    The league will now be able to choose who will appear on Hard Knocks if no team volunteers. There are a few exceptions.

    • those with new coaches;

    • those that reached the playoffs in one of the previous two seasons;

    • those that appeared on "Hard Knocks" within the preceding 10 years.

  • So just keep making the postseason, and we can avoid ever having to worry about this. Awesome.

  • Jeezus. Even more incentive to stay in the playoffs, I guess.

    That is my feelings on it as well. If we end up being in a bad stretch they can be on it and fulfill their obligation for at least 10 years without worry. I do not see us being on the show for a long period of time, and I am happy.

  • Never watched it, never wanted to. Never want to see the Seahawks have anything to do with it.

    Good idea, staying in the playoffs for the next 10 years. :)
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • Side Note For Fun: Will be fun to see Harbaugh and the Niners on Hard Knocks in 3 years.

    Reality TV is an oxymoron.

    So, did you consider the Real Rob Report stupid? Because Hard Knocks is about the same, if just better produced.

    Well, I watched more of those than Hard Knocks, TBS. But I have limited bandwidth right now. The past few months I have had to limit my streaming video watching. IMHO, RRR was cute and funny in spots, but not that entertaining.

  • Seems odd that the league would agree to the playoff part. You would think all else being equal a better team on hard knocks = better ratings
