Fun Football Show with THE ROCK

There is no sex, just kissing (barely). Although there is profanity such as f-ck, sh-t, and b-tch. I feel comfortable with letting my children watch shows with profanity, because I know that they know not to repeat it, but in the end it comes down to whether or not you feel comfortable with your kids watching shows with language.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
age 16+
Ballers is a good show for anyone interested in management and football or glamour. But it has far too much sex scenes.
