I don't recall that ever being an issue... Are you sure you're not thinking about Any Given Sunday?
you remember back in the day when Smith was just a punt returner and couldn't get a shot at playing WR........and all the teammates went into the coaches office and put there jerseys on the coaches desk wanting him to have there roster spot for the game. At the end of the game it didn't appear he would get in the but a slow chant from the sidelines began....and soon filled the entire stadium. Steve. Steve. Steve. Steve. . And the coach put him in.
It was pretty awesome.
