I don’t watch hard knocks as it’s just not interesting to me, but then again I don’t like any reality shows.

 

im just glad the Pegulas are smart enough to know to not be part of shirt show every year.  I want nothing to do with Hard Knocks for the Bills, and I’d lay $neither does Beane and McD.

It has nothing to do with the Pegulas wanting or not wanting...

 

It's a set of rules that show which teams have the chance to be on or not.

They will start covering the Colts about a week before our game with them. So the Bills/Colts game should figure prominently in the 2nd episode. 

 

Yeah, I was just going to post something similar.  The Bills play the Colts in OP on the 21st.

they will follow a team during the season?  seems like a huge distraction.  

 

Folks jump to say this about Hard Knocks, but it never has been, and I dont remember anyone ever complaining about it.

 

These guys already have a ton of media and stuff in their lives. It becomes part of the job. And most of the time, the Hard Knocks cameras are just stand-alone surveillance cameras setup in the room.

 

I think the idea of it being a distraction only comes from us commoners who dont already have the news/media hovering over us 24/7 like the players do.

In season reality shows just prove how little the NFL cares about the actual product. 

I think they care about the product. They just have different goals/vision for the product than we do.

 

Believe it or not, Hard Knock has been a popular show, so here we are.

 

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bills on it. There was an article a couple weeks ago about McDermott "embracing the fame" so to speak.

Trying really hard and can't think of a more boring team

I'd say any NFCE team, Rams, Texans, Lions, Broncos, Saints, Bucs....all less interesting to me.

Oh yeah, Hard Knocks is definitely popular, but I don’t see how following a team during the season is positive from a competitive prospective. As long as Brady and Mahomes are throwing for 400 yards a game, the NFL doesn’t care about true quality. The average fan is investing more money in the game than ever before, but those fans don’t necessarily understand the intricacies of the game. Any decline in the on field isn’t going to be noticed by the average fan. Stunts like Hard Knocks in season, international games, and expanding the season, doesn’t seem like the best way to get the most out of players, but maybe my take is just a bit old school.

The issue I would have is if the Colts are allowed to "edit" hard knocks, I certainly wouldn't want to air my plans on national TV or give any hint of what is going on.

And gambling! The NFL has invested big time in the betting business. That's doing the most to ruin the game, in my opinion.
