The Decline of Sports Movies

Sports Guy reviews "Glory Road":

But I need another great sports movie. How many times can I watch "Hoosiers", "Rocky", "Slap Shot" or "Caddyshack"? We're going on 20 years here. The thing that discouraged me most about "Glory Road" wasn't that they turned a relevant story with A-plus potential into a formulaic sports flick no better or worse than "Coach Carter" or "Miracle" or anything else from this decade. What hurts is that I walked into the theater with Earl Boykins-size expectations. I had given up before it started.
