BUG: Sometimes the ball will pass right through a player if the player is too close to a boundary when the ball rebounds off it.

BUG: At kickoff, the top team's kicker can only get the ball while moving forward. The bottom teams kicker can get the ball moving in any direction.

BUG: The back fo the box says there are two skill levels - amateur and pro. There is actually only one skill leve; the difficulty switches have no effect on the game.
