On a side note, it's quite scary how prescient that film has become. A lot of it was really on the mark.

If you don't think football is "dangerous", then your brain is already messed up. It's the risk they take. Nobody forced them to play...

After watching it, I've just connected why the players wear the shaded visors. I think it's safe to assume that guys wearing shaded visors are playing with their bells rung all the time.
