About Hard Knocks

Hard Knocks is an NFL and HBO-produced documentary series that follows the NFL training camp every season. Each year, one team is voluntarily chosen as the focus of the season. Of the teams featured on the show so far, none have ever won a Super Bowl and only 5 would go on to make it into the playoffs. We see the lives of the players, coaches and staff well as their families. You see the battles some of them go through as well as the closeness they have with inside jokes and some pranks. It's a great behind-the-scenes look that gives us a view of how a team behaves off the field. Football fans, it's a must-watch!

Hard Knocks's Relation To Sport Business

Hard Knocks focuses on the player side of professional sport. Specifically, the training and preparation for the focused team's upcoming season. The series looks more into the rookies of the team and their adjustments in playing in the NFL. Especially with the team's newest draft picks. It's these parts of the series that show a lot more of what goes on behind the scenes of a professional team. The series tries to make itself volunteer-based so that any team who wants to may volunteer. But, with contracts on the line, the league has made it so that should no one volunteer the NFL would select a team to be forced to participate. It's a part of the business that many may not agree with, but it is in place.
