I know I'm in the minority here, but I really liked Ali. I'd put that in the top 10.

Slap Shot is money D?Annunzion. There was some posts about it very recently. Nice bringing up Vision Quest btw. Breaking Away is both a famous and very good (IMO) cycling movie that could make the list.

Best Arm Wrestling Movie of all Time: Over the Top

The Natural needs to be in the top 5 of baseball movies. And what about Field of Drams?

Brian's Song is better than a lot of the crap you have on the football list.

Steve Lattimer took steroids, Sonny Corleone didn't care, and Joe Kane just wanted to drink; couldn't handle the pressure of being a Heisman hopeful, just wanted daddy to love him. And Halle Berry fucked everything she could.

It was all just another day.....in.....The Program :sniff:



And Space Jam is the best basketball movie ever. I don't give a flying fuck, never forget the pwnage of Daffy Duck...I'm rhymin' today, I see.

Raging Bull should be the number 2 boxing movie after Rocky I ... but JFC, you put it below Rocky V?

Id put raging bull top 3 easy. Necessary roughness is better than waterboy especially with kathy irelands vintage hotness.

Above the Rim is the second best bball movie behind Hoosiers in my book. The Longest Yard (even though you haven't seen it DA) belongs on the list for football movies. It's classic.

ETA: Baseketball belongs somewhere on these lists.

BASEketball is easily the best baseketball movie ever made.

I find Raging Bull to be highly overrated. Never seen Ali. Rocky V is definitely the worst of the Rockys, but I don't think it's quite as bad as Bill Simmons makes it out to be. I would honestly rather watch it than Raging Bull. HOME TEAM!

Both Fastbreak and The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh should be on the basketball list.
