As Payton faced a year-long suspension shortly after his Super Bowl XLIV win, he returned to his hometown and the film ultimately unfolds to be a great father-son story.
And of course, football fans expressed their anticipation for the film on social media.

Great spin to take his year long suspension for putting bounties on opponents heads — and turning it into a feel good story about him and his kid. Incredible. 🤡🤡🤡 https://t.co/yrmIEqWoYx

Please stop depicting women who work in sports as not knowledgeable. You wouldn't do it for politics or medicine or if that character was a man.
Signed, women who *actually* work in sports https://t.co/ihvc9j5rVw

As you can see, everyone is thoroughly amused by the trailer.
I’m definitely going to watch this, although I’m pretty sure it will be a huge waste of time…
