And still better than the 2000 Kirk Cameron version.

That's why it got a 2.1 rating instead of a 1.6.

On average, NFL teams only win 50% of their games. You'd think that a bunch of professionals could do better than that.

Interestingly, I think MLS teams on average win more than 50% of their games.

Trying to figure this one out...do they tend to play (& out-play at that) a bunch of non-MLS teams?

p.s. I count a tie as 1/2 of a win & 1/2 of a loss.

The US Open Cup and the Champions league feature cross-league competition.

In particular, MLS teams are the top of the heap in the US open cup - the 2015 tournament featured 17 matches between MLS and non-MLS teams, and the MLS teams went 15-2. MLS teams were 11W-3D-4L in the most recent Champions league.

edit: and yes, I was looking for a "how can that be?" response.

This is the only movie I've seen that was so bad I had to tell people. It's not even bad in a way that can be funny.

It couldn't have taken more than 4 hours of Cage's time.
