HBO Should Come To The Bucs

November 25th, 2010

rah 1014OK, Thanksgiving is supposed to be a fun day, despite the Lions’ putrid ways trying to ruin people’s feasts throughout the land. So let’s have some fun.

Yesterday, Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune posted on the Bucs TBO Twitter feed that HBO should come to Tampa to document the Bucs training camp in its annual “Hard Knocks” series.

HBO should consider Hard Knocks Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year. Bucs coach Raheem Morris mic’d up would be must see TV.

Anwar is right with that and Joe’s had conversations with Anwar before about this, but the series needs more than just one personality to focus on.

Other than Raheem, is there really and Bucs player who has a larger than life personality? Stylez White would be one. Davin Joseph, maybe. Other than that, there really isn’t anyone on the Bucs who may be remotely interesting to non-football fans (and that’s who HBO/Hollywood producers are after).

The best time for HBO to have come to Tampa would have been the training camp after the Bucs won the Super Bowl. That was like a buffet to a TV producer. Chucky, Warren Sapp, Meshaun Johnson, Simeon Rice, John Lynch, Martin Grammatica (who had enough quirks to warrant a feature), damn, that would have been the best Hard Knocks to date.

Alas, it didn’t happen.

Oh, another potential hangup with Anwar’s suggestion: There may not be a training camp in 2011.

    McCoy would be awesome. I also believe Blount has a outgoing personality. With that said I don’t think the Bucs need that in there locker room with them being such a young group.

    no thanks

    True, it would be nice for them to be featured on Hard Knocks but only if it’s really going to be one that people would look forward too.

    People know who LeGarrette Blount is. Ronde Barber is still a popular player. Gerald McCoy seems to have a pretty good personality. And yes, Raheem has a good sense of humor.

    Let’s wait a while before we even think about this. All I’m looking forward too is seeing the Bucs beat the Ravens on Sunday!

    Btw, GO COWBOYS! Beat the AINTS!

  5. Larry Says:

    Nope, other teams get to see the players we’ll try to slip onto the practice squad. I think we’ve picked up a couple of players that way.

    Joe, wouldn’t Aqib Talib be a great personality for the show too? And then the Tanard Jackson storyline might run through training camp as well.
