“Hard Knocks”, an HBO show that follows an NFL team throughout training camp to give fans an inside look at how a team functions, has been entertaining fans since it’s revival in 2007. Teams like Dallas, Cincinnati, the Jets, and others have been the subject of the documentary-like show and now it looks as though Roger Goodell wants to take more control of the show and which teams are featured on it. The show began in 2001 and continued in 2002, but then was discontinued until 2007 and has been shown every year since except 2011 when HBO decided that with the issues with the league’s collective bargaining agreement and potential lockout that the show wouldn’t be made in 2011. If Goodell has his way, different teams will have the opportunity to be the subject of the show. This year, the Bengals will be the subject for the second time in four years. In an interview with bengals.com, Goodell praised Cincinnati’s decision to be the subject of “Hard Knocks” in 2013, but said that he’d like to get more teams involved in the future. “We’re talking about some kind of formal rotation where teams participate in the show on a more regular basis,” Goodell told the Bengals’ team site last week. “Not necessarily more frequently, but on a regular basis so that it is a shared obligation and it would give more teams an opportunity to have this.” Although the Bengals agreed to a second go-around with the show (Dallas and the Bengals are the only teams to repeat on the show), not every team is eager to have fans get an inside look at their system. In the past, teams like the Buccaneers, Seahawks, and Jets have all turned down opportunities to be featured on the show at one point or another.   What do you think? Do you want to see more teams participate in “Hard Knocks”? Is this a good idea? Or just an attempt to get the small market teams more exposure?
