* PositiveDiscriminationPositiveDiscrimination: The whole reason the Bears exist is because one of the players' parents is an attorney, and decided to sue the league. He also paid Buttermaker to coach the team.

''TheBadNewsBears'' is a 1976 film directed by Michael Ritchie. It stars Walter Matthau as Morris Buttermaker, an alcoholic former minor-league baseball player who becomes the coach of the Bears, a cellar-dwelling Little League baseball team with poor playing skills and little hope or ever winning.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The studio originally wanted Burt Lancaster to play Buttermaker. The screenwriter (Lancaster's son) vetoed that idea as he didn't want people to think he was playing off his father's fame.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The [[http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51CD64NA7QL.jpg DVD cover]] shows Amanda standing on a box while talking to Buttermaker. Take a wild guess as to whether a scene like that appears in the actual movie.
