Storyline

McKees Rocks, PA located 12 miles from Pittsburgh, is quintessential small town America - population 6000. It's a former coal-mining town that turned to the steel industry and then the airline industry. Airline cutbacks and loss of jobs have taken McKees Rocks into a notable economic decline in recent years. The high school football team, the Montour Spartans is also in total disarray. In spite of their past glory - when they won State championships, were known to go without ever losing a game and the players were local heroes - the football team has lost almost every game for the last several years. But the town still remembers what it was like to be proud of their team and to this day tell their children stories of big games, star players, and triumphant moments. Thousands of people still come out to support the team but they don't have much to brag about. But that's all about to change. Enter NFL legend DICK BUTKUS. He's here to give this ragtag high school football team a ... Written by Anonymous

All lies

Butkus wasn't the head coach - Lou Cerro was. Butkus was just a meaningless figurehead who came in for a paycheck, and left before the season was over when ESPN scrapped production due to low ratings and the miserable season Montour was having.

What's the lesson learned? Reality is not what is on TV. The reality of the situation was Montour took the money and ran, ESPN brought in meaningless figurehead who bailed on the team, and the team still stunk horribly. The kids liked to be on TV, this I'm sure of - but do you really want to be on TV listening to some old-school jackass with no real authority, getting your butt handed to you week in and week out by relative nobodies in the Pittsburgh high school scene?

Sorry kids, your school board sold you out to buy some new desks for the science labs. I hope you enjoy them.
