  1. 1. Which was the better football movie?

Recommended Posts

I have assembled the 26 best football-themed movies and in true March Madness style, created a bracket to determine the best football movie of all time.


Myself and three other sports-minded people ranked the movies 1 to 26, with seeds determined by the averages - low to high.


I will post a thread at different intervals throughout the next few weeks and months. Everyone will have the same amount of time to vote before the polls close. The winner advances.


You will not know the list of movies until the first round is over. I'm sure I have forgotten one or two, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.


Some you won't see are:


Jerry McGuire, which was more about agents than football

  • Black Sunday, more about terrorists than football
  • Air Bud, more about being terrible than football
  • Forrest Gump, MASH, Lucas, Last Boy Scout, etc. all had football in it but wasn't the central plot.

Use whatever criteria you wish in casting the vote. In the spirit of the MVP Award, "Best Football Movie" can mean whatever you want it to mean.


The bracket has two play-in games. They will play into the bracket against either the #9 or #10 seed.


#14 - Varsity Blues (James Van Der Beek, Jon Voight, Amy Smart)






#19 The Waterboy (Adam Sandler, Henry Winkler, Jerry Reed, and Kathy Bates)
