20/02/2018 · The Good Victims, Bad Victims trope as used in popular culture. A morality trope about the arbitrary distinctions writers make between certain sorts of …
Plot: A high school football coach takes a special needs student under his wing.
Based on: A true story of T.L. Hanna High School football coach Harold Jones and "Radio" Kennedy that you might have read in Sports Illustrated in 1996.
Stars: Ed Harris and Cuba Gooding Jr.
What went right: Gooding's acting wasn't as bad as the critics made it out to be.
What might only interest me: Radio still goes to games at T.L. Hanna High School.
Spoiler alert: Somebody in the movie dies. I'll give you a hint, the name starts with M, ends with R and is not Marge Helgenberger. Overall though, the movie should have been so much better given the starpower.

05/03/2015 · Video games are good for children (sort of) Why spending time playing video games instead of doing homework could help boost teenagers’ grades
Plot: A coach must juggle a meddling owner and ego of his new star QB after his trusted veteran signal caller goes down with an injury.
Based on: This is based on a book by former Raiders trainer Rob Huizenga. The book was better.
Stars: Al Pacino, Jamie Foxx, Dennis Quaid, Cameron Diaz and LL Cool J.
Notable cameos: Lawrence Taylor, Jim Brown and Barry Switzer among others.
What went wrong: The uniforms of the teams were laughably bad. The fake Texas Stadium was the worst. The on-field action was way over the top.
But you're forgiven for: One of my biggest beefs with the movie was Willie Beamen eating chips on the sidelines. And then Mark Sanchez ate a hot dog on the sidelines.
What might only interest me: John C. McGinley played Jack Rose, based on Jim Rome and totally trashes him. Also former NFL player Darnell Autry was turned down for a role because he didn't look like a football player.

Bad ratings are never good for the league, and will always cause concern. However, the numbers from the Chiefs-Broncos game should cause particular concern.
Plot: A big-time Texas football program is given the death penalty, and must regroup with non-scholarship players including a quarterback in his 30s.
Based on: Some might say the movie was inspired by SMU.
Stars: Scott Bakula, Jason Bateman, Hector Elizondo, Sinbad and Kathy Ireland.
Notable cameos: Dick Butkus, Jerry Rice and Jim Kelly on the convict team.
What went right: Criticized for trying too hard, this was actually a pretty fun movie. And Larry Miller nearly steals the show.
What might only interest me: Most of the filming takes place at North Texas, home to "Mean" Joe Greene and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
Rob Schneider alert: Second appearance on this list.
Spoiler alert: Yes, the quarterback quits, returns and they knock off the team that is supposed to be the University of Texas.

Based on: Sports agent Leigh Steinberg, who also served as technical director.
Stars: Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Renee Zellwegger (two for her) and Jay Mohr.
What went right: Women loved it.
What went wrong: "Show me the money" became a part of our vernacular.
What might only interest me: I was with my dad at the Cowboys vs. Cardinals game this climactic game was filmed at. And in the hotel bar prior to the game, I made a bet with the bartender that Shaquille O'Neal was going to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1996 offseason. I won free drinks for life at the Tempe Marriott.
Spoiler alert: Uh, did the Cardinals win the fictional game? I guess it doesn't matter because he got his big-money contract, showing what's really important, I guess.

Will has a big day ahead of him

Plot: A love triangle between two professional football players and the owner's daughter leads to hilarity.
Stars: Burt Reynolds, Kris Kristofferson, Bert Convy and Jill Clayburgh.
Notable cameos: Joe Kapp, Ed "Too Tall" Jones and Paul Hornung.
Perfect casting: Kristofferson plays "Shake," and given the resemblance, you can't help but think of Kenny "The Snake" Stabler.
What might interest only me: Reynolds and Kristofferson were actually pretty good football players. Kristofferson, in fact, appeared in Sports Illustrated's "Faces in the Crowd" section while he was in college for his exploits on the field.
Spoiler alert: There is no doubt Reynolds was going to walk away with the girl, right?
