A year later, there's still no sign of the books, so we have to conclude that they're either populating the bookshelf of some rich asshole or helping a deranged supervillain construct an old-timey rocket to reach the sun, where he will build a sun-throne and rule Sol for eternity. Or burn up, whatever.
Red Bull Specializes In Making Sports Movie Bad Guys
Every sports movie needs a rival team, and every rival team follows two rules: 1) they're clearly better-funded than the protagonists, with nicer uniforms and equipment, and 2) they're jerks. It's like there's some big company that goes around buying sports teams and turning them into soulless machines focused on nothing but winning and profits. Actually, there is. It's called Red Bull.
At some point, the company that made billions by mixing bull testosterone with sugar decided that merely sponsoring teams wasn't enough, and started outright buying them. They don't just write the checks; they also rebrand the team entirely, completely destroying their history. Look at the soccer team SV Austria Salzburg, which had a century-long legacy in their distinctive violet kits. Red Bull instantly renamed them "FC Red Bull Salzburg," replaced their violet kits with white uniforms sporting the Red Bull logo, and changed the stadium to the "Red Bull Arena." They even declared, "this is a new club with no history." We're pretty sure they would have branded the players like cattle if it was legal.

Naturally, fans weren't happy with these developments, so they went and formed their own team. They have the same badge (or as close as legal law will allow), wear the old distinctive violet, and play in a smaller stadium right down the road. This is the part of the movie where the new team slowly climbs to the top of the league, beats the Red Bull shills in a nail-biting penalty shootout, buys the team back with the prize money, and unites the city. Unfortunately this isn't a movie, so Red Bull Salzburg is dominating the Austrian league, while SV Austria Salzburg is three leagues below them, in the middle of the table.
And this isn't an isolated incident. Red Bull also bought/renamed a German soccer team, a New York soccer team, a Formula One team, another Formula One team, a German Ice Hockey team, and even founded a League Of Legends team.
