Tampa Bay Bucs Turn Down ‘Hard Knocks’

Yesterday (May 16th) the team announced via Facebook, that they have declined to be this year’s featured team on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” The show, provides an in-depth look at a team during training camp and is widely considered one of the best quality reality shows on television seeing how it’s shot more documentary-style than reality.

The Bucs, were favored because of their on-the-rise new young team, and very quotable free-speaking head coach, Raheem Morris. It was also believed that the Bucs would jump at the opportunity to be featured on the show in an effort to bring publicity to a successful team, that most of the nation knows nothing about. The team also failed to sell out a home game this past season, and had to wonder how the show’s exposure may have influenced revenue.

Ultimately, I guess management took note of how much unwanted media attention the Jets received after being featured last year, and decided against it. A Buccaneers team official has stated that “Hard Knocks” could still be a possibility in 2012 though.
