Rollerball Anyone?

The year is 2018. There is no crime and there are no more wars. Corporations are now the leaders of the world, as well as the controllers of the people. A violent futuristic game known as Rollerball is now the recreational sport of the world, with teams representing various areas competing for the title of champion.

That’s from the IMDb [1] plot summary for 1975’s Rollerball. I have no idea why I thought to look it up ten seconds after taking in the updated Citi Field slide show [2] on mets.com, revised to reflect the ballpark logo [3] that was introduced yesterday. No idea at all.
