HBO will be hard pressed to find an NFL team to do "Hard Knocks" series

Only journalists or major networks that the team trusts are being granted interviews or able to grab sound bites.  And those are mainly because they are required to do so with media obligation requirements.

The “Hard Knocks” series could be in serious jeopardy since teams aren’t required to participate.  Every team in the NFL has taken notice after the Saints suspensions that anyone is fair game for punishments the NFL deems necessary.

With cameras and microphones posted everywhere, teams may be paranoid that the devices will catch something being done or said that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could rain down firey justice on.

Ironically, the Saints have been in consideration the past three seasons filmed, to which they always declined.  The last time the show aired was before the lockout last year and featured the New York Jets.

It was the most entertaining of the previous shows and up until a few weeks ago, they were thought to be a major contender for a second run.  It looks like now though that the Jets aren’t interested.

    HBO don’t know team want to be recorded you guys cannot be trusted everybody talked about the Saints and how NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should do away with the Saints. How they all done put they foot in they mouths all 31 teams are afriad of Roger Goodell as long as the New Orleans Saints neck were in the noose all the people’s were happy. When all 31 teams just needed to stand up for the Saints when they know all teams play the same kind of games pay-to-performance you can’t hurt one team without the others in the same boat. In 2012 season the eyes not going to be on the Saints Goodell eyes going to be on someone else Saints can walk around with they chest out and head up because the laughter going to be on someone else but remember you guys said Goodell is doing the right thing to the Saints. So you 31 teams watch the hangman one of you guys might be next.
