5 mistakes in The One With The Football

The One With The Football - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: After Joey's initial conversation with the Dutch woman, as he is walking away speaking to Chandler on his way back to the game, you can see the shadow of the camera is on his chest and moves away as he walks.

Other mistake: The accent of the Dutch woman is not a Dutch accent at all. It appears to be Scandinavian.

Other mistake: The friends are playing touch football with touchdowns worth 7 points and no way of scoring field goals. So this makes it impossible for the girls to be two points down with thirty seconds to go.

Continuity mistake: When they are talking about the Geller Cup, Monica is looking at Ross and then looks down. But when the camera angle changes, she is still looking at Ross and then looks down again.

Character mistake: Ross tells Chandler to run a "post pattern to the left." (And Chandler quickly agrees.) In football, this is a type of passing play where Ross would hold on to the ball while Chandler runs straight down the field immediately after the snap, eventually veering diagonally to the left once he's a ways down field to receive a pass from Ross. The play that they actually run is completely different. It's a running play known as a sweep. (A toss sweep to be precise.) There is no possible way that anyone either making play calls or running them would ever confuse a post vs. a sweep.
