An NFL spokesman has said that reports of the Giants being among the finalists for ‘Hard Knocks’ are “totally inaccurate.” (Freeman, April 29).
The Giants, Steelers and Bears were reportedly the final three teams being considered for the show.
The Giants are technically one of eight teams that can be chosen to appear on HBO’s Hard Knocks this summer (PFT, April 26).
John Mara doesn’t mind other teams mugging for the cameras, but when it comes to the Giants appearing on the series, he’s against it.
“That announcement will come,” Mara said in 2010, “when I’m next to my father in Gates of Heaven cemetery.”
