Default Teams Now Compelled to Participate in Hard Knocks

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/...os-hard-knocks

The NFL will guarantee participation of NFL teams for the HBO show Hard Knocks.

The measure passed by a vote at the fall league meeting being held in Washington. The move eliminates some of the scrambling that has occurred in the past getting teams to go on the show. Now the NFL has the authority to compel a team to be on the show.

Teams that have appeared on the show in the last 10 years, reached the playoffs within two years, or have a new coach can opt out of the pool of potential teams for that year.

i am glad for the opt outs. as much as I am sure I would enjoy and watch if Denver were the team, I really don't want to see the Broncos on this show.

If we win the SB this year, I wouldn't mind seeing us on there. I am 100% sure the team will opt out, though. Just one more reason to make the post season.

Sounds like they had to grant a lot of wiggle room to get this one passed. Those opt out clauses cover most of the League.

Most teams qualify for one or more opt out clauses. This seems pointless.

Well I guess Cincy will be on there for the next 5 or so years. Maybe they can bring Ochocinco back and he can talk about how he doesn't know how to manage his money.

Just curious, why do you say that? I mean if it's not your cup of tea I get it, I won't be that guy that says you are wrong or stupid if you don't like them.

I personally love the show regardless of the team on it, it's just fascinating to me to watch the rookies or bubble guys go through the motions. It's also often times pretty freaking heartbreaking to watch guys get injured and see how it's impacting their lives.

This past season a rookie was hurt and sent to IR and it was just horrible to watch the reaction when he had to tell his folks.

Yeah, I think it's fantastic. Might not be good for the team on it...but it shows a really cool perspective of professional football.

I don't think they're produced well. It's like a reality TV show where they make it seem like something happened and it didn't. It's a distraction for the teams IMO, especially the rookies. I personally don't need that much info on the team because I root for the laundry. If teams wanted to volunteer, cool. I am not cool with compulsion.

You don't think they're produced well?

It's one of the best-produced shows on television, year in and year out, the camera work and editing and sound are all absolutely fantastic. Your opinion is your opinion, I'm just surprised that production value is any part of the issue for you.

so every football coach tells you to bend Frank Gore's head sideways? every football coach says he will pay you money if you hit Alex Smith in the head? every football coach says to hit "32" while he's on the sideline and knock him out of the game? really? hit kyle williams in the head to "test his concussion"? deliberately try to tear Crabtree's ACL? every football coach says that? explicitly ****ing says all of these things on tape? and that doesn't count as evidence?

I do pay attention to that kind of thing, but to be fair...I haven't watched since the Ravens did it after they won their first Super Bowl...so maybe I am being unfair.

Hopefully if we get put on it there are no distractions from having to open up dove valley to the world.

That's what always seems to get certain teams in trouble. They're on the show and somehow a little bit of drama gets enhanced and it becomes a distraction.
