Melanie Barnett (Tia Mowry) is a young an intelligent first-year medical student who is the girlfriend of professional football rookie named Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall). Melanie passes up the opportunity to attend Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to be with Derwin after he is chosen to play for the San Diego Sabers.

As Melanie tries to adjust to her new football life, she gets guidance from Tasha Mack (Wendy Raquel Robinson), the mother and manager of Sabers’ starting quarterback — hot-headed Malik El Debarge Wright (Hosea Chanchez). Level-headed Kelly Pitts (Brittany Daniel) is the wife of the Sabers’ captain, cheap Jason Pitts (Coby Bell), and welcomes Melanie with open arms and helpful advice.

    Please! Please! Please! “Allow The Game to come back!” Come on BET support our African American shows there are some faithful viewers out there, the show was just getting good. I view all the re-runs but it’s not the same once you keep looking at it over and over but I do because I love The Game that much. Come on people lets support our young people out there and keep this show going.

    the game is a great show. i defantly would petition to keep that show going. beleive it or not that show is an impact on i’m quite sure alot of peoples including myself lifes. it’s funny, sad, upsetting, and happy all at once. in other words it takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride. it’s real. it’s true reality between men and woman. and you step outside yourself and face truth. what it really is rather than what we think it is. very refreshing. you don’t see a show when you watch game, you see life and you live it. you react the same way. you cry the same way. and you shout, yell, and scream the same way. now that’s worth financing. how could any station not want to give the people this show. i would watch a movie of this show. and follow every movie episode. any commercial should want to be in a slot with them because everybody would be watching it. a station would get paid!!!!!

    I think BET should pick up the show. This is one of my favorite shows. I watch the re-runs everytime they come on. The last show had me on my toes. I was like I wonder what’s going to happen next!! Then BOOM!!! the show was cancelled. PLEASE BET PICK UP THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!

    Keep The Game!!! It is awesome! And I love the cast! They are amazing for the show. If you get new cast members the show wouldn’t be the same!!

    I think you should keep the show. If you have to have an hour long show you should spin it off into two 3o min show. One should be about the sabers and Jason moving into a sport caster role. Then have another 30 min show about Derwin and Mel being traded to another team and the show focus on Mel working in a hospital. It will alow the creators to introduce a host of new cast that work at the hospital.
