    The Atlanta Falcons have declined an opportunity to appear in this year's edition of the HBO series "Hard Knocks", Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com reports. HBO has approached the Falcons several times over the last few seasons and general manager Thomas Dimitroff has had an open mind about appearing on the program. According to Yasinskas, the primary reason the Falcons declined the invitation to have their 2012 training camp featured on the popular program was a preference to have the focus be on their on-field product. The New York Jets, who were featured in the most recent edition (2010), are on the record as having interest in making a return appearance and the Jacksonville Jaguars are also interested in showcasing their club this summer. "We did express interest, and at this point we don’t know what HBO’s plans are," Jaguars spokesman Dan Edwards told Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union earlier this month.

    I have a friend that works for HBO and he said at least a dozen teams have said no when asked about the show.

    I think the Sheik would sign the Jaguars up but why would you want to watch that?
