Commercials. Meeting between the Lions and the Panthers at the coffee shop. The police still haven't figured out who did the damage to the Lions' field, they're still in the process of checking every truck in town out. Joe butts in and says that every parent of a kid on the team has been contacted, and every player is accounted for: "This was not retaliation." Buddy is like "Retaliation?" and Joe is like "For the toothpicks?" and Buddy is like "Yeah, that's a prank, did you even see what you did to our field?" And at that, all the grown men around the table except for Coach and Wade start shouting at and accusing one another. The conference director bangs a bottle of hot sauce on the table and shouts for them to quiet down. The camera swings around and we see that hordes of people have gathered outside the coffee shop and are pressed up against the window, doing their own shouting and pleading and accusing. Inside the shop, the conference director reminds them all that this "is just a football game." Which finally makes Coach Taylor speak up: "Hey, you know what? My family has been receiving threatening phone calls all night, my home has been vandalized, and my field has been destroyed, so don't patronize us and tell us this is just a football game." The director apologizes and says he's just going to cut to the chase. He's spent the last 24 hours on the phone talking to every school in the area, but with the short notice and the Thanksgiving holiday, they couldn't find a neutral site. "But, there is a proposal from West Dillon...." Assistant Coach for the Lions stands up and is like "You have got to be kidding me, this is OUR home game" and the table erupts once again. But you can see in Coach Taylor's dejected shoulders and very UNsassy hair that the fight is already over.
