In the final game when Cap runs for a touchdown and gets up dazed, the television shots showing him slowly exiting the field shows that the sharks have already made the extra point, even though Cap has not yet made it off the field so it would not yet have been possible to kick the extra point.

When Cap Rooney is knocked out of the game, he is sacked around the 25 yard line, as evidenced by multiple shots of him lying on the turf in the middle of the shark logo at the 20 yard line. When his first replacement runs out on the field, the ball is at the 41 yard line, near the Shark-Fin-S logo at midfield. Then, in the very next field shot, before a play is run, the ball is correctly placed at the 30.
