Added DiffLines:

** Possibly mended by the fact that Gordon's boss emphasized that his community service would help Gordon learn "fair play." Gordon's preventing the Hawks from cheating by using a player not in their district. The scene also implies that Adam's father and possibly even Ducksworth are willing to bribe the sports authority.


Added DiffLines:

** The shopping montage mentioned below is also an example as it shows the cash register for Hans's sporting goods store quickly racking up a massive bill for the newly sponsored Ducks.

* IgnoredExpert: Coach Orion is a former NHL player and is completely right about both the Ducks' lackluster defensive skills and the need for them to improve in order to compete at the high school level of hockey. However, because this requires shaking up the Ducks' traditions, the team ignores him until Bombay has a heart to heart with Charlie.

* InformedFlaw: While Charlie briefly quits the team in D3, the commentator says that Goldberg's suddenly excelled as a defenseman. He's alluded to in the Freshman-JV as the "new defensive weapon," but we don't get to see much of this.

--> "Eden Hall Academy requires you to maintain a "C" average to compete. I believe that's a bad rule. I don't want any "C" players on my team. It's B's or better or you're riding the pine pony."

* SpinningNewspaper: Used to accelerate the pace of the first two films.
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Film/TheBadNewsBears'' as both films feature a coach who is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold teaching a team of RagtagBunchOfMisfits and said coach forms a bond with one of the players. Just that in this movie [[spoiler: the underdogs actually won]].

* BrickJoke: Linda, to whom Charlie is attracted D3, circulating a petition to get the controversial mascot of the Eden Hall Warriors changed. It becomes a wager for the matchup between the freshman and varsity hockey teams, and the change is made official after the freshman team wins the match.



* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: The Ducks, when they were simply District 5, are a band of underdogs who were basically at the bottom of the barrel (they didn't even have proper sports hockey equipment). Once they become the Ducks, they become champions.

* HoistByTheirOwnPetard: Bombay all but tells the Alumni Board this in D3 when he points out that Eden Hall gave him the education to become the excellent lawyer that he is in representing Orion and the Ducks in their fight to stay in the school.
-->'''Gordon''': I ''will'' collect damages. I ''will'' win, because I am very, ''very'' good. You know why I'm so good? Because I had a good education. ''You'' gave it to me, and you're going to give it to these kids.
