The Favourites

Coach Gordon Bombay

Coaches

Coach of...

The Mighty Ducks/Team USA

Pros:

Gifted player in his day, learnt from the best (Hans), unorthodox training methods, willing to learn from his players.

Cons:

Showed blatant favouritism to Charlie and to the Ducks team in general. There are hundreds of junior ice hockey teams in America and yet nearly all of the Ducks end up on Team USA? Give over.

His tagline...

Every time you touch the ice, remember that it was Hans who taught us to fly.

Coach Eric Taylor

Coach of...

The Dillon Panthers/The East Dillon Lions/The Pemberton Pioneers

Pros

Excellent role model, gives second chances, hot wife, hot daughter, hell of a man in general.

Cons

Doesn't have the full respect of those in power and will inevitably be replaced by Joe McCoy.

Coach Whitey Durham

Coach of...

The Tree Hill Ravens

Pros

No-nonsense attitude, will give you advice on women and just about everything else.

Cons

Nowhere near as charming as other candidates. Not willing to win at all costs. His preoccupation with making sure his star player didn't die from his heart condition almost cost his team the state championship.

Most memorable quote...

You have made a hell of a comeback. You played as team. Even if we lose this thing, it's still a damn fine moral victory. Now, maybe that's okay with you. Maybe you want to look back and tell your grandkids about the state championship you almost won.

The closing argument...

Coach of...

The Miami Sharks

Pros

Motivator, speech giver, a man who's been there and done it.

Cons

Pissed away all his money, chased away anyone loved him, can't stand to see his own face in the mirror.

Most memorable quote...

And I know if I am going to have any life anymore it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch because that is what LIVING is. The six inches in front of your face

The video evidence...

 

Mickey Goldmill

Coaches

Coach of...

Rocky Balboa

Pros

His old school method turned a nobody into the heavyweight champion of the world. Secretly cares about his fighter.

Cons

Jaded, long in the tooth, didn't recognise his fighter's talent until it was almost too late.

Most memorable quote...

GET UP YOU SON OF A BITCH, because Mickey loves you.
