Why Is The Damned United Rated R?

The sexual expletive is pervasively used, along with other mild and moderate profanities. Many characters smoke and engage in drinking, often to the point of drunkenness. Sports violence is seen in both newsreels of real sporting events and game-play choreographed for the movie. Some blood is shown during the hard-hitting action. The bare buttocks of men in a shower room are briefly shown.
