Troy does not want Cory to experience the hardships and injustices he felt trying to become a baseball player, so he wants Cory to work after school instead of practicing with the football team.

Troy doesn't see that times are changing, and doesn't allow his son Cory to pursue his football career, because of what happened to Troy when he tried to make it big in baseball.

Now that Cory is getting recruited to play football at college, Troy simply cannot see that things would be different for his son now that the times were moving forward for black professional athletes. The motivation behind Troy being so against his son playing football stems from his bitterness about not being able to pursue his dreams in playing baseball.

Oh, this movie. This movie, has to be the my least favorite movies I have watched so far. It 's over-complicated, boring, and confusing all in one, the trinity of pretentiousness that the people who give this movie 100% on rotten tomatoes, that means it beats "The Thing" "Cabin in The Woods" "Anomilisa" and one of my favorite shows, "Neon Genisis Evangelion", who of which doesn 't even have a critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. "The Maltese Falcon" is in no way a bad movie, just painfully bland and boring. If I give away anything important to the movie, I 'm sorry, but I won 't really care.
