Your Next NFL Team To Be Featured On HBO's Hard Knocks Is?!?!

Tuesday, May 06, 2008


If you've been reading the site for awhile you should be plenty aware of my affinity for the HBO Show Hard Knocks. Well prepare for the biggest soap opera of a team that the network could get. Via Dallas News....

The Dallas Cowboys are not only going back to California for training camp, they are expected to once again invite HBO to broadcast their every move.

A deal is "imminent" that will allow NFL Films to film five to six weeks of training camp in Oxnard, Calif. and air it on the HBO show Hard Knocks, according to a source.

Training camp opens in late July. Last season, the Cowboys held training camp in San Antonio.
I thought this was a bad idea at first considering they already covered the Cowboys in 2002, but that team had a guitar playing backup QB as the main storyline and this team has Ms. Jessica Simpson, T.O., and Pacman Jones. As much as I can't stand the Cowboys they are equally intriguing to me. They're a great choice as far as viewership goes, and any team is going to be more exciting than the Kansas City Chiefs.

Even though I love the Redskins, you are right. This should be intriguing.

Sure, the Cowboys will garner high ratings and make for good TV, but I'd rather just watch any old team make its way through camp and whittle down its roster. I thought the Chiefs' camp was very interesting.

It doesn't help that I HATE the Cowboys, either.

They already were on Hard Knocks. Then again that was at an all-time low for the franchise with the likes of Dave Campo and Quincy Carter. What a buzz kill. Ross Greenburg can burn in hell. Really, any team but them!

Stay tuned next week to see if Jessica Simpson can sneak in and out of the SMU dormatories on a Wednesday night!

The success of the season will depend entirely on how much access HBO gets to the Cowboys' interesting players. I want to go gun shopping with Tank and strip club hopping with Pacman. And I want a camera in the room when Jessica Simpson visits Romo at camp.

Can we change the name to Hard Knockers?
