Hard Knocks Reportedly Canceled by HBO
Hard Knocks on HBO has become one of the most popular sports shows on TV, but SI’s Peter King reported Saturday that it will be canceled for the upcoming season. King wrote on twitter No “Hard Knocks” this year. I repeat: No “Hard Knocks.”
HBO spokesman Ray Stallone recently told Sporting News “We are monitoring (lockout) developments and remain hopeful of presenting a new season of ‘Hard Knocks.’ Beyond that we are not going to speculate.”
Hard Knocks has given us great looks inside the training camps of the Jets, Cowboys, Chiefs, Bengals, and Ravens since debuting in 2001. The bright side is we won’t have to hear any more complaints about the amount of cussing by Rex Ryan. The downside is missing out on awesome moments like this.
