    A typical product of the immediate post Watergate era in Hollywood, this film, set in a dying PA. mill town intended no doubt to symbolize the American industrial heartland goin to hell in a steel basket, is considerably lighter in tone and less pretentious than its companion piece, "Deerhunter", made a year later. That it is not as good a film is due largely to lack of a compelling story...what we have is something about a minor league sports team for sale or not for sale...or characters about whom we can care or with whom we can become involved, Paul Newman's player coach honorably excepted. Which is a good thing since Newman is in the vast majority of scenes and his sometimes relaxed, sometimes befuddled, sometimes angry performance is one of his best, in my opinion, right up there with Luke or Hud or Fast Eddie, and lifts this rather empty vessel to a B minus. PS... The reaction of reviewer Alice below to hearing profanity in films is a lot like my reaction to hearing our 45th pres. on TV.

    Like so many of my generation, I derived so much pleasure from most of Paul Newman's movies. Unfortunately, this one was pretty much akin to repeated kicks in the stomach every time one of the actors let loose with a F, FU , FJU, JC, JFC, and on and on it went. There were at least as many of those expletives as words.I barely stood 25 minuted before I shut it off...I felt as though I had shocked every way but loose.If you must show films like this, would you please show them between 2am and 6am? I was so looking forward to enjoying the clean-mouthed Paul Newman.What a waste of time and film. I really don't care how "real" this film was. Charles Manson was real. I don't believe we needed to see his actual cruelty in the things he did to people to create enjoyment and entertainment for us.

    I saw the Hansen brothers in the flesh play in Sioux City, Iowa 3 or 4 times. They were real people, and uglier than the movie actors, but could they fight. This movie is incredibly accurate to minor league hockey in the 70's.
