    OMG! You MUST see get this movie. I had never heard of this guy and I love football and I am an African American. Not only is the storyline outstanding but the acting is superb. Give it a chance and I promise you won't be disappointed. I didn't even realize it was out on DVD until I saw it listed on PPV. Forget that! I'm on my way to Target to BUY IT!!!!

    Saw this movie last night and thought it was very good. Sad at the end but still a very very good movie. At times it was hard to watch but you have to understand how things were back in that day. Overall good movie.
