Saints May Be Featured On HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks’
The New Orleans Saints are on a short list of teams that can't refuse if the NFL selects them to be featured on the HBO series, "Hard Knocks" this off season. Head coach Sean Payton doesn't seem too thrilled about the idea. The show goes inside the training camp of an NFL franchise. A report from Mike Fiorio of NBC Sports, says coach Payton has expressed his unwillingness to allow cameras in the room while players are being cut.
“I said this once at the start of my career, I’ll never be videotaped releasing a player. I don’t find it appropriate." -Sean Payton
Payton additionally admonished his players not to fight during joint practices with the Patriots last season. There are six other teams that can't refuse to be on the show. They are the Bears, Rams, Bills, Chargers, Raiders, & Jaguars.
