The Kickoff is one of the Hal Roach Boy Friends series. The story is pretty standard: a football team is blackmailed to lose the game. However, two dimwits, Mickey and Grady, add comedy by ruining absolutely everything in sight. The gags have been done before and since such as the boys running the wrong way, getting hit easily, and generally playing horribly. Later, the team fights the crooks to save their coach. Thankfully, the Mickey and Grady have personality, and this makes the short entertaining despite the over-used plot and gags.

The problem is trying to find a copy of the film, and then getting one that is watchable. When will the series be formally released?
