      • The show gets many of the historical details correct. However the Rams also signed Woody Strode in addition to Kenny Washington in 1946. And Kenny Washington was not the "first African American" pro football player. As Simms said "the league didn't let" blacks "back in until 1946." There were a few black players in the NFL up until 1933. Additionally, in 1946 the Cleveland Browns of the new AAFC signed Bill Willis and Marion Motley. (The Browns moved to the NFL in 1950.)
        There are various web pages and at least one book covering the segregation and the re-integration of football for anyone interested in finding out more.

      • The onscreen credit of the director reads Hayma "Screech" Washington.
