I know a lot of members here on this site are not American, and don't know much about AMERICAN FOOTBALL "the real football" so i kinda forgive you for not knowing.

And a lot of people have been jumping into the chat box saying, "oh did you see Nolan point out Robin in the football scene?" "Nolan is so smart putting in hints of Robin in the movie"

Well, I'm sorry to say you're wrong! "not really sorry"

We all know that the football scenes were filmed in Pittsburgh at the Steelers stadium. Well, there just so happens to be a wide receiver by the name of Hines Ward on that team (he was just in dancing with the stars awhile back if you saw that), and THAT is who they used in the movie. Sorry to pop your Robin bubbles.

I wonder if any of the people that signed on to this theory simultaneously put down the necklace theory.

Yeah, "real football". Half the time the players hold the "ball" with their hands but sure... "foot"ball...
marvel72 - 12/20/2011, 8:29 AM
"the real football" yeah what the rest of the world calls rugby.

SHHH - 12/20/2011, 9:11 AM

How is it "read football"? I'm an American but I know that our Football is merely a rugby rip-off.
nuck82 - 12/20/2011, 9:24 AM
then you sir are no american!!!
RorMachine - 12/20/2011, 9:26 AM
Yes, I'll concur with most. Rugby but with pads so they don't get boo boos.
Greengo - 12/20/2011, 9:54 AM
They shoulda changed his name.

Seeing Ward's name just kinda knocks me out of the movie for a second -_-

He's a real boy.
nuck82 - 12/20/2011, 10:21 AM
@N OFF ON!!! i didnt know you were in the chat room yesterday when all the members kept coming in saying it was, if so stop checking me out when im not looking.

ThaMessenger07 - 12/20/2011, 10:25 AM

Keep trollin, trollin, trollin... what!
BPStoyle - 12/20/2011, 10:34 AM
I'm American, and not even a sports fan and I know soccer is "the real football."
VanCityKid - 12/20/2011, 10:35 AM
Uhh "Real Football"....?

ArrowToTheKnee - 12/20/2011, 10:42 AM
Real football? Don't you mean the game where they actually kick the ball with their feet?

Moron
RorMachine - 12/20/2011, 10:49 AM
Honestly I've never so much as watched 5 mins of it, I just wanted to wind up Nuck:)
SHHH - 12/20/2011, 10:49 AM
SUH!

batmanrises - 12/20/2011, 10:50 AM
Hating on America is the new "America is Number One!". Get over yourselves, Europeans...lol! I wonder how many brain injuries come out of Rugby vs Football. Not to mention missing teeth and broken bones...Keep skipping the protection, I guess their brains are too underdeveloped to protect.
RorMachine - 12/20/2011, 10:53 AM
I think we can all agree on one thing here..America thinks it's the best and everywhere else knows different!
SHHH - 12/20/2011, 10:56 AM
Rugby My As#

Why do I get the feeling this site is digging its own grave lately? Posting false headlines, lame headlines, biased statements taking aim at other people, etc...

Is that football comment really necessary? This is the only news site Ive been to where the staff actually pokes at non Americans in a very rude and insulting way. Pathetic.
golden123 - 12/20/2011, 11:00 AM
American Football is the amazing. All yall non-Americans are just jealous that you don't have an awesome sport native to your country. You guys take the name football to literally, for our Football is the real Football!
golden123 - 12/20/2011, 11:02 AM
@beneaththewoods: Didn't you say in another comment you were done with this site? Way to keep your word.
RorMachine - 12/20/2011, 11:06 AM
Actually, in all seriousness American Football IS a variation on Rugby which was invented by the Brits..so yeah, not really "native"..but then again neither are you unless you happen to wear a head dress and do rain dances..

I'm JOKING!:)
SHHH - 12/20/2011, 11:07 AM
I Prefer To Watch A Sport Were They Actually Score..

@logicoflame you would hope people knew that but they didnt and they dont, thats why i made the article, but it seemed to turn into a rugby vs football article lol and i could take the blame for that for saying "real football" but you could also say im an asshole and that was my whole reason for doing that
Redhood88 - 12/20/2011, 11:14 AM
You wanna know what I think is cute? Strapping on full body armour just to play some damaged version of rugby.

You Yanks...
Doctorwho22 - 12/20/2011, 11:16 AM
is this really happening?
UncleDrew - 12/20/2011, 11:16 AM
People are stupid, they said they were gonna use real players before
Greengo - 12/20/2011, 11:17 AM
You were saying, Ror?

nuck82 - 12/20/2011, 11:19 AM
lol if they miss bush tell them to go back to the 60s
RorMachine - 12/20/2011, 11:19 AM
I was saying...something that has next to nothing to do with that picture you posted?
ElBeaster - 12/20/2011, 11:20 AM
This is biased journalism at its finest. I commend you, sir.
nuck82 - 12/20/2011, 11:25 AM
