Has this topic been discussed before regarding not quite accurate parts of sports logos/uniforms/stadiums in movies or tv shows? In the 1988 film “Naked Gun”, there’s a memorable funny scene where the main character, Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) disguises himself as an umpire during a game between the Angels and the Mariners. While the Mariners uniforms were accurate, the Angels were wearing red helmets instead of navy ones like they did in real life. The movie did get the navy caps (and the rest of the uniforms) correct however. https://briansgifs.tumblr.com/post/74542897964/the-way-baseball-should-be-played These are stadium-related inaccurate scenes rather than logo-related: - The Angels/Mariners games in the aforementioned Naked Gun movie is filmed in Dodger Stadium rather than the Angels’ home park (Angel Stadium in Anaheim) - In Major League (1989), the movie was filmed at County Stadium in Milwaukee rather than Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium. The 1994 sequel is filmed at Baltimore’s Camden Yards. The uniforms in both films are accurate based on the 1988 and 1993 seasons respectively. However, In Major League 2's movie cover, actor Corbin Bernsen is wearing a red undershirt with his uniform instead of navy as seen with Charlie Sheen. The Indians always wore navy socks/undershirts with those uniforms and never wore red in real life. - In one scene in Rookie of the Year (1993), the Cubs are on a road trip playing the Dodgers. The teams are clearly playing at New Comiskey Park (the White Sox ballpark) rather than Dodger Stadium. However, the uniforms throughout the movie are accurate (based on the 1992 season) - In Angels in the Outfield (1994), the movie was filmed at Oakland Coliseum (The A's ballpark, pre-Mount Davis) rather than Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The uniforms throughout the movie are accurate (based on the 1993 season) Here are some basketball ones: There were made-for-TV movies about Michael Jordan (MJ: an American Hero in 1999) and Dennis Rodman (Bad as I Wanna Be in 1998) in the late 1990s. Due to not getting rights to use NBA licenses (logos, uniforms, etc), the actors had to wear generic-looking uniforms in both films. The Jordan movie is on YouTube. Go to 1:13:16 to see the Bulls uniforms in the movie. However, the Rodman movie is not. Here's the ABC promo (plus a small clip of the Spurs "logo" at 0:08) Anyone else know any other sports logo/stadium inaccuracies in TV Shows or Movies? Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Soccer, etc.
