Cuba Gooding Jr. is lucky that Radio cannot be considered a sequel. The actor's career never really recovered after he portrayed the mentally challenged James Robert Kennedy in the 2003 football movie stinker. While Radio escapes this list, here are the ten worst sports movie sequels in the history of cinema.
There were far too many Air Bud movies, and more went directly to DVD releases. I get that they are focused on entertaining children, but surely parents can find something more educational for their tots to tune into.
Though Emilio Estevez (pictured) returned in a diminished role as head coach Gordon Bombay, it's clear the franchise had already lost it's appeal.

Hilary Swank has evolved into one of the more bankable lead female stars in Hollywood, but this title was a real misfire for her early in her career.

There is a reason why Disney could not get the project green lit for a theatrical release. The original Angels in the Outfield (1994) starred credible actors like Danny Glover, Tony Danza, Matthew McConaughey, Adrien Brody and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The sequel, aside from Christopher Lloyd reprising his role, starred the mostly talentless Matthew Lawrence (pictured).

Jackie Earle Haley reprised his role as the star player, Kelly Leak. But no Walter Matthau? No thanks.

Charlie Sheen (pictured) bailed on this second sequel to the original, which truly was just a sad attempt to cash-in on a once witty and successful franchise.

Rocky Balboa is the great American underdog. Stallone's franchise spawned millions of fans and a passionate following. But ask any of those fans which film didn't pack any punch, and they'll tell you Rocky V. Stallone redeemed the series in 2006 with Rocky Balboa, hopefully for the final time.

It's like the studio just did a remake 12 years after the original in order to appeal to a new generation of kids. But why not just re-market the original? Surely that would have been cheaper, and the product would have been of much higher quality. The original is a classic, and it should have been left that way. Michael "Squints" Palledorous did not approve of this sequel.

What happens when you try to replace acting icon Paul Newman with Stephen Baldwin and Gary Busey (pictured)? You get two washed-up actors appearing in a cheesy reality television show decades later.

Bill Murray? Nope. Rodney Dangerfield? Nada. How about a raunchy R rating? Try PG-13. This may be one of the most disappointing sequels of all-time, never mind just in the category of sports movies.
