A minor league football franchise is down on its luck when a rich businessman (Pauly Shore) arrives in town with an offer to buy it. But he gets turned down when he wants to replace most of the players. So instead, he creates a league of his own, stealing the other league's coach (Robert Miano) and top players. The old league's owner is left to assemble a new team in time for the season - and the big game against Shore's team.
