    I want to know what our compensation will be for participating. Must not be great, if they keep passing

    I don't know if it will come to that but I am also not sure John Mara really wants to shovel **** against that tide. The owners, except for him I think, voted for the program. My thinking is that he will work behind the scenes to avoid any public confrontation.
    What I am wondering is .... did the NFL sign something with HBO saying that we don't care about what the NFL teams think, well give you these picks of nfl teams to film... no matter what? I dont know if it was written into the new CBA or what, but it just feels like a breech of privacy. I just want to know where it was written for NFL teams to agree to this?

    1. I hear this report is false about the final 3.
    2. If it were true and IF the Giants were picked, it would be very "un-Mara" like to refuse to do something the league considers good for the NFL.

    Mr. Mara is much more concerned with what is good for the NY Giants

    and Hard Knocks is not one of those things

    He sure does seem adamant.

    I have spoken to him personally about it just a few months ago when I heard they were going to make it compulsory ... and to paraphrase what he said

    it was basically.... no cameras that are not our own will be within these walls. it is just not how we do things here

    Which explains why we get so little photographic/video evidence of practices.
