* ValuesDissonance: In the movie, the players on strike are portrayed as spoiled greedy millionaires who are paid millions to play a game. However, recent research has shown that the enormous physical punishment suffered by pro football players put them disproportionately at risk for long-term brain damage that causes early onset of severe dementia. The NFL does not cover the exorbitant costs of long term care for former football players with it, who tend to die young, penniless, and sometimes at their own hands as a result. Coupled with owners routinely threatening to move their teams (and in some cases, have) if taxpayers will not publicly finance a new stadium, a lot of people would perceive the players in this day and age very differently.

** The fact that Shane sustained 3 concussions during his college football career is a throwaway line. Later, he gets knocked down by his own team member and is disoriented for a few seconds, which is played for laughs. Within a decade after the movie's release, however, research on CTE among NFL players demonstrated that multiple concussions were doing permanent brain damage. These findings led the league to introduce [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concussions_in_American_football new concussion protocols]] which would prevent Shane from returning to play if he were disoriented, and would permanently disqualify him if he had 4 diagnosed concussions.
