Saints are now eligible for HBO's Hard Knocks series

Didn't see this already posted

Despite the difficulty each year in finding a team willing to participate, NFL Films announced on July 18, 2013, that it had signed a "multiyear" contract extension with HBO to continue producing the show.[7]

On October 8, 2013, the NFL announced that one team each year will be required to participate in Hard Knocks. Teams may still volunteer to be on the show. Teams with new coaches, teams that have been in the playoffs at least once in the past 2 years, or teams that have done the show once in the past 10 years are exempt from being forced into appearing on the show. [8]

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

Not surprised the league is forcing teams into this. It's all about the exposure and the money.

Can't say I've ever watched an episode of that series.

I love Hard Knocks. I even enjoyed the year when it was the Falcons.

If Payton leaves, then we are NOT eligible for "Hard Knocks," right? New coach is one of the exclusions.

Just watch Goodell use the new rule they passed, to force this on Payton just to show that Goodell can do it. I can already see it coming a mile away.

Not interested at all. Don't want it to be us.

They won't make us do it. We cancelled joint practices with the Texans this preseason because "Hard Knocks" would've been filming it. We would never cooperate if chosen.

Unfortunately Godhell will probably force the Saints to go on the program just to get even for stealing the Lombardi from Peyton and the Colts.

Although, it could back fire on him and the Saints become the darlings of the NFL again. Still, I don't want the exposure. I like flying under the radar.
