Characters[edit]

You can really see some characters start to develop in this episode. The dog that Sparky has sex with at football practice belongs to a kid that looks like Clyde, but sounds like Butters. Also, the leader of the Middle Park team is the leader of the 6th graders. AznWarlord (talk) 17:37, 2 November 2008 (UTC)

At the football game between south park and middle park you can see a robot arm on ned that seems to come from nowhere, i want to know what's up with this little tid bit of random weirdness — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.61.219.16 (talk) 07:56, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Michael Jackson[edit]

Can someone cite a source where it says that this Michael Jackson comment was cut? It seems more to me that the "cut" was intentional by Matt and Trey (ie: Michael Jackson was never mention, but implied,) similar to "cutting" in a later episode where Mr Garrison says "Well at least we got rid of all them damn n-". The cut is an implication, rather than an actual cut. Orichalcon 11:39, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I don't think he ever said Michael Jackson, it was just widely assumed that he said this since the cut is so abrupt and it's such an easy conection for people to make. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.254.145.54 (talkcontribs) 21:57, 6 September 2006 (UTC).
Actually, I once saw an airing about half a year or so ago where the announcer did say the whole thing, which included a mention of Micheal Jackson. Unfortunately I wasn't able to record it, but I do distinctly remember seeing that on TV. On my Season One DVD though, the line is cut. X-pert74 00:07, 15 October 2006 (UTC)
You're wrong. It's NEVER said "Michael Jackson". Orichalcon is correct, The whole joke is that the implication is strong enough and the name doesn't need to be said. I recall being a member of a South Park mailing list running in late 1997 and upon one of the first reruns of the episode, the topic of this "cut" came up. Many users chimed in to confirm that it was missing in the very first airing. The only reference for the cut Michael Jackson comment comes from user-submitted and non-referenced sources such as Wikipedia and TV.com. 203.217.32.251 23:29, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
No, I'm not wrong. I specifically remember hearing Michael Jackson's name being mentioned in one of the reruns. Once it reruns again, I'll check again for confirmation. X-pert74 20:34, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
It's odd that everyone "remembers" it yet there's not one shred of proof. Not a sound grab. Not a video clip. Everyone's heard it, but no one has an old VHS tape of it? No one with an old RealMedia clip (as they used to be pirated in back in 1997?) Not a single WAV or MP3 clip? It's nothing but an urban legend. People "remember" it because of the blatant Michael Jackson implication...WHICH WAS THE JOKE. The abrupt cut makes them presume it was censorship. Just because you "remember" it doesn't mean it happened -- you'll find people that claim "Episode IV" was onscreen when they saw Star Wars in 1977 even though it wasn't added until 1980. You'll find people claiming that "Hannibal" was more gruesome theatrically.
If you want to check for confirmation, do so. But until their IS confirmation it shouldn't be on Wikipedia. 203.217.42.157 03:04, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Does John Stamos have a brother?[edit]

Does John Stamos have a brother? That article says no, this article says yes. Inconsistency abounds. --Fire Star 火星 01:07, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Final Score[edit]

Winning a game 76-3 does not cover the 70-point spread. 64.199.42.122 19:00, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

  • The end score was 73-6, which does. Mac OS X 17:04, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
    • I thought 6 plus 70 is 76 which is greater than 73 thus the spread wasn't beat? Benjiboi 22:01, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

White Token Trivia[edit]

The trivia section lists two Butters's and one white Token, however if you look closely you can see the top of another white Token's head near the center of the top row. Mac OS X 17:04, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Geroge Clooney[edit]

It says that george clooney is the voice of stan's dog. I think it's highly unlikely, I'm not changing it until atleast 5 people tell me it is false. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.203.24.88 (talk) 23:05, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, and they were obviously joking when they were talking about Clooney being a big reason for their success. Learn to distinguish humour from truth guys. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.109.132.231 (talk) 23:42, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Lede[edit]

Resolved

I think the sentence - The Christian advocacy group Colorado for Family Values cited the episode's embracing of homosexuality when they voiced opposition to the 1999 release of the South Park film, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. - should be moved from the lede. The group was an anti-gay group more than a "Christian advocacy group". They seem to only be known for trying to pass Amendment 2 which would remove antidiscrimination laws that protected LGBT people. Also this episode is not known for this so let's give it only due weight. -- Banjeboi 15:53, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

"The episode also mocks the hatred and misunderstandings about homosexuality often expressed by zealots and right-wing extremists who regularly attack LGBT people and culture, including Christian ministers Jerry Falwell and Fred Phelps."

Anyone else feeling a bit of a bias in favor of homosexual rights advocates in that phrase? It isn't a direct quote by someone (and if it is, it isn't notated as such), so we have to ensure that neutrality is talking here. Using words such as 'hatred and misunderstandings', 'zealots', and 'extremists' with a sensitive topic like this is really stepping over the line. It could be neutralized by replacing words like 'extremists' with 'advocates', 'activists' or 'personalities'. Could also change the first phrase to "...also mocks what many LGBT rights advocates perceive as..." to ensure that this is the view of a certain sociopolitical movement, not of Wikipedia itself. I'll tag this on my watchlist, if there's no response in a day or two I'll take the initiative here. Dab8fz (talk) 04:16, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
