^Haven't read the book but it sure is a good movie. Will find and read the book now.
I like the film adaptation better than Blind Side, Remember The Titans and Heaven Can Wait, also favorite football movies of mine. Still hate All The Right Moves and Mean Machine, all versions.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
