The Replacements (2000)
- 1. The teams played by the Washington in the film mirror the teams the Redskins played during the 1987 scab games (including a Dallas team where all the regular starters crossed the picket line and returned).
- 2. Shane Falco wears the number 16. Redskins replacement quarterback Edd Ruppert (who played college ball at Louisville) wore that number. Ruppert actually managed to last three seasons as the Redskins third string QB.
- 3. The Redskins did have a player named Tony Robinson, who had just been released from prison prior to making the replacement team. The film depiction features a player who's on work release to play for the team.
