Re: Famous Redskins Fans

I think Dirtyskin21 created a new thread (all the while complaining his threads always get merged/massaged by the mods) about celeb fans. SmootSmack merged his new thread with this old one, which bumped this old one.

NO actually, I made a thread, and it was locked and sayed to refer to "Dale Earnhardt Jr is a redskin fan"

But that wasn't my thread, and no one would have seen my post if the title wasn't changed. My thread was never merged, I copy and pasted my thread that got closed onto a post in here. I asked the MOD if the title of the thread could be changed, and if you don't know what's going, you shouldn't open your mouth. Next time just let things you dont know about, be.

It was a good try though.

Why post here, though? It seems this thread answered your question.

Re: Famous Redskins Fans

Never saw 'The Replacements'. Someone else said it was based loosely on the Redskins.

I do know that Gene Hackman wore a Redskins coat in a movie with Dan Ackroyd -- the plot took place in D.C.

"Loose Cannons" was the movie -- a cinematic masterpiece I might add.

Alot of them have been verified through personal experience. People have seen these celebs state they are redskin fans, or they have said something like "how bout those redskins" after we have beaten dallas which verifies they are skin fans. When famous people get season tickets someone is bound to see them and then thats how these get out. I dont think people try to hide who they root for. lol

yeah loosely based on the 1987 replacement team.

Hackman was great in another DC movie...DC Cab! No seriously, Enemy of the State

Some of it was shot in Virginia. I remember having to scuba dive in the quary they shot they very first scene of that movie in. You know when the trophy is underwater? that's a quary in Virginia. I got my scuba diving license about 8-9 years ago and in order to get your license you have to go through 2 weeks of classroom tests and stuff, then you gotta do the pool tests and then they teach you how to use your equipment in the water in the pool, and in order to get your license you have to complete 3 dives and we had to go to that Quary. I dont remember exactly where it was but it was COLD and its preyy cool, its surrounded by huge rocks.

Re: Famous Redskins Fans

The Replacements movie is a comedy which was made and released in 2000. the film follows the fortunes of a group of football players who have been brought from various walks of life to replace the striking professional football players. The film was roughly based on the strike by NFL players in 1987.

Re: Famous Redskins Fans

The movie is notset in 1987. It is not based on the 1987 players strike, other than the fact that in 1987 there was a players strike and they used replacements. At no point does the movie say "Based on a True Story", nor do they EVER reveal the year to be 1987. Similarly, this movie is not set in the NFL, but rather an unnamed fictional league (much like in "Any Given Sunday"). They never mention the NFL, you never see the NFL logo. Therefore, any "mistake" which references a NFL rule or team is not a mistake at all, since the rules and teams in this fictional league may be different from the NFL.
