NOT interested in .....Hark Knocks

Postby tribeofjudah » Wed May 16, 2012 10:44 pm

Shanny has no desire to participate in Hard Knocks. It suits me just fine, as it may become a big distraction.

Count the Washington Redskins among the teams that will not be featured on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this year.

Coach Mike Shanahan was asked on PFT Live if he'd consider having his team featured on the show, which takes a documentary-style look at an organization during training camp.


Shanahan said that he declined an opportunity to be a part of the program when he was head coach of the Denver Broncos, and in explaining why, described a reluctance to be in front of the camera.

"I just didn't feel comfortable with being in that situation," Shanahan said. "You know, I can't be myself. I don't think coaches can be their self and I'd like players to concentrate on their job. I don't know if it's old-school or what. You know, for me, I just didn't feel comfortable with that atmosphere."

Seems like something Pete Carrol and the neons would be interested in.
Support the troops, especially our snipers.

Admit it, you would LOVE to get to see the Skins on Hard Knocks. I know I would! Amazing show. For all that, I'm glad Shanny says no. Not a distraction the team needs.

I wonder what Danny thinks though. That's gotta be killing him to pass up on a marketing opportunity like that. Especially with a super star like RGIII in camp this year.

I know I'd love to see it. Sure, there is a potential for it being a distraction, but it would be such a unique opportunity to get an inside look at the organization that you'd otherwise never get to see, it would be great for Redskin fans.

And, this team might actually gain from the experience such national exposure might offer.

I'm sure the media would just find things to beat us over the head with.

And you can be sure Goodell would be watching, trying to find things he can fine us for to get back the cap space we're about to regain!!!

+ the shanny plan means being shush shush about team affairs... He'd never agree to it and I don't want the pukes getting an inside look at our progress.
