    Do you guys remember how Tomlin got kinda punked by Santa a while back?
    Next will be cheerleaders as mandatory props. Actually Steeler Cheerleader tryouts may get my attention
    While I do appreciate a little flash, I'm actually really proud that the Steelers don't have cheerleaders.

    When it comes to HK, it just seems to me that we have already have fans and media reading into every little thing people associated with the team say and do. This only gets amplified with a show like that. "Did you see on Hard Knocks how Ben didn't say 'hello' to Bruce in the QB meeting? He must think Bruce is out to get his job..." Blah, blah, blah.

    I want to see this. It doesn't have to be dramatic for me to enjoy it. I'm surprised every fan doesn't want to see it. This would be like a dream come true imho.

    I would enjoy Hard Knocks, seeing the facility and watching the assistant coaches
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    It would probably be cool and interesting, but if the coaches don't want it then I don't either. Most people wouldn't want cameras following them around as they do their job. It's not like the Steelers are suffering from a lack of media attention.

    No one would want to watch us do our daily jobs. That would be boring tv. The Steelers doing their jobs are completely different.

    I think having HBO cameras inside the facility ruins the facade. They won't be able to pretend there's this special mystery any longer most likely. There's a reason they don't want the cameras.

    The reason might just be that they don't want to have to bother with them. There seems to be enough other teams that would be happy to have them.

    If anyone has seen "the Office" then they know that compelling TV can be made from the most mundane of office jobs. There are other shows that are probably more on point, but it still follows.

    Since I can't typically go to training camp, Hard Knocks would be great for the Steelers Nation who aren't local. However, I don't like the circus atmosphere it creates and the distractions.

    I will rely on you guys posting info and great insights. Wait! Maybe Hard Knocks isn't a bad idea
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Ha if a film crew followed me around at my job they would never be able to air the show I'm the definition of politically incorrect.

    Don't be so sure. Cameras follow chefs, crab fisherman, child dance instructors, pawn shop owners, tattoo artists, arctic truck drivers, and people who make duck calls for a living. Etc., etc., etc.
