I really liked the ending. A hilarious spoof on all the Mighty Ducks-style movies. Also, some good one-liners from Randy.
But the narrator guy...it wasn't funny after the third time and it needed a conclusion.
Also, this was the nearest South Park has come to offending me. I really don't think joking about cancer can ever be funny, to be honest. That's my opinion. Also, the Irwin jokes weren't particularly funny, they were obviously only in there to get at the people who complained last time. But I wouldn't have bothered.
I don't think that M&T had the intention to rip on that persé but they sure as hell ripped on the people that don't know how to behave when theyre around or involved with someone having cancer, which is more rediculous than letting the little boy die in the end of the show.
Also, when they started on the "Steve Irwin" thing again I was like "Holy sh*t, they are asking for it" XD
At least they have enough respect to call him by his first name. ^^;
Narrator guy with the record got annoying after the first few times and I stopped finding him funny. I also didn't like the ending because it just didn't seem to en to me. I wasn't expecting it to end when it did.
Overall, a good episode though and a nice way to finish the season in what seems now traditional - with an episode centered around Stan. (infact Cartman didn't even appear in it and Kyle had like one line.)
Of course, it's a shame that now the season has ended but I'm looking forward to season 11.
Oh, and the Steve Irwin jokes were great! XD

Neither do I. I can understand disliking it, but the sheer amount of hate this episode has gotten leaves me baffled.
It's so easy to figure out why a lot of people on this board hate the episode, it's because they don't get South Park humor. I too can understand why some might not have thought the episode wasn't good or funny, but to hate something is absolutely f*cking ridiculous. There's other things way more important in this world to hate instead of some comical cartoon. If you didn't like it or thought it was in bad taste that's fine, I can respect that, but to hate it just makes you look like a emotion basket case.
As for myself, I really enjoyed the episode. It was hilarious and it was different. At times it reminded me of Basketball and at others it reminded me of a few 80's flicks. The Blur song was classic for me because most of the hockey games i've been to (30+) they play that song. The look on the fathers face when he was hugging his son at the end was hysterical.
Yeah, Killa, that song is so cliche, that was why it awesome that they put it in there.
Anyways, I thought all the kids were soooooooo cute! It's so funny how kids can ask small questions that have a huge impact. I also thought that the scene where the little kids were playing in the "majors" was funny! I know that sounds horrible, but maybe because it was so horrible it made the scene funny. I do think that they are really pushinig it with the whole Crocadile Hunter death jokes. First time wasn't so bad. I also didn't think that the kid having cancer was funny at all. My mom has cancer and it's been really devistating to my whole family. Cancer isn't really something you should joke about. I guess you really wouldn't know untill someone close to you has it and you go through the emotions.
The only good Slash is the one from Guns N' Roses.
the movie announcer guy was pretty funny. and the first time that kid said he had cancer made me laugh. but overall there were not enough jokes to sustain the ep, it even got boring at some points from the repetitiveness. not the best way to end this season imo, which otherwise was pretty good. 6/10
Not only were the cliches stupid but there was absolutely no plot which is a huge let down because thats the thing that makes southpark so amazing. That and the amazing characters, but there wasn't even any character development in this episode. Only stan who isn't really funny without the rest of the gang, at least in this episode. The only remotely funny part was the references to the pee wee players' parents...
What exactly was funny about the red wings beating up the pee wee team? I was dumbfounded, just watching and waiting for something to make sense and click, something to bring it all together... unfortunately it was a scam. It was as if they slacked off this week and didn't think of anything ingenius like they have ALWAYS done. I think thats why this episode was such a let down.
As for the boy with cancer... I realize its a show and it isn't meant to be offensive, but what was the point of portraying the sick boy? Was that supposed to be funny? At least the Steve Irwin joke was funny the first time it was used because it was ironic and no one had ever expected him to die the way he did. And sadly enough even that joke was butchered in this episode.
Overall, the episode was dumb, boring, and a huge let down. I mean if matt and Trey were gonna make such a horrible plot/theme/episode they should at least used cartman as the main character cause then it would have at least been mildly entertaining.
This episode made me think that Matt and Trey are just running out of things to write about. Please don't me lose hope again.... please
Let me know if you guys agree/disagree...
