Seahawks say no to Hard Knocks

This is no a surprise as word around the team had been that the Seahawks did not have interest in being featured this season on HBO’s Hard Knocks.

But official confirmation of that fact has come today via this story from the National Football Post, quoting Seahawks’ general manager John Schneider.

“We understand the interest in this show, but would not want to bring a ton of attention to ourselves,” Schneider is quoted as saying.

No doubt the Seahawks would have been a very compelling subject for the show this season with the exceedingly high expectations and a number of really intriguing personalities (one can only imagine the way Richard Sherman would be portrayed).

But it is those high expectations that no doubt have the team wary of bringing any extra publicity its way — and it’s not as if the team needs any help selling tickets.

So this’ll be another year Hard Knocks will  have to look elsewhere.
