No Hard Knocks For BucsMay 16th, 2011
Some of you may have heard that we were approached by the league about the possibility of being this year’s team on “Hard Knocks.” After discussing the idea and carefully considering the opportunity, we have respectfully declined. It was certainly an honor to be considered, and we think it is a good indication of the excitement and national interest that is forming around our team. This year, however, we believe it is in the best interests of the team to keep the focus on the field and what we hope to accomplish in 2011. As we told the league, we would be honored to be considered again in the future; it is always an entertaining and informative show and we look forward to watching whomever takes our spot this year.
Joe agrees with this line of thinking. The Bucs are still a very young team and really don’t need the distractions of having camera crews in their faces every waking moment.
When the team begins to establish itself, and more Bucs personalities begin to emerge, it will make for a better series.
Joe also has a hunch the lockout has in some way played a part in this decision.
