My wife and I watched this last night. Some really funny stuff. Obviouslyblurred the lines between real life and comedy, but a good watch all the same. Some serious moments about family and accountability mixed in also.

Um, yes, let's celebrate someone suspended for bounties. WTF were they thinking with this movie?
They address it in the movie and I liked the dialogue between him and his son.

Payton (Kevin James) says to his son, about whether or not he did it - the bounties which earned him a suspension - "It's complicated, but at the end of the day, I am the head coach and I have to be the one to take responsibility." To which his son comes back with "If you're taking responsibility, why are you appealing the suspension?"

Someone at Netflix had to lose a bet. That’s the only explanation for how this got made.

With Kevin James.
