TRMPS #7: Gridiron Gang (2006) w/ Mike Mills & Marcus Vanderberg

TRMPS #7: Gridiron Gang (2006) w/ Mike Mills & Marcus Vanderberg

July 26, 2019

Are you ready to take the “Mustang Challenge”, POST-Marks?

On this edition of The Rocky Maivia Picture Show, Nate Milton welcomes two special guests into the theater to review 2006’s Gridiron Gang!

First up is Mike Mills (Booking The Territory). Mike is a retired pro-wrestler, a podcaster, and a Saints fan (hey, 2 outta 3 ain’t bad!). Nate also welcomes his Kings Of Sport tag-team partner, Marcus Vanderberg (Yahoo! Sports) to the show.

Gridiron Gang is (loosely) based on the true story of the Camp Kilpatrick Mustangs football team. The guys discuss the accuracy of the film, the strength of The Rock’s acting, and throw a few penalty flags on the movie’s portrayal of high school football. Does “Gridiron Gang” live up to the legacy of other inspirational 2000’s sports films like “Remember The Titans” and “Coach Carter”... or does it fall short? Find out the answer to that question & more on the latest edition of The Rocky Maivia Picture Show!
