Plane crash occurs in an instant (an electrical zap on screen), followed by black screen, then shots of flaming wreckage in the woods; funerals show weeping, upset familes; football action is hard-hitting (bodies slam, fall, fly through the air in slow motion, with loud sound effects); painful injuries (moaning, crumpled players); some emotional arguments (in one, a coach yells at, then pushes a player to the ground).
