Robbie De Niro has followed in the footsteps of his Heat co-star Alan Pacino and decided to appear as an NFL coach on the silver screen. Not a man to be outdone the star of the recent Everybody's fine is being lined up to play the role of NFL Legend Vince Lombardi who rebuilt the Green Bay Packer into a 5 time winning force in the 60's.
All the film needs now is a blonde in the mould of Cameron Diaz and two rappers akin to LL Cool J and Jamie Foxx and done, you have a film that will be quoted by managers in all sports across the world.
Here are some gems you can expect from De Niro as Vince -
“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while…you do them right all the time.”
“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive, and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.”
“Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”
How long before we get a Roy Keane flick with prawn sandwiches and chats about Alfie Inge, I wonder?
