It was recently announced that the Oakland Raiders will be featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks”. The show that follows an NFL team around through their entire preseason.
It shows you the other side of Football. Allows you to get to know players on a personal level. And shows you all of the drama that comes with making some people millionaires.
The Raiders were the perfect choice, simply because of all the stars that are already there: Jon Gruden, Antonio Brown, Derek Carr, Richie Incognito, Mike Mayock, Paul Guenther, Mark Davis, Vontaze Burfict, and many other Raiders we’ll all soon become familiar with.
This show also comes on the eve of the Raiders changing cities. This will be their final year in Oakland as the team looks to Las Vegas as it’s next home.
Throughout the show I will be giving a recap following each episode. “Hard Knocks” premieres on August 6th.
