinds are a foot above his head. (00:15:10 - 00:21:35)

Continuity mistake: Just after the Beers have lost a game due to Coop being psyched out, Squeek walks over to a trough to pee. He is in his uniform. Just after that, he walks up to a news reporter where he can be seen wearing a blue robe.

Continuity mistake: When Coop and Remer are at Brittany's party and they talk to Steph, you can see Skidmark Steve directly behind Steph in front of the Bon Voyage poster. But when they leave, Skidmark Steve is not standing where he was before. (00:05:45)

Continuity mistake: When Coop is making his first basketball, he hands it to Remer, leaving Remer to spin the ball around to see La-Z-boy printed on the back. However, we can see the other side is blank.

Continuity mistake: Several of the players on the Beers' bench appear on the benches of several teams throughout the film. Overuse of extras perhaps?

Narrator: Soon it was commonplace for entire teams to change cities in search of greater profits. The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee where there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Raiders moved from Oakland to LA back to Oakland. No-one in LA seemed to notice.

Trivia: Where Coop is taunting the fat guy in the last match, the voice he puts on bears a striking resemblance to that of Eric Cartman, a character Trey Parker (Coop) voices in the comedy he and Matt Stone (Reemer) created called South Park. Also, in the locker room, where he (sarcastically) says how Doug Reemer "really cares about kids", the voice he puts on is that of Mr. Garisson, the teacher at South Park Elementary (also voiced by Parker).
