In the film, the characters use the expletive 'f**k' on occasion for emphasis. Other coarse language such as 'damn', 'sh*t' and 'bastard' are also used. Goddamn-2; Hell-1; Damn-1; BS-2; S-2; Bastard-1; A..hole-1

The film has a very brief scene where an NFL player is seen sniffing a blanket. It is later revealed that the player was sniffing superglue to relieve the symptoms of his brain damage.

A lot of talk about NFL players using painkillers, legal and otherwise, to keep themselves in the game.
