    I don't presume to know more than the basics about American football and even less about the Varsity team Marshall, never the less I sat myself down and watched 'We Are Marshall' and almost got a lump in my throat, lesser men will no doubt be in floods, women may need medical treatment.

    Without going into too much detail and spoiling it for those that don't know the story a terrible tragedy befalls said team and this is the story of those that pick up the pieces of their lives and ultimately the lives of others.

    What was it that bored you about the movie?Could it be that you have the attention span of a gnat?

    hey, if you liked it then thats cool, my dislike of the movie has nothing to do with you. so why talk shit?

    what bored me about it was that it seemed like i was watching another football movie like fridaynight lights, or radio, or remember the titans, any given sunday, the longest yard, the gridiron gang, the replacements, Necessary Roughness, the comebacks and on and on and on it goes.

    I loved it. But then I'm a hopeless sucker for football (gridiron) films. The game is such a great metaphor that can be applied to many situations.

    Your initial dismissive post prompted my response, if you don't like it, tough titties.

    You see, you can elaborate when you apply yourself, you should have qualified your first post with your second.I brought that out of you, you should thank me.:eusa_angel:

    it was a great movie made even more poignant because it was a true story.
