Corrected entry: After they have won the final game, all the other players are running out on to the field, they show a shot of Biemans' back as he is about to be lifted into the air, the number 40 is clearly seen on the back of his jersey with number 13 on the sleeve.
Corrected entry: During the closing game sequence there are several shots of Texas Stadium in Dallas. They are not playing the Dallas Cowboys football team but a fictional Dallas pro team. Luther 'Shark' Lavay (Lawrence Taylor) goes down with an injury and Head Coach Tony D'Amato (Al Pacino) looks at the sky through opening in the roof of the dome. Clearly visible are several of the Dallas Cowboys NFL championship banners. They can be seen at least once more during the game.
Corrected entry: No football league from PeeWee to Professional has allowed the mirrored shields in helmets for the past 4-5 years due to the fact that a trainer can't see his eyes in case of a head injury. These shields were shown numerous times throughout the film.
Corrected entry: After LT makes the tackle to stop the Dallas team from getting the first down, he is laying face down and unconscious. When they go to check on him he is laying on his back and with his arms folded across his chest. How did that happen if he is unconscious?
Corrected entry: In the first game, the first half is played in daylight and after only a short halftime, the stadium is completely dark and the game seems to be being played at night.
Corrected entry: Jaimie Fox's first play is on a count of two, when he calls for the ball to be hiked he only calls once.
Corrected entry: When the "old man" quarterback is starting in the final game, and runs for the touchdown, the Sharks' score is shown from going to 10 to 17, before he leaves the field. After every touchdown, there should be an extra point kicked.
Corrected entry: In the climactic game, the Sharks score a touchdown late in the 4th quarter that cuts Dallas' lead to 35-31. In such circumstances, most teams would have tried a 2-point conversion that if successful, would have made the score 35-32 and allowed them to tie the score with a field goal.
Corrected entry: After the final game, Willie goes back onto the pitch wearing his game jersey without any padding. So he took off his sweaty shirt, took off his padding, then put the sweaty shirt back on to go onto the pitch? Why not change to another shirt?
Corrected entry: The Miami Sharks never change their uniforms for home or away contests; they are always show in their black uniforms (which would be unpleasant in the South FL humidity). Most NFL teams wear dark jerseys at home and white on the road.
