Hard Knocks 2019

Postby FreddieB25 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 4:36 pm

Looks like it's official we'll be on hard knocks this summer. I won't get to see it as I don't get HBO. Or is it on NFL network? If so I get that channel.

I don't get HBO either, but DirecTV usually has a deal for like $15. Then just cancel in Sept, it'll be worth it to get an up close personal look at what we've got.
HBO puts a behind the scenes, uncensored, feel to it and your always left wanting more. I watched every episode last year (browns) and knew they were going to be a team to watch out for. Raiders are TV gold and I can't wait.

I assume there will be condensed highlights of the show uploaded on youtube I can watch at my leisure. Aside from that I could care less. You know Gruden will be the star of the episodes with his Chucky drill sergeant persona on full display. All I care about is a productive and successful 16 game sked in our last season in Oakland.

Like this wasn't a foregone conclusion? No other team other than the Raiders would make sense from an entertainment view point. Get it over with and go to Vegas without distractions.

Branding is everything in sports. Gruden and his persona coaching some misfits and outcasts as well as moving to Sin city as long as their entertaining on the field and win their fair share of games can only help draw a new set of younger fans and fans who are on the fence. We need to rebuild our brand and legacy and the only way to do that is winning football games. That's all that matters at the end of the day.
