    I'm a sucker for them, I am.

    From comedies like Major League, Caddyshack and Happy Gilmore to jock movies/shows like Blue Mountain State to off-field dramas like Moneyball or Draft Day through to tearjerkers like Field Of Dreams and Jerry Maguire, I love it all.

    Just watched the remake of The Longest Yard, have got myself a copy of the original, and about to stick on Any Given Sunday.

    What are your favourites?

    Have to say I'm the same, even with very little interest in the sports they feature.

    You seen Friday Night Lights?

    Major League is brilliant, as is White Men Can't Jump.

    I recently re-watched some of Space Jam, absolute chod.

    I thought I had but I just checked Netflix and it isn't there, so unless it used to be on Netflix but got removed I may not have. Worth a watch? What sort of thing is it?

    I have a feeling I may have seen the movie but not the TV show.

    Supposedly Pacino's rant at the team in the dressing room is one of the all-time-great Pacino scenes and a must-watch for any self-respecting passionate sports fan.

    The original Longest Yard is brilliant (won't watch the remake on principal)

    Watched this a few weeks ago, along with Goon and Goon 2 on a bit of an ice hockey marathon.

    Slap Shot is definitely the best of the three.

    Not a film but a good documentary on Netflix called Last Chance U. Problem kids from big college football programmes are taken in by a lower level college in Mississippi for a final chance at making it.

    A few NFL players have come through there.
