 It seems a little weird to me that they would make an Italian exploitation movie featuring American football but that's what this movie is.  I have to think this is a pretty rare sub-genre.  I know there was a eurotrash  war movie featuring some football players in Vietnam or The Philippines called THE LAST MATCH but outside of that oddball entry I can't think of any others off the top of my head where this uniquely U.S.-based sport is a main element.
 This here film features the great Bud Spencer who I have only ever seen before in spaghetti-westerns playing a big bad-ass fellow and he pretty much plays his trademark head-bonking tough guy role here as well with the addition of him being a former big-time football star.  If you dig Spencer's style of Three Stooges-esque physical comedy this is a decent flick to check out for some dumb laughs.  Some U.S. army guys on an Italian base are the bad guys and there's a Matt Dillon look-alike character.  The theme song is by Oliver Onions who seem to always come up with some very silly sounding tunes.  AKA UPPERCUT
