I am afraid that it would be a distraction. But I love the show and imagine if we went all the way and won the SB again, how cool it would be to have camp and all that recorded like that.

"Hard Knocks" in West Virginia? At the resort they call "camp?" I guess they'll get a good look at the bounce house, Dutch oven cook off and the annual Catalina Wine Mixer.

Pffft.

Re: Saints bracing for involuntary Hard Knocks assignment

That show needs to die. The media has more than enough access with interviews and all that. This show really butts into things that shouldn't be anyone's business, in my opinion. So if a team wants to do the show, that's fine. But no one should be FORCED to allow cameras in when the team is practicing, or players are being cut. I know Sean said he wouldn't allow the latter, but will they REALLY leave him with any choice in the matter?

The very fact that this show has to have the NFL mandate that some team participates every year is why this show needs to go. It reminds me of being forced to play with some kid you can't stand...

"Mom that annoying kid won't leave me alone, can you tell him to go home?"

"Son, you need to go play with that annoying boy who always whine's, and who no one likes because of it... If you don't, he'll think no one likes him".

"But mom, you just said it, no one likes him!".

"Don't argue, just go do it".

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Saints bracing for involuntary Hard Knocks assignment

With both Ryan brothers in Buffalo and needing to drum up interest in the Rams new market it's hard to see what interest there would be in us.

Re: Saints bracing for involuntary Hard Knocks assignment

Saints are bracing for the possibility of the league tapping them on the shoulder and directing them to be the subject of the annual Hard Knocks series.

directing them

Tell them to F off based on principle alone.

The Falcons volunteered in 2014.
They're dumb; maybe they'll do it again.

Re: Saints bracing for involuntary Hard Knocks assignment

I'd like to see some of these lawyers for the team grow a pair and find something either in the legal verbiage or some obscure code to tell the league to go F' themselves...

Re: Saints bracing for involuntary Hard Knocks assignment

This is Goodell's way of distracting the Saints, knowing that we dont want to participate in the show.
