Here's how they figure out what team is on Hard Knocks: team did not make the playoffs in the last two years, were not on the show the last 10 years and/or do not have a first-year head coach. Then again if no team volunteered to be on the show, the NFL has the power to "force" a team to do it.

I'd rather not see the Saints on this show but looks like they don't have much say in the matter

I miss NFL Europe, it was the closest thing the NFL came to having a minor league system and it game me something to watch during the spring since I loathe the NBA

The league still will ask for volunteers. If one is not forthcoming, a team will be appointed. All organizations will be eligible with the exception of those that have a first-year head coach; teams that have made the playoffs in at least one of the last two seasons; and teams that have participated in the previous 10 seasons. "


Owners pass 'Hard Knocks' rule at NFL Fall Meeting - NFL.com

So I guess Goodell would be the one enforcing it but the decision comes from the owners themselves.

W.T. Sherman is my favorite General. After all he did order Atlanta to be burned to the ground.

Hard knocks at the Briarwood country club. Now that is how you get a team ready to win a Lombardi.

Guess I'm in the minority. I have watched the show and I think all seasons (HBO GO). I wouldn't mind the Saints being on it, I like seeing the other side of the football "industry', even though it is selective glimpses.

I agree.

I'll take Hard Knocks this year, if it happens in Mississippi.

I actually really like the show too!

I remember the 2009 Bengals hard knocks, we played them in preseason and Brees threaded a TD pass between 3 defenders, all it showed was the defensive coaches saying " Jesus F'ing Christ" LOL.

It's not going to be the Saints.

Teams are moving to L.A., second biggest TV market in the US. It'd be one of the teams moving to/back to L.A., most likely the Rams: prodigal sons return to L.A. I'd think, the NFL would be all about that.

It makes for a bunch of great storylines and would help in creating even more interest in that market. It would make a great deal of sense from a marketing standpoint.
