Trivia

A subplot of this episode is the team recognizing the support staff who help run the show. Many of the names they read (including the costumers mentioned earlier in the episode) are real crew members. See more »

Goofs

During Episode 1.11, there is reference to Bobby Knight 'redecorating' the Hoosier Dome. Bobby Knight was, at that time, head coach of Indiana University in Bloomington, which plays at Assembly Hall. The Hoosier Dome is located in Indianapolis and is home to the Indianapolis Colts during that time of year. While basketball has been played in the Dome, it very rarely hosts basketball games. (The Conceco Fieldhouse, home of the Pacers, has hosted games for universities in Indiana). At the time of broadcast (Winter 1998) it had been renamed the RCA Dome for almost five years. See more »

Quotes

Dan Rydell: [on the air] We'll bring you the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat, and because we've got soccer highlights, the sheer pointlessness of a zero-zero tie. You're watching Sports Night on CSC, so stick around.

one of the top 20 episodes of TV, ever
27 September 2012 | by grnhair2001See all my reviews

Having just reviewed a couple of bad TV shows, I had to remind myself sometimes I like TV. Rome, this show, and a handful of others make television into art, into what it has the potential to be but so seldom is. And this is my favorite episode of the show, in which black football players refuse to play under the confederate flag, and Casey (Krause) assumes his black boss will do a broadcast editorial on this issue--and is surprised and hurt and what he hears back. The episode explores racism, expectations, friendship, morality--it does a lot in a very few minutes.

I love when Sorkin twangs my heartstrings as he did in this episode. Boy, I cried at the end.
